White Woman Insults Kenyans woman at a Nairobi supermarket
A woman shopping at the popular French Giant retail Carrefour located at the Hub in Karen has launched a complaint about the racial abuse she was allegedly subjected to.
Wangu Wa Muendo, who was shopping at the supermarket, took to Facebook to narrate how a white woman discriminated against her and Kenyans in general on Saturday 30 September 2017.
According to Muendo, the white lady refused to queue and even threw her items which she had placed at the counter in Carrefour.
She divulged that the supermarket’s management was reluctant to help her at the hands of her adversary and simply watched as the white woman threw tantrums.
“I got into the queue like a civilized individual. This beautiful white woman comes from around the corner and comes to stand at the front of the queue. An elderly black man was next in line and seeing she has two little girls with her, he does the gentlemanly thing and lets her pass. She proceeds to explain to all that, we lazy Africans are the reason why we aren’t progressing in life. The elderly gentlemen proceeds to the next counter.
“The time comes for the beautiful white woman to pay for her items and leave. I take this opportunity to start placing my yogurt, dhania and bread on the counter.
“She puts her arm across my chest and pushes me aside and tells me to wait until she is out of the supermarket.
“I duly ignore her as I think she looks like she has issues of her own.
“She picks up my bread and some of the yogurts and proceeds to throw them on the floor.
“At this point, all the black people in the queue are now requesting for the manager to show up.
“I request the teller to get hold of a manager. He calls someone but no one picked his calls.
“A security guard showed up. He STARTED to TRY to tell us to stop shouting at the beautiful white woman. The teller was there to correct that ideology immediately. He heard the story and left,” she recounted.
Muendo noted that after the whole incident the white woman went ahead to call all African a bunch of lazy people.
“This beautiful white lady proceeded to tell all of us in the queue that we are lazy Africans and we don’t deserve our country. She paid off her bill and left,” she wrote on Facebook.
On Monday, Carrefour came out to condemned the incident noting that it had launched an investigation.
