Newly elected MP for Nyali Mohamed Ali is not going to join the bandwagon.

He posted on his Instagram, “I, Mohamed Ali Mohamed do not support any move to increase my salary and that of my fellow elected Members of Parliament. I have fought for equality and fairness all through my career and my first move as a Parliamentarian will not be to enrich myself. “

He continued, “40% of my countrymen live on an average of 10000 shillings or less. I do not see the purpose of an increment without ensuring that we create a legal framework for our countrymen to generate wealth FIRST. Count my vote against this.”

This was echoed by Jaguar – the Mp for Starehe who tweeted, “Just to categorically state; I am not in support of a pay rise. Count me out. #MPsPay #mwamkompya #starehe.”

Eunice Nyaga‏ added, “Good but do it on main stream media so that more people can hear you. Please remember to sing the “Kigeugeu song”.

Things You May Be Addicted To Without Your Knowledge

People carry different activities for pleasure and entertainment to refresh their minds and for relaxation. But sometimes you may not realize you are practically addicted to the activities and hence it becomes hard to stop.

Here are some things you may not know you are addicted to:

1. SPORTS

Sports and games are a form of entertainment which help people feel relaxed when either playing or watching. Playing or watching has no harm at all but it becomes an addiction when you spend more or even all the resources you have just to enjoy sports.

Believe me some people stay up late or even miss their work just because they never had enough sleep because of watching a match. They gamble expensive materials and gifts for the winning matches of which is good if they are able but when a person gambles the only little thing he/she owns, then it becomes an a problem. Some even fight just because their favorite team has been defeated and do other crazy things.

2. BETTING

gambling

Its a form of entertainment and the same time a way of finding some cash by trying your luck. This has affected many where a person can afford to use all the cash they have just to bet and later loose everything. Betting is a serious addiction where students are even betting their school fees.

3. POLITICS

Every person is affected directly or indirect by the phenomenon of politics. But when it becomes an addiction then it’s serious and dangerous. When it comes to electing leaders everybody does so and its over but to some people, politics will never end; they talk politics, they eat politics and they wear politics. When it comes to political parties; between party A and B, a person will never have a clear explanation why s/he is so much into party B.

4. RELIGION

When I talk of religion I mean any cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, world, texts, sanctified places, ethics or organizations that relate humanity to the supernatural or transcendental. Remember there is a difference between being religious and believing in supernatural beings.

Its ok to belong to a certain religion, but when one focuses on it than believing on the supernatural then that is a religion addiction. The more religious one is, the more s/he believes in what the other members of the religion believe and not about focusing on the supernatural.

Love

5. RELATIONSHIP

You may wonder how is this related to addiction but let me explain it to you. Remember romance relationship is the one involved here. According to Bentham philosophy; We start to make some kind of distinction between our emotions and our rationality when relationship is concerned between the involved parties. This means when one decides to leave a relationship then the other one should agree and move on. Though it isn’t easy you should take time before starting another relationship. Some run into building another relationship in the name of ‘healing wounds’ thinking it’s the best option of which starting a new one is easy but breaking up is another story.

The guy can’t take being in the friend zone anymore and asks his friends to hold him and even ‘team mafisi’ because the girl has made him go ‘gaga’ and they are going to loose a member.

Sauti-Sol

Signs Of A Toxic Mother-In-Law

Marriage is a union between two people but in it there is always the family of both the bride and the groom.

There are in-laws who will make your life a living hell immediately you get married and go to live at your husband’s place.

Here are signs that you are have a toxic mother-in-law

1. She is always right.

She is always right, without exception. Which means that she’s never wrong. She’ll never admit being wrong, and she will never apologize for anything.  In her eyes, you (and possibly your spouse) are the only people to blame.

2. She is dismissive.

She will ignore you for the most part, conveying that you don’t matter to her. She will not listen to a word you say. She’ll ask you if you’re hungry, hear “no,” and still put food on your plate. She’ll also disregard any of your accomplishments as insignificant and unworthy of her attention. Only things that have value to her are important.

3.You will not have your space as a wife.

She will not respect your words, choices or personal space. She will come to your house uninvited and unannounced, expecting you to welcome her with open arms and be grateful for the honor of her visit. She will look with disgust at how filthy your place is, and how unmannered your kids are.

4. If you are staying at her house, she will tell you what to wear and what not to wear. If you were used to putting on clothes without anyone questioning you then you will have to persevere when your mother-in-law starts dictating what you should put on.

5. To establish her dominance and to prove that she was right about you, she will expect you to do things that please her.

That would include you wanting to spend time with her, appearing at every family event, learning her way of cooking, cleaning and just about everything else under the sun (because her way is clearly better), adopting her religion and culture, and last but not least, blessing her with grandchildren when she’s ready to be a grandma. If you fail to do any of that, you are indeed a rotten daughter-in-law, and she has a right to complain about you to anyone who will listen.

Why Ladies Stay In Loveless Marriages (Audio)

Yesterday, a woman sent a message to Maina Kageni on Classic 105 explaining how she has been hurt by her husband who told her that she is no longer attractive.

That call brought in another issue to some ladies who decided to express the challenges they go through but still hold on to their marriage. In addition they insisted that it is not because of the children that they hold on to those marriages but the fear of how the society will view them.

A lady called in and explained how she has been unhappy in her marriage because she lost trust with her husband for the last three years.

The reason was because the man did something behind her back which to her confirmed that he did not trust her. He could drink and when asked, he denied.

When asked by Maina Kageni why she is still in that marriage, she said,

“I do not think I can trust any other man. It takes a lot of courage to leave your home and go especially if you are a woman. Emotional feelings, spiritual courage and even soul searching. It has a great impact to a woman, how the society will view you.”

She also added that,

“We are all different in our upbringing, background and even opinions. In general women are shy of the society.”

Below is the whole conversation:

Here Are Tips To Living A Positive Life

Negativity can be hard to eliminate if you keep on having negative thoughts. Although it may seem difficult, this negative feeling is all about one’s mindset. This means that if you think negatively, you will view all the things around you in the same manner. Instead of this, why not try to look for the bright side of any negative situation?

Here’s how you can make life better:

Surround Yourself With Positive People

They say that habits and attitudes can be contagious. For this reason, it is important that you surround yourself with positive people who will encourage you to do your best and help you attain whatever goals you have. It would also help if you start weaving positive activities in your life.

happy-couple-4

Start Being Different

Instead of contemplating about what can be the possible effects of a certain situation in your life, start thinking about the best ways to prevent the impact of such situation. It is already part of living to take risks. What’s important is that you are prepared for the things that life can bring. Use your negative experiences to make better decisions and build your character.

Share Your Problems

Dealing with your problems on your own can have a detrimental effect on your health. Allowing yourself to struggle can just make things worse. Sharing your hardships with someone you trust allows you to receive some pieces of advice and encouragement that you can use to re-focus on your courage, perseverance, and strength.

Create a Positive Environment

Making developments or changes in your office space, room, or house can make you feel welcome, relaxed, and different.

Do not complain too much.

Be Optimist

Being an optimist does not mean that you have to pretend that nothing bad will happen. This mentality can trigger you to make poor decisions in your life and make matters worse. You have to learn how to prepare for the worst but still hope for the best. You can become an optimist without being an extrovert.

‘It Will Be Okay,’ Lupita Pens A Moving Letter To His Dad, Anyang’ Nyong’o

It is rare for Lupita to talk about her family life.

But today she has opened up in a way no one ever expected her to.

“Today is the day my father gets sworn in as the Governor of Kisumu County in Kenya. I thank all those who voted for him and wish him the very best as he embarks on this new journey of socio-political representation,” Lupita posted on her social media platforms.

“To celebrate this day from afar, I reflect on the 10 Things My Daddy Told Me When I Was A Kid That Gave Me Confidence:
1. You are smart: I took this to mean both that I was dressed well (We Kenyans say “smart” for “well-dressed”), but also that I was intelligent. It always made me feel special and valuable.

2. It will be OK: He said this whenever I was sad with the little burdens of my childhood (a fight with my friends, a broken doll, a lost favorite piece of clothing). He also said this when I was concerned with the big burdens of his adulthood (detention without trial, house arrests, caught in tear gas during violent riots). Daddy said this to me as he held me close and I always felt a sense of comfort and security from him. I knew he would do all he could to make my life safe and that he was doing the same to make the country better for all of us.

Lupita and Anyang Nyongo

3. You can do anything: Daddy never EVER made me feel limited by my gender. He supported me when I did things that my society thought un-ladylike, like whistling, dressing like Kriss Kross, and even climbing trees in my adulthood. He was my first example of what feminism looks like on a man.

4. Do whatever you want to do; just do it to excellence: Dreaming out loud was something he encouraged. He loved listening to my adventurous and sometimes unrealistic and romantic ideas. He did that for all of his kids. Together with my mom, my father taught me to dare to imagine an ideal world and go about making it a reality.

Lupita and Anyang Nyongo

5. Knowledge is power: He ALWAYS reads and he is a walking example of how the power of an education never comes to an end. He has taught me that learning is the best way to stay young, beautiful and relevant. A free mind is stronger than a free body.

6. Show me: My Daddy loves to learn from his children. He is not afraid to admit what he does not know, and admitting I am ignorant of things has saved me from a lot of unnecessary embarrassment. Not knowing isn’t a crime. Refusing to learn is.

7. Consider the other side: there is always two sides to a coin. Being able to identify the other side of an argument makes yours stronger. It also makes you more empathetic.

Lupita and Anyang Nyongo

8. You must stand up for what you believe in: This is a fundamental lesson from my father. He lives by it. It is why he serves: To literally make the world a better place. I know I have to do the same. Good people need to do more to bring balance, because the bad people sure are busy these days!

9. Very Good! ‘A’ Minus: This was his way of saying that I did well, but also jokingly reminding me that there is always room for improvement. It’s about not congratulating yourself too much or berating yourself either.

Lupita and Anyang Nyongo

10. Daddy loves baby: He has said this to me all my life. A reminder that he loves me, yes, but also that I will always be his little girl. It is heartening to remember as life gets more and more adult, that we all start off with the innocence of a child and the pure love that comes with it.
Daddy, congratulations! Baby loves Daddy!

When she finally got another job, the husband changed again and was sorry for what he had told her earlier.

The lady is still living with the man and when asked by Maina Kageni if she still loves him, she hesitated and said she doesn’t though she can not just walk out.
