Maybe they haven't seen enough Sex and the City. The Washington Post Foreign Service reports that strollers are just not popular in Kenya. Marketed as prams (and unloaded from lorries, I guess), strollers are seen as cold, distant cages and an affront to the traditional mode of transporting a baby, slung across a mother's back.
It's not that Kenyans reject modernity, explains one stroller salesgirl who's clearly not on commission, it's just that they don't want to "damage the relationship between a mother and a child."
Suggestions, people? Here's one from the "When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail" department of Daddy Types: market prams to African dads, whose complete absence in the article obviously means they're worried that a sling makes them look fat.
In fact, it only makes you look like a hippie. Kick it Kenyan-style yourself with a baby sling from Maya Wrap. Available in a range of fabrics that match nothing you own. [Thanks, Matt!]
