A woman has pleaded guilty to trying to sell her one-and-half year old baby.

According to the charge sheet, on March 6, at Namboboto village in Funyula constituency, MO offered to sell her son to one Justus Ojanji at Sh300,000.

Yesterday, the woman stood quietly in the dock with the baby she is being accused of planning to sell in her arms, as the charges were read out to her before she pleaded guilty to the offence.

“On March 6, 2019, at Namboboto village in Samia sub-county within Busia County, being mother to SO, a boy child aged one year and six months, (you) offered him for sale to a Justus Odowa Ojanji at Sh300,000,” read the charge sheet.

The deal did not, however, end, as police were tipped and made some arrests.MO was arrested alongside a man who pleaded not guilty to facilitating the sale of the child, in violation of the Children’s Act.

“On March 6, 2019 at Namboboto village, Samia sub county facilitated the sale of SO, a baby boy to Justus Odowa Ojanji at Sh300,000,” read the second suspect’s charge sheet.

The suspect told Principal Magistrate Samson Temu he was approached by MO to look for someone to buy the baby, saying she was a single mother with five other children who she was struggling to raise.

Besides the money, the only other condition for sale was that the buyer should be someone without a child of their own.

“She came to me and told me she had six children and therefore she was willing to sell the baby boy,” said the man charged with facilitating the sale deal.

The magistrate directed that the baby’s intended buyer, who was not in court, be arraigned to face the law.

“The person who was to buy the child should be produced in court,” said Temu.

Woman writes list of tips for ex’s new girlfriend

Published

on

While many people have absolutely no interest in seeing their ex after a break up, others are determined to stay friends.

It can be extremely difficult as the nature of the relationship changes, but one of the hardest parts is watching your ex move on with someone else.

But one woman went to extreme lengths to help her former partner, Jacob, when it came to his new girlfriend – writing her a list of tips and advice for being with him.

As well as listing some of his favourite things – including the colour red, Corona and 1800 liquor – she also listed things she should avoid.

She also gave some advice on being his girlfriend, including ignoring negative gossip about him and not being offended when he just sits in front of the TV all night.

She offered tips on hanging around with his mates and warned her to never finish a Netflix series without him.

She also gave details on their relationship, including the date of their first meeting.

Jacob shared the list on Twitter, and people don’t really know what to make of it.

 

Many people were slightly freaked out by the whole thing, saying that some of the points suggest serious red flags.

One wrote: “If someone I was dating gave me a letter from their ex we would immediately be finished. I would not date anyone who tweets this garbage either.”

 

Another commented: “That’s like the kinda list I write when someone has to look after my cat because it can’t look after itself – not a grown ass man.”

One man commented: “Any woman would be lucky to avoid.”

Another pointed out one particularly worrying line, saying: “You will constantly hear negative things about him from other people.” Omg lol! I missed that on the first read through. All you need to know right there.”

One woman wrote: “She knows that much about you because she paid attention because she loved you enough to want to know everything about you. I wish at least ONE of the guys I’ve ever dated would’ve taken the time to know even half of this about me. This kinda stuff doesn’t happen often enough.”

Chantelle Donnelly posted the pictures online of her own post-baby body which she called “disgusting”.

And she wrote on Instagram, women shouldn’t “have to feel great” about the way they look.

“Why should I have to love my body? Because it grew two humans?

“Yes, I’m very proud of my body because it’s been through so much in the last few years,” the mum posted.

“But does being proud of my body mean that I have to love the way it looks? Hell no. When I look in the mirror I don’t love what I see, but I’m not sad about that.

“You don’t need to feel pressured into loving your body and it’s OK if you don’t. Love your body? I’m so happy that you do.

“But don’t love your body? That’s alright too.”

Chantelle, understood to be from Australia, also wrote a heartwarming post on her blog The Losing Mumma , in which she admitted she has ” cellulite , stretch marks ,loose skin breastfeeding boobs and a mum tum”.

But the blogger stressed it is “absolutely fine” to hate all these things and mothers don’t need to pretend not to.

Readers have admired Chantelle’s honesty and posted their support on Instagram.

“Your body is not disgusting – it is beautiful and amazing,” one woman wrote.

“I fully support this,” said another. “Posting pictures of my body is something I could never do. You are beautiful for that.”

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.

On the employment opportunities created by the Standard Gauge Railway, the State House spokesperson noted that many youths got jobs inside the trains and as taxi operators from the two main termini.

“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.
