How to behave when given a lift to/from village this Christmas season:


  1. Keep time
  2. Don’t put your arms on the window like a boss
  3. If the owner is traveling with his family, take a back seat. Don’t jostle for the front seat with the wife.
  4. Don’t turn yourself into a D.J. if he has tuned to Radio west/Buddu FM or Kirinya FM don’t switch to your favourite FM
  5. Ask before you roll the window down, It may be faulty
  6. If you notice the car owner is traveling with a woman other than wife, don’t start asking him how his family is doing it might be that the car owner told the young lady that he is single.
  7. Avoid stupid questions like “how much does a car like this cost”
  8. Don’t turn the car into a pick up so that you go buying charcoal, potatoes, boiled bananas etc along the road. Did you hire the car?
  9. Note: not all hitch-hickers journeys end at GPO, Accept to alight anywhere. 10. Carry appropriate items. Don’t carry chicken, duck, puppy, tonto etc lest you leave your clans man car dirty
  10. Before you hitch a lift ensure you bathe and don’t eat a cocktail of all manner of food e.g a mixed meal of Mputa and eggs means you will be belching in your clansman car throughout the journey
  11. Don’t rear a snake in your pocket (meaning don’t be too stingy or fear digging deep into your pocket) Even if you are broke, you can buy roasted maize for others in the car to enjoy I Rest My Case.
