If you're the kind of person who's usually punctual, it probably annoys you when people fail to show up on time, even worse when someone is habitually late. I know your pain. So I went searching for ways to deal with such people. Found many interesting responses but one stood out from the comment section of an article. Read it in the screenshot below.

I have Always disliked the the term "Africa time" which means late, to the extent that people have leaned to plan for it e.g if you want sherehe to start at 1pm you tell people to arrive at 11:30am

Lakini TBH this is not even a problem. Not unless he/she is your business partner and by turning up late harms your image. Hao wengine wote can be dealt with kienyeji style. If they are habitually late unajitoa pia wewe until they get the message.

but that's our culture, kuna unit in mba teaching about different cultures. Africans are generally known not to be in a hurry, Europeans are story tellers, japanese are very strict on time, Americans are usually straight to the point only facts, when dealing with international vendors, you'll know how to treat each, even them they generally don't get offended when we delay meetings we initiated 'coz that's what we are. you just find a balance not to offend the other party. kama wewe in nyeusi you must come alive to the fact that sherehe must start later, to avoid unnecessary stress and bile.
