Many men getting lampooned by their wives suffer from two rampant male maladies: alcoholism and erectile dysfunction. The inability to rise to the occasion when it matters is a common male problem. Some men even drink to enhance their mood.
But as one matures, bodily function diminishes and some of the lithe moves of youth are consigned to fond memories.
In the upper class, one can seek medical intervention or Viagra to salvage their dignity. However, down in the trenches, hard up and condemned to cheap liquor, options are scant.
Since generations of men have wielded power over wo men, the current generation is held liable for the transgressions of their predecessors. Ours is a hen-pecked generation but do not expect anyone to admit it openly.
Men are still frequented stereotyped as the corrupt politician, cheating husband or the hopeless alcoholic. Yet the average guy has no access to power, is intimidated by his wife’s financial position and usually too broke to get high regularly.
Guys are in a crisis, suffering in silence, openly scorned by wo men.
From funeral to funeral
Politicians have gradually turned funerals into place to milk social capital. As a result, bored villagers with no access to real celebrities remain enthralled by the latest coalition govern ment intrigues dished out a funeral.
In rural Kenya, a funeral of a prominent personality is really the best place to catch up with your MP. It is a one off chance to rub shoulders the big names of the area and importantly get your local MP to sponsor a drink because his sighting in your parts will be rare after the elections.
