Here is the post he did on his empoloyer’s page,@capitalfmkenya

Never thought I’d be one of those people who has to check their emotions every time I feel low.

Grew up in a happy but struggling family on the other side of town where not much emotions are allowed so when the therapist told me I might be suffering from depression it came as a surprise to me.

I went through a bad patch in the past years comprising of financial, domestic and mental troubles.

Not to go into details, I turned to drinking thinking it’ll sort my feelings but made it worse; so much so, one fine evening after an argument on the home front I took off went to a friends party drank myself to embarrassment. I almost passed out and had to have my partner pick me up

Woke up early morning feeling sad dejected and low. I took a knife to end it all but as it would be, the hangie was superior so I passed out hehehe

I began a habit of locking myself in my room; after that, not wanting to see anyone or go anywhere.

Long story short, through my family and close friends I managed to slowly creep out of it. – @Maqbull .”

A number of celebrities in Kenya, one of them being his colleague, Anita Nderu.  are battling the disease, as more people become more aware of their emotions.

Man accuses pastor of eloping with his wife

Published

on

A businessman from Juja Farm, KiambuCounty, has accused a pastor who presided over his wedding of eloping with his wife of 26 years.

Mr John Kanyua, a father of five, alleged the pastor supported them and even signed their marriage certificate.

Mr Kanyua claimed the pastor’s relationship with his wife started when his wife was appointed an assistant pastor of a church in Juja Farm.

“I objected Mr Kanyua’s appointment as an assistant pastor, but he (my husband) was determined to have his way. I confronted Mr Kanyua’s wife and threatened her not to play games with my husband,” said the pastor’s wife of 34 years.

The pastor’s wife says her husband soon began to invite Mrs Kanyua for family dinner.

“I confronted Mr Kanyua and asked him to keep his wife away from my husband, the two later eloped in 2015,” she added.

Mr Kanyua alleges that bishop would visit his house in the morning and spend the entire day locked with his wife in the house until he sought the intervention of the local administration and the church.

“The pastor later eloped with my wife and children and rented a house at a nearby market,” Mr Kanyua said.

Mr Kanyua alleges his parents-in-law have since asked him to accept a compensation of the dowry he paid to pave way for their daughter’s new wedding.

He alleges the pastor has informed his children of his intention to marry another wife after separating with their mother.

Mr Kanyua says he still pays school fees for his children and sends them foodstuffs.

“I won’t sit back and watch another man take away my family, I will not allow the wedding to continue,” said Mr Kanyua adding that he is ready to forgiver his wife.

The pastor’s wife says she still does not understand why her husband turned against her.

“We have passed through a lot when we started the church, I won’t allow him to marry a stranger,” she said.
