Mwanaume ni… (a man is) (1/7)



Funny
1

This funny Kenyan phrase can be used in jest, but like every joke, there is some underlining truth in the statement.

Did you know men are more likely to die from road accidents or poor health than women?

Think about it “mwanaume ni kunywa pombe kali (a man should only drink whiskey” you drive drunk and get an accident.

“Mwanaume ni kuchapwa na baridi” (aman should not wear jackets), you get sick soon after.

The notion of men being tough is the root of the “Mwanaume” saying and it may be causing an increase in the male mortality rate.
