My secretary nearly ‘infected me with tetanus’ – Joy Gwendo

Published

on

It was a hot Tuesday afternoon on March 15, 2016 at the KICC office of Senator Joy Gwendo.

Despite air-conditioning running at full throttle, her face glistened with perspiration. There were sweat patches under the armpits of her figure-hugging maroon dress.

She clapped her hands twice, in front of her was a cowering secretary at who she screamed: “Get out! Get out! Geeeet oooouut of my office!”

In a flash, she slapped Annette Oyuga, her secretary and childhood friend with whom she schooled at Lwak Girls.

Annette couldn’t let the stinging slap go unchallenged as she charged at Gwendo before bodyguards separated them. Annette shouted: “I’m not those foolish people you beat all the time! Ichula peanuts to igoya gi wuoche (you pay me peanuts and still have the nerve to hit me with a shoe)! Nee, Senator, podi (this is not over madam Senator). You will regret this…!”

Gwendo interjected and dismissed her: “Go to the media!” and Annetted retorted, “I cannot waste my time going to the media, but Nyasacha malamo Joy biro chuli(Joy, the God I worship will avenge me).”

Contacted by The Nairobian at the time, Gwendo said she had been treated for tetanus because her secretary scratched her.

“I fired her and she refused to leave, then she became violent. She attacked me after I ordered her out of the office. I was injured during the process and was treated for tetanus, because of the scratches.”

The incident was reported at the Parliament Police Station with the reference number: OB No 23/15/3/16. But such scenes were not uncommon during Gwendo’s five-year term as Senator.

Two days before the scuffle with her secretary, she had been beaten by her partner. On 13 March, 2016, a fight had started between Gwendo and her partner after she told him that she could not take everything he said because she was a mheshimiwa for which she suffered kicks and blows in the middle of a road in Milimani estate, Kisumu.

After her beating, she broke up with the man.

Sauti Sols Polycarp’s wife Lady Mandy has for the first time talked about her pregnancy, just 2 months after welcoming their bouncing baby boy.

August 26, 2020, the cry of a baby was heard for the first time in the power couple’s home as baby O got officially introduced to the world.

Lady Mandys pregnancy journey

2 months in and the new mom has finally gained the courage to tell her story as it is, a blend of adventure and fun times in the middle of a crisis.

“Friends , I truly enjoyed my pregnancy 🙆🏽‍♀️ yo,” she started off.

“I felt the most confident, beautiful, at peace and probably most positive I have ever been in all my adult life. EVEN in the middle of a whole pandemic,” Lady Mandy beautifully confessed.

Being her first time as a mom, the Burundian melanin-skinned beauty could not get over her pregnancy journey which she best describes as a ‘bliss-filled event’.

However, unlike it would be the case for many women and mothers, hers was exciting. Something she forever remains grateful for, with numerous baby bump photos, that have proven too much for her to deal with.

“Y’all will have to endure me sharing them with you 🤣🤣🤣,”she frankly told her social media fam.

Actor Risper Faith talks about her two years struggle with weight

Published

on

It’s Monday evening when we get to Body by Design, a specialist hospital that exclusively offers plastic and cosmetic surgery in Kenya, situated on Riara road. A small bird has just whispered to us that a special client, actor and former socialite Risper Faith (pictured above), has just checked in for special treatment.

Our curiosity is drawn by the fact that for two years now, Risper has been off public limelight and only appears on her social media.

On the corridors, we bump into her husband Brian Muiruri, the father to her two-year-old son. He is looking a bit anxious and from the look of things, he is not ready to disclose much of what is going on. As we greet, a friend joins in and in another minute, a doctor calls Brian into a private room. About 30 minutes later, he returns looking a little bit relieved.

“She will be here all night as the surgery has been such a delicate process. The doctors will have to watch over her and probably discharge her tomorrow,” Brian tells us, conversing as if we have had a brief of the whole story.

“I know you (Pulse) are her friends and I am sure she will give you the whole story once she is discharged,” he assures before we are warned that visiting hours are over and that we need to leave the premises.

On Tuesday morning, we head back to the Riara Corporate Suites facility and as the clock ticks 8am, our efforts pay.

Here comes Risper with her husband. She is looking a bit weak but has enough energy to smile at us. She has a covering around her waist. Anxious, we await for her to break the story.“I was undergoing liposuction because I have had too much fat in very unwelcome places following the birth of my two-year-old son,” she breaks the ice.

“I haven’t worn a bikini since the birth of my son as I have not been confident wearing one. It felt uneasy. I am not saying that I have been overweight, but that I needed to sculpt out the body shape I wanted to have. I so badly wanted to regain my sexy body back and overly boost my self-esteem as a woman,” she remarks before getting a stitch and bowing in the pain.

She has shared her journey with her TikTok family, posting several videos of her tummy area. ‘Hello am Risper Faith and am struggling with weight after giving birth to my son,’ one of the videos is captioned, where she later picks up a waist trainer, which she tried to use.

The procedure was a tough and delicate taking almost 24 hours. She goes ahead to show us glass bottles containing the extracted fat and moving videos of the rather rigorous surgical process. This is nerve-wracking.

“When my husband and I heard that we could get permanent results here, we were so excited. At the cost of Sh450,000, we hoped for the best results and now see, soon my real curves will be showing.

The truth is that I was scared of the procedure, but I gathered my courage so then I could go through it and get the required results,” Risper goes on noting that during the procedure, everything happened step-by-step with no pain.

The former socialite grew famous for having a bootylicious body that made her one of the most sought after socialites in East Africa. She graced showbiz magazine covers with the hourglass shape the same way she appeared in music videos. She later became a cast member on Nairobi diaries, where her love for Brian blossomed. Those days are long gone.

“I have been trying everything to get my shape back. It has been a nightmare. Every woman likes to look good and I am happy I will flaunt my old awesome look again in a matter of days,” she concludes.

Amina Abdi quietly quits troubled Capital FM

Published

on

Capital FM presenter Amina Abdi Rabar has called it quits at the station which had recently been hit by a massive exodus of presenters.

Amina’s exit was not announced neither did she tell her listeners that she was leaving the station she had worked for for almost a decade.

In the last few weeks, Fareed Khimani who returned to Capital FM last year, has been hosting the morning show alone and disclosed tha there will be a new co-host who will be joining him soon.

“Amina Abdi will not be returning and I will be joined soon by a new co-host. She has gone to do big and better things,” he said.

Amina, who is a vivid social media user, did not tell her followers that she was leaving her morning show leaving many to speculate on what exactly transpired between her and station owned by city billionaire Chris Kirubi.

Her social media pages showed that she had deleted almost everything to do with the media house only leaving the material she promotes and the show she hosts on NTV, The Trend.

Her departure from Capital fm comes just a month after another long time presenter Miano Muchiri left, and unlike the quiet departure by Amina, he said he was leaving his mid-morning show which he had hosted for more than a decade.

“The time has come to say goodbye to radio I would love it if you tuned in tomorrow one last time from 10:00-14:00,” he told his listeners then.

In mid-2019, the media house lost a host of its top talents, including radio host Anita Nderu who resigned saying she felt she had given her best and wanted new challenges.

Others who left the station are Web Editor and lifestyle writer/photographer Susan Wong, who resigned in January 2019 to return to her Canadian home and popular presenter Laura Walubengo, who quit in July 2018.

Others who also left were veteran presenters like Maqbul Mohammed, Cess Mutungi and My Two Cents co-hosts Sharon Mundia.
