UEFA Champions League

Kenyans Impressed by Photo of Victor Wanyama, McDonald Mariga Helping Parents Prepare Vegetables

No matter how far up the social ladder you go in Africa, your relationship with your parents will always be that of a young child.

This means that the loud and overpowering high and mighty always return to their parents with the humility of a dove.

For this reason, a picture of Victor Wanyama and his brother McDonald Mariga assisting their parents in the hamlet with vegetable preparation struck a chord with Kenyans. The two siblings, who played professionally for the national team Harambee Stars and overseas, are among Kenya's most accomplished football players.

The 31-year-old Wanyama has enjoyed successful runs at Celtic, Southampton, and Tottenham Hotspur. He is the first Kenyan player to score in UEFA Champions League history.

Kenyans reactions 

Johnny Njoroge: "These ones are under strict instructions from their mother. To prepare the veggies before they go loitering around. Never underestimate the power of mothers. Age to them is just a joke." 

Morris Mutua: "When you reach the village there is a different government and there are the citizens as well. Are we together? You will obey what you will be told, period." 

Ibrahim Simiyu: "After one of them lifting UEFA champions league and the other coming second. They melt my heart." 

Rarry Johns: "Your mother will never know whether you are a president, won UEFA, or you are a CS.To her you remain the boy she saw on day one."
