Kenya's top media personality Jeff Koinange has painted a picture of how challenging life in the diaspora is, contrary to what many are made to believe.
Speaking recently during his morning radio show on Hot 96fm, Jeff and his co-host Jalango gave a break down of how Kenyans in the United States are subjected to high taxation, making it almost impossible to save anything at the end.
To further debunk the myth that life in the diaspora is a walk in the park, Jeff narrats that sometimes Kenyans are forced to work up to 18 hours a day and six days a week, with one only has one day a week to rest.
Koinange gives an example of himself when he worked at the McDonald’s in the late 80’s and how he took home a minimum wage of 8 dollars an hour. He says wages for Kenyans in the US are subjected to up to 50 percent taxation, that in addition to numerous other expenses.
Koinange hints that a times home is better than in the diaspora. Watch the video here:
