Meet Mary Wanjiku: Her husband abandoned her after she gave birth to triplets

Mary Wanjiku Nganga is a woman whom most will likely not know about. But the things she has gone through are painful to say the least.

Her story was first broadcast on Kameme FM and it is one of pain and suffering in the midst of blessings. What happened to her exactly?

A post on social media by Nancy Ndau Martin explained a lot about what was going on in Mary’s life. Mary’s nightmare began when she gave birth. Instead of the normal one child that many women give birth to, she was blessed with triplets.

This was close to 14 weeks ago. According to Mary, when her husband found out, he came to their home, cleaned it out of all belongings. All that he left were her clothes and those of their teenage son.

Not only did she lose her husband because of her hospital visit, her own father also died while she was in the maternity ward.

Mary is now struggling as she tries to feed her large brood. She is living in Kongo, in  Kahawa West. A good Samaritan called Rose Karanja and her husband touched by the story done on Kameme decided to go and visit her.

Their visit revealed some even more shocking facts. She was sleeping on a bed without a mattress. But another blessed soul decided to ride on a boda boda from Marurui to give her a mattress.

Not only that, another well-wisher was able to give her a phone. But this story would not be complete without a desperate plea for help for her.

Mary’s triplets consume a tin of Nan which costs 1300 shillings in two days! Diapers are another issue. If you want to help her, you can reach her on 0726296226.

We celebrate these female celebs who have given birth naturally

 

This year has had a wave of many female celebs giving birth. Janet Mbugua who is also pregnant has confessed that she would love the birth to be natural.

Janet Mbugua
A pregnant Janet Mbugua

Why a natural birth? There are some advantages:
Shorter hospital stay after a vaginal birth. (You are in the hospital for 24 to 48 hours after delivery).

You have a quicker recovery time with a vaginal birth, and you will have less postpartum pain.

Your baby is less likely to have certain respiratory problems

Also, natural labour triggers the release of the hormone epinephrine, which clears fluids from the lungs.

Infants born vaginally are also at decreased risk of persistent pulmonary hypertension.

Infants born vaginally are less likely to develop asthma, food allergies, and lactose intolerance later in life.

In future pregnancies, labour may be shorter and move along quicker.

Mothers who deliver vaginally are able to breastfeed immediately and more effectively.

After a vaginal birth, it may be easier to bond with your infant because you can have immediate contact with him or her.

You are at a decreased risk of maternal haemorrhage, blood clots, and damage to your internal organs.

Below are some of the female celebs who have given birth naturally:

Lilian Muli

The Citizen T.V presenter gave birth last month and a few days later she was out and about. If she had a CS, the recovery period would have taken considerably longer.

Lilian Muli pregnant

Kanze Dena

The first child the State House deputy spoke-person had was delivered naturally at Pumwani Hospital. Sadly her daughter died barely a year after being born.

Pierra Makena

Fellas take note: Citizen TV’s Joey Muthengi has a thing for older men

 

Citizen Tv presenter Joey Muthegi is not feeling young men.

Speaking during yesterday’s topic on the issue of older men dating younger women on the station’s morning show, Joey revealed that she prefers older men because they know what they want in life compared to young ones.

Joey Muthengi, who co-hosts the show with Willis Raburu and Roy Karuhize, explained the main reason why young women prefer older men than their agemates. She said:

AS A CONSUMER OF OLDER MEN THERE IS JUST LIKE STABILITY IN THAT, OR REASSURANCE THAT THEY KNOW WHAT THEY NEED OUT OF LIFE, HAVE LEARNT THE LESSONS THAT NEEDED TO BE LEARNT. THEY ARE EVEN ABLE TO SHARE THEIR KNOWLEDGE. THESE YOUNG GUYS ARE ONLY GOOD IN PICTURES.

The sister to born-again gospel singer Holy Dave went ahead to tell what many young men out here wouldn’t want to hear. She said she would go for an older man because he’s already established himself. She said

I AM LOOKING FOR SECURITY FINANCIALLY, MATURITY, THESE ARE THINGS I NEED IN A RELATIONSHIP. LIKE I SAID OFF CAMERA I SPENT A LOT OF MY YOUTH WITH THE YOUTHS WHILE IN CAMPUS. WHAT DID THEY DO FOR ME?

Joey Muthegi also revealed that she was not for the parable of hustling together and building an empire.

ATI WE ARE HUSTLING TOGETHER WE CAN’T BOTH BE ON THE SAME LEVEL. SOMEONE NEEDS TO HAVE MADE IT. IN FACT, MOST OF THE GUYS WHOM YOU BUILD EACH OTHER FROM SCRATCH USUALLY END UP LEAVING THE WOMAN FOR SOMEONE ELSE. THAT IS WHAT MOSTLY HAPPENS IN THOSE TYPES OF SITUATIONS.

As the nation continues to mourn 400m hurdles champion Nicholas Bett, there’s drama going on in his family.

A woman claiming to be the champion’s  wife has revealed that she has been blocked by her partner’s family from burying him.

Brenda narrated how they were in love, and on the fateful day of the accident, she was meant to drive Nicholas upcountry, where he had an appointment with his doctor but their daughter fell sick and she had no option but let her husband drive himself though he had an injury.

In an emotional tribute to her husband, Brenda wrote:

I have lost a golden heart. I celebrate you, my sweetheart. You always loved us. You loved me like your own sister.

I thank God for the moments we shared. I will treasure them forever. What can I say now baba kokoo? The man who taught me to be humble ti see things and zip up.
I have lost you in a cruel way that if I knew you were going to die I would have sipped the journey.

I feel now that that was the last hug and kiss the last ‘I love you and take care of baby Kylie’. The way you talked to me at night was soo deep that I can now say those were your final words to me.’ Cheruto, mama Kylie I love you from my heart and one day you will attest this’ and I smiled and told you, babe, stop it. You don’t have to tell me the world knows and I know you love me so much and I love you too very much.

If I continue writing this, I will write forever. I have known you to be the person of dignity, the man who never gave up. You believed in your dreams, you loved your family more than anything. I’ll always remember your words every morning that babe I have told you I’m your dad not only your husband and I feel very safe in your hands.

Words can never describe your kindness, Those who were close to you know the kind of a person you were.

You always said ‘Kylie my heart, I promise to take care of her’. This is the gift that I couldn’t ask for. I promise you over there Kylie will be taken care of by her strong mum. You always said you trust me, God saw it best not to take both of us because of Kylie I would have been your driver but I don’t know what happened to me I withdrew the journey the last minute. After Kylie fell sick and I had to stay behind to watch her so that I take her to the hospital later in the day. Babes shine on your way. Forever in my heart. I love you so much pakokoo.

RIP my hero”.

It was the second time in 10 days that a viral video prompted public fury, compelling police to act on escalating domestic violence. Valerie Masibo told the Star in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

 

He works at the slaughter house and since we met he has been so brutal. This time, I thought he would slaughter me.

She suffered serious facial injuries; one of her nearly severed ears was reattached at Moi Referral Hospital.

The victim had been rescued by police from a house at Kipkaren Estate where she had been locked up by the suspect, identified at Nafatali Lusuli.

In the latest of many similar cases, Valerie Masibo was battered. She is four months’ pregnant; she has not lost the baby. Valerie was discharged and is recovering at her aunt’s house in Eldoret. She will remain under medical care.

The suspect was arrested in the house and is being held at the Yamumbi police station. He is expected to be charged today. Eldoret South OCPD Wilson Abduba said.

We have the suspect in custody and he will be taken to court to face charges in relation to the crime.

Valerie and Lusuli have been married for five months. Valerie said

This is about the fifth time the man has attacked me viciously but this time it was so serious I could not even see after the beating. I felt like I was dying, but I thank God I am alive and free from his brutality.

She said the man, whom she started dating in March, arrived home last Friday at 6 pm and was very drunk. He accused Valerie of misusing the Sh500 he had given her for rent. Valerie said

I still had the money and as I tried to show it to him he pushed me to the ground and started using his shoe and a cooking stick to beat me.

The men then used a sharp object to cut off part of her ear, causing her to bleed profusely.

She screamed for help but the man locked the door from inside. The neighbours alerted police who arrived at the house but the man had escaped. He was arrested in the same estate.

She was taken to the police station to identify her attacker. “When he saw me, he could not believe that he was one who inflicted such injuries. He pleaded with me to forgive him but with the suffering I have gone through, I want the law to take its course”, she said.

She said she would never return to her batterer and said she hoped that other women going through the same suffering receive help.

Wafula said on checking the body it had deep cuts in the chest, neck and head an indication she could have bled to death.

Gilgil OCPD Emmanuel Opuru confirmed the incident saying the suspect fled from the scene immediately after killing his wife.

Opuru said they had launched a manhunt for him so as to face charges of murder adding that the body was lying at the local mortuary awaiting postmortem.

Meanwhile police in Naivasha are looking for five thugs who gang raped a 21 year old woman leaving her for the dead.

The victim is said to have been accosted by the thugs on her way home near Kabati estate and abused her sexually before fleeing in the cover of darkness.

According to a gender based violence activist Sekina Mohammed, the young girl had left her job as is normal before the thugs waylaid her.

“She was later found lying helpless by passersby and was taken to Naivasha sub-county hospital where she is responding well to treatment though she is traumatized,” she said.

A senior police officer who declined to be named confirmed the incident saying a manhunt is on for the suspects.

Police in Makueni county are looking for a pastor alleged to have raped a 25-year-old woman who had sought a prayer intervention at his house.

Police, in a report on the Wednesday 10pm incident, said the pastor, who is still at large, was reported to have committed the act at Katune village.

Tedd Josiah: ‘I used to earn 10k and stayed in a house of 12k rent’

Local audio producer Tedd Josiah is slowly adapting to life after losing his wife Regina in September last year. The two were blessed with an adorable daughter named Jay, who turned a year old last month.

In an interview with the Play House YouTube Channel, Tedd talked about his journey in the music industry. He said;

I fell in love with music when I was very young. My dad bought me a record player so I got to listen to music a lot. I spent a lot of time creating and listening to music. That’s where my passion started.

The producer grew up in Chicago, US, after having stayed with his grandmother in Nakuru during his early childhood. Tedd Josiah said.

When I moved to the United States, I just knew Kikuyu, Luo and broken Kiswahili. I knew no English, but with time I picked up.

He later joined high school back in Kenya, where he studied at two different institutions but never participated in music festivals.

After high school, I became a born-again Christian. One day, I went to Nairobi Baptist and saw what the youths were doing, in terms of singing, and I told myself, ‘Hmm, I can do this’

Tedd went ahead to master the art of producing music.

I started doing background vocals more and lead vocals. Then I realised that they were making mistakes in the arrangement, and in the digital space there are different things happening, and we start putting the music together like this and do this with the intro and stuff. And I didn’t know that what was happening was that I was becoming a producer,’ he said.

I was just arranging stuff and telling people no don’t do this here, wait until this particular point and do that. And people would go into the studio and say ‘we need Tedd the technician to come in and help’, though I didn’t know what I was doing. I was just moving faders up and down for things to balance.

The father of one mixed his first album when he was 18-years-old, and after years of hard work, he became the most-sought-after producer in East Africa in his heyday. He started working with a local company in 1995, and he says he made a mistake of overspending.

My salary was 10k and house rent was 12k, and I still needed to top up this salary for rent. I then decided to talk to my employer and told them, ‘You’re paying me very little. I want 40 percent of everything I bring in.’ They agreed and we signed a contract.

The award-winning audio producer worked hard to make more money. Tedd Josiah narrated how he met with a Coca-Cola MD, a French man by then.

First thing I did, I recorded a track and walked to Coca-Cola offices and asked to meet the MD. We had a meeting and at the end of the day, I made 40k. I did all the Coke brands and that’s how people started looking for me for adverts and radio shows.
