‘Never lay a finger on a woman’ Maina Kageni reacts to Wajir Woman rep assault


A photo of Wajir woman rep Fatuma Gedi’s swollen face after being slapped by her MP counterpart in the precincts of Parliament has elicited mixed reaction.

Women are outraged, and men want to know what she dd to him to land a slap.

fatuma gedi crying

Maina Kageni on Classic 105 on Friday, asked listeners if Kenyan women are safe and why men always ask what a woman does to be hit by a man.


It’s amazing how men have rallied around this guy and they are asking this question: What did she do to deserve this? That is really pissing me off, said Maina.

To him that was not right at all to even lay a finger on a woman.

Serena Williams vocalizes domestic violence conversation should expand to men-particularly young boys

‘This women get beaten up by their husbands at home but you will never hear about it. Why is it that it becomes a problem when beaten in public? That should not be an issue at all to be discussed because she might have made the MP upset.’

This is what one of the male caller said. They felt that women at times took advantage of them especially if they knew your weaknesses. They were of the opinion that if at all the women rep was assaulted, then it was because of something she did to offend him.

Maina wondered about all the comments that were coming from the men’s side. He wondered whether those were the kind of men and fathers in 2019 or 1890. One women callers asked,

What do these men gain after beating us, do they gain a kilo? As they ask what the women rep did to provoke the MP they should also ask what the MP did to her that made upset also. Women don’t rant without a reason’ there has to be something.’ 

Other comments were;

Sometimes one slaps keeps stupidity out of a woman.

Sometimes these women can really push you off to limits. They should mind how to control their mouths because we are tired of being shouted back at!!

These Kenyan are tough headed and they deserve to be beaten. Why is it only in our parliament and not in other countries? They should control their yapping to avoid such violence!!!

I stabbed my husband after he told me to leave our six year marriage

Maina Kageni was caught in a situation and found it so surreal.

A woman over the weekend got into a domestic fight with her husband after he asked her to leave. He actually wanted her to leave her, after six years of marriage and he said ‘I’m done with you, get out of my life’.

So she took it easy and on Sunday when she was supposed to pack and leave, she went absolutely crazy. She stabbed him in the arm, twice. Luckily, the neighbors heard the commotion and came and rescued him. She was taken to the police station where she spent two nights. and is now out on bail.

And when Maina met her he asked her just one question – Why didn’t you just go, he doesn’t want you anymore?

She responded,’I am going nowhere and this relationship is not ending. Siendi mahali.

In her mind the weekend incident did not happen. That man is not leaving her.

Maina sought to know from listeners what they mean when they say they are not leaving regardless.

‘What do you mean by you are not going nowhere ladies?’ Maina continued.


He opened up the discussion to listeners and those online.

Others were of opinion that the guy could have looked for a better way to tell her woman that the relationship was over. Most of the ladies were of opinion that they could not walk out of the relationship without having a place to head to.

How the murder suspect of Parliament cop Helen Kwamboka was tracked down

When they are in a relationship they tend to be settled hence when asked to leave they cannot. One male caller said that when a woman wants to kill you they can without hesitation hence the lady in question should be talked to before killing the husband.

Among the callers were men with different opinions on the same. The comments were;

Women should understand that were are nothing but strangers and if I asked one to leave she should because she is not my mother and I will inform the security not to allow her back to my house.

Do these women understand that at times we are not in love with them. We just marry them to have children and thus all so they should leave.

When someone is not interested in you anymore and asks you to leave there is nothing you do to change their mind.

One caller was of opinion that if you want to leave a woman you should tell her in a more passionate way. When you just wake up one morning and tell someone that you have been staying with you wanna leave them it really breaks their heart.

Pilot intentionally crashes plane to kill wife at baby shower



– Charl Viljoen is said to have stormed out of a club house and stolen a small plane

– He allegedly made fly-pasts and a threatening phone call leading guests to flee

– Footage showed the plane crashing in a huge fireball, in which he died

A pilot died in a horrific fireball after crashing a plane into a club in Botswana in an apparent bid to kill his wife after a row.

Charl Viljoen, a pilot with Kalahari Air Services, is said to have stormed out of the club house where his wife was attending a baby shower before stealing a small aircraft.

He allegedly made a number of threatening fly-pasts and a menacing phone call to someone at the club, prompting guests to flee for safety.

Footage showed the plane flying barely above the ground before it crashed into the venue near Mochudi, Botswana, close to the country’s border with South Africa.

The pilot was killed but his wife, Natasha Viljoen, and other guests were unharmed after they had grown suspicious and left the club house.

One witness told The Citizen: ‘They had a party at Matsieng, a baby shower, and that’s one of the Kalahari Air Services pilots and he had a fight with his wife there.

‘He actually hit his wife, and everybody told him to f**k off because you don’t treat a woman like that.’

The Matsieng flying club in Botswana said the pilot had been an ‘uninvited guest’ at the function in its aerodrome.

They said he had made ‘a number of low level fly pasts’, sparking fears for the guests’ safety and prompting them to evacuate the club.

It is also claimed he had called a friend at the party while he was in the cockpit and asked if his wife was still there.

He then made an ‘extreme low level run’ in which the aircraft crashed into the club house, destroying the building and traffic control tower and killing him.

The club added that they believed the pilot ‘had no permission to fly the aircraft involved.’

The fire resulting from the crash also destroyed 13 vehicles which were parked nearby but nobody else was injured, the club said.

The plane involved was described as a 2016 Beechcraft Kingair B200 aircraft A2-MBM.


Popular Kenyan vlogger Natalie Tewa kicked out of home by boyfriend

Natalie Tewa and Rnaze were our picture-perfect social media couple.

The two, who are famous travel vloggers, won the hearts of many people with their beautiful love story however all that comes to an end today.

Natalie Tewa is trending after her Instagram account was hacked and the hacker exposed her as a cheater. The cat was let out of the bag prompting her to clarify things. So yes she cheated but why did she? Wasn’t this a perfect couple.

Natalie claims that she did not cheat. Their relationship had been strained for a while now. Could it be because they were in a blended relationship? Natalie was a good stepmother to Rnaze’s son and she had a good relationship with his baby mama.

25-year-old Natalie took to social media to announce the end of their relationship because of physical abuse.

Their break up is so nasty because after that, Rnaze went ahead to delete all their pictures taken together including their Youtube posts together.

The two had advertised their long-awaited Asia trip, and will go ahead with the trip solo to ensure she doesn’t compromise her work.

Natalie after ranting later took to social media a few hours later to reveal that she was physically abused. She pleaded with those who witnessed the assault incidences for action to be taken.

Rnaze was not left behind in the social media rant. As he turns 30 today, it marks the end of a relationship he had worked hard on for so long.

He returned from a trip from Uganda after a four-day trip only to discover she had cheated on him.

He is not big on posting his private life on social media but with this, he needed to.

The humiliating things women married to mega rich men have to do


Society envies these women, who on the face of it seem to live a pampered life.

According to their stories, they live lives of poverty because their super rich husbands make them do ridiculous things to get money.

They live in the lap of luxury yet are given so little financial independence they can’t even buy themselves a cup of coffee.

Diana Parker, a partner at legal firm Withers says that economic cruelty is regularly coupled with ‘very controlling frightening behaviour which strips a woman of self-esteem’.

Diana recalls one particularly harrowing case of a woman who was regularly presented with a ‘menu’ listing sexual acts, each of which had a price tag, as her only means of accessing money.

‘There will be a significant number of your readers being abused economically who may be paraded on nights out in expensive diamond brooches, but have to justify every penny spent, on a sandwich or a coffee, while they are interrogated about who they were with when they bought it, ‘was it a girlfriend, or really a boyfriend?’.

‘And the men in these relationships will often have bought themselves a new Ferrari or returned from a weekend’s shooting.’

Vanessa Lloyd-Platt, whose firm represents women divorcing wealthy entrepreneurs, celebrities, MPs and even judges, is also all too familiar with financial abuse within marriages and often hears of wives being told they must perform sexual favours in return for cash or access to bank cards.

‘I’ve acted on behalf of wives who have been told by their wealthy husbands: “I’ll give you some money but you have to have sex with me tonight”, or who insisted their partners do something se3ually they wouldn’t normally want to do, to earn it,’ says Vanessa.

‘Clients tell me this makes them feel like prostitutes, it’s something they don’t even admit to their best friends.

‘We’ve also had cases where women have had to phone their husband’s secretary and say, “I’m going out and have no money, can you put some on my debit card?” and the secretary will interrogate them about what they need the money for. Later they know they will be asked to provide receipts to prove it.

‘Husbands will often spend huge amounts on these “trophy wives”, but that is only if they wear what they want them to wear, drive the exact car they want them to drive and go where they want them to go. They have no financial freedom.’

Vanessa recalls one penniless client, whose husband ran a huge multi-national, who was forced to borrow money from friends to buy regular underwear because he would only purchase se3y lingerie for her, but then locked it away in a safe when he wasn’t around, leaving her literally knickerless.

Another husband took his wife’s toothbrush and toothpaste when he went away on business and left no money for replacements.

Then there was the woman whose husband insisted she work for free in his business, but would refuse to pay the nanny, and the gardener who tended their perfectly manicured lawns, leaving her thoroughly humiliated when they asked her for their wages and she had no way of remunerating them.

 71 per cent of survivors of domestic abuse reported having been deprived of essentials, and the money to purchase them, while a survey in 2015

‘This husband would say ‘If you’re nice to me I’ll pay the nanny this week’,’ says Vanessa.

‘She hated the fact that when mums from her children’s expensive school invited her on nights out she would have to tell them she couldn’t go because she couldn’t afford it, and they would look at her incredulously, assuming she was just too stuck up to socialise with them. People’s perception of the wealthy is that they have wonderful lives, but money can often complicate relationships and they can be some of the unhappiest people on the planet.’


‘My step dad raped me and my mum just said it’s ok since we are not related by blood’ Woman narrates ordeal

The rate at which women are being sexually abused by their male relatives is alarming with most committing suicide or getting into depression.

During the Classic 105 show, a woman narrated how an uncle  took advantage of her poor background to demand for sexual favors so that he would continue paying her fees.

“My uncle told my parents that he would help pay my education back in Nairobi and they accepted. When I eventually came to Nairobi everything went well for the first term and the second one but in third term he told me that I had to sleep with him so that he continues paying my school fees.

I was desperate so I accepted and the worst thing is that my aunt had traveled so I could not talk to her, so recently I missed my period and on taking a test I found out I am pregnant.”


She adds that on telling her uncle about the shocking news, he distanced himself from it all adding that she should find somewhere to live.

“I told my uncle and he blankly told me’hajui hio story and nafaa kutafuta mahali pa kukaa’. I cannot risk going back to my fathers place because I fear he might beat me up or he might to send me away.”

‘My man has slept with 8 of our house helps, it is humiliating’ Cries Woman

Another woman also narrated how she was raped and that she is expecting twins, adding that she feels helpless because she does not know what to do.

“I am Shiru and I have been passing though the same tribulations. I am only 17 and my step dad raped me and when I told my mother she told me it is ok since we are not related by blood. I am now pregnant with twins and I do not know what to do.”

mum pregnant

Another female caller narrates how her blood uncle, who is her father’s best friend, tried to rape her and when he failed he made a vow to himself to never show any love or affection.

“I am in shock, personally there is a time my uncle tried to rape me but thanks to my kichwa ngumu he did not succeed. He had been told to help me get me a job because he was the best friend to my dad.

Up to date he hates me so much but I never really told my dad about it but I told my mum to please stop sending my uncle to get me a job because his main aim was sleeping with me.”
