The photographer traverses the length and breadth of the country calling out bad behavior everywhere. Corrupt traffic cops, petty muggers, jaywalkers, passengers scrambling for matatu seats, sex-for-fish mongers, Northern frontier cattle rustlers, boda boda organ donors, open air urinals, just to get started. Everywhere it exists, ‘ ushenzi’ is called out.
Diaper mentality is evidently become an accepted culture of individualism in Kenya. While we all accept that government never misses an opportunity to display incompetence, civilians are not exactly blameless. A good portion of the ulcer-inducing traffic jams in Nairobi can be traced to a single obtuse driver refusing to give way. The habit of traffic obstruction is so commonplace, one suffers abuse from other drivers for road courtesy. Without traffic police supervision, drivers will be content to glare at each other, gridlocked at an intersection, each protesting their right of way.
