Amani opens up on struggle to conceive

Amani never thought she would be a mum after struggling for so long to get pregnant.

 Cecilia Wairimu alias Amani is a mum to a two year old, and loves her journey.

For Mothers day 2022, the singer returned to social media to pen a sweet message recalling her difficult journey to motherhood.

She penned how she struggled to conceive, and God heard her prayers. She advised those struggling to ‘trust God’.

Happy Mothers day to all the mothers …Once upon a time I thought I would never be mum…but God…Yahweh made it happen… God is not a respector of persons.What he can do for one,he can do for a another.For those trusting God for the fruit of the womb,he is still performing miracles .He will do it for you,keep believing. Yahweh is a good God.
Today I also celebrate my mum,my mentor,my spiritual mum,my friend and so many other things.Mama I appreciate you,I love you.’

Cecilia miscarried back in 2019, and opened up about being disappointed below.

‘When I took this picture last year, I was pregnant but lost it. It hurt but, at that moment, I chose not to grumble or murmur or get angry. Though disappointed, I chose not to give up and lose faith,’ the singer said.

Amani pregnancy journey

After 10 months of trying, Amani told that she became pregnant.

‘I had conceived after failing to conceive for a while. So, I realized that my season had come and it was just a matter of time. I thanked God in advance and the following month I conceived again and this time the pregnancy was sustained,’ she added.

Amani however remains secretive about her child and has never shared the gender or a picture.

Most Kenyan diaspora to send cash gifts on Mothers day

Why not treat your mum to a cash gift on mothers day?

A new survey from leading online international money transfer service WorldRemit reveals how the estimated 3 million Kenyans living abroad celebrate their mums on Mother’s Day.

The just released WorldRemit survey of customers sending money to Kenya reveals:

  • When asked who they send money to, 66% of those that responded said they send money to their mums in Kenya.
  • When asked when they last met their mother, 44% of those who responded said they haven’t seen them for at least 2 years.
  • 99% of those who send money to their mothers celebrate Mother’s Day.
  • 80% of those who celebrate Mother’s Day do so by sending their mother money.
  • Of those respondents who send their mom money for Mother’s Day, 84% also give their mum a call and 50% also send her a gift.

Last year, the Kenyan diaspora sent home over $2.7 billion, making remittances one of the top forex earners for the country.

Sharon Kinyanjui, Head of East and Central Africa at WorldRemit, said: “Mother’s Day is an important time for 3 million Kenyans living abroad to show their mums that they’re thinking of them. Our online money transfer service makes it easier to send money to your mom this Mother’s Day. Customers can make transfers at any time from anywhere with just a few taps on their smartphones. We also deliver notifications to you and your mom when the money has been sent and received to help you stay connected at every stage of the money transfer journey.”

To celebrate Mother’s Day this year, WorldRemit is offering new customers zero fees on their first transfer if they use the code MDAYWR when making payment.

WorldRemit’s app and website make sending money home as easy as sending an instant message. Kenyans living in over 50 countries, including the USA, the UK and Canada, can send money in a few taps directly from their smartphones, without having to travel and pay expensive fees at a money transfer agent.

For recipients in Kenya, WorldRemit offers a variety of convenient ways to receive money, including mobile money, bank deposit, cash collection at over 700 locations across urban and rural areas of Kenya, and mobile airtime top-up.

Fun things to do with your mother for mother’s day!

Mothers day which happens to be on 12th May is just around the corner and most if not all the times, it catches us by surprise, Well not any more!

Now that I have reminded you that the day is near, you might be racking your brain what to surprise her with on this big day yes?

It might be easy to fall for the normal usual things that have been happening over the years, but we can try and make this year a little different?

Well you do not have to worry about that anymore,

Here is a list of some of the things the both of you could do on this day.

1. Take a mini vacation

Most of the times our mothers are always busy trying to make everything work in our homes.

Take her out for mini road-trip or vacation to let her relax and simply to make her feel special on that mini trip. It’s her day and she needs all the rest and relaxation she can get while at it.

Bahati and Diana Marua are definitely serving us couple goals in Dubai!

2. Book a family photo shoot

Who doesn’t like a photo shoot or a family picture? Well this might be your opportunity to get one.

Go for that fancy make-overed  photo-shoot you have been meaning or procrastinating for a while. This will create new memories for you and your mother.

3. Go see a movie

When old age kicks in, they tend to forget the little pleasures of life. Remind her how it feels like to have fun or to just enjoy their time.

For instance you could take her for a movie and just make sure she has the time of her life.

Young people watch movies in cinema

Poll: If Maina Kageni roasted maize in Muthurwa, would women date him?

4. Plan a picnic

A little relaxation for a mother goes a long way and a picnic to just cook and spoil her is a perfect idea to make this work.

Take her for that mini picnic lunch and just make sure that she has fun but above all she gets all the love and relaxation she will need.

5. Pamper Her

Take her out, treat her to a massage or a spa date, get her gifts, buy her roses, make her dress up and all that. Make it a little different for her and treat her like the queen that she is.
