Having worked in the private and public sectors, I have come to a conclusion that Kenyans are less productive than citizens of western countries (I am not sure about Africa). Take for instance the average productivity of a Kenyan public servant on a Friday. Today at work I noted that about 3/4 of the staff had checked out at 2:00 pm while some left for shaggz yesterday. At one time I was working for an international organization that had a blend of Kenyans na watu wa mayuu (majorly from Europe and Asian countries) and we barely kept up with the pace. The whites and Indians were very efficient and usually met their deadlines with ease. Kenyans are generally not time conscious.... yes we do get to work early and leave at the stipulated time (except fridays) but we hardly have good management of personal time and rarely monitor our daily objectives. Meetings with a 30 minutes agenda end up taking the whole day...tasks that can be completed in hours take a week...minutes that could be prepared in half an hour take a few days...lunch and tea breaks are lengthy etc etc... mushene kwa ofisi... Only time that people are productive, efficient and effective is when tasks are due or there is some pressure mounting... One word for all this LAZY..
