Churchill Raw host MC Jessy has opened up on being orphaned at a young age.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central, Jessy, whose real name is Jasper Muthomi narrated how he lost his mother on the eve of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations.

“My father passed on a long time ago, I never lived with him for long. I saw him three times in my life” he said,

Losing mum

“I grew up with my mum after my father passed on, attending Embu County School. During the KCPE rehearsals my mother passed on.

“KCPE exams were on Tuesday my mum passed on that Monday. I sat for exams then that Friday I went to Meru and we buried her on Saturday. KCPE for me was a sad time,” he narrated.

Lack of fees

Coming from a humble background, Jessy was forced to stay at his grandparent’s home in Meru as there was no one else to take care of him.

According to the winner of the ‘Best Host in a TV Show’ and ‘Best TV Show’ (Churchill Raw) at the 2018 Kalasha Awards, despite passing the exams, he had to stay at home as he lacked fees.

“After the burial, I started living with my grandparents. I passed my exams but I stayed home for one year after the results as I didn’t have anyone to take me to school.

“I use to farm tomatoes, sukumawiki, we would get a little money. And then I used to dry tobacco that was taken to Marsabit for sale,” he said.

Jessy’s aunt later paid school fees and Jessy was able to complete secondary school education at St Cyprian Boys.

Churchill

After high school, Jessy moved to Nairobi to pursue his acting dream, frequenting the Kenyan National Theatre for auditions.

During Churchill Show’s first season, Jessy failed to land a role despite auditioning for a year.

One day, he ran into Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki in the lavatory and the ensuing conversation landed him a job.

“I met Churchill in one of Carnivore’s toilets and engaged him. We bonded and he gave me a chance to perform in episode 36, season two.” he said.

‘Recovering from caesarian section isn’t a joke,’ Kambua says after giving birth

Published

Kambua

Gospel singer Kambua is looking gorgeous after giving birth.

The mother of one, has for the first time revealed that she gave birth through Caesarian section (Cs) though she didn’t give more details.

The Rauka show host also revealed that she’s still recovering from the surgery, saying it takes time for the scar to heal.

This is me thanking God that I can fit into one of my pre-preggers dresses🤣. My body has changed ALOT and I am embracing it all. I stretched in ways I never knew were possible! Isn’t God amazing? And then went through a CS (story for another day). Recovering from it is not a joke! I have chosen to be kind to myself. Giving myself the time I need to heal, and also to nurture my toto. I haven’t even told you about the edges I’ve lost because of breastfeeding! But I have no regrets. It’s all been worthwhile. Next year I will think about diets and workouts. (That baby pouch will need to go)😅. But for now I’m counting my blessings, enjoying the chubby cheeks and snug clothes lol.

Of late several plus size or rather women who’ve gained weight especially after giving birth have been body-shamed online.

Kambua

Talking about it, Kambua told off cyberbullies.

Also, please be kind to your friends’ postpartum. There’s SO much pressure to “snap back”, without considering that being alive after birthing a child is a miracle in itself. Watu wa, “umenona”, please have several seats over there…’

In another post, she wrote a special prayer to God, thanking him for everything.

You know why we smile? Not because the road is easy, but because even through the fiery trials, the grace of God carries us! If people opened up and shared half of the things they’re going through, you’d be shocked at how heavy some of the burdens are. Oh but grace! It makes all the difference. Knowing that God has built in you the capacity to endure whatever comes. If you’re feeling tempted to give up, don’t! If you’re consumed by fear and anxiety, be sure that is NOT the voice of God. May you hear Him above the noise and chaos. He says to be still. Be still and know that He is God! He is faithful. And He has never failed me yet.
