‘I had no idea that we had two dangerous encounters’ Julie Gichuru narrates a life threatening experience in a plane

Media Personality Julie Gichuru has shared a life threatening experience travelling to Kigali, Rwanda.

She narrated how the plane had a problem landing twice because it was raining heavily. The pilot aborted landing twice and all this time she didn’t know what was going on as she was busy listening to music.

Julie2

“Flew from Nairobi to Kigali this afternoon. As we tried to land in Kigali it was overcast and raining so we aborted landing twice. This flight has taught me some key lessons.

1. I had earphones on, listening to music- loud, as I often do. I had no idea that we had two dangerous encounters. If we went down I would have been oblivious till the last few seconds. Being present in the moment is an important thing… Or, is it? 🤨”

Julie3

The situation was a scary one and she other people were literally praying and even some recorded goodbye videos for their loved ones.


2. When we landed I realised just how serious the situation was. Others on the flight had been praying and doing all manner of things in alarm. @john_seel actually recorded a goodbye video for his Mum! Yes, he did! 🤣 (we want to watch it John 🤣) So sweet though 😅 …and there I was, totally clueless.
Perspective is a fascinating thing.

But despite everything, she learned a lot from the whole experience.

Julie1

3. Actually, if anything I was in great spirits while everyone else was panicking. Unaware of the aborted landings I did notice we were off course. This was terrain I had never seen before. I thought we had simply been redirected. I said to myself, ‘sometimes in life it is so important to go off course, in going onto a less travelled path you see new things and learn so much more.’ I was very impressed with my profound thought! As people prayed and recorded goodbye videos for loved ones I was marvelling at the terrain and taking pictures thinking to myself, ‘Wakanda beautiful continent is this!’ 😂😂😂 (Aren’t the pics lovely though!) Good people, Isn’t life interesting!? 😄😄😄🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤

Fashion Alert!! Kenyan Women Slaying in Their 30s, 40s And 50s

Women in their 40’s and 50’s are giving girls a run for their money with their fashion. Gone are the days where their fashion was considered old school.

This list of older Kenyan women proves that age ain’t nothing but a number. Go through;

Margaret Kenyatta

The First Lady keeps it simple and descent and proves to ladies that life begins after 40, with her unique sense of fashion.

Margaret, always steps out in dresses or skirt suits, and at her age she has a beautiful  body and a beautiful smile to top it up, an added bonus is the short natural hair she rocks making her regal.

Prisca Namwamba

Prisca Namwamba, wife to former MP for Budalangi Ababu Namwamba, is not shy when it comes to fashion and flaunting her beautiful body in flattering attire.

Be it in swimsuits, office wear or casual clothing  she simply looks amazing.

prisca-2

Cathy Kiuna 

“Mum” as she is fondly referred to by her fans and church members is a true definition that being in Christianity does not have to be boring when it comes to fashion.

Cathy, a pastor at Jubillee Christian Church (JCC) together with her husband has a great sense of fashion  and she seems to have a special place for beautiful heels which is every girls dream.The mother of 3 does not shy away from dressing well.

 

Kathy_Sexy_Kiuna

 

Idah Odinga

Wife to NASA leader Raila Odinga, Idah knows how to dress conservatively without looking “old”. The mother of four who is found of rocking African attires still has it when it comes to fashion and we applaud her for that.CahpvwYWAAEQKkj

‘I earn a six salary figure but I am looking for a sponsor’ Cries city woman

Julie Gichuru

Believe it or not Julie in her forties dresses better than some of us in our twenties. She knows how to dress for different occasions unlike the normal Kenyan girls who just pick stuff from the wardrobe.

While some of us are busy following youtube tutorials for make up lessons, hers is always on point regardless of whether she is at work or at home. She is a true definition of beauty with brains given that she is a mother of 5, an entrepreneur and a wife .

Sheila Mwanyigha

The talented media personality is ageing like fine wine, the curvaceous and beautiful Sheila always brings out her best foot forward in the fashion department.

Although no one knows her exact age it is argued she is in her late thirties or early forties, which she is embracing so well, she knows how to dress her body without over doing it and we love it.

With the current generation where people are dying to show off skin, Sheila dresses with the intention of letting team mafisi imagine what’s hidden under the beautiful figure hugging dresses.

‘IT WAS A TRAUMATIZING TIME’ Kenyan celebrity parents open up on losing their children

It is hard losing a child. No parent is ever prepared for this and when death knocks most parents mourn for years while some never over come the loss.

Dr Burton Grebin once said 

“The death of a child is the most single most traumatic event in medicine.To lose a child is to lose a piece of yourself “.

Some Kenyan celebrities have experienced this loss first hand and some don’t publicly express it, it doesn’t mean they aren’t hurting. So the next time you meet them on the street be kind because kindness does not hurt.

  1. Michael Okinyi

The TV presenter lost his son after he succumbed to complications related to Sickle cell anemia. In 2015, Okinyi announced the demise of his son to the public in the tweet below.

Before his untimely death  Twani was to turn 5 years

‘All I have is pure hate for her’ City man narrates how his ex texted his mother asking her to take back her broke son after he lost his job

2. Shiru wa GP

The venacular artiste famously known for hits such as ‘Agiginya’ was a mother to twins (boy and girl) before losing one of them after he developed a chest infection that saw him admitted to Nairobi Women’s Hospital, where he sadly lost the battle.

In an earlier interview with Jeff on Inooro Fm, Shiru wa GP opened up about losing her son and she said:

“It was a bad experience because I didn’t expect it. It’s one of those situations when you have tried so hard then you finally have something good and then the devil snatches it from your hands. I had tried conceiving for 9 years, heading to 10 when God blessed me with twins. I was very excited even though they did not make it to term as they were born 2 months premature. At that point, I didn’t even ask people to pray with me as I knew God had already blessed me in a big way. It (the loss of my baby and my admission) was not only challenging emotionally but also financially as the bill had accumulated up to Shs4.5 million so I had to reach out for financial aid which wasn’t easy.”

God has been gracious to her as she still has her daughter.

3. Dbanj

Nigeria artiste Dbanj is among other celebrities who have lost their kids. Early this year his son drowned in a swimming pool at the residence leaving the young parents heartbroken.

Dbanj termed the period of losing his son as a hard one but he remained  thankful to God for seeing him through.

‘The past few weeks have been incredibly trying and difficult, but God’s love has kept me and my family going. I can’t thank my team enough and the incredible love from you all. May God keep us all. #StrongerTogether’…🙏🙏🙏”

I YEARNED TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE IN MY SLEEP HE WOULD COME IN MY DREAMS, I WAS HOLDING HIM AGAIN. IT WAS A TRAUMATIZING TIME AND I ACTUALLY SAID TO MY HUSBAND WE ARE NEVER GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD AGAIN I CAN’T GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN.

‘As Africans We will not accept this!!!’ Julie Gichuru strongly states after video of a white man assaulting a hotel employee in Uganda goes viral

Media Personality Julie Gichuru has come out condemning a white man who was caught in a video assaulting a hotel staff at Grand Imperial hotel in Uganda.

The man who has now been identified as Jimmy Tailor lives in Arizona,In the video, he is heard screaming at the staffer that he disgraced Jesus. He then tries several times to punch him all this, while the staffer restrains himself.

Julie Gichuru has called out to Africans not to accept being treated badly further urging the American Embassy to take action against the man for assault.

Jimmy Tailor

She wrote

“Dear Africans, fellow brothers and sisters, what is this? We cannot accept this. We are not longer subject to colonial masters. Our forefathers who died for our freedom would weep if they saw this. When you see this kind of behaviour record it and push for action. So, who is this man? I am told this was recorded in Uganda and he sounds American. The US Embassy should establish if he is one of theirs, apologise for his behaviour and he needs to be charged with assault and deported asap. NO. We will not accept this!!! ******************************************************Update: actually, I have changed my mind. We should NOT deport people like this straight away. They should serve some time in the jail cells of the land of the people they have insulted. Yes. Then maybe they will think twice about exposing their reprehensible attitudes on our continent.”

Julie Gichuru opens up about losing her third-born and being totally broken

Media personality Julie Gichuru is thankful to God for her family.

In 2005, Julie Gichuru lost a son and she revealed it was the worst thing to ever happen to her.

Julie Gichuru

Julie Gichuru with her family

Sometimes back while responding to questions from the audience during a poetry session, Julie opened up and tearfully explaining how her son died.

MY HOUSE HELP WAS FEEDING THE CHILD, HE GOT CHOKED, RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS MANAGED TO RESUSCITATE HIM, BUT LATER COULD NOT STAND THE AMOUNT OF ADRENALINE INJECTED IN HIS BODY, THE BOY LEFT US.

Also in an interview with Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central last year, she talked about the tragic moment in their life and advised mothers to be extra careful especially with babies less than a year old.

“It was incredibly hard and I need to say now that our baby choked on pureed food, and to all the mothers and fathers out there, the biggest cause of child death under one year is choking. Children can choke on liquids and they can choke on solids, we didn’t know that and it happened,” she said in part.

Adding

“You see a lot of me out there but my life is my family, my life is my children. I was devastated beyond anything, I am telling you the kind of grief where you cannot breathe. I would literally would wake up and search for breath because I had no breath in my body.”

I YEARNED TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE IN MY SLEEP HE WOULD COME IN MY DREAMS, I WAS HOLDING HIM AGAIN. IT WAS A TRAUMATIZING TIME AND I ACTUALLY SAID TO MY HUSBAND WE ARE NEVER GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD AGAIN I CAN’T GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN.

Well, God later blessed her with another child and yesterday, she shared memories of her dead child leaving many in tears.

WHEN WE LOST OUR BELOVED THIRDBORN WE WERE DEVASTATED. DESTROYED. TOTALLY BROKEN. BUT WE DID NOT LET GO OF OUR LOVE FOR GOD. IN SPITE OF OUR DEVASTATION AND GRIEF WE KEPT OUR FAITH. ONE YEAR LATER THE LORD GOD BLESSED US WITH A CHILD, AND WE NAMED HIM WANGAI, BECAUSE WE KNEW HE WAS A GIFT, WE HAD LEARNT THAT ULTIMATELY ALL CHILDREN BELONG TO GOD.

Julie Gichuru's son

“‘He belongs to God’, we said, ‘And the Lord has gifted us with the blessing to be his parents.’ Now Wangai is completing his coming of age ceremony. This process has enriched him with both cultural and Christian knowledge and values. We could not be more thankful to the almighty Lord! #AwesomeLord

 

DURING THE MASS THIS MORNING THE PRIEST SAID,
DO YOU SEEK THE FATHER WHO GIVES YOU BREAD OR THE BREAD THAT THE FATHER GIVES YOU?

AS WE ARE TOLD IN JOHN 6:27
DO NOT WORK FOR THE FOOD THAT PERISHES, BUT FOR THE FOOD THAT ENDURES TO ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH THE SON OF MAN WILL GIVE TO YOU. FOR ON HIM GOD THE FATHER HAS SET HIS SEAL.

WE ARE THANKFUL, BLESSED AND ENRICHED 🙏❤❤❤.

Julie Gichuru’s candid confession about not being able to cook

Looking at her, one would never guess Julie Gichuru can’t cook. I mean she’s successful, has a good man and is a mother to four adorable kids. How now?

 

She admitted as much adding she was never interested when it came to cooking.

The media personality shared a talk she had with her father on social media

“My father was reading the newspaper but stopped to contribute to a debate I was having with my mother. He interjected firmly, “But Julie, you must learn how to cook!” He was perturbed but I could tell it came from a place of love. So here’s the low down. I was a teenager & I had pointedly refused to learn how to cook. As the only daughter in the family it was obvious & apparently a source of social embarrassment. Indeed, in an African – Asian home this was unheard of, girls should know their place & the kitchen was part of that. But I was adamant, I was disinterested in the art of cooking… Read the full story on FB Julie Gichuru Fanpage 🤗🤗🤗 Just sharing a piece of me.”

She proved her father wrong by getting married to a man who wasn’t interested if she could cook or not.

Tutawezana Na Yeye Kweli? Julie Gichuru Hangs Out And Takes Selfies With Wonder Woman Actress

I was there to see it happen. Actually, I also got to take a selfie with actress Connie Nielsen, who stars as Gal Gadot’s on screen mum in both Wonder Woman and Justice League.

She is the fierce leader of the Amazons in both films, who live in a fairytale-esque realm, which is closed off from the real world by a mysterious shield.

Anyways, Julie Gichuru hosted the stellar, award winning actress for a show at the Capital Club yesterday. The event was thronged by diplomats, media executives, entrepreneurs and the wealthy. Notable were the Chandaria family and former Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe.

Julie Gichuru Pens A Sweet Message To Janet Mbugua On Her Birthday

The actress is in the country to check on her Human Needs Project, an initiative that seeks to empower young people in Kibera to get employability skills. She came across as sweet, humble and a super busy woman.

Despite being a mother of five and always on the plane, she still finds time to come to Kiberat to help the needy. The project has a town centre with an ICT school and a burgeoning community of learners, teachers and supporters. Millions of shillings were raised yesterday to support her cause.

This is the selfie moment I am talking about:

Don’t they look so good together?

‘Lady Justice Njoki Ndungu, Refused To ‘Shoot An Elephant’,’ Julie Gichuru Pens Heartwarming Message To Supreme Court Judge

Supreme Court Judge, Njoki Ndungu together with Jackton Ojwang are the only Supreme Court Judges who dissented when four others judges including Chief Justice David Maraga agreed with the nullification of Uhuru Kenyatta’s win during the hearing of August 8th presidential petition filed by the opposition party leaders.

After reading out her ruling, Njoki Sussana Ndungu got diverse reactions that ranged from love to hate. Depending on which side of the political divide one came from.

The former Citizen TV anchor Julie Gichuru recently expressed admiration for Njoki Ndungu. She however didn’t base her praise on Njoki’s controversial judgement but rather other things like how Njoki champions women’s rights when she was still a nominated MP.

Below is what she wrote;

“You are my HERO alongside our fellow Loreto sister Wangari Maathai.
I watched you passionately work on the Sexual Offences Bill then present it to a hostile parliament that vowed to shoot down any attempt to protect women. You lobbied tirelessly & against all odds saw the passage of the Sexual Offences Act 2006, an Act that now provides a firm foundation for the protection of women, children & men. Resolute, determined, knowledgeable, principled & purposeful, you MADE A DIFFERENCE.

During the post election mayhem of 2007/2008 I struggled to find Voices of Reason amidst the threatening bray of loud extremists. You spoke up for peace & justice when many others were fearful. You took a NOBLE STAND FOR KENYA.

I watched you work diligently on the Constitution of Kenya Review Commission, making time to inform & educate Kenyans on the content of the draft. When you were concerned that processes were not being followed in the Commission you spoke out, UNBOWED BY PRESSURE & INFLUENCE.
You have delivered the most thorough, detailed & researched dissenting opinion in the Supreme Court ruling on the 2017 General Election. UNBOWED, you have spoken hard truths, for that you are now under fire from some quarters. Such is life.

George Orwell wrote a fascinating essay, Shooting an Elephant. As a young officer in Burma, he was notified of an elephant that wandered into the village. A growing, braying mob that resented him goaded him on, demanding that he shoot the elephant. He knew it was scared, it had caused damage, agitated when it first wandered into the village but now the majestic animal was calm. He felt strongly that the right thing to do was to lead it safely, unharmed, out of the village. But this was not popular with the loud extreme voices of the mob. So, what was he to do?
You, Lady Justice Njoki Ndungu, refused to ‘shoot an elephant’. Most importantly, you took the time, effort & care to give the situation the time, effort & seriousness that it deserved. I salute you!

You are an exemplar. Stand tall as the winds blow. Your foundations are strong, woman of purpose, substance & grace. Stand tall knowing that there are so many more standing with you!”

However the post brought about mixed reactions from readers;

charlesodhiambo98: You people are milking Kenya dry.. ‘n very soon we shall have our say

dennisthemenace254: @charlesodhiambo98 who are you talking about?

jemimadnjenga: May God keep her safe as she continues to serve in this generation

sarahmwebia: I love njoki Ndungu and salute her

juliegichuru: @charlesodhiambo98 who is ‘You people’? Which milk of yours have I touched? I grew up on a farm and my grandmother taught me to milk our cows. It is a lesson I have never forgotten. I have never milked another persons cows. It makes sense to invest time, effort, capital and sweat in your cows, as you will milk yours, not someone else’s. Speaking of milk. I also breastfed all my children for up to 2 years (some longer). The only milk I have had from others was when I attended a government school for two years and we were given Nyayo milk at the end of the day. Hii maziwa yako ni gani?

juliegichuru: Thank you for all the heartwarming comments. Loreto women are cut from a cloth of velvet titanium, strong as heck but with a touch of velvet. Voices of grace warm our spirits 🙏

ezzomj: I also respected her n still do stare n admire in awe of her achievements til juzi’s judgement..now unlike these other guys who hate her for nothing cz of her dissenting judgement, I just feel she spent so much time attacking the other judges instead of dealing with the motion at hand..it was honestly disappointing saana

joseend: @ezzomj: That is what a dissenting opinion is supposed to do, show why you disagree with the others. She was just doing her job. Same way the majority were doing their job despite what some quarters may say.

‘I Am A Terrible Cook’, Confesses Julie Gichuru

Cooking, being a good wife, taking care of children, sex education were some of the traditional gender roles assigned to women back in the days of our grand parents.

But things have changed. Women nowadays concentrate on their careers and only a few who come from communities that still practice old traditions are the ones still lagging behind. Continue reading “‘I Am A Terrible Cook’, Confesses Julie Gichuru”
