The literal English translation of the expression Chakula is the noun “food” and it is used to name bottom homosexual men. Finding a clear origin to the expression seems an impossible task. However, based on what has been investigated, we dare to point out that it could be due to the generic concept word chakula = food as opposed to nyama = meat, whose connotations associated with heterosexual sex and women, in particular, are common in other languages and also in Swahili, where we find for example that nyama is also a slang for vagina. Bottom homosexuals, therefore, would be an alternative to a real meal, simple nourishment to get rid of hunger. But hey, it’s just a theory.
