A similar question was asked by Alexander the great to the naked philosophers of India.

Mombasa, Zanzibar, Seychelles in the 1930s. Am surprised they were very advanced unlike watu-wa-bara who were still walking naked. What i really didn't like is the mzungu commentator calling African dances "childish".

Old Nairobi was EXTREMELY DANGEROUS for the natives....

https://www.nation.co.ke...1260-39uxg6z/index.html

Quote:
Killing Africans was sort of a favourite sport by the whites. Some of the notorious cases included the shooting of 21 unarmed Africans outside the Norfolk Hotel in 1922. It was a common feature for a white settler having an evening drink at the terraces of the Norfolk or the Stanley Hotel to draw his rifle and aim at an African passing by in the distance.

Such a settler would be wildly cheered and offered a drink by colleagues, especially if his shot was so “perfect” that it killed the African at the first aim!

Some communities in Kenya still dress this way. As late as 1960s,Okuyos were wearing mithuuru!
