I Miss Nguata Francis
Just in case you weren’t born ‘back in the days’, he’s the guy who used to do the Weather Forecast on VoK and later KBC. In his days, the weather never got as cold and erratic as it does today. If you missed his weather report, all you had to do was take a look outside your window in the morning and know what to wear. You could also afford to take a shower at 6 in the morning and your body would be just fine.
But these are the days of the beautiful Peninah Karibe; the days days of ‘hata mukisema, siogi!’ The cold!
Last night, Peninah talked about the clouds giving way to sunshine today. This morning, the sun had obediently gathered enough psyche to peep through the clouds. That’s why many Kenyans like me left home in a T-shirt.
Halfway through the day, it’s raining cats, dogs, pigs, chicken… And I can almost guarantee you it will be sunny by 4pm. If this goes on, the sun might just decide to set at 3pm one of these fine days. And unless you’re reading this from Reykjavik, this isn’t normal.
Peninah, talk to your guys at the met dept and see if they can be a bit more serious with their forecasts.
