is an Arabic word that loosely translates into 'clout' or 'who you know'. It refers to using one’s connections and/or influence to get things done, including government transactions such as the quick renewal of a passport, waiving of traffic fines, and getting hired for or promoted in a job.
one guy is looking for a job at some company and he is more then qualified to get the job.

then a second guy who no experience at all and he gets the job.

The first guys asked a worker, why that the second guy gets the job.

the worker reply he cousin is a manger in the department.

the first guy said ahh i see he got wasta.
