One of the most terrifying things growing up Kenyan is arriving home late.

Our parents, especially mothers, would stay up all night waiting patiently to ambush us upon our return.

We dreaded it and looked forward to finally moving out and having a whole lot more freedom to live like adults. Looking back, it’s actually quite funny how our parents reacted and the sort of questions they asked.

A video by YouTube channel Cheka TV shows Kenyan parents reacting to their daughter arriving from a birthday party late at night.
