You will get another job and they will give you Ksh.150,000 if you have more than 3 years of experience. Three months into the new job you will buy a car. You will wake up at 5/6am and get home after 6/7pm everyday. You will see nothing wrong with this because "you are educated" and that's how "educated people" do it. Your street smart friends who have flexible careers will visit you at work because if its not yet 5pm you are not allowed to leave, even when there's no work. You will be focused on your career and you will not want to hear anything about starting a side hustle because "you are educated". Your excuses will be "I don't know how to sell" or "I don't have time". At that time you are struggling financially. Debit orders are busy with your salary. You won't see a side hustle as a way out, you will see another job as a way out. Companies will take advantage of you, overwork you and underpay you because you are not street smart to beat them at their own game. You will work for horrible bosses who dont understand the importance of family time and you will always be forced to choose work over your loved ones. You will win employee of the month left, right and centre and you will get stupid vouchers as a reward. You will go back to school and study ENDLESSLY, this course and that course all in the name of "I want a better life" and chase promotions at work . You will get your 5 years/ 10 years certificate of service with ksh. 60,000/ ksh. 80,000 incentive that will only get you a weekend in Durban.

You will buy a house in your 30's just after paying off your car and commit yourself to a 20-year debt. And you will not want a house in the township or a starter pack house that you can actually afford to pay faster. You will go straight to the "burbs" because "you are educated". You will feel the punch of rates and taxes and learn a new bad habit of buying grocery, petrol and data with a credit card. After paying off this ONE house for 20 years, you will be in your 50's.

At 55 you will retire. First thing you will do with your retirement money is clear your debts. Then travel a little since you never had money to travel in your working days. Once you are done with the debts and leisure....wait for it.... With your remaining retirement money you will now want to start a business after spending 30 years in corporate. Street smart people will never spend 30 years in corporate no matter how much they got paid. At 55, when that business fails it's GAME-OVER for you. But if you are street smart and decide to start a business in your twenties or thirties, you will have time to fail as many times as possible until you get it right. At 55 you will get a heart attack if a business started with retirement money fails.

Having the "I'm educated" attitude will leave you broke, struggling and in debt. Street smart people will make more money than you and progress faster in life because they do not have the "I'm educated" pride. They are open to selling stuff from the boot if their cars and they are open to any job or business no matter how undignified it may be viewed by society. They do no suffer from "what will people say?" What's the point of having a dignified job title when your bank account is shameful and on overdraft? What's the point of "being educated" if you are going to achieve your goals with personal loans?

Graduates, don't let your qualifications prison you. Be open to anything until you find your big break. In most cases, your big break is not even related to your qualification. Don't let your qualifications stereotype you into thinking that there's only one way to make it in life.

When you see nutcases like Sparkles and hardwood going postal on Wazoo, it is because of the above.

My Friend WaMigunda,

You have a point but you are speaking at "them" in the wrong language.

Have a look at this:

She has done what she’s supposed to do.

She went to school without falling pregnant, without the truancy and rebellion of youth.

She passed, joined university, drank, partied, slept with some amazing guys and some first-class shitheads, graduated, got a job, met a man, dated him properly, married him in a church in a white sleeveless gown, got babies and worked her ass up the ladder in the office, pushing and jostling, Sun Tzu’s The Art Of War tucked under her arm.

She engages in constructive social forums and wider political worldviews.

She will occasionally participate in charity walks, doesn’t let hair grow under her arms and has so far planted seventeen trees.

She prays often and even visits a children’s home every other year bearing shopping to cleanse the passion with which she has wanted to acquire a certain lifestyle.

She has done everything, well most things, yet, now in her late 30’s she feels a tidal wave of restlessness breaching her walls.

If you are going to "speak" about the "A list" among the Vitural Republic of Wazua, then "speak" to them in their language.

A language they will understand.

Then sit back, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the show.

That is the way I would do it.

Ama namgani my Frien.

I realised a long long time ago that people who complain about employment are closet employees..

Just jealous that someone other than them can actually get a job.

When you go to Facebook, you will get 1232 of such posts. Usually the person who wrote it or shared it is a broke guy looking for a job.

Thieves are not good people. Tumeelewana?

From the write up, then the problem is not the educated person but the education. Education is a form of conditioning that comes with perceived expectations. There's nothing wrong with employment in my view as long as you focus on building yourself and saving for future capital plus understanding that an employee's job is to further build on the dream of the company founder to greatness. The success of an employment system is to create enough fear for the employee to not see further than its prison walls.
I can tell you that when I was employed, my pay would not last past the 27th day of the month. If it were not for the small coins deducted to go to the sacco and some shares in the NSE...

But that said, business in Kenya is not for the faint hearted, it's easier to sh*t bricks than do business in Kenya. If you have a good job, keep it for now. Honestly.

BBI will solve it
