Ladies and Gentlemen Maasai Mara is out, Kibera is in!
For those who feel empty; so blessed while the rest of the world is suffering; gather your pity filled backpack and head to the great Kibera slum.
“For where else can one see it all in one simple stop? The Aids victims dying slowly on a cold, cardboard bed. The breast less teenager. … Plastic-eating goats fighting small children … and — ah yes — the famous ‘shit-rolls-downhill-flying-toilets’. It is unbeatable.” Sarcastically summarized by a Kenyan columnist.
If this slum tourism business does not piss your guts off, I urge you to please turn in your Kenyan passport and or ID to the proper authorities. It is disgusting, inexcusable and down right inhuman.
I hope the slum tourists get all their pity filled pockets emptied by the ‘subjects’ they observer on their grand tour.
What is next? A museum in a western city where ‘conditions of poverty as observed in Africa’s slums’ is replicated with a portion of concession fees going toward the poverty political rhetoric campaign.
Fuck this shit! Now my Friday vibe is messed up.
