stefani.png Now that she is being beatified, I have read her letter written to someone in 1930 in 'gikuyu' language as she understood it. hehehehe. These white nuns and the priest were brunt and shameless.. In the letter she writes 'ongyenda no ongorere sulwari na sharti tondu.....(illegible) (illegible)..." loosely translated: 'if you can, please buy me a panty and a shirt because........." Someone must have deleted the last part :D.
I remember when i was a kid, a nun who we used to call Sista Wanjiku used to teach us 'kirira' or catechism.
One day she was called to the office and before she went she told us: Ndasye kwi father, no ningushooka. Muikare ta twana twega...na mutikasisane' :D
I dont know why they had a problem with words with 'th' always pronouncing them as 's'.

Every time I hear about Sr. Irene it reminds me of those days I was in St Teresa's mathari nyeri, that's one period of my life I went through hell, those consolata nuns they were cruel in the name of installing discipline

Most likely she only meant a blouse and a pair of trousers. Where I come from locals still call trousers thuruari.
I highly doubt. Thuruari its true means short...but that's the one for men. In her case, the nuns were NEVER allowed to don trousers or short shorts.(just like today).
She must have meant 'panty'

Instilling, not installing.

Ok, what do you mean by cruel? I, too, went to a catholic boarding primary school and was quite ok with it.:)

it can also be considered installing.

When i was an alter boy, the priest used to spank our asses telling us that he is instilling discipline, but from the command (prompt) in his voice, he was installing.
