“I’d Marry Maina, Larry And Shaffie If Possible”, Says Classic105 Presenter Halima

For  avid Classic 105 listeners, I am sure that you have heard the new sultry voice in town during the Mid-morning show. The bubbly character behind the voice is one tall glass of beauty, Halima Khamis. In a bid to dissect her (not literally), I managed to sneak in between her studio session to ask her a few questions just to find out more about her. Here is what the conversation was like:

1. A brief description of who you are and what you do. 

H. I’m actually a very fun person if I may say so myself…although you can never tell by first looking at me..very open minded too but conservative in some areas of life!

2. Hobbies, dislikes

H. hmmm…I love meeting new people, love reading ..I’m an adventurous person basically.

3.What are the Top five characters a potential boyfriend must possess? 

H. After 30 we don’t make lists for potential boyfriends! We become practical. A potential man for me should and must be thoughtful and hardworking…..and tall!

4. If you were to be famous for one reason what would it be and why?

H. I would love to be famous for playing the piano…something I have never learnt to play but think it’s the most awesome music invention ever!

5. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be? why? 

H.  I’d change nothing about the way I was raised. I turned out just fine.

6. What is your opinion on Friends with benefits? would you agree to such an arrangement?  If no /yes state reasons

H. Friends with benefits is very practical. It’s actually what’s going on in marriages today. You marry a man because he is rich and will provide. He marries you because you are a home maker..bear him kids and hopefully always good in bed….story ya love…love is just a bonus if it ever exists.

7. Are you dating? If yes name at least three similarities between you and your partner. If not, what would the similarities be? 

H. No, not dating…I’d just want someone who believes in the simplicity that life can be…and open minded like me.

8. If you were to pick between Maina Kageni, Shaffie Weru and Larry Asego .. who would you marry? Who would you shoot? And who would you friendzone? 

H. (Laughs) I think I’ll be polyandrous…I’d marry all three men because I bet they each have different things to offer!

South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) contributing editor was  mugged in full view of the cameras.

The SABC was preparing to do a live broadcast from outside the Milpark Hospital where the President of Zambia has been hospitalised, when the two men approached him just as he was about to go on air.

In the footage, the culprits don’t seem to realise that  they were being filmed despite standing directly in the crew’s spotlight.
