In Kenya, the newly crafted “mambo ni matatu” ultimatum also applies to house hunting.
We are told that if one wants to move to a new house, during your house hunting missions, you must ensure that you: Do it on a Sunday, do it during the rainy season, and if possible, do it during the evening hours.
The first rule is meant to help you avoid houses near loud churches if you value your Sunday morning sleep.
The second rule is meant to help you avoid areas that appear decent during the dry season but once it starts raining, flooding becomes the order of the day.
The final rule is meant to help you avoid houses near loud bars and nightclubs that operate from evening to the wee hours of the night.
So, next time you want to move, be sure to follow these guidelines or else, as we say in Kenya, kitakuramba.
