The entire neighborhood respected and admired Brian’s family. Moses, Brian’s father, was among the luckiest Kenyans who had the privilege of graduating in the late 80s. Immediately after graduation, he received a job offer at one of the well known local dailies as an editor. Within a few months of his employment, his performance was reviewed and his salary was increased to six-figure.
Moses was able to build a five-bedroom house at his home apart from the other house he had built for his parents. All two houses stood as a landmark in the entire village. It is after completing building the two houses that he married a beautiful lady. Within three years of his employment, he was able to buy a nice car.
In the seventh year of his marriage, his wife was expecting her third born. He knew that after her third born, he will have completed his childbearing dream. The family was taking two or more meals a day. Brian had no difficulties in finding friends. All his classmates wanted to be associated with him for various reasons.
Moses became an inspiration to the entire village. Young people would come to him for career guidance. Moses was also an active member of a church, something that intensified the admiration. With time, the entire neighborhood was almost a copy-paste of what he had done. Most people had a six-figure salary, built a five-bedroom house, driving a four-wheel car, having three children, taking at least two meals a day and married to one wife or husband.
Moses was among the pioneer of attaining the Kenyan dream that almost every young Kenyan is chasing today. Some don’t know exactly what they are chasing. However, if you interrogate them, you will realize that they are chasing the Kenyan dream.
Even though the narrative is changing from looking for a six-figure salary to building a business, most people who attain six-figure monthly income have a sense of accomplishment. Almost every young Kenyan today is working towards achieving the Kenyan dream. The most important integers for Kenyans are 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. It is not a dream so hard to achieve, continue chasing it with all your passion. The Kenyan Dream: Most Kenyans desire a six-figure income, owning a five-bedroom house, driving a four-wheel car, having three children, taking at least two meals a day and married to one wife or husband.
