From chicken to ground nuts, it seems the domestic workers were out to impress their bosses. And they did it in style.


“My DM landed this morning and in style, if this are not blessings then what are they?” one Lilian Li posted alongside a picture of a chicken and a suck that appeared to contain maize.

Another impressed employer added that her domestic worker brought her 10kg of ground nuts, green banana’s and a cockerel. “I thank God for her,” she said.

“Wangu pia aliingia vivyo, hivyo. Kwanza kuku alileta ilitega mayai kweli kweli until jana tukaamua kuikula,” (Mine arrived the same way and the chicken she brought has been laying eggs until yesterday when we decided to slaughter it), Norah N Kang’ara wrote.
