‘I do not know which baby daddy to post,’ Akothee cries on father’s day

As the world celebrates Father’s Day Kenyan artiste Akothee is confused about which of her baby daddies will she celebrate on this big day.

Akothee who is a mother of five feels it is not possible to post one baby daddy without rubbing the others the wrong way.

Unlike Akothee, some celebs were sure of how to celebrate their men and here is what gospel artiste Evelyn Wanjiru penned to her hubby.

A father is that rare identity that a man shares with his Creator. To be called one is to be invited into God’s apprenticeship. @agundabweni Happy father’s day love … you are an amazing #daddy #happayfathersday

Kate actress also took the chance to celebrate her husband Phil for the good job he is doing raising their son.

She wrote,

A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child ! Happy Fathers day to the most amazing dad , Leon is one of the luckiest child to have you in his life, thank you for showing him what it means to be a real man, you are loved ,adored ,and appreciated, HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO YOU LOVE @phil_director

‘Doctor thought I was self aborting,’ Nairobi woman tells of contraceptives horror

University student Rachael, 22, dreads the thought of periods because of the pain and discomfort she has to endure month in month out.

So bad is it, doctors once mistook her cramps for abortion.

“On one occasion, I was in unbearable pain.

When my parents took me to hospital, the doctors insisted on running a test to see if maybe I was aborting or in labour,” the soft-spoken girl tells the Star.

‘Here is why your wife looks older than your mother,’ Akothee reveals

She adds

I once got a panic attack at home because of my period, and I had to be rushed to hospital.

Another time, I was in school and my period started when we were lined up for parade.

Racheal adds that at some point she got panic attacks

It got really painful and I had to be taken to class by a first aider.

When the pain got worse, I got a panic attack and had to be rushed to Nairobi Women’s Hospital, before my parents came for me.

Foods and beverages to avoid when pregnant

The University of Nairobi student says she once started throwing up and having diarrhoea as she came from class at a local college.

I was going home from Zetech and my periods started. I alighted the matatu I was in and went to a nearby hotel because I was feeling ill. 

The hotel manager took me to a chemist and called my mother and auntie to come pick me up.

She has resorted to walking around with Ponstan drugs when she knows her periods are about to start.

Contraception can sometimes delay your flow. It can cause an abnormal flow or one may start spotting over a long period of time

Diana Marua and her husband Bahati have once again aired their dirty linen in public after Diana’s family came to demand for dowry.

Diana and Bahati are expecting their second child and her family is furious.

Where is Bahati? Are you hiding him? We have come all the way from Kisumu and we came to see him.

This is your second child and Bahati promised to come pay dowry and he did not.

We want dowry. Don’t combine efforts with your man so that he does not pay dowry.

This is my house and you are being disrespectful. If there is a problem let us sit down and talk about it.

How do you know that Bahati has no paid my dowry?

What elders have sent you?

Bahati was nowhere to be seen as the ugly scene unfolded and it is obvious that Diana was agitated.

Bahati’s brother came to Diana’s rescue by telling her family to keep off given that everything had been sorted with the elders.

We finished the dowry process with the elders if there is anything remaining let the elders come themselves.

‘If you can afford Jameson then pay dowry,’ shouts Mwalimu Kingangi

Mwalimu Kingangi has revealed why he does not look forward to dowry traditions in Kenya being overlooked.

He says that the move will help erode this treasured culture.

The admission came after Maina Kageni confessed that a friend of his was recently asked for Ksh 1 million as dowry.

According to Maina, this is absurd but according to Mwalimu 1 million is OK.

The same way he gets money for Jameson is the same way he should look for dowry.

Ruracio is the Court of Appeal when it comes to marriage.

The problem with young people is that they want shorts cuts but they do not understand that shortcuts do not work.

‘I pity you for being a bachelor’ Mwalimu King’ang’i tells Maina Kageni

Mwalimu adds that its time people respected efforts put by parents on their kids.

You need to realize that this woman has been brought up by a village. Harambees have been held to educate her to become the doctor she is.

Mwalimu Kingangi adds,

You think that by giving her a space at Whisky River that is enough to make her your wife?

Marriage is not a joke so go out there and look for dowry.

Men how much would you pay as dowry for your woman?

‘I am being asked for Ksh 4.9 million dowry,’ cries shocked Kenyan man

A Kenyan man left Maina Kageni flabbergasted after he confessed what he and his friends were asked as part of the dowry.

According to the man, the family of the girl asked for cash over the fact that the girl suckled her mother’s breasts dry during childhood.

Exclusive: Maina Kageni finally reveals why he is not getting married

He says,

We went for a dowry ceremony among the Duruma.

We were asked to give cash to them for helping seducing our woman .

Maina you have to pay this ‘fee’ in cash.

We gave all the cash we had, we even had to ask for cash through Mpesa.

By the end of it all we had given Ksh 1.5 million.

She never showed up on our wedding day only to resurface carrying another man’s baby

The caller adds,

We were also asked for cash to compensate the fact that the woman we wanted had left her mums’ breast dry.

According to the elders lazima tungelipia.

Another fan adds,

My wife is South African and I have been asked for 700,000 South African Rand which is Ksh 4.9 million.

We have a kid and I love her so I have no option here.

The money is a lot given that elders from her home are still asking for more stuff.

Her whole family is here but they want me to take the dowry to South Africa.

Why do they take advantage of us men?

‘Here is why your wife looks older than your mother,’ Akothee reveals

In an era where filters are the in thing, Akothee has advised Kenya men to learn to appreciate their women with all their flaws.

This is because most of the things we see on Instagram are not real. Most people are living by the mantra ‘fake it till you make it’.

Akothee advises,

  1. Never compare your wife with ladies you see on social media, she is the mother of your child! treat her stretchmarks as a beautiful natural tattoo💪, this is a special sacrifice she made, for you to be called a daddy.
  2.  Your wife’s priority is not to glam up on social media, but to make sure every member of the family is secure.
  3. Your wife looks older than the ladies on social media simply because she is living reality and growing grey hair from thinking of what next with your family including the lubbish you 🤔.

‘Women should wear a weave for 1 week, mine is worth 76k’ Akothee brags

4. The money you spend on ladies you meet out there, would have been good money for a family retreat and see your children jump on a bouncing castle 🤔
5. Having excuses of not being home every weekend hurts and cuts deep into a woman’s heart. If wishes were horses, weekends should be cut off your routine🤔

‘I blundered big time’ MCA Tricky on wanting to date Akothee’s daughter

Is Akothee suffering from burn out

6. You never have money for your family, but you got money to spoil your friends 🤔 your wife looks older than your mother, simply because she is carrying pain 🤔
7. Don’t complain that she gained weight, she is broken from inside and has no time to take care of herself💔 she is busy taking care of you and the family 🤝
8. You wonder why she is unhappy 🤔 you never appreciate her or her beauty never surprised her even with a flower 🤔
Women are strong, but they incubate a lot
Take care of your wife and children
All these people you are entertaining will come to your burial on the burial date, and take photos with your coffin🤔

How to get and keep your dream man in 4 easy steps

Many times the dating landscape is littered with dating advice for women that ultimately leads to one destination: How do I get and keep my dream man?

I have the answers for you but you might not like them. Why? The advice in this article is not politically correct, it involves hard work that inevitably works.

Let’s begin

Intimacy (I can’t mention adult words in this article because Daddy Google will punish the site) so when you see me using the word (intimacy, intimate), please replace it with a word that starts with S and ends with X.

Let’s get this out of the way-Intimacy will get you in the door with a high-value man (your dream man) but it will not keep his attention. Every other woman he meets on the streets can offer him that.

What distinguishes you from all these other women? What value addition can you provide in his life apart from intimacy?

Your Value addition

1. Submit

How dare I mention that dirty word? I have and it is probably the most powerful tool a woman has in her arsenal of getting a man to not only commit but stay for the long haul.

Submission gets a bad rep because of the connotations that the woman has no say in the relationship. In fact, the more a woman submits the more her desires are met! Try it if you don’t believe me!

2. Cook and clean

Shock! Yes, I said it. We are in a day and age when feminism has convinced women that doing anything for the man that they are with is tantamount to abuse.

You want to keep that man who is also in demand with other women, start cooking and start cleaning. And if you don’t know, either learn or hire!

3. Don’t nag

I understand that women have emotions, mood swings, and hormones. This can affect how she behaves around her man with her behaviour changing. That is allowed to happen.

But when it becomes the norm rather than the exception then you (the woman) become a nightmare for the man. Let your company as a woman be pleasant, otherwise, your man will soon find other company; either that of other females, a bottle or…

4. Keep the intimacy coming

When women get comfortable that they have secured the commitment of the man that they desire, they get bored and the intimacy dwindles, making intimacy an obligation rather than something she enjoys.

That should not happen in your relationship. If you are not intimate with him he will go elsewhere.

What rationale does a man have to leave you if you are following all of the above? None. But if he does, aren’t all men trash anyway?

A few minutes into the conversation I just saw him hitting Gedi on the cheek, she was crying and bleeding. I didn’t know what could lead to that. I was surprised that a colleague can assault a female member,” Wanga said.

Gedi was rushed to Karen Hospital where first aid was administered before recording statement at Parliament Police Station under OB 20/13/6/2019.
Contacted Amin did not deny or confirm the assault allegations only saying he will respond to the Police.

Chipukeezy speaks marijuana and the quality he loves most in a woman

Chipukeezy is a renowned comedian and drug activist. He works as a board member at NACADA. He and a few other celebs recently pledged to pay the fees for a 15-year-old girl. The girl had the misfortune of being the subject of a viral video showing her in a drunken state.

We called the comic and asked him some questions regarding his work at the government agency. He was very forthcoming and revealed the frustrations that he has undergone fighting the vice that is drug and alcohol abuse among the youth.

He said the biggest issue he has seen personally with the drugs menace was that there was a lack of proper education for the youth to make informed decisions.

He said that there had been a failure for responsible parties(be it the government, parents or teachers) to properly expound and educate the youth when it came to this menace.

The popular T.V host also said that he believed that the country was not ready to legalize marijuana. He said that in maybe 20 years a president would come along who might legalise marijuana but that at the moment the country was not able to make an informed choice about the drug.

Chipukeezy said that his solution for tackling the drugs menace was proper, exhaustive and deliberate education of the masses starting from the grassroots.

Doctors reveal Ebola outbreak in Uganda

A five-year-old has died of Ebola in Uganda in the first spread of a deadly outbreak in neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.

Health officials said the boy passed away last night after testing positive for the killer virus in Uganda, which has been on high alert for 10 months.

The boy was from the DRC, and had reportedly travelled across the border with his mother and other family members to see his father.

More than 2,000 cases of Ebola have been recorded in the north-eastern part of the DRC since the outbreak began last August.

Official figures show the death toll in the African nation now stands at 1,396, with half of the fatalities having occurred since April.

Confirmation of cross-border contamination is a blow to local officials who have desperately tried to stop the spread of Ebola.

University lecturer left paralyzed after a mosquito bite


‘The boy who tested positive for Ebola in Kasese yesterday passed on last night in the isolation unit,’ an official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

‘The minister for health (Ruth Aceng) will be briefing the country about the death of the boy and arrangements to bury the body.’

The official said the child, who traveled to Uganda from the DRC on Monday, was likely to be buried later today.

The child and his family entered the country through Bwera border post and sought medical care at a hospital in Kagando.

Uganda’s health ministry and the WHO have sent a rapid response team to the western town of Kasese to trace likely cases.

The WHO said that aid workers will vaccinate those who may have come into contact with the boy.

The unidentified child was receiving supportive treatment at Bwera ETU, an Ebola treatment unit.

Two of his family members were being tested for Ebola after developing symptoms, with results expected later today.

Congo’s health ministry in a separate statement said the boy, from Mabalako, arrived on Monday at Congo’s Kasindi border post.

There, a dozen family members appeared to have symptoms and were transferred to an isolation center at the local hospital for observation.

Six family members then broke away while being transferred to an Ebola treatment center in Beni and crossed into Uganda.

Ugandan officials found the family members at the Kagando hospital, where the boy’s Ebola case was confirmed.

Officials from the two countries will meet today about the possibility of sending the family back to Beni in Congo for treatment, the health ministry said.

It is not clear how the family members were able to cross the border, where millions have travelers have been screened for Ebola since the outbreak began.

Ugandan health teams ‘are not panicking,’ Henry Mwebesa, a physician and the national director of health services, told The Associated Press.

He cited the country’s experience battling previous outbreaks of Ebola and other hemorrhagic fevers.

‘We have all the contingencies to contain this case,’ Mr Mwebesa said. ‘It is not going to go beyond’ the patient’s family.

The family likely did not pass through official border points, where all travelers are screened for a high temperature and isolated if they show signs of illness.

The child’s mother, who is married to a Ugandan, ‘knows where to pass. She does not have to go through the official border points,’ Mr Mwebesa said.

Dr Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, said: ‘News of an Ebola case confirmed in Uganda is tragic but unfortunately not surprising.

‘Uganda is very well prepared, has established surveillance and given the Merck vaccine to health care workers, but we can expect and should plan for more cases in DRC and neighbouring countries.

‘This epidemic is in a truly frightening phase and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. There are now more deaths than any other Ebola outbreak in history, bar the West Africa Epidemic of 2013-16, and there can be no doubt that the situation could escalate towards those terrible levels.’

In April, an expert committee of the WHO decided that DR Congo’s outbreak, while of ‘deep concern’, was not yet a global health emergency.

International spread of a disease is one of the major criteria WHO considers before declaring a situation to be a global health emergency.

Uganda has had multiple outbreaks of Ebola – considered one of the most lethal pathogens in existence – since 2000.

The outbreak in the DRC only appears to be getting worse – week-by-week infection rates are far higher than at any time before March.

Attacks from armed rebels – some believed to be linked to Islamic State – are slowing down the response and risking the lives of locals and aid workers.

Armed militiamen reportedly believe Ebola is a conspiracy against them and have repeatedly attacked health workers battling the epidemic.

There have been more than 120 attacks this year against aid workers, with eighty-five being wounded or killed, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Ebola killed 11,000 people and ravaged West Africa during an epidemic between 2014-15. One case was detected in Spain, Italy and the UK, respectively.

The DRC declared its tenth ever outbreak of Ebola last August in northeastern North Kivu province.

The killer virus, which causes fevers, uncontrollable bleeding and organ failure, quickly spread into the neighboring Ituri region.
