Me not sure what was happening i didn’t know what to do but look for my brothers. Out of the chaos someone grabbed my hand i turned and it was my dad he had come from home we didn’t live far he held my hand tight and told me we needed to find my brothers and go home.’

‘We did .. At home the pictures on TV were the scariest i’ve ever seen. Blood, tears, saddness, death.. My dad grabbed his pager left us at home and went to the bomb blast sight to help what he saw i cant explain … on TV and even in the estate i remember people screaming i remember darkness but i also remember how the darkness brought us together as a nation. Pamoja we stand.. Did you lose someone? Scream their name out loud because we will never forget them. #ISurvived98’.

Fans Wish Tallia Oyando A Happy Birthday

Radio personality Tallia Oyando turned a year older on 26th February. Friends, family and fans took to social media to wish her a lovely born day.

The singer, TV and radio host has had a stellar career in the entertainment industry. From winning an Emmy Award to hosting shows on several TV and radio stations, Oyando has proven that she was truly born to be a star.

This Is How Embarrassing It Was When Nameless Met His Wife’s Parents

Having had a successful career, she decided to settle down and start a family over eight years ago. The gorgeous entertainer has previously admitted that she met her hubby at a night club.

“I saw @directorezy at a club I was dragged to. He walked by and my heart kinda followed him. We didn’t speak I only stayed the whole night staring at him. Later when I was leaving I bumped into him at the parking lot he asked if I was ok and needed a ride I said I was ok & that was all. Man when I got home he was all I thought of,” she revealed.

After a few meetings later, they moved in together.

Check out what had to tell her for her big day:

Super Sad! Grieving Tallia Oyando Pens Moving Tribute To Workmate Found Dead After Missing For Days

Tallia Oyando is mourning the death of her workmate and close pal at Homeboyz Radio. Tallia was the first celebrity to post a missing person alert for Natani Nyaga who was missing for three days from Thursday, November 10.

Tallia’s social media posts went viral. By Saturday 12, they got word that Natani was dead and he was at the mortuary in Mama Lucy Hospital.

This news was a shock for Natani’s workmates.

Tallia wrote a moving tribute in remembrance of her time with Natani.

“Dear Natani,
I don’t even know where to begin. I am so sorry this happened to you. You were the kindest, nicest person on the face of the planet. And I’m not saying that because you are gone. I’m saying it because its true. I wish i said this to your face. I hope you knew how much we cared, loved and valued you. You were probably the first person i saw when i came to work and the last when i rushed out. I can hear your voice in my head and i cant seem to get it out, you’re making me cry and i cant seem to stop. This has hit hard so hard. I have really questioned God i know i shouldn’t but why you?

I mean you had the kindest heart always helping other people. I never ever heard you complain. I never ever saw you sad. I found it so annoying how you would always be so happy asking questions always being so helpful. I kept telling Della “argh Natani is so annoying”. I mean who’s that nice? Now all i want to do is hug you ask you to annoy me and say thank you for all you’ve done. Eh this is hard. Who will help me at work. Who will keep giving me the wifi password. Who will take my pictures or silly videos. Who’s gonna sit at your desk. Who’s charger will i use? Natani this hurts so much. You didn’t deserve this.

Your future looked so bright. You were one of the good ones i know exactly where you are because your heart was pure. I will never forget you. And because i never said it enough. Thank you. I don’t know how we will all be able to get through the coming days at HBR without you. To your family, i am praying for you as i am praying for him.”

 

Tallia who is also known as the Night Nurse also posted text conversations with Natani.

This is how our days went.

Natani walks into the studio could you please take a picture with a winner?

Me: argh ok.
