With Hilary Bainemigisha
A fair lady sent me mail complaining that Kenyan girls are taking away their men without fear or favour!

Women stealing men has been as ongoing as lunch-supper-breakfast, but for someone to link it to a particular group of people, there is cause for investigation.
So, I sniffed around. I was told that these Kenyan girls can be aggressive, determined and have no inhibitions - being far away from kith and kin, who would frown at public romance.
They are articulate and, it seems, it is only the right size that is being imported into the country.
Who could have thought that the same country that produced Kibakiâ€™s wife can actually produce more compliant beauties? Scan universities in this land and you will return singing the Kenyan national anthem.
Maybe that is why many men are not paying attention to the current election campaigns. And thanks to Kenyan chicks, guys in town have a greater motivation to work harder and be more impressive. Talk about finding a silver lining under dark clouds!
But let us face it. There is no problem with Kenyan girls. The problem is with our quality of love affairs.
Nature is perhaps the best illustration. Look at wildlife. In a herd of buffaloes, the most healthy and fit ones move ahead of others, followed by the least fit, leaving the sick, aged and disabled to take the tail.
When lions and hyenas feel like a buffalo lunch, they chase from the tail and grab the weakest and least difficult to fell. That way, the fittest is left to survive as nature weeds out the weakest. So is it in relationships. They donâ€™t behave like the Electoral Commission, which gives similar campaign vehicles to all candidates; their popularity notwithstanding.
If you donâ€™t strengthen your love from inside in terms of quality and quantity, you expose it to hyenas, which are ever hovering around for a kill. But they donâ€™t kill the fittest. If your man starts speaking good Kenyan Swahili, you donâ€™t turn your guns at his teacher. Often, it is because there is something wrong about your love that probably makes him vulnerable to hyenas.
What matters, dear patients, is not the Kenyan girls or boys but the quality of relationship you have. The curse of all love affairs is that you can never hang your boots saying you have finished the race. Love is an everlasting struggle for perfection. Make the comfort of your partner your priority and you may never have to worry about hawks. But when there is a fever somewhere and you allow it to go untreated, you are actually forcing Beloved to vote for the opposition.
Hyenas will notice that your animal is limping and disorganise the affair. Then you will come crying about Kenyan hyenas. Learn, therefore, that hyenas are not the manufacturerâ€™s error. They will be there whether your neighbour is Kenyan or not.
And if you realise that this particular brand knows how to jump at the prey, add a spring into your affair to be able to duck as you work on the affair to be healthy enough to move upfront on the league table.
Healthy lovers keep ahead in the herd, away from the hyenas at the rear.
Is your love fit to survive infidelity?
