30-Students-take-a-standardized-test-in-KenyaWhat happens when a student from Kariobangi writes a Swahili composition- Insha to be precise. With the swahili language highly eroded and replaced with sheng’ in most parts of Nairobi especially in Eastlands, pupils are finding it hard to construct compositions without the influence of Sheng’.

Here is a sample of one such composition that has been doing the rounds on the internet.
