Bonjour!
vous savez qu'un jeune garçon peut mettre au monde même dix enfants avant son mariage et il ne vieillira jamais. Mais chez la jeune fille c'est tout à fait le contraire, et sans oublier aussi que c'est la jeune fille qui porte 9 mois de grossesse dans son ventre pendant que l'homme est toujours là entrain de s'embrouiller dans ses affaires. Sur ce, il faut toujours être "EKENGE" comme on le dit en swahili.
Merci beaucoupe et continuer à commenter

Hello!

You know that a young man can father ten children before he’s married and he’ll never age a bit. But for a young woman it’s the exact opposite, not to mention that it’s the young woman who endures 9 months of pregnancy in her stomach, while the man is there just going about his business. About this, we must always be “EKENGE,” as we say in Swahili.

Thanks so much and keep commenting.

Merci

Chère Anuarite,

Je comprends très bien votre colère et votre indignité. Merci d’avoir exprimé vos émotions ici. Je n’ai qu’une seule question : qu’est-ce que cela veut dire, « Ekenge » ?

Merci encore, et souvenez-vous—nous vous écoutons.

Sincèrement,
LightMyWay

Bonjour

Merci beaucoup ma chère! "EKENGE" signifie être clairvoyant dans la vie; surtout chez les filles car ceux sont eux qui sont toujours victime de cette dernière " grossesse".
Merci beaucoup!
Anuarite.
