Despite questioning the vendor multiple times about the accuracy of the cost, the man defended the price of ugali to be Sh800

YouTuber Kino in Kibera Kibandaski

Kenyans online have expressed a range of reactions following an incident involving a visiting French YouTuber, Kino Yves, who was charged an exorbitant amount for a plate of matumbo and ugali at a popular makeshift eatery popularly known as Kibandaski.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Kino Yves documented his experience, interacting with one of the local residents while enjoying his meal.

The YouTuber was visibly upset when he received the bill, realizing he was being charged Sh1,000 for the ugali and matumbo plate, a price that was five times higher than he anticipated.

Despite questioning the vendor multiple times about the accuracy of the cost, the man defended the high price.

Kino expressed his disbelief, stating, "Just before you told me this is Sh200, so the ugali is Sh800? So anyone who takes ugali here pays Sh800?"

Recognizing the potential scam, the Frenchman decided to pay Sh500 for the meal, acknowledging that the actual cost of the ugali was significantly less than the amount he was asked to pay.

The online community in Kenya responded with dissatisfaction, attributing the incident to the behaviour of Kenyan leaders that has trickled down to the citizens.

Some criticised the Kibandaski attendant, suggesting that he lacked a business-oriented mindset and should have used the opportunity to promote his business.

Additionally, there were concerns that such actions could tarnish the country's image and discourage foreigners from visiting.

Below are some of the reactions:
