The things you can expect from any pastor in a trotro

I don't know about you, but I most often can't stand the preachers who join public buses (trotro) just to shout at the top of their voices.

These preachers/pastors usually stand out in any crowd if you have grown the urge to quickly spot them out. I thought I had developed the perfect algorithm to sort out these pastors from regular Bible-holding passengers in trotros, but one user of Facebook shared what looks like the ultimate list to help you stay away from these pastors in trotros. (Or maybe, draw closer to them if you're into that kind of thing)

Pointed Shoes On African Pastor

Any kind of pointed shoe must be okay here, but particularly the canoe-looking types with super uneven soles would serve a greater purpose.

Or a Bible in any of the local parlance spoken wherever the pastor is.

4. Hoarseness

5. Handkerchief / Face Towel

The things you can expect from any pastor in a trotro

Handkerchief

This can serve a dual purpose; to block spittle and to wipe sweat when in hot, which means all. trotros.

6. Ability to collect money with agility

Trotro Preacher

The best trotro preachers even sometimes collect the fare from passengers on behalf of the driver and his conductor aka "mate".

7. Ability to cling on to "trosky" like the old rugged cross

Trotros jerk most often. This is maybe because most trotro drivers are jerks who spontaneously decide to put the lives of all passengers at risk, and you'd be at greater risk if you are standing in the bus to preach.

There you have it.
