Allan Aaron, theamed US-based Kenyan Akorino gospel singer, has reportedly remarried after “abandoning his first wife and kids.”

Through a Facebook post, Aaron revealed he got married on January 2nd.

He however but did not reveal the identity of his new spouse or share her photos.

Recently, his ex wife Annie Shiku finally opened up about how he allegedly dumped her and their children after he left for the US.

She said Aaron cut communication with her barely three months after he landed in Boston.

The ‘Kiriro’ hitmaker was previously married to Ann Shiko and the two were blessed with four children, but is alleged that he abandoned his family a few months after he moved to the US to perform and minister the word of God.

“He started acting funny. He would not pick up my calls and whenever he did, he had very unkind words for me. After a while, there was no communication as he had blocked me,” she said.

She said he also stopped sending money, resulting in her struggling to raise school fees for their kids, rent, food, and other basic needs.

A year later, Aaron returned to the country without her knowledge and the two accidentally met at a funeral at Lang’ata Cemetery. After the burial, Aaron allegedly went to his parent’s home in Elburgon, Nakuru County.

“Together with my children, we waited and waited. He didn’t come. We saw him after two weeks when he came to pick up his belongings. He took his clothes and even the TV that our kids used to watch,” she recalled.

Shiko said her attempts to know what transpired were futile as Aaron would not listen to her even when church elders tried to intervene.

“I tried to beg him for forgiveness for things I could have done without knowing I was hurting him but all was in vain. Up to date, I don’t know the reason he left,” she said.

Shiko, who is also a musician, currently sells cars at a showroom along Kiambu Road.

She has revealed that  she is ready to remarry “if God sends me a suitor.”

Efforts to get a comment from Aaron proved futile with his phone going unanswered.

A Sneak Peek Into Tampa’s Infrastructure As The Kenya Airlift Student Departs For Alabama

BY BOB MWITI

My grandpa grew up in the village like most octogenarians of his “nthuki,” a Greek word meaning age group.

He herded goats and cattle combined with subsistence agriculture. Well, that was the life in the village those days, when “Mwini” would set out to distant places to see the girlfriend they had met in dancing events. There were no phones.

Years later, grandpa would visit me in Tampa, Florida. To his amusement, while he had overseen tremendous growth in Kenya over time, the sight of roads built up over others mesmerized him.

Few years after he left the US, Kenya made a great stride forward with a concept of one such road; The Nairobi Expressway.

Undoubtedly, the road will be iconic when completed. More surprising to my grandfather was the fact that roads had no potholes, the traffic madness was missing, and there were no police officers by the roadside ‘secretly always picking something’ from touts and drivers.

Clearly, Tampa offered him a glimpse of the US road transport.

As I took Wilfred, our Kenya airlift student to Tampa International Airport enroute the University of Alabama in Huntsville, I offer you a peep into Florida’s road infrastructure and some view of the “The Big Guava” as the Tampa city is nicknamed.
