Different languages make the world a more colourful place to live in, and no one experiences this day-to-day more than Njoro.

As a taxi driver, he is in the position to transport many different customers. Many of his customers do not always speak Swahili or English, so he often finds himself in funny predicaments. In last week's episode, he encountered a Polish lady who was in Mombasa to visit her Kenyan boyfriend. Unfortunately, the boyfriend only spoke Swahili, while the girlfriend spoke English and Polish.

Njoro quickly recognised her accent and soon sparked up a conversation with her in English, leaving her boyfriend feeling left out. The boyfriend got angry and accused Njoro of trying to steal his lady from right under his nose. Of course this did not go down well with Njoro and a confrontation quickly occurred.
