Zubeida Koome life Story
“I first came to Nairobi from Meru in 2002. A friend picked me up at the bus stop near Tea Room.” She starts.
“Before leaving Meru, I was scared by the stories I had heard about crime, rape and all things peer pressure. I was terrified of this town! I held onto my friend’s hand all the way. I spent my first days in Nairobi in a Hostel in Ngara. I was the typical village girl who stayed in the hostel for fear of being robbed or raped.”
“For a long time, the only places I knew was the Kenya National Archives and Afya centre. One evening on my way from the School of Professional studies in Parklands, I got lost and found myself near the big smelly bridge in Eastleigh. I had to ask the people around for directions back to Ngara.” She narrates.
“I had never been to a club all my life though I was a good dancer. My Nairobi girlfriends finally convinced me to go out. I first stuck to my guns and took Sprite. After some convincing I tried out Smirnoff Red Ice. My friends actually convinced me that it was just another brand of soda! Indeed after tasting it, I could not differentiate it from a soda since it was sugary. To cut the long story short, I don’t know how I woke up in my bed the next morning.”
“My mother will be very shocked when she reads that I consumed alcohol despite the strict instructions that she had given the hostel caretaker. She would call him every time to tell him not to let me out of sight if I wasn’t in school.”
