VIDEO: Kenyan woman under fire for asking married women to respect and support “Mpango wa Kandos”

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

A Kenyan woman who was filmed by Tuko.co.ke defending the role of  mpango wa kandos (sidechicks) in the society is catching a lot of flak from netizens who do not believe in her gospel. In the video which has since gone viral, she seeks to eloquently demonstrate the importance of mistresses in men’s lives, arguing that the side chicks ably offer what the First lady” doesn’t.

This comes at a sensitive time when Judy Wangui, a woman believed to be the mistress of a man whose wife, Mary Wambui, was killed in Nairobi two weeks ago is set to be charged with murder alongside a man believed to have helped her try to dispose of the body.

Evidence based on witness accounts and CCTV footage shows that Ms Wambui and Ms Wangui shared a hearty afternoon at Homeland Inn, off Thika Road, before leaving for Fourways Junction in Ms Wambui’s car at sunset.

Watch;

“Behind every successful man and woman is a sidechick,” opines one tweep. But several others, mostly commenting on Facebook, are not in agreement.

Ngugi Waweru God created the woman to be man’s helper. He never said both should be equal. Women have been fighting to be equal to men. If each partner could play their roles diligently, such nonsense as MWK couldn’t be there. Research data provides that women have been the cause of marriage breakdowns in most African societies esp in urban setups.

Evelyn Just Side chick please humble request , if you truly love him pick him when hes still mr zero but dont wait and you think you will enjoy my hursle.just dig your grave before coming to feast on whats not yours.

James Ngigeh The name of anyone who comes between two married people is DEATH. Read Mathew 19:6.

Kemuma Omariba Side chick should get busy building her own empire and stop wasting time building a man who is not hers.That’s called wisdom.

Llysa Flake If they are good enough n fullfill what wives can’t fulfill why can’t they get their own husbands’?They are there to lure people’s husband behaving like they care enough because they want some material gains.

Susan Waweru From the comments it’s clear that all those supporting this lady ni ma side chicks/hens but the bible says that you are death.

Qaroline de Albert who is your husband? i wanna be his side chic.

Philemon Ouma Can a struggling man have a sidechick definitely no….
They only look for men who are money loaded and successful family.
Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman.. Not the vice-versa.

Lynnette Olesi Eshikhaty May thunder strike u dead if i find you with my hubby .side chick vindu shi those are agents of destruction n we rebuke them RISWAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joy Mwangi This woman is cursed. If these so called side chicks think they are beautiful, why do the go for these married men. They shud get their own men tuwatambue.

Published

Two Kenyan men have said “I do” in the United States.

Benson Kamau and James Mwaura tied the knot at a gay wedding ceremony in Chicago, Illinois, this past weekend.

According to Mwakilishi.com, as US based news website, Kamau and Mwaura are both natives of Kenya.

Sam-sex marriage has been legal in Illinois since June 1, 2014 after Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill legalizing such marriages on November 20, 2013.

This is not the first time that a Kenyan man has entered into matrimonial union with another man in the US, In 2016, Mr Ben Gitau, 33, and Mr Steve Damelin got married at Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In a related development in February, 2018, a self proclaimed Kenyan Lesbian married an American woman in a low key ceremony held in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Manuella Mumbi tied the knot with her American lover,  Lisa Webb Clay.

Mumbi, one of the few Kenyan women who have boldly come out to declare that they are lesbians, was born and raised in Kahawa, Kiambu County and recently relocated to the US to live with her better half before their wedding.

Webb Clay is an American model who hails from Texas. She reportedly invited Mumbi to the US to formalize their engagement.

Last week, the Court of Appeal in Kenya granted gays and lesbians the freedom to register their own umbrella lobby.

In a judgment delivered on Friday, a majority decision of the Court of Appeal held that human beings should not be denied their fundamental rights because of how they choose to live their lives.

This position was taken by judges Philip Waki, Asike Makhandia and Martha Koome while affirming the decision of the High Court.

Why are there so few women chefs?

Published

on

It is believed that the kitchen is a woman’s place and as girls grow up cooking with their grandmothers and mothers, they carve their culinary career path from an early age.
But being amazing home cooks rarely elevates them to professional chefs.

At most high-end restaurants in Nairobi and Mombasa, there are no female executive chefs.

The InterContinental Hotel, for instance, has a male executive chef and one woman sous chef. Out of the 50 chefs at the hotel, just 18 are women. The Nairobi Serena and Tamarind Tree hotels which both have male executive chefs also have female sous chefs, who are a step below the executive chefs.

At Utalii Hotel, which has a college that trains hospitality workers, the ratio of women chefs to men is one to three, says Catherine Sidi of the food production department at the college.

This is the reality in the rest of the top hotels. Even globally, the number of male chefs awarded Michelin stars, the ultimate accolade of fine dining, outnumbers those given to women.

An executive chef leads the kitchen teams and also participates in cooking, planning menus and creating new dishes. Whereas a sous chef plans and directs food preparation in a kitchen.

So why don’t women rise to executive chef posts?

The pressure on women to juggle work and home life is nothing new but executive chef John Getanda of the Nairobi Serena says that a top chef’s job mostly involves running through 12 to 14 hour shifts and this could be the reason why more men take up the jobs as opposed to women.

“It is not easy and most women have given up along the way despite being capable chefs. Some want to start families and do something else after a short stint in the career,” he says.

Long hours

Sous Chef Corretta Akinyi of the Hotel InterContinental says that the hours are really what makes the job tough.

“For a woman to rise, she has to work long hours and be willing to stay even after work to perfect and learn new culinary skills that is just not easy for everyone,” she says.

Chef Corretta says while there are almost as many women as men when starting out in hotels, but most female chefs either divert to other ventures or stagnant on junior levels.

“Some prefer to be pastry chefs which is a flexible job in the sense that you can prepare the pastries a day before as opposed to working in the ‘hot kitchen’ where everything is done on the same day and with so much pressure,” she says.

When I ask Chef Getanda whether the restaurant kitchen is like what we see in famed TV series Hell’s Kitchen and if that could be the reason why the job could is tough for women, he laughed.

“No, that is not how kitchens are, and if they were, it would be a bad environment for anyone to work in, not just the women,” he says.

He adds that the industry needs to work on its representation, conditions and image to achieve a truly diverse workforce.

US firm reveals plan to grow marijuana in Kenya

Published

on

A New York-based company is claiming to have obtained a licence to cultivate marijuana on 500 acres of land in Kenya, bringing closer home the current global debate about regulation and control of the narcotic.

In a notice, GoIP Global Inc, which is listed on the OTC Markets of New York, told its shareholders that it has secured a permit to grow the stimulant on a 500-acre plot in Kenya.

“After visiting Kenya and meeting with officials in the country, I am very excited about the prospects this agreement (licence) brings to our company. This is the first of several critical transactions that will transform GoIP into a relevant member of the burgeoning cannabis industry,” said company chairman Ike Sutton in the statement dated March 7.

“The lease term will be for 25 years and Kenya being on the Equator provides the best conditions for all-year round production,” the statement adds.

However, the Kenyan government denied issuing such a licence, warning that marijuana remains a prohibited plant in the country’s statutes. GoIP did not respond to our multiple requests for comment.

Agricultural Research Principal Secretary Hamadi Boga said he is not aware of any permit issued to GoIP Global Inc for the growing of cannabis.

“I am not aware of the licensing of the said firm to grow marijuana. As you are aware, cannabis is not in the list of crops that we currently regulate,” said Prof Boga.
