The moving story of a wife who has been waiting 22 years for her husband to return from abroad elicited mixed reaction.
While men praised her for being an exemplary wife, female listeners told her that the only man she should wait to return is Jesus Christ, and that men are not like tea we should wait for until it boils.
@MJUKUUwaMATUNDA wrote of her disgust
that lady is Lying, Aseme tu Amechoka Na Relationship , anangojea Yesu Sio Mtu Aaaii! 22yrs Unangoja Tu, for Sure Me I can’t, Alafu who told her Jamaa Wake Hana Mtu Uko!?
Maina spoke about this asking women what they are going through.
‘So we need to discuss this lady who called in yesterday Monday December 7th, and tell me if it’s not absolute madness. She revealed she has been waiting 22 years and is hopeful one day he will come, back for her. Nie ma uuwwiii,’
Co host Mwalimu Kikingangi praised the wife saying ‘Ni kumtegema bwana. Why is it that when people do the right thing it is madness to you?’
Maina defended his opinion saying ‘the bugger only came back when his mother died. Does this woman still have a husband? Maina wondered opening up discussion to the audience.
A woman called in saying
‘huyo lady ako ingle na hajui kama 22 years ni kama mzae alianza familia ingine, sielewi, atarudi atapatana na heartbreak ingine, juu huyo mzee akirudi ata introduce familia yakke ingine, pole kwake.’
Another woman said just as much
‘it’s mere nonsense. I had such an experience, my guy went to UK for 6 years so he came back na mzungu after waiting for 6 good years for him. And then the mother in law anadanganya the plane imechelewa, but the cousins told me that alikuja na mzungu na mamake alikuwa ana jua and that they had to hide me. The mzungu called me and told me to keep off, i cried for to months’
