Mchongoanos are uniquely formulated jokes that tend to exaggerate or bring out the worst of one’s physical characteristics, behaviours and intelligence.

The joke is on your father, grandma, dog, the size of your head or just the dumbness of it-Joshua Ogutu Muraya, author.


BINGWA receives hundreds of mchongoanos from BINGWA readers every week. We have included some here with English translations for everybody to enjoy wherever they are.

  • Wewe ni mshamba mpaka una game ya kulima kwa simu.

 You are so old-school, you even have a farming game on your phone.
