Maina and King’ang’i had an interesting conversation about mothers yesterday. The topic was influenced by the news that Gladys Shollei had been accused of kicking out ex-husband Sam Shollei’s 90-year-old mother from their up-country home.
This according to court documents. This elicited two questions from Maina to men; 1. What is the one line that a woman can’t cross that would kill the relationship? 2. Why do you find it so hard to cut the umbilical cord from your mother?
King’ang’i had his own thoughts saying, “Rule number one, a man’s mother is more important than even the cars and the money. A man’s mother comes number one.”
Some of the comments from listeners are below;
Maina should stop dreaming. Your mother is number 1. The other woman you are living with is a tamed snake. Hakuna mwanaume anawezafanyia mwanamke vile mwanamke anwaezafanyia mwanume. How can you chase a 90-year-old woman from her son’s home. Just lose a little money, these women leave you – A man.
Joke with my mother and you will know the colour code of a livewire – A man
I believe some people are confused by women. They are multipliers. If they don’t like women they should leave them alone – A man.
Maina drop this topic right now. We get it. That former caller amekaliwa chapati – A man
The guy who spoke last, he spoke well. Imagine if someone called his mother a snake? I value mothers because they give you blessings. Me and my mother-in-law we get along very well. It’s up to us as women to treat them the way we would like to be treated well. Treat them with respect and they will give you back. My husband respects me very much – A smart woman said.
