A court ruling by the Environment and Land Court in Nyeri declaring that married women are entitled to inherit land from their fathers, has elicited mixed reactions.
The ruling made by Justice Lucy Waithaka asserted that married women should not be excluded during the sharing of their fathers land, given that they are entitled to their fathers estate contrary to customary laws.
Well it now seems like he has acquired a new title because according to his listeners Maina Kageni can make a good pastor.
Here is the reason according to a fan of Classic 105
“Maina I think you can make a good pastor. This is because you like telling our women what they want to hear rather than telling them the plain truth no matter how painful.
Women trust you so much that is why they call your show every morning crying about how bad their men are, they love you because you behave like a pastor because in the eyes of a pastor no man is good enough.
The way you hate us makes us wonder what we did wrong. How do you even get to sleep at night by kutuingilia? The truth remains that our women love being told all these lovely things and that is exactly what you do with them Maina .”
Nyandarua teenager Antony Muchori is thanking radio king Maina Kageni for helping him complete his high school studies and being supportive.
The Nyahururu High School alumnus, who scored a plain B (66 points) in last year’s KCSE exam, told Word Is life hasn’t been easy, but he thanks Maina for lifting his soul.
“Maina is a fatherly figure, humble and down-to-earth. He doesn’t like publicity and is a kind-hearted man. Many think he’s a snob but once you approach him, you’ll be surprised by his humbleness,”Antony, 19, said.
After scoring 378 in KCPE, Antony was called to join Mang’u High School. He was unable to join the school because his parents could not afford the school fees.
“I joined form one at Keruguyo Boys in 2014 but left the school in third term because I owed the institution a lot of money. In 2015, I moved to a private school and my parents really struggled to pay my school fees,” he said.
“I also depended on bursary funds and would beg politicians to pay my school fees. At the end of form two, I left the school.”
HOW HE MET MAINA
Things became unbearable in 2016, and he was forced to stay at home the whole year. In 2017, a Good Samaritan, former Kipipiri MP Samuel Gichigi, came to his rescue, paying part of his form three school fees at Nyahururu High School.
The school’s principal, Andrew Karimi, was lenient and never him sent away for school fees both in form three third term and form four first term.
“Come second term 2018, I had arrears of Sh38k, which I was supposed to pay before sitting the main exam. With no one to help, I had given up and at one point, I told myself that it would be better if I study from home and show up at school just to sit for KCSE,” Antony said.
He thought about it for long and decided to travel to Juja, where his aunt stays, to try to reach out to his mentors to help him achieve his dream.
“I remember it was on a Tuesday morning early May when I left my aunt’s house at 3am, just to get to Nairobi in time and meet Maina Kageni before he left the studio,”Antony said.
“I visited him uninvited and immediately after his show, I followed him downstairs and narrated to him my story. He asked me details about my county government and promised to talk to them so they could help,” Antony said.
At the end of the day, no one communicated, so he went back the following day on Thursday and Maina promised him again that this time round, someone from the senator’s office would communicate before night fell. Still, he got no response.
The ambitious teenager said on the following Friday, he came fully dressed in school uniform and arrived early before Maina got into studio.
“I waited for him at the reception and when he saw me again, he knew I was serious,” Antony said.
“This was my third day visiting his workplace in a week and this time, he spared some time to go through my report forms. He promised to help the following Monday if no one from the county’s office reached out to me.”
The weekend passed and no one had reached out to him and he was ready to sell his mobile phone, the only asset he had, just to go back to school.
“I wanted to sell it at Sh7k so I could take some amount to school and be in class and revise for the exams,” he said.
On Monday, Antony left Juja fully prepared for school. It was raining heavily and upon reaching Maina’s workplace, the presenter was shocked to see him around.
‘”Kijana hujarudi shule?” Maina asked me. I told him no one contacted me and I just wanted to let him know I was going to sell my phone and would be unreachable,’he said.
“But he told me, ‘Don’t do that’. He asked me to wait for him at the reception as he parked, and after a few minutes, he came and gave me Sh38k cash. He told me to go to the bank and go to school and bring the receipt when school closes.”
Adding: “I was so emotional I cried. Maina calmed me down and told me to go and study hard.”
That same Monday before he went back to school, the governor called him to his office and paid the third-term school fees.
“He gave me a cheque of Sh34k. I informed Maina about it and he was happy,” he said.
From there, Maina kept tabs with him and whenever he came back for midterm or after closing, he would meet him and show him his report cards. “He was always impressed and encouraged me to work hard,” Antony said.
He said he was motivated and Maina is going to pay his college school fees (graphic design course) before he joins university in September.
Antony, who is now a trained photographer, says the tough challenges he has gone through in the hands of the administration have inspired him to join politics. Come 2022, he will vie for Kipipiri parliamentary seat in his constituency.
“I want to represent my people so that no needy student goes through what I went through. I will ensure the government is keen on CDF disbursements and fights poverty through educating my constituents,” he said.
Its now obvious why Maina is yet to come to terms with the death of the legend.Morning Ingram Maina says
You came to Kenya, came onto my show with your beautiful wife Debra, who told me that she couldn’t stand your singing all over the house!!! Can’t win ’em all, can you? 🤣🤣🤣 I’m sad that you’re gone, mostly because YOU WERE THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE!!! But you made my little world a lot better… and a whole lot bigger…”
It is a sad day for Maina Kageni as he mourns legendary artiste James Edward Ingram.
Maina Kageni has taken to social media to mourn Ingram, terming this as one of his greatest loss in recent times.
“James Edward Ingram….. what a VOICE!!! What a songwriter!! You told me that a songwriter with an ear for a killer melody was a songwriter after your own heart…. aaahhh…. you’re gone…. couples met through your music as “Party Animals”, broke up when you told them that “There’s No Easy Way (To Break Somebody’s Heart)”, got back together when you and Linda Ronstadt were looking for somebody “Somewhere Out There”… they fell in love again when you promised them that they’d be together “Forever More”…. they got married to your music… they promised ” One Hundred Ways” to love each other… You said to me that your biggest regret was never working with Babyface…. Only God knows why…. that would have been too much to take!!!!!!!”
“But you worked with the best (Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Linda Ronstadt, Michael McDonald)…. You had a voice that resonated through generations because, forget Reggae for now, but because NOBODY CAN STOP A GREAT SONGWRITER!!! You came to Kenya, came onto my show with your beautiful wife Debra, who told me that she couldn’t stand your singing all over the house!!! Can’t win ’em all, can you? 🤣🤣🤣 I’m sad that you’re gone, mostly because YOU WERE THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE!!! But you made my little world a lot better… and a whole lot bigger…”
“Thank you, Mr Ingram… “I Don’t Have The Heart” to say goodbye…… but I pray that you get the just reward your gift gave us….. you trusted your art, your voice and YOURSELF!!! I trust that you’ll be good… after all, like you sang, “Yah Mo Be There”!!!!!! Rest well, JAMES INGRAM…. rest well…. and THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC!!!!!!!!! #RIPJamesIngram#ThankYouForTheMusic#RIP”
During the Maina and King’ang’i ishow n the morning, a woman caught many by surprise after confidently stating that her man has never cheated.
At a time when many men are cheating and blaming the devil for their behaviour, this seems pretty far fetched.
Declaring her unwavering trust in her man, she said
“I have a perfect man in my life ,he has never cheated on me,he always comes home by 9pm, whenever I want to drink he buys drinks come we drink together, whatever I want he gives it to me.
He has never cheated on me,I differ with women on that,he has never never cheated on me, we have been together, I have never found any clue that he is cheating on me.”
A male caller was in support of the lady stating that she is one in a million
“That lady apewe kila kitu anataka duniani hadi hizi tinga tinga zinabomoa buildings Nairobi, she is one in a million.”
“The moment that woman realizes that her husband is not perfect and that he is just a hypocrite atalilia kwa choo, there is no perfect man, they are all brothers with the same character.
“I have heard that woman saying that her husband is perfect, I was in her shoes before and I never imagined that he can never cheat. not even a single day.
I used to proudly say before my friends that my man can never cheat only to find out that he had been cheating, on flash backing I realized he might have started sleeping around even before our wedding.When I found that he had been cheating it hit me so hard I have never fully recovered, yet we had been married for 10 years
The day that woman finds out her husband is cheating on her, she might even die, I used to hear other people talking about their spouses cheating on them and was like how can that even happen?
I thought that my man was getting all he needed from me thus him cheating had never crossed my mind but it was all a lie. Looking back I realized that I had been cheating myself even before I said I do?”
Here’s her advice to her fellow women,
“It’s good to trust but put some percentage of mistrust such that if you find out he is cheating, you won’t collapse and die.”
On being asked what she does with the money, she says
“The money might sound so tempting but believe me there is nothing you can do with it Inapotea tu,I have never slept with any of them they are not my type and they have never requested me to sleep with them
I have nothing tangible I have done with the money sina shamba,nyumba nothing.”
Wanawake hawana siri is a common phrase used by men when asked why they don’t confide in their women, opting to die with their secrets.
Maina Kageni was left stunned when a female confessed how she shared her bedroom fantasies with another man. She defended herself by stating that no matter how much effort she tries to put to encourage her husband, it’s pointless.
“I am an orphan and my husband of 8 years is a very quiet man, whenever I have a problem I cannot even share it with him. Sometimes we go through very hard issues I’d want to share with him but he is always silent mpaka you cannot know if he does not care about you ama ni pesa hana.”
“Sometime back I had pain in my abdomen but even after I shared with him he just went quiet. There is this male friend of mine he has taken care of me so much till it got to a point I was comfortable sharing my secrets with him.
He is usually very concerned you will find him asking if I am ok or whether I have visited a doctor. I ask my husband anything and he is just quiet, it reached a point where I shared about my se3ual fantasies with this man.
This is because I talk to my husband about my fantasies and he does nothing but when I visited this guy he did it so well, just the way I have always desired.”
The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education results are out and Kenyans can’t keep calm, with many reminiscing how their parents reacted when they received the news back in the day.
During the Morning show on Classic 105 fans gave heartbreaking stories of how their parents termed them a disappointment just because they ‘failed’ something which haunts some of them up to date.
What caught our attention is the narration below by a man from Kisii
” I am a livestock keeper because I did not impress my dad. He was very bitter with my KCSE results in 2002. He told me that I had wasted four year’s worth of school fees and that I did not know what I had gone to do in school.
I did not go beyond form four so he bluntly told me that I should just keep livestock. The livestock sustains my life , looking back at my life now maybe I would have wasted a lot of time but I am a proud farmer.
I am actually the most respected farmer in our area.”
“Siwezi share bibi yangu na mtu, hata kwa dawa. It’s like sharing a tooth brush with a neighbor over my dead body.”
Another fan says
“Sadly most of the relationships are open unaware by either of the party because when some issues are not addressed both of them opt to sort it elsewhere.
Be worried when your partner stops complaining of matters that were of concern.”
Just when you think you have heard enough another female fan says
“I can relate to that. My friend’s husband brings his mpango wa kando in to the house, my friend had to adjust . Nowadays the mpango wa kando even comes to baby sit her kids and she has her own room in that house.”
