Dr Wamutitu said that women find it easier to adjust to life abroad compared to men. He points out that the United States is a very individualistic self-centred society and this has had an adverse effect on the Kenyan man as we know him.
He observes that due to the hectic lifestyle in Western countries, Kenyan men have no social support systems. “They mostly keep to themselves, bottling up a whole lot of things. When they cannot hold it any more, they explode. The results vary, but in most cases, they are devastating.”
