I am told she was back at work yesterday and will essentially hold her old responsibilities minus going on air.
So in essence she is a news Editor who will compile and arrange stories that will run on air,” our source disclosed.

Kenyans you did not know were related to President Uhuru Kenyatta

kackie maribe

Jacque not being on air, is one of the conditions given when she was released on bail by Justice James Wakiaga. She is also not to conduct interviews on matters related to the case.

Last month, she was allowed to access her house to pick the things she needs, but her car and iPhone are still being held as investigations are ongoing.

She had been arrested with her fiancé Jowie in connection to the murder of Monicah Kimani at her home in Kilimani.

Jowie is still in remand in Kamiti Prison.

It’s baby number two for Citizen TV’s Lulu Hassan

It’s been a roller coaster of emotions for Lulu Hassan and Kanze Dena.

Kanze Dena left Citizen TV officially yesterday (Sunday 10th) and her pals surprised her with with a cake. She couldn’t hold her tears back, and cried hysterically.

But it’s not all tears of sadness, as Lulu seems o have been hiding some good news all this time.

She gave an emotional speech that paid glowing tribute to Lulu her co-host of 15 years.

Lulu Hassan and Kanze Dena

Kanze Dena was appointed the deputy head of the President’s Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) as well as deputy State House spokesperson.

Talk about major moves 2018!

Mercy Masika serenaded Kanze during the farewell, as she also took pictures.

 

At the background of the picture was a heavily pregnant Lulu Hassan. In their weekend show, Lulu has been sitting in a weird way and if you have noticed they have been not been standing.

Lulu and Kanze always started the show while standing at a cocktail like table. That was the first sign. When they have the kanganga talk on the floor alongside Bi Mswafari, you could tell she was not comfortable.

Babies are a blessing. Lulu Hassan joins her fellow TV Girls such as Lillian Muli who is her colleague at Citizen, Smriti Vidyarthi of NTV and Janet Mbugua who quit Citizen TV. It is a season of babies!

Now that the secret is out, we wish her and her husband, Rashid Abdalla all the very best as they have their second child as a couple.

If you don’t believe me, see the picture below:

 

Screenshots of the conversation between Tony Timase and the college babe that has gone viral

Media personality Tony Timase is the talk of the town.

Tony Timase

He’s been accused of “date rape” by a college student and according to the screenshots Mpasho has seen, Tony Timase and the lass know each other well but when called for a comment, he denied knowing the lady.

Tony and the woman had a conversation a day later and he admitted to having been with her. In the conversation, the lady asks:

“JANA WHO TOOK ME HOME. AND DID WE DO ANYTHING ODD? HAHA.”

The veteran journalist responds:

“SWEETS SI YOU TOOK A CAB. SINA GARI SAA HII. WHEN IT’S FIXED I WILL BE DROPPING YOU ALWAYS. I ACTUALLY WANTED TO KEEP YOU TILL MORNING.”

The accuser’s boyfriend blew the lid off the whole issue, and in his chats with Timase, he confronted him for allegedly date-raping his girlfriend.

“STOP TRYING TO DENY. YOU HAVE ADMITTED YOU WERE WITH HER YESTERDAY.” READ HIS MESSAGE TO TIMASE.

Timase replied:

“I WAS NOT WITH YOUR WIFE OR ANY OTHER DAY. I DON’T KNOW WHO JENNY IS, AND WHEN I WAS IN THE GAME, NEVER DID I ASK FOR HELP TO HIT ON A CHICK. I ALWAYS DID IT MYSELF.”

The boyfriend said:

“YOU KNOW MAN I USED TO RESPECT YOU SANA UKIWA KWA TV BUT THIS IS HOW YOU ARE? TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OTHERS JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE POPULAR? I’M SURE YOU WOULDN’T LET IT SLIDE IF I SLEPT WITH YOUR WOMAN, THAT’S IF YOU HAVE ONE. AND SO YOU HAD TO DRUG HER TOO TO SLEEP WITH HER OR WHAT? BECAUSE SHE WAS PRETTY MUCH DRUGGED WHEN SHE CAME HOME.”

Kawangware man professes his love for Citizen TV’s Anne Kiguta in romantic letter

Citizen TV senior political reporter Anne Kiguta is a beautiful woman and no man can ignore her beauty.

Anne Kiguta

The mother of three, who likes to keep her private life away from the limelight, has won the heart of a Kawangware-based man identified as Timo Sem on Facebook.

The potential suitor has penned down a letter to Kiguta asking her to accept his proposal and they will be happily married. He even confesses that he will take her with her children and she should be ready to give birth to more.

“Dear Anne Kiguta.

My name is Timo Semi, one of your biggest fans in Kenya, I’m also your secret admirer. I saw what your ex-husband did to you, he kicked you out of his house. Am ready to take you as my wife and we can bring up your little girl together as a family…I’m six feet tall and I live in Kawangware. Money is not a problem, we shall hustle together. I own a laptop. We can have five kids together. I will be waiting for your reply Yours faithfully,” read his message.

Check out the screenshot

 

Do you think the self-proclaimed queen of politics will dance to this suitor’s tune?

Anne Kiguta

Rumour has it that Anne has parted ways with the father of her twins after she deleted the Fathers day message she wrote to him.

Citizen TV anchor Kanze Dena also saw a secret admirer (banana seller) write her a letter asking for her hand in marriage.

“BELOVED SWEETHEART KANZE, I HOPE YOU ARE LOVELY AS ALWAYS. NO AMOUNT OF WRITTEN OR SPOKEN WORDS CAN SATISFACTORILY EXPRESS MY DEEP, SINCEREST, AND EVERLASTING LOVE FOR YOU—ONLY THE INAUDIBLE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART.

 

MY LOVE FOR YOU BEATS THE LOGICS OF ELOQUENCE. THEY SAY A PICTURE SPEAKS 1000 WORDS, BUT WHEN I LOOK AT YOURS, I ONLY SEE THREE POWERFUL WORDS, “I LOVE YOU”. KANZE, IF I AM ASKED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BREATHING AND LOVING YOU, I WOULD EXPEND MY LAST BREATH TO SAY “I LOVE YOU”

 

MY QUEEN, IF I DIED AND GOD ASKED ME WHAT I’D LIKE TO COME BACK AS, I’D SAY A TEAR; SO I CAN BE BORN IN YOUR SHIMMERING EYES, ROLL DOWN YOUR BEWITCHING CHEEK, AND DIE ON YOUR POUTY LIPS. EVERY TIME I SEE YOU ON TV, MY EYES SUDDENLY TURN WEAK AS MY BODY GOES LACKADAISICAL.

 

ALWAYS ASK GOD, “DEAR LORD, OF ALL THE 6B PLUS CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, WHY DID YOU CREATE A SINGLE WINGLESS ANGEL IN KANZE” BABE, I AM CONVINCED THAT PERADVENTURE; GOD WAS SHOWING OFF WHEN HE CREATED YOU. BUT TELL ME SWEETHEART, DID IT HURT WHEN GOD PLUCKED YOUR WINGS BEFORE SENDING YOU DOWN ON EARTH?

 

BELOVED KANZE, WHILE STILL IN BED, MY THOUGHTS GO OUT TO YOU, MY IMMORTAL, AND MY BELOVED. EVERY NIGHT I DREAM OF YOU, I WAKE UP THE FOLLOWING MORNING WITH GREAT BLISS, FREEDOM OF MIND, AND JOY IN MY HEART. MY MIND IS ALWAYS ENGROSSED IN MEDITATIONS, THINKING PAINSTAKINGLY ABOUT MY IMAGINARY EXQUISITE DARLING KANZE. WHAT A CONFUSED BLOKE DROWNING IN LOVE.

 

MY LONG LOST SWEETHEART, FROM THE LOOK OF YOUR SHAPELY FACE, YOUR SEDUCTIVE EYES TELLS ME A SECRET STORY. THE STORY OF HOW HAPPINESS IS NOT WITHIN YOU. MUM, YOUR GLISTENING EYES TELL A STORY THAT MAKES ME EQUALLY GUILTY BY SPONSORING YOUR LONELINESS WITH MY ABSENCE. YOUR INVITINGLY KISSABLE LIPS RENDER ME HELPLESS.

 

SWEETIE, ASIDE FROM YOUR CURVACEOUS SELF, YOUR LUSTROUS INKLIKE HAIR POLISHES MY LIVING ROOM EVERY WEEKEND. YOUR VELVETY SKIN NOT ONLY MANUFACTURES HOPE IN MY LIFE, IT ALSO MAINTAINS IT HENCE GIVING ME ENOUGH REASON TO WAKE UP TO ANOTHER DAY. MY ANGEL KANZE, I KNOW YOU ARE HIDING YOUR WINGS SOMEWHERE. PLEASE UNLOCK THE CHAINS FROM YOUR HEART AND LET YOURSELF GROW LIKE THE SWEET FLOWER YOU ARE. YES! PLEASE SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND SET YOURSELF FREE FOR ME.

 

BABY YOUR ELOQUENCE ON TV MAKES ME WANT MORE. I BEG TO KNOW EXPRESSLY THE CHARM TOUCHING MY LOVE FOR YOU. CUTIE, NECESSITY COMPELS ME TO FIND OUT THE ANSWER, HAVING BEEN MORE THAN A DECADE WOUNDED BY THE DARTS OF YOUR LOVE, BUT NOT YET SURE IF I’LL FAIL OR FIND WARMTH WITHIN IN YOUR HEART. KANZE DARLING, MY BLIND EYES ARE DESPERATELY WAITING TO SIGHT YOU.

MY GUSII PEOPLE SAY THAT “A WATCHED POT NEVER BOILS,” BUT, I AM READY TO WAIT FOR YOU. THEY ALSO SAY THAT “CHARACTER IS LIKE PREGNANCY, YOU CANNOT HIDE IT,” BUT, I HAVE APPROVED OF YOURS.

BABE, I HAVE REALIZED HOW FASCINATINGLY ELEGANT YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN, AND HOW PECULIARLY YOU HAVE ACQUIRED AN ADDED AND SPECIAL AND DANGEROUSLY LOVELINESS.

The absolutely cute plan Willis Raburu and his wife have after their first wedding anniversary

Multi-talented media personality Willis Raburu and his wife Mary Prude celebrated their first marriage anniversary over the weekend.

Willis and Mary Raburu

The young lovebirds, who tied the knot in a private invites only wedding ceremony last year, are doing great and they spent their weekend at one of the top five star hotels Park Inn by Radisson.

 

Raburu and his wife spent Friday and Saturday nights at the prestigious hotel , where the price for two adults for two nights is Ksh.64,192. But wait, did they sleep in a standard double room or superior room double bed?

“The King and Queen of RabuKanda😂😂😂 So over the weekend my wife @maryaprude_raburu and I sampled @parkinn_nrbwestlands we had heard such a buzz about it so we thought “why not! ” Wow, It’s is the perfect spot!!! Immediately you get in you are sent into another world. The hospitality is amazing. The rooms have amazing beds ( very comfortable) and the light feature is my favorite,” wrote Raburu accompanied by the pics below.

Willis Raburu

 

Last year Raburu revealed that he and his wife were planning to have 12 children and he has confirmed to Mpasho.co.ke that there plans are still on.

“There is so much going on right now . We are working hard so that by the time they show up ( and they will ) they have the perfect set up and life. So bado plan ni mtu 12 football team plus a sub,” he said.

His lovely wife is working on major projects and he said:

“My wife is planning to start a fashion styling company dubbed maryaprudecollections. Which means she has to move a lot and travel etc. we are very excited about it and it’s an area she is very passionate about. The page on instagram is already up and it she is already doing some consultations.”

The TV presenter-cum-radio host, who embarked on  a weight loss journey a few months ago, has transformed into a good looking man and he says in the next few months time, he’s going to look like Eric Omondi (just kidding). The power couple has always documented their fitness journey (#LitToFit) and according to Raburu, their followers should expect more episodes soon.

“Season 2 of #LitToFit is also on the horizon we are shooting with Framestudios, and will roll out the complete season soon,” he said.

The 10over10 host has also landed an ambassadorial role with a mega local fitness company.

“I’m excited to announce renewed partnership with USN Kenya Who Have taken me up as the brand ambassador as I do a #12weekChallenge on fitness along with my trainer Evelyn Owala of Eveal Health and Fitness.”

Willis Raburu has developed a thick skin for trolls and in a previous interview with Mpasho, he said he was not moved by critics.

“For a long time, a lot of people have talked, shouting about weight and I wanted so bad to ignore it but it just kept coming. If you’re told ‘you’re fat, umejaa sana or you are the elephant in the room, etc. You can brush it off but stILL itabaki.”

Relationship expert Bi Msafwari angers Kenyans after these remarks

The Citizen TV panelist, who discusses matters pertaining relationships alongside Lulu Hassan and Kanze dena, recently angered a section of Kenyans after she made shocking remarks about men who swith off their phones once they get home.

During the discussion, Bi Msafwari revealed that such men are the best and women should stick with them

 “BWANA ANAYEZIMA SIMU ANAPOFIKA KWA NYUMBA NAMPONGEZA,” SAID BI MSAFWARI.

Many were not impressed and accused Bi Msafwari of misleading those in relationships.

 

Here are some of the mixed reactions from Kenyans

Thomas Tangila: That’s a wrong advice, It means there’s someone to hid,then the gets someone to hid too,,then all phones off.Where will the marriage be haeding.My advice to my fellow men,Just be true to your wife for her to be sincere to you.If u feel u gat options,she too gat better options than u! Only Respect, Commitment and love glue us together.A if she isn’t enough for n ur culture or religion allow polygamy.Then add the other if not then let of the on who’s not good for you then,,keep what you want! Ama namna gani wagwana?

Bi Msafwari

Maria Annie: Ladies if you want to be happy keep of your husband phone away,usitake kujua shuguli zake,if he is doing something bad behind you itajitokeza with time okey

Jacqueline Nyongesa: Switching the phone off means only one thing. He is hiding something n to avoid problems it better b off. This is not helping at all. Men should be told the truth.

Annitah Annix: He must be unfaithful then…why should he? I don’t agree with y
Mercy C Rono A happy marriage is a transparent marriage. Hw about when he is at home the whole day say during leave/wikend, can he switched the 4ne the whole day??

Samuel Karanja: Instead of telling people to be faithful in marriage you are saying men should switch off their phones..!? i totally disagree with you on that

Were Dominic: A man should switch off the phone at home so that he can have quality time with his family.To avoid being interrupted by phone calls even when she is making love to the woman.mswafari is right.

Hadija Yusuf: I don’t agree with you,if you are faithful to you partner why switch off your phone,switching off the phone means he’s hiding something from you I totally disagree with you bimswafari

Anne Wangoi: That’s one way of knowing a cheater

Patrick Wekesa Busuru: That’s totally misleading and uninformed piece of advice. There is more to life than just your partner. Communication is far reaching and important to as many people as you can imagine that compose your immediate and distal circles. Emergency calls happen and require response, how about that?

Mamake Nuellah: Shes the reason why I dont have a TV

Nicholas Muendo: Switching off phone for what?haki ya nani!are you helping the families or ur destroying them,This is a New era my frien I prefer u use another word like commitment to your family than switching off the phone.

Ann Peggy: Kwani msafwari kila sku hutetea waume tu??na mama akizima pia ni shida??ama wote wazime??sielewi huu ushauri,,then they’d rather live without phones

Nyar Sakwa: Huyu Bi Mswafari is a disgrace to current marriages

Citizen Tv’s Kanze Dena breaks down in tears while narrating how she lost her daughter

She brightens our living rooms with her cute smile and always leaves us glued to the TV whenever she graces the screen. She has gone through a lot of ups and downs but that has never deterred her from working hard to achieve her dreams. She is a great example of grass to grace. She is none other than Kanze Dena.

 

The veteran journalist, who started her career at KBC and now works at Citizen, is one of the most respected media personalities in Kenya. Known for her mastery of the Swahili language, Kanze Dena is giving her counterparts a run for their money.

Well, speaking to Maisha Magic’s Story Yangu segment recently, the sexy presenter talked about her tribulations.

Kanze disclosed that she got pregnant when she was working as a waitress back in 2015.

“NILIKUWA NACHONGA VIAZI VYA CHIPS, HALAFU SASA NIKAVUKA COUNTER KUFANYA KAZI YA WAITER,” SAID DENA.

However, her relationship with the man who got her pregnant started deteriorating.

“MY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BABY’S FATHER ALSO STARTED DETERIORATING. WE WERE CONSTANTLY FIGHTING AND DISAGREEING ABOUT ALMOST EVERYTHING. IT WAS A VERY TURBULENT PERIOD FOR ME.”

She then gave birth to a baby girl named Natasha, who she wanted to give out for adoption but her late mother convinced her not to. The ambitious woman she was, she left the child with her mother to continue with her studies in Nairobi.

“I WAS ALLOWED TO GO BACK TO COLLEGE AND SIT FOR MY FINAL EXAMS. AFTER THE EXAMS, I WENT TO STAY WITH MY AUNT, WHILE DOING SOME HUSTLE HERE AND THERE.”

Three months later, she got a message that she was needed home urgently. Little did she know that her daughter had passed away. When she got home, she was welcomed by a large crowd outside her parent’s house, leaving her with more questions than answers.

“NIKASHANGAA NI NINI. HISIA ZANGU ZIKANIAMBIA NIKIMBIE NDANI YA NYUMBA NIONE KUNAENDELEA NINI.”

Upon entering the house, Dena found her baby lying on the bed with a smile on her face “Nilidhaniamelala, said the teary Dena.

Kanze Dena

According to Kanze, her daughter, who had passed away, was not sick.

“I BEGAN QUESTIONING GOD WHY HAD HE TAKEN HER AWAY JUST WHEN WE HAD A PERFECT RELATIONSHIP? MY SALVATION ALSO GOT VERY SHAKY AND THINGS GOT REALLY BAD FOR ME,” NARRATED THE EMOTIONAL KANZE DENA AS TEARS ROLLED DOWN HER CHEEKS.

This left Kanze heartbroken and she plunged into depression.

“IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE GOD WAS PUNISHING ME.”

Kanze Dena

In 2007, shortly after joining Citizen TV, her mother succumbed to colon cancer.

“I HIT DEPRESSION FOR LIKE A YEAR AND SOMETHING. THOUGHTS OF COMMITTING SUICIDE RETURNED TO MY MIND AS HAD BEEN THE CASE WHEN I LOST MY DAUGHTER,” SAID KANZE DENA AMID SOBS.

Kanze Dena

Adding:

“AT WORK, EVERYONE WAS CELEBRATING ME WITHOUT KNOWING THAT DEEP DOWN IN MY HEART I WAS HURTING BADLY. MY SELF-ESTEEM WAS VERY LOW AND I HATED MYSELF.”

This is how men can avoid being broke, according to Papa Shirandula’s Awinja

Actress-cum-radio presenter Jacky Vike popularly referred to as Awinja is a true definition of beauty and brains.

Awinja, who recently gave birth is among the few women who value their dignity. Despite fame and money, Awinja has managed to keep her life under wraps, unlike her counterparts who always thrive on controversy. From posing naked for the camera to fighting over men.

Awinja Papa Shirandula

Well, Awinja has offered some sisterly advice to men out there on the importance of saving and investing, dating women who will support you and not socialites/slay queens among other important things. Here’s what she shared on her Facebook account

“SIX WAYS MEN CAN AND SHOULD ESCAPE POVERTY 🙈🙈🙈

1. Leave Naked Women Alone: 

Yes, those women who dress like they are in the process of undressing but they have not finished. Leave them alone. Most of them are up to no good and will only cost you a whole fortune in one weekend. Instead, get yourself a real woman:-There is strength in a real woman.. Not these tuma chics without brain….Get a woman who will not only support your vision but will also push you to achieve more. A woman who will inspire you to work hard and not a woman who just makes you hard. He who finds a real woman finds a good thing and obtains favour and power to create wealth.

2. Stop Taking Cheap Food

I have no problem with you having your tea or food over the social interaction and networking. However, when you drink cheap tea or drink in cheap places you hang out with cheap people who have cheap ideas and a cheap future. Big business opportunities are found in places where the drinks and food are expensive. In fact, in places where they sell cheap tea, the only people you will find there are people who will be asking you for money. They even clap when you come knowing ‘big buyer’ has come… Lol

3. Stop being Lazy

“Man ooh Man, why art thou Lazy?” You are too lazy for your own good. You sleep the whole day and blame the govt for your poverty. “A Little Sleep, a Little Slumber, poverty shall overtake you like a political cadre in overalls”. A lot of men are just lazy when it comes to making money. They have enough energy to give a woman five orgasms, but have no energy to start one organization, hmmm that’s why it is so easy for men to manufacture children than it is to make even pegs for putting children’s clothes on the line..

4. Know Productive Things

If you keep too much junk in your head, you get a junk life. I know a lot of men who are so sharp when you are talking about girls, about soccer and about street politics, Who is Rich who is not, Who has a good house 🏡 but you can’t bring a topic about investment, innovation and business, they start looking at their phone, busy on social media doing nonsense and busy informing other idlers about his whereabouts, yawning or saying bye.. Useless things, videos and memes go viral fast than constructive things.. A man must know how to do at least one productive thing (have one skill) even without having gone to school/college…

5. Get Connected to Big Men Who are better than you

A lot of men are failing because they are not mentored. They don’t have anyone to whom they can sit down and listen, with obedience. In the old days, old men would sit young men down and show them how to hunt and kill animals… and no man was considered man enough until he has personally killed an animal… now these men of nowadays are not mentored and can’t even kill a bird.. There are men out there who have made it in life, find a way to get mentored by big men who are making waves and impacting people in our community.

6. Prayer is good…. disclaimer however

Spending your time all day just praying and fasting and doing nothing, yet you know that the Bible tells you that God will bless the works of your hands!!!!! yes yes! The blessing finds you on your way doing something, stop using prayer as an excuse not to work…..unless it is a divine (Mandate)…..not everybody is called to be a man or woman of cloth. Stop it and work!!!!

Don’t get an attitude!!! You will thank me later. We need to call out this nonsense.

Does Janet Mbugua ever plan to get back to TV?

TV personality Janet Mbugua has been a household name for the longest time.

The proud mother of one has been missing in action on TV, and her fans miss her dearly.

So what has life been like for her away from the silver screen? “Usually it’s meetings, phone calls and emails in the morning, ’cause I am attached to an organisation that is abroad,” she said.

“So it’s looking at the emails they sent before and trying to plan my day. My days don’t have a routine, that’s what I love. They’re usually fluid. I spend the mornings with my son; sometimes I take him with me but if I can’t just go on with my day which is filled with activations, events… I may be going to a school with Lifebuoy or going to record an interview. In the evenings it’s constant emails and calls back and forth. I ultimately feed my son and put him to bed. My days change but the themes are constantly the same.”

Janet Mbugua

Speaking of her going back to TV, Janet said she may have gone off screen to focus on other projects but she’ll eventually go back to the screens as a presenter.

“I’ll definitely at some time go back to TV, but I’m also really building my online brand ’cause that’s where the future lies. I am having fun. With online you can do anything, you can be who you are, talk about what you want, that’s why you see me being very active online. I’ve fallen in love with the digital space. I’ll be launching my Janet Mbugua Top 5 YouTube

Citizen Tv’s Lillian Muli Tells Of Her Lowest Moments In Life

Citizen TV’s Lillian Muli has been a victim of cyberbullying for quite a while now. She has been criticized, insulted, all things said about her but that has not deterred her from doing what she loves most. She has forged ahead and used everything that has been thrown at her as a stepping stone to greater things. The sexy Tv screen siren is indeed a strong woman.

Well, yesterday, Lillian Muli was the guest on Robert Burale’s show (RBLiveShow) where she talked a lot about herself among them her regrets, how she deals with trolls and her family life.

I walked away: TV Presenter Lilian Muli talks about abusive marriages

The mother of one, who has managed to keep her head above water, revealed that she has learnt to ignore trolls and focus on the positive things in life.

“I have learnt not to take things to heart. Not to look at the world as a negative place. When people attack you, most of the time they are probably going through their own struggles and that’s why they choose to attack you. I don’t have a thick skin, just like any other person, my heart bleeds as well. I have very low moments but I have learnt to keep myself busy and try to focus on positive things in life.”

The popular media personality also revealed that she is a prayerful woman, something that many of us didn’t know.

“I pray a lot. I have a personal relationship with God. Prayer has done wonders in my life,” she said.

When asked about her regrets, Lillian opened up and she said;

“I have made  countless mistakes but now I’m very careful so that I don’t  repeat.”

Adding;

“Trusting too much, surrounded by the wrong people, not able to tell real friends from fake. Sharing personal information with friends who later talk behind your back and criticize you.”

Robert Burale and Lillian Muli

Many lies have been said about Lillian Muli for instance those claiming she relies on sponsors to foot her bills, but she has put the record straight that she has worked hard for everything she owns.

“The most painful and humiliating thing I have  ever heard or seen on social media is that
Lillian lives a certain lifestyle because it has been given to her by a certain class of people. We work hard and have side hustles. I have worked hard for everything that belongs to me and my son. So when people spin this narrative, it does get to you but again at the end of the day, I know who I am.”

The multi-talented presenter has called out the keyboard warriors or rather people who hide behind the keyboard to insult others and here is the message she has for them.

“If you’re hiding behind a keyboard to insult or bully someone, to say something that is an outright lie, SHAME ON YOU!. Think about the things you say and how damaging they can be to the people that you care about most (your family) before you even think about whoever you’re attacking.

Think about the damage that lies in words and some of the things you put out there are social footprints that will never ever be erased. The minute you fabricate lies and put on social media, you’re not only destroying that person’s image, name but yourself as well. You need to seek professional help. If you thrive on dissing people and calling out people you didn’t even know, probably you’re going through a lot yourself. You are an angry, insecure person and need help. So STOP.”

She also advised those going depression and contemplating suicide because of being trolled online to borrow a leaf from her.

“If you’re being bullied on social media, borrow a leaf from me. I was bullied for three days on social media after I made a mistake which I later apologized for. I went through so much hate on social media from people who don’t even know me.

IF YOU MADE A MIStake and people have called you out, apologize and move on. Judgement is for God. Be at peace with yourself and learn from that mistake. But if somebody is going out of their way to talk about your weight, marital status, ignore them. I delete and block such comments. you have a lot to achieve.”

Lillian Muli, who is among the celebrities who keep their private lives under wraps, also revealed the reason why she rarely posts photos of her seven-year-old son on social media.

“I decided to keep my son away from the limelight after he one day came home from school and told me ‘mum, my friends said this and that about you’.  This is my path and I choose not to expose him on social media.”

The sexy mother, who is in her mid-thirties says that her mother is her greatest supporter and role model.

“I look up to my mother. She’s a God-fearing and very successful woman. My mother is a prayer warrior. Her prayers have kept me going. When we lost our dad, she raised the three of us by herself. She is a superwoman. This is who I want to be, who I aim to be.”

Lillian confessed that she and her ex-husband Moses Kanene had disagreements in their relationship just like any other and that doesn’t mean that they can’t talk.

“He is the father of my son, I will always love him.”

And she concluded,

“Stop meddling in other people’s lives. Do You.”
