Most of our mothers are a bit traditional. Their way of doing things is quite different from our way.

One peculiar thing with our mums, over the years, has been their desire to cover furniture. Chairs, tables, cupboards and sometimes even TVs, there had to be some kind of cloth on top. It doesn’t matter where you came from – Nairobi, Nyeri, Naivasha, they all did it. That’s why this photo perfectly summarizes Kenyan mothers.
