Joey Muthengi: Depression over a cheating boyfriend made me suicidal

Published

on

Former Citizen TV anchor Joey Muthengi has spilled the beans on her struggle with depression that pushed her to being suicidal.

In a recent interview with ‘The Unwritten’, an online magazine, Joey revealed that she got depressed over a long time after she found that her white boyfriend had gotten married.

Joey narrated how she fell in love with her white boyfriend while they were in high school and everything was all good through the years until when she landed her job at Citizen TV in June 2016.

“The love of my life was a white man. I knew him since high school. We were perfect but the logistics around our lives just weren’t matching. We were always travelling on different time zones, different location and I was so keen on climbing the career ladder.

“And when I finally got to Citizen TV, when I was finally feeling like ‘I’ve sort of ‘made it’, I started looking for him again and then I found out he got married… through Facebook of all the places,” said Joey.

This threw her into depression and it was not easy to rally the support of her family

“I was quite depressed for a longtime. Even my family couldn’t understand and kept asking ‘what is it about this guy?” Joey added.

State House spokesperson Kanze Dena on Wednesday revealed that she has done several menial jobs before getting to where she is right now.

Speaking during an interview on Ghetto Radio, Dena urged youths not to be choosy when it comes to jobs, noting that most people start from humble beginnings.

She further stated that she once worked at her grandfather’s cafeteria where she used to peel potatoes before scaling up to become a waitress.

“There are a number of opportunities for the youth in our country. The Government is emphasizing on technical training to ensure the youth have the skills required for various jobs.

“There are various projects the Government is undertaking under the #Big4Agenda across the country. These projects require skilled labor where our youth can get job opportunities, even as the Government works on a long term solution,” she said.

Dena had good news for the youth as she revealed that the government was in the process of creating a database where young people will be linked up with jobs that fit their qualifications.

“The Government is also creating a database through the National Employment Authority where the youth can register so that they can be linked up with jobs that fit their profiles whenever these jobs come up,” she added.

“President Kenyatta has the best interest of the youth at heart. He is working hard to ensure the right policies and environment for the youth to prosper,” she remarked.

Eric Omondi dejected as girlfriend Chantal leaves him, flies back to Italy

Published

on

Comedian Eric Omondi says his ex-lover Chantal Grazioli requested to fly back to her native country, Italy, to start her life afresh.

Speaking to EDAILY on Wednesday, Eric Omondi said upon granting Chantal her wish, they agreed that they terminate their romantic relationship but remain as friends.

“What Kenyans did not know is that Chantal has never been Kenyan; she is Italian. Whenever she jetted into Kenya, she always came to visit me. With her tourist visa, she cannot work in the country. And, she recently asked me if I can allow her to permanently stay in Italy and get formal employment there. And because I had seen her stay in my house doing nothing meaningful, I saw it wise to grant her her request. Given we would stay far apart from each other over an unknown period, we reached a mutual agreement to end the relationship,” Eric Omondi told EDAILY on phone.

“However, it doesn’t mean that our paths will never cross. There is a possibility, maybe a high one, that we will get back together some day,” said the funnyman.

Eric Omondi’s revelation comes a few hours after the humorist took to Instagram to announce his split from the model.

“I will miss you,” read a part of Eric Omondi’s lengthy post.

“I met you when you were only 19. I have known you for 4 and a half years. [I have] shared and created some of the best moments in life with you. You changed my life completely.

“As you move into your new phase in life — with or without me — I want to wish you all the best, my love.

“I pray to God Almighty that He may keep you… May He lead you…

“May He watch over you…I want to let you know that I will always be here for you anytime, every time. As you fly away, my Love, may you glow, shine like the angel that you are.

“I will miss you. Every moment. Every single moment. You are the best thing that happened to me! Na kwa wale wadau wadaku, Chantal and I are okay. We were friends long before we were lovers and our friendship stays for life.

“And to those young men and women who prefer to take each others’ lives at the end of a relationship, let this be a lesson to you all. You do not own a person and it doesn’t always work out. Anyway, guys have yourselves a blessed day and remember to wish Chantal a happy birthday this coming Friday.”
