I have carried out 5 abortions, unknowingly killing my twins in the process

The topic of abortion is a sensitive one but not until you hear the story of one Nairobi woman who has carried out not one, not two but five abortions.

Martha Anne has seen it all, but the sad thing about all this is that her last termination was  of a set of twins.

Speaking about her harrowing experience on a local TV station she says;

“I grew up in a very protective family so here I was at 17 after finishing my O Levels someone asked my dad for my hand in marriage and just like that my dad booked me a ticket to India to go study.

There was money, booze and freedom. It was not before long that I started having irregular menses so I went to visit a doctor.

To my shock the doctor told me that my body was self aborting, to say I was shocked would be an understatement given that I have always wanted kids.”

She adds

“I now went deep into partying six months later I was pregnant for the same guy.When I told him he panicked and  convinced me to terminate it.

 I went to the same doctor and carried out the abortion.”

The wise men said ‘Once bitten twice shy’ but that was not the case for Martha Anne given that months later she was pregnant.

She says

“We went on studying but 6 months later I was pregnant for the same guy. I started developing stomach pains.

When I went to the doctor he told me that the pregnancy was not so good thus carrying it to term would put me at a risk, so it was terminated.

After the third abortion I got into depression, more s#x , more booze, the body does not forget some things, most of my pregnancies were always at 4 months.

2 years later I got pregnant with the same guy. I had purposed to keep this baby until a friend of mine busted my bubble after he went and told the guy.

He came back and convinced me to terminate it, to date I still hate the smell of Hospitals.”

‘I’ve been married for 18 years and my mother-in-law does not know where we live’ Brags city woman

Martha goes on to narrate that she got pregnant for a fifth time, went on to terminate it without knowing she had carried twins.

“I met a guy who made me fall for him and within no time I was pregnant again. He started noticing and he panicked because he was there on sponsorship.

So the naive me felt pity for him and decided to terminate it. I went to a doctor and the doctor said Ok. In India abortion is legal until three months they do not have an issue.

However after three months you must have a doctor’s letter. After they started the process, I started experiencing breathing problems and they stopped and took me for an Ultra sound.

They found out I was expecting twins. He even asked why I wanted to get rd of such beautiful kids. I told him that I just wanted them out.”

She adds

“I was in the maternity for three days with excruciating pain, sorrow, pain beyond measure nothing was happening.

People were here to give birth yet I was here to get rid of mine.

At some point I wished I could keep the babies but it was already too late since I had already been induced. In the morning I just prayed to God and told him how sorry I was.

I got some strength and went to where the babies had been put. Seeing them hugging each other broke me. I cried so hard.

I have never cried so hard in my life. They looked exactly like their dad.”

The crazy and bizarre traditions associated with Kenyans

The moment you realize how many of these bizarre traditions Kenya has, you will realize why Kenya is not only unique, its also full of weird traditions .

Having 42 tribes in Kenya, it also means that cultures between the tribes are different and we will tell you why.

Here are some of the bizarre cultures Kenya has.

1. Communities that kill twins

In the past, some communities would dump twins or triplets in the forest or immediately kill them .

This was because bearing of twins was considered evil and the mother would then be made to attend a cleansing ritual to put out the evil.

In some communities in Kenya still practice this away from the hawk eye whereby they still believe that first born twins or more children for that matter are an omen.

In addition to this, children whoa re also born already having teeth, those  born with their feet first, children born with both the female and male private parts and boys born with one testicle are also  considered as bad omen.

2. Wife Inheritance

This is a tradition that has been there among some communities in Kenya.

Women are usually forced to remarry to the family of the deceased. In many cases it is the brother of the deceased who inherits the widow and provides for her.

This is a tradition that is not common to the rest of the world.

 3. Sleeping with dead bodies before funeral

Have you ever heard that in the past, customs required widows in the community to sleep in the same room with their dead husbands before burial?

Well, reportedly, this was part of a cleansing ritual to purify such women in readiness for inheritance.

These are some of the old customs that may have been put aside but old habits die hard as you might find some of these habits continue to happen in the rural most remote areas in some of these communities.

 4. Night running

The nocturnal practice of running around communities is carried out across Kenya’s Western region.

The main purpose of night running or what the night runners do is , run naked and terrify people.

Night runners in Kenya term it as a sport.

5. Death in the forest

In nomadic communities, the sick or aged were not allowed to die in the home.

Instead, they were removed and taken into the forest, hillside or lay abandoned by the river.

A certain belief in a future life is indicated by burial of a calabash of milk beside the corpse and by the fact that the name of the departed is never mentioned lest the spirit should regard it as a call and come back.

This may be a tradition that still continues to happen with these communities.

What is considered a taboo among Kisii community

There are some acts considered to be a taboo among the kisii community. They are as follows;

Circumcised boys going to master bedroom

They believe that once a boy is circumcised, they should not go to their parents bedroom and even their sister’s bedroom.

This shows that once the act is done the boys are mature enough and so they should respect some areas to visit.

At this point the boys are expected to behave in a more mature way and expect their young ones to respect them.

Girls wearing trousers 

This is considered to be disrespectful if girls wear trousers, more so those tight ones that shows off their curves. The Kisii man is not supposed to see how blessed you are.

Mothers should not dine in their daughters houses

It is a taboo for mother to enter especially her married daughters house. She also shouldn’t eat chicken at her daughters house as it makes one to be seen as corrupt.

Also going to her daughters house is considered to be a sign of disrespect to their daughters and thus like seeing their daughter’s nakedness.

Fathers too are not expected to set their feet in their married sons houses as it is considered as going to bed with their daughters in-law.

Knife, torch, rope…Here are some of the weird burial items and rituals

Different communities have different ways of burying their loved ones once they depart from this world but some practices are creepy.

From the Luhya’s to Luo’s and other communities around the world, we look at some of the weirdest burial rituals, although some are not being practiced at the moment.

1. Strangulation

This modern practice has derived ideas from the ancient ritual of Sati. The traditional funeral ceremony on the South Pacific Island of Fiji involves killing of the near and dear ones of the deceased.

The practice implies that the dead ones should not be left alone in the other world and must be accompanied by a loved one in the hereafter so as to make the process of death less painful.

2. Exposing dead to vultures

Another bizarre tradition being revitalized by the Parsi community of Mumbai. Mainly a ritual practiced by the Zoroastrian religion, by first preparing the dead by cleansing and bathing them and then setting them up on Towers of their religious temples to vultures.

The idea behind this tradition is that the dead must get rid of their physical forms and must only survive in one being, i.e. their spiritual selves.

3. Mass Scavenging
This ancient ritual practice by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. The ritual involves throwing all the dead people in a vicinity of town, village or city in one pit and then letting wild animals loose for them to feed on the dead bodies.

4. Sky burial

One of the most bizarre funeral traditions still in practice. Sky burial or ritual dissection is a funerary practice in the Chinese provinces of Tibet, Qinghai, and Inner Mongolia. A human corpse is cut into small pieces and placed on a mountaintop, exposing it to the elements (mahabhuta) and animals – especially predatory birds. The function of the sky burial is simply to dispose of the remains in as generous a way as possible.

5. Being buried while seated

This practice is common among the Bukusu,a tribe  in Kenya,they believe that burying a loved one while seated is a sign of respect.

According to  Mzee Museve Mwidakho, for the dead to fit into the coffin, the elders must hold a special conversation with them before they are buried.

6. Being buried with a torch

According to Luhya cultures if one is slain by certain rituals must be carried out.

Such rites are mainly carried out during the send off a send-off of a renowned man whose life was cut short by slayers.

This was the case for slain business man Jacob Juma, Daniel Wanjala, a member of the Luhya community, told eDaily that

“The purpose of the torch is to help Juma hunt for his killers any time of day or night. The torch will be put in the casket while it is lit; and the day it goes off, a million deeds shall follow his killers – including running mad, dying in an accident or being involved in any other bad incident.”

7. Being buried with a knife

This ritual is also carried where a respectable member of the society loses his life in the hands of murderers.

The purpose of the knife is to help the deceased avenge for his death,this is despite the fact that the assassins might have used other weapons to slay the deceased.

Things people born after 2000 will never enjoy nor have to deal with

 

Children born in the 1980’s and early 90’s had  fond memories of the things they used to do, but are long forgotten. Here are some things children born in the new millennium will never experience

1. A Compact disk player

Back then this was used to play music by inserting a disk. It had features such as forward, pause and rewind and it was only for the chosen few who could afford it.

2. Old School TV

Back then there were no smart TV’S with a  wide selection of channels. The old style TV was the only thing one would watch and at specific timings since it only had one channel.

 

 

 

3. Old School phone

Thank God for whoever invented smart phones. Back then there were no smart phones,  so Facebook, Instagram and Twitter were unheard of. For you to use this phone you had to have a directory to be able to dial

4. Old school camera

Unlike now when phones are affordable, back then only a few people had cameras and were used by the village photographers  who used them to run their business. Selfies were unheard of and such cameras used film to store photos unlike now where cameras have inbuilt storage space and memory card slots.

5. Cassette

This was used to record music and programs one would like to listen to later. There was no You Tube or Live Blogs and this was the only way of survival.

6. Radio

Unlike now when radio’s are more improved with smart technology, back then they were controlled manually and they used batteries to keep them  on during broadcasting. They also had an antennae to help with the network and frequency issues.

‘Pay me for all the times we have slept together for the last 10 years ‘ Angry woman demands of her estranged husband

During the morning show, Mike Mondo, was flabbergasted as to why women are developing an auctioneers mentality.

An auctioneers mentality is one where when things don’t work out between a couple, one of them makes sure to get back all the things they shared between them either as gifts or in monetary terms.

A woman was caught in a video asking to be paid back for all the times the husband had slept with her.

“Give me my Ksh120,000 you are not man enough I will go look for a man and a half who will take care of me and the kids even if he kids are not his I want a man who can afford to build me a house,you can not even remember how I payed your hospital bill after you were admitted in ICU now that you have gotten yourself a job you feel like I am now useless.

Pay me for the 10 years you have slept with me and for all the times I have fed you and even payed for your driving licence so that you could start working with the public service vehicles. Even this phone is mine and I have a witness to prove that I bought it.”

 

argue

The man, who is a little tipsy answers back by saying he also wants to be paid

“Before you tell me to take care of kids who are not even mine you should also pay me for living with the kids .”

The woman’s ranting seems to have rubbed men the wrong way, they feel that she is disrespectful not only for the fact that she talks back at her husband but because she keeps account of everything she has ever done for him.

Wakanai had this to say

“That woman already has two kids from two different men, she is a sampled good and she is talking so bad after 10 years of being married to the man. Going by the video she looks like she is well kept. That case should even be taken to the DPP and he should be payed for undergoing through mental torture. And the men who fathered those kids should also pay him for taking care of their kids.”

Another said

“These women are crazy no wonder even the other man left, huyu hata shetani hawezi vumilia”

Another added

“This should be a lesson to other men who depend on women on their way up they should stop na si tafadhali”

It is a high time men learnt to be the heads of the families and take responsibility rather than leave everything to their women.
