there was this drunk back in my village, Marigo-ine whose name translated to ‘chicken or hen. he was ‘ngoko’ nguku yaani, eh.

i dont know if

it has something to do with his cowardice, or a poultry farm he ran before i was born, i found people calling him that. but one thing was for sure about him; alcohol was his darling!

so, on his usual rowdy drunken stupors, he would refer to any young man he found on the way as ‘ jamba ya awa’.

ukuga atia jabaawa‘ / what do you have to say the warrior of…

jamba ya awa, said in that all-common kikuyu rustic drawl..sounds like jack bauer with a silent ‘ck’!

but i dont say. both names refer to heros.

as Wambua Sammy would say. just a thought!
