5 things you should always carry during the rainy season

What every Nairobian should have during the rainy season.

To be prepared for the onslaught of rainwater that can pour relentlessly for up to five hours you need to carry a few things other than the obvious umbrella and pair of gumboots.

Things you should always carry when it rains

1. Shower cap

When hair gets wet, it gets smelly. If you have long hair, you should always have a shower cap on your person should the floodgates open.

2. Extra socks

Due to flooding on the streets, it's never a guarantee that your feet will stay dry. Always carry an extra pair of socks to wear when you get to work.

3. Plastic lining

Since plastic bags got banned, you can re-use packaging from other products which you can use to protect your belongings in your bag or purse.

4. Slippers

If you have shoes that are waterlogged, it's always good to have something you can change into at the office while your shoes dry out. Furlined bathroom slippers with your extra socks can work wonders for your cold feet.

5. Extra jacket

Should your overcoat get drenched, it's always good to have something to change into when you get to your destination.
