Nding’oing’o

We have only found a reference of the expression Nding’oing’o, and although it is something that we do not usually do, we have decided to include it in this dictionary hoping Kenyan readers can confirm its use. According to the information at our disposal, it is a word that, like the word “mende,” would be part of Kenyan prison jargon. It would literally be translated into the English language as a “dung beetle” in clear reference to the excrements that this insect surrounds itself and feeds on. We seem to understand that Nding’oing’o, as “mende”, refers to the “male” alpha prisoner but don’t take our word for that. Although this expression reminds us of others like Mostacero, Mayate, and Cucarrón, we will continue looking for explanations…
