Anerlisa Muigai is an interesting study in the highs and lows that a well-heeled socialite goes through in her day-to-day life.
While most people would exchange their lives for hers in a heartbeat, what some wouldn’t count on is that her life is often full of disappointments-particularly in her relationships.
Not only has she dated some of the most handsome men on social media; from Ian Mugoya, Ben Kang’ang’i, to Don and now ex-husband Ben Pol.
2020 was an eventful year for Anerlisa, full of contrasts. Not only did she lose her younger sister Tecra in unfortunate circumstances, but she also got married to Tanzanian musician Ben pol soon afterward.
The marriage came as a shock, considering that she had lost her sister barely a month before. And from the word go the marriage was littered with rumours of infidelity and not seeing eye to eye by the two partners.
Not only that, the relationship looked like a long-distance marriage to keen observers making many wonder when (if ever) the two actually spent any time together.
And while the couple put a brave front in December with even Ben Pol releasing a love song with Anerlisa as his video vixen, that still wasn’t enough to save the marriage.
Early last month Ben filed for divorce in Tanzania with Miss Muigai hinting that she had acceded to his request later on in the month.
Now that she is a free woman, she has been making comments on her social media that hint at what might have been the cause of the demise of the relationship.
This week, the Nero Water CEO said that she is planning to become more selfish as a person. “The woman I am looking into becoming is a woman selfish with HERSELF, her FINANCES and her TIME.”
And that brings me to the gist of this article. I don’t think Anerlisa’s issue with men has been her giving nature. In fact, I think that is a positive in most genuine, reciprocal relationships.
Many times when you keep on having the same problem as Miss Muigai seems to have in her relationships with her revolving cast of men, one has to ask oneself the question? Who is the common denominator? Herself.
When I began this article I thought that I could wrap it up in a cute little bow but I now realise that her issues are too many to highlight of the top of my head.
I think her issues would best be dealt with by a trained therapist, but what do I know…
