‘Kenyan mothers let teen daughters dress inappropriately’  Man calls out parents

 

The fashion choices being embraced by female Kenyan teens was heavily debated on the Classic 105 morning conversation after one man castigated mothers for letting them dress provocatively.

He was of the opinion that Kenyan mothers never look at or question their daughters decision to wear some items,

‘What are we buying these girls? Are parents paying attention to what they buy? Their breasts and backsides are always displayed. How many times do you go to a club, see women only to find out later they are underage? 

He was also of the strong opinion that teen girls emulate how they mothers dress and behave towards men. So if a mother dresses provocatively, her daughter will pick up queues that she should also do the same.

‘These girls physique is deceiving, they look older and even when they are with their moms, people ask if they are sisters’.

This thinking elicited mixed reaction from Classic 105 fans who either called in or tweeted tagging us online.

A caller said

Maina don’t blame it on the single mothers and the kids too because the moment you give them money hujui atarudi kama amenunua nini. What we can do as parents is, the minute your children turn to teenagers have a sit down and have that conversation.

Another listener added that

We live in generation where kids are in the club more often than in the church. This has nothing to do with the parents, its the society. We need to stand together as parents and figure a way forward.”

Maina we live in a world where every negativity is blamed on single mothers, some have raised up good kids who are good role models to upcoming generation but some are a disgrace though

Parents are to blame here. They are soo busy doing nothing in social media themselves and by them giving kids smartphones, they want the kid to be occupied with it so as not to disturb them.

‘She lets me drive her Range Rover’ 21-year-old man brags about dating older woman

 

Men aren’t the only ones who date younger people, and the idea of a “cougar”, an older woman dating a younger man, has become a part of the public consciousness.

A young Kenyan man confessed his love for his cougar, that elicited sharp criticism from Classic 105 fans.

He admitted that

“I’m 21 years old and I’m dating a woman who is 45 she bought me a new car and the latest iPhone. Sometimes I get to drive her Range Rover. I live a very good life.” #MainaAndKingangi

The odds are high that some people are going to disagree with your choice in romantic partner no matter how perfect your relationship is. The young man made an effort to explain why he’s in love with her and not with her age.

Mwalimu King’ang’ surprisingly avoided making any comments and just grunted along whenever people responded.

Here are some reactions to his love story.

Wives are community property until they turn 40 – Man sensationally claims

 

 

A woman will never really settle down and be a wife until she turns 40 years old, was a confession that stunned Maina and King’ang’i during the Thursday morning conversation.

A guy on called in and said something incredible as we talked about office husbands. He said a woman is only committed to her husband once she hits forty. Once interests in her starts going down then she concentrates on you as her husband, but as long as there is still interest in her out there, she is never yours.

At times the pain will be unbearable – Robert Burale’s heartfelt message to Anerlisa (Exclusive)

Once she starts ageing, that is when she settles down to truly be committed to you. Before that guys you need to accept that she is never your alone.

She is a free agent, Mwalimu asked?

She can entertain attention elsewhere as long as it it there Maina said. So before you get to 40 years guys, does a man have to accept that she is not yours alone?

How true is that? And guys are you ready to accept that before 40, she is not yours alone?

PDA

Classic 105 fans seemed to agree with one saying ‘The age between 20’s and 40’s is the most active for a woman, kama hauna uwezo as a man utabaki hapo tuu. Some women when they hit forty is when they become more beautiful and that’s when they start hitting on younger men.’

Another said ‘bitter truth, for your information there is no woman who is yours alone, they operate when there is need, when she is yours use her’.

List Of 5 Concrete Reasons Why You Should Avoid Dating A Staunch Football Fan!

A male caller disagreed with this sentiment saying ‘They become hotter at 40, and this is the time when they look for young guys. So you find women this is the time they start life, because the man is down when it comes to bed matters. My wife is 37, so I’m not worried. What I’ve seen before is women at 40 used to approach me when I was younger, and they want me to do things. Yes Maina that is when they showing signs of kutongozana. This thing is bringing havoc to young men.’

Another caller said ‘From 40 is when they start kuiva. Sasa walewameiva at 40, hao ndio wanasumbua’.

Another man called and said ‘They approach us and tell us they are in love. I don’t know hwy they are doing this, anakuita my son I want to be with you, sasa they confuse us.

Black-married-couple-down-low

This seemed to be a resounding idea with more men admitting they are being ‘disturbed’ by women over 40.

Perhaps the shocker was a young mans confession saying at 21 he drives a Subaru. ‘She bought it and it is in my name. I’m 21 years old and I’m dating a woman who is 45 she bought me a new car and the latest iPhone. Sometimes I get to drive her Range Rover. I live a very good life.’

‘You’ll infect people in ushago’ Kenyans tell citizens fleeing Nairobi

 

You could unknowingly be taking the virus to people upcountry.

The reason why Italy is the hardest hit is because citizens disregarded instructions from the Government, and traveled countryside leading to a nationwide spread of Coronavirus.

Zari finally gets Maina Kageni’s advise about Diamond Platnumz

Now the same situation could very well end up the same way, according to Classic 105 fans who called in to persuade travelers to rethink their decisions.

The conversation with Maina Kageno on Wednesday was all about Kenyans fleeing the city, to go ushago because they think it’s safer there.

If we travel to mashamani where there is no exposure, we risk taking the disease there, but its difficult to convince Kenyans not to travel, Maina said.

How can Kenyans be convinced not to travel to ushago over coronavirus? asked Maina to which listeners responded with their thoughts below:

Bien Aime had a ‘good’ budget for his wedding to Chiki

A female caller said ‘I think there is something people need to understand those of us in Nairobi will risk if we go ushago, there is less risk in ushago and if we go we take the problem there,’

A man called in and said ‘tunaenda nyumbani ni lazima isemekane hakuna kutoka nje alafu utafanya nini? Watu waende nyumbani, ni kuzuri maisha ni mazuri huko, twende ushago hii maneneo ya corona ikisha turudi’.

Sharon ShanienTwo hearts/…Am staying here,I cant go home,lemme just be mindful.Who knows I might hav the virus or contract it on the way,coz we literally don know who’s +ve despite the 4 known cases. My fam back in shags am not comin! I need them safe

Willis Raburu encourages Willy Paul’s wife to finish him

Kelvin Mwangi..Kenyans got this believe Covid 19 is just around the city only.

Felix Agola(Mr President)..maina now the corona cases have been reported in Nairobi,those who have panicked have sought to travel to shagz where they might be a litte bit safe

Steven Ngugi..Maina if its true there are departures from Nairobi, the gava need to lockdown Nairobi, we can easily contain corona within Nairobi lakini wakiipeleka ushago it shall heat us bad once our foodbasket is affected

@AmozKipchirchir..Good morning Maina, mine is to just caution those pple traveling home from Nairobi & advice them to go self quarantine themselves for 14days. For those we’ll be running the city please let’s always take the outlined precautions.

‘Tulisema tusikimbie studio’ Mwalimu Kingang’i reacts to Kamba Kolona song

 

Yes the Kamba musicians have gone and done it again.

What am I talking about? One Kamba musician Danny Mboka has released a song about the Corona Virus. It is trending and got the attention of Maina and Kingangi on Friday March 6.

A tickled Maina played back the song several times to encourage Kingangi to respond wittly.

Mwalimu while shaking his head agreed Kamba’s remain undefeated.

‘It’s like buying land without a title deed’ Men on dating single mum’s of boys

 

Men avoid single mum’s raising boys, according to confessions made on Classic 105 Tuesday February 18.

The reasons range from not wanting the boy to inherit property, to him going to look for his biological parent later in life, to mwanaume proper hawezi excuses.

Maina’s morning conversation was on why a majority of men don’t like dating and marrying singe mums of boys, and the responses were swift.

Saumu Mbuvi hints she might be pregnant with second child

‘Why would I raise another mans son only for him to go look for his real father later in life?’ was one reason a man gave for avoiding single mum’s of boys.

Another said ‘dating mums of boys is like ‘buying land without a title deed, adding’ who does that?’

BLACK_FAMILY_0

Another added ‘Do you know he can even kill you when you argue with his mother?’ 

Maina how would you feel driving and maintaining a car you can’t drive? Another wrote on Twitter.

Maina wanted to know where this insecurity is coming from.

I was depressed and regretted dating Diamond – Tanasha reveals

A man said ‘its genetically wired in all male species, look at Lions for instance it’s just insecurity.’

Another man also called in with an analogy that ‘Who ever said that water in a toilet cant cook tea? We grew up knowing that and the same way we have learnt that if you marry a single mum of boys is trouble.’

Dear single mums, how does it make you feel to hear this asked Maina.

‘We will end up in a hole we can’t get out of’ Kenyans cry over corruption

Former Sports CS Rashid Echesa is in the spotlight over suspected fraudulent dealings, however, details are still scant.

Echesa was arrested on Thursday and taken to the DCI Headquarters located in Kiambu Road.

His vehicles have also been impounded including a Range Rover.

He is facing charges over fake tender firearm deal amounting to Sh39 billion.

This case seemed to accelerate anger Kenyans have towards the handling of corruption cases.

Classic 105’s Maina and Kingangi opened up discussion about corruption frankly asking Kenyans:

we are talking about corruption, the monster , and if you are a parent with a child, when you think about your child when they are 18, what kind of a country will they inherit? they will blame you parents, no one else, coz what we are doing right now we are eating their future,

Hizi cases tumeona hazitaisha (these corruption cases don’t seem to be ending) , Mwalimu chimed in with Maina adding that ‘we should investigate, arrest and remove from office immediately. Are you guys worried, or do we adapt to it and become like Nigeria, coz Nigeria is just a mess or are we already there? 

Maina even added his experience last Christmas in Rwanda, where corruption is non existent.

I met a policeman there in Rwanda over Christmas, and I asked him if I give you 100k will you take it? The cop told me no, why should I, did I wok for it?

Unbelievable right? Phone lines were opened up for Classic listeners to give their opinions. They aired their frustration at what they call a system that doesn’t work.

@karanjahpn_..
and convicting laws because they know they will be the first to face the noose..The system has been curved to rig bright minds out of it and let garbage flourish. Even in churches. There’s need a clean from top to bottom. Not the other way round.

Unfortunately DCI strategy is reversed: i.e arrest, remove, investigate.

My nieces call me to buy them food because their parents are lazy

 

 

Are you being financially exploited by your family members, who sit back and expect you to foot all their bills?

This is the nasty experience of one Kenyan woman who painfully narrated to Maina Kageni how she pays bills for her siblings who are too lazy to work.

‘He gets too cosy with women’ Bahati’s reason for beef with Peter Blessing

She adds that the reason for bankrolling her siblings families is because of guilt.

She feels guilty if she neglects her nieces and nephews’ financial needs yet their parents couldn’t be bothered to work.

‘It reaches a point nobody is paying school fees, and when I say no the kids call me telling me auntie sijaenda shule, I am educating 3 children, and my sister used to work but now she is not working, she just sits in the house, and I pay rent for her,’

This abuse in the hands of her family has seen her own children chased away from school for lack of fees.

‘I’m a single parent and my daughter was today left by the school bus, and I have other  because I haven’t paid school fees yet I also pay for others. My child is suffering because of this’

Her generosity is abused to the extent that her her siblings lie about looking for work

‘I ask her her plans for life and she says I don’t know she will look for a job even if its a househelp job, then in two three days she calls back saying they don’t have food, and her children are hungry. I see texts then I start thinking about the small children then I buy food, Maina even in my house when we don’t have food, I try saying no but it’s not working, I’m so heart broken,’

Ommy Dimpoz – I lost 30 kgs after I was poisoned

Trying to hold back tears, the woman also added that pressure from her mother doesn’t help the situation

‘the painful part is the children who come back to me saying they have not eaten. Surely will you sit back and watch them, my mother calls me and tells me it’s my responsibility, it haunts me it pains me, it’s so hard maina,,

Why do men have such a tight bond with their mothers? Maina asks

Maina and King’ang’i had an interesting conversation about mothers yesterday. The topic was influenced by the news that Gladys Shollei had been accused of kicking out ex-husband Sam Shollei’s 90-year-old mother from their up-country home.

gladys shollei
gladys shollei

This according to court documents. This elicited two questions from Maina to men; 1. What is the one line that a woman can’t cross that would kill the relationship? 2. Why do you find it so hard to cut the umbilical cord from your mother?

King’ang’i had his own thoughts saying, “Rule number one, a man’s mother is more important than even the cars and the money. A man’s mother comes number one.”

Some of the comments from listeners are below;

Maina should stop dreaming. Your mother is number 1. The other woman you are living with is a tamed snake. Hakuna mwanaume anawezafanyia mwanamke vile mwanamke anwaezafanyia mwanume. How can you chase a 90-year-old woman from her son’s home. Just lose a little money, these women leave you – A man.

Joke with my mother and you will know the colour code of a livewire – A man

I believe some people are confused by women. They are multipliers. If they don’t like women they should leave them alone – A man.

I haven’t seen my mother for 10 years because of my wife – Man tells Maina

Maina drop this topic right now. We get it. That former caller amekaliwa chapati – A man

The guy who spoke last, he spoke well. Imagine if someone called his mother a snake? I value mothers because they give you blessings. Me and my mother-in-law we get along very well. It’s up to us as women to treat them the way we would like to be treated well. Treat them with respect and they will give you back. My husband respects me very much – A smart woman said.

Mike Mondo told how bad Kenyan men gossip

Mike Mondo who has been standing in for Maina Kageni this past week has had some fascinating topics the whole week.

Today the affable presenter followed up on the topic of gossiping among women in chamas.

Are chamas for women just for mushene? Mike Mondo asks

The reports from some callers yesterday was that men were actually bigger gossips than most women, something that shocked and astounded Mike.

Mike put the thesis to the test and asked callers whether men were actually worse gossips than men.  Some of the anwers are below;

Si ututetee. Mimi nimekubali. Kwa lugha yetu inaitwa mehe mehe! Mushene tukonayo mingi-A man told Mike.

Men do gossip. They’ll gossip to your friends and colleagues about yourself. We have women in trousers-A woman told the presenter.

Gossip is good. When I kosana with my boyfriend, I give him a bit of gossip and we get back together-A woman narrated.

I am so disappointed that men are actually such gossipers-A man complained.

Wanaume wamezidi. Especially those ones who work at night. They spend their time during the day gossipping. Me I don’t like that behaviour and I try and avoid it-man

These ladies have started the new year with more problems. Tell them we will keep on gossiping. These women don’t want to get married and so their children see the way their single mothers gossip all day, then they become like that-Man said.

Are chamas for women just for mushene? Mike Mondo asks

Mike Mondo, who has been standing in for Maina Kageni in the morning, had an interesting topic this morning. The sultry-voiced host spoke about what women normally do at the chamas they attend.

Mike referenced a conversation he had yesterday with a woman who said that the chamas are normally more about the mushene (gossip) than for business interests that they were created for. Mike on his part said that he and his boys chama meetings are normally business-focused and then when they are done, they can go for a drink later on.

Why are men leaving wives for their mistresses? Mike Mondo asks

The presenter then opened up the topic to the listening audience. Some of those comments are below;

One time I missed and I was the topic of discussion. I was a single mother and I had failed to pay on time. The other women who were married asked how I could afford to drive and I couldn’t pay on time. Us ladies we are our own worst enemies – A lady said.

Chamas are for mushene – A lady said.

You men are worse at gossip. My husband and his friends when they do their chamas they gossip more than women – A lady told Mike.

When you talk about mushene even men are doing the same thing, not only women – A man said.

Chamas are just for gossip. The break-up in those meetings is 50/50 for mushene and business – A woman told Mike.

Long time ago when women had not been empowered they could meet and do mushene. Now it is a different ball-game. I am a treasurer at a chama for women and they do their business very professionally. The only caveat is when they are not sexually satisfied, that is what they talk about – A man told Mike.

Men are just as bad as women in the gossip section. They are also meeting to talk about others – A lady said.

I got a back-up after my hubby cheated on me for 10 years-Maina told

Today, the morning conversation touched on relationships between men and women. Maina asked whether a recent report that claimed 50% of ladies have a back-up partner in mind just in case they break up or have issues with their relationships.

King’ang’i contributed by hilariously quipping that those men who were back-ups were the super subs, saying, ‘A guy is doing warm-ups on the touchline waiting for the right time.’

A list of sneaky ways girls save their clande’s phone number

One woman regaled Maina with a story about her own life, telling the presenter that she had had to get her own back-up after her husband relentlessly cheated on her during their 10-year marriage. She said,

‘These people(men) are bad. For all the years I have been together, I always catch him(my husband) red-handed. Recently I nearly contemplated suicide. But I got a back-up and I feel good. He is plan B and he knows I am Plan B. I almost want to call my husband’s clandes to call my man more so that I can get time with my back-up.’

The presenter opened the floor to the gallery. Some of the comments are below;

I am told if she(wife) doesn’t comment on your post on social media, then her back-up man is a mutual friend-A man told Maina.

Stima ikipotea, lazima uwe na generator-A woman told Maina.

I have like 3 back-ups for about 7 years. I need them when things in the house are not working. We don’t do anything physical-woman.

In everything you do in this life, you must have a back-up just like you have a side-hustle in case you lose your job. My husband doesn’t even know-A woman said.

‘I’ve Had Three ABORTIONS With A MARRIED Man I’ve Dated For 3 Years And I Still Love Him’ Confesses a Kenyan Clande (AUDIO)

Without a backup in life as a woman, you are done-A woman told Mr. Kageni.

The bottom line is that these days no one is faithful-A man said.

Backup is very necessary. I have had a backup since 2013. These men started it. You get a man to lean on or cry on. If your man cheats on you, I don’t feel it anymore. I don’t feel bad about it-A woman admitted.

A woman cheats emotionally while a man cheats for the physical-A man added.

He paid for my university but I still dumped him-Woman proudly tells Maina

Maina Kageni had a question for men today? He wanted to know why many men took offence to a man paying for their women to go to university or get their Masters?

The man asked? ‘Why do men have a problem paying for a woman’s education and then they leave? It is just university. When men pay your fees. You are intimidated by a learned woman. Who told you she would leave?’

You’re wasting time with a man who won’t marry you  – Maina 

But King’ang’i was having none of it and went ahead to resolutely defend the Kenyan men’s honour. He said,

‘A man pays for a woman then she leaves. That is the most ungrateful thing I have ever heard. He pays for her university and even dowry. It is very bad. That is using someone. Ladies’ fees should be paid by her parents. She leaves you with matharau. We should see statements from accounts departments for who is paying the Masters program for them.’

One caller responded to the conversation saying that she had gained a lot from the man she was seeing, saying,

‘Why are you so angry. A car and a home you can repossess but a degree you can’t take back. He bought 2 cars for me. I told him to pay for my degree, which he did. He paid for my tuition and afterward I left after 6 years. Stop complaining and he also got something from me. That man is a stepping stone.’

Some of the responses from other listeners are below;

What do you mean they don’t owe you anything. They do-A male listener retorted.

I don’t pay even for my wife. What she has is enough-A man said.

I take care of a cow, then after all those years, someone else comes to take the milk. Are you the government of today. You educate someone and then they tell you that you are not of my class-Wakanai told Maina.

You are the true doctor of love! Maina tells Fred Obachi Machoka about wife

I will only pay for my children-A man told Mr. Kageni.

The worst mistake you will make is investing in a woman’s education-A smart man told Mr. Kageni.

I want to challenge these men. It doesn’t mean that because you educated me, I owe you. There is no way you can upgrade a woman without you upgrading yourself-man.

Maina Kageni’s kind words for new Safaricom CEO after harsh criticism by some

Maina Kageni and King’ang’i had an interesting conversation today with many topics covered by the two. One of them was about the way many Kenyans are broke at this time of the month, especially after the many holidays’s that the country has had this month.

Maina Kageni responds to those curious about his dad (exclusive)

King’ang’i even wondered, ‘You get so broke until you wonder whether you are supposed to be a lesson to others about brokeness. Unasota mpaka mende zinakuuliza whats up. Unasota mpaka unakula mandazi kwa gazeti.’

Kingangi
King’ang’i

The topic that touched Maina’s heart concerned the new Safaricom CEO, Peter Ndegwa. He was disturbed that some Kenyans had criticised the hiring of Ndegwa.

One caller explained that Kenyans may be worried that the new CEO might bring in nepotism and cronysim into the company because of his ethnicity. ‘Typical Kenyans. What Kenyans don’t understand is that the CEO cannot make decisions without consulting the management. Kenyans thought that he will connect his people because he was the CEO. That isn’t true.’

Peter Ndegwa
Peter Ndegwa

But Maina was firmly in his corner and had a few choice words for Ndegwa’s critics while also delivering a heartfelt speech for the new hire. ‘How we all became experts in his management style was not great. Why isn’t he in government? I wish him well. Do great things as you start your tenure.’ the affable host said.

I was called ni**a! Maina speaks about the dreadful racism he faced in the U.K

Maina Kageni has lived a life that would make for a great autobiographical movie. The man who is Kenya’s top radio personality recently spoke with Mwalimu King’ang’i concerning the issue of racism and revealed aspects of his life while in the U.K.

They spoke about Romelu Lukaku who has been the subject of racial abuse in Italy.A commentator called Luciano Passirani, 80, was slammed for his ill-judged comments on TopCalcio24 where he said the only way to stop the Belgian strike, ‘Was to throw 10 bananas at him’.

Station director Fabio Ravezzani quickly apologised live on air, and Passirani was shown the door soon after. He has since attempted to clear his name and set the record straight, revealing that he has struggled to sleep and eat following the incident and stressed that his multi-cultural background means he can not be deemed a racist.

Maina then expressed what he would do were he to be in such a position. He told King’ang’i;

I would have killed someone if I was there. I don’t understand how black footballers play in Italy. You know that they believe that all black people are monkeys.

Maina then recalled his experiences while in the U.K, saying, ”When you are in their place(country), I have been called ni**a many times and there is nothing you can do.’

I have been called ni**a by my mzungu bosses and you need the job you are going nowhere. You can do nothing, you need the job.

The ultimatums Kenyan women have given ‘lazy’ spouses

 

Women have revealed their thoughts on unemployed spouses and it’s pretty harsh.

Mwalimu Kingangi on Friday started a very interesting conversation about role responsiblibites in terms of money, noting that ‘a woman will rememeber the first time she gave you 50 bob.’

lazy

He was upset that many wives have been bragging about paying bills and outing men who are unemployed. He figured that women are not understanding that unemployment is a temporary situation, and this men should be respected.

Mwalimu said

You will never hear a man say how he paid bills but when a woman does pay bills for a man, she will announce it to the world, t will be front page news, you are telling the entire world how you are helping your husband, why do women have to announce. Do you know you would rather take money from a shylock than ask a wife for money. 

So Maina sought to know from ladies: why are you like that? Is it that you feel unappreciated, is it that you feel that you do so much for this man and it’s not appreciated?

Let’s have this chat ladies, and be honest. Women opened up with all sorts of accusation you need to read below:

lazy-black-man

Woman caller: God did not say women should provide and that is why we complain, we are not bragging, she is saying you are just another bugger, if you are useless man one day you shall be called bugger

Black-married-couple-down-low

Another woman concurred noting that

we are living with Kenyan men that are bums, we are paying all bills and they they have nothing to say because they are doing nothing, why should I be paying his bills? I have a man I supported for ten years. I left the bugger,  I  took him to school I paid his fees, I paid the mortgage and all he does is wear a nice suit, buy nyama choma, and entertainment friends, what will he say he did for his family? Nothing!!!

Dear Classic fam, are these women being petty or are their grievances justified? Drop us your comments.
