We have all heard about the popular saying, “Mombasa raha”. Mombasa Kenya is the town where many Kenyans go for their holidays.
Part of Mombasa’s attraction is the belief that Kenyan coastal women are great lovers. However, some clever women from upcountry have taken advantage of this stereotype.
So, what are the other reasons why people visit Mombasa?
1 Bragging rights on Facebook and Twitter that you visited Hotels in Mombasa and other Kenyan coast attractions
In this age of the social media, Kenyans are all pressured to reveal even the tiniest details of our lives. If you succumb to the pressure, then you are bound to fake details of your social life in order to look “cool.”
People have been known to unexpectedly drop in on their friends and relatives to Mombasa Raha. They then proceed to take a few photos of themselves standing on the Kenyan Ocean’s edge, in popular joints around the town, and other pleasure spots.
It doesn’t matter if they could afford the trip. A few flashy photos on Facebook are worth the effort.
2 Looking for medicine men and witchdoctors In the Kenyan Coast
For superstitious people, Mombasa Kenya is the ultimate destination for love charms, and love potions.
There are people who even claim that at Mombasa city, there are cats who turn into humans at will. No one has ever confirmed this.
3 To look for sperm donors from Mombasa men
Women look for different qualities in potential mates. For some, the Arab men in Mombasa Raha are the ultimate fantasy.
So they travel to the town hoping to meet one and get married at the Kenyan coast, or in the least, get a child with Arab genes.
