Ugandan Woman who has been serving food to Kenyan men in a restaurant while kneeling is making some women envious

Published

on

Stella Mteyo, a 23-year-old waitress from Mbale in Uganda, is reportedly driving Kiambu men crazy with her charming manners.

Mteyo runs a hotel, Stella Vienyanjas, in the heart of Kiambu town where she serves customers her specialty food of Ugali with Omena, which goes for Ksh70 and Ugali with fish, which she sells at Ksh100.

All this she does while kneeling and her amused male clients flock the joint just to receive her king-like treatment.

Mteyo revealed that she once worked as a housegirl but her boss kicked her out because she thought she was snatching her husband. Her employer did not like the idea of her serving her husband food while kneeling.

However, she maintained that in her culture, a woman can’t serve a man without kneeling down because to them, it shows disrespect.

According to one regular customer, Aston Mutembei, he is addicted to Mteyo’s eatery considering the fact that she appreciates her clients.

“She makes you feel like you are in charge. She is not like other women who just throw your food on the table without caring if you will eat or not.

“This is how it’s supposed to be, a man should be treated like a king. For sure she knows how to cook, I always feel pampered and well taken care of,” Mutembei confessed urging women especially from Kiambu to emulate Mteyo.

Another customer, Richard Ngige, also applauded Mteyo noting that she was beautiful and courteous. He added that when he is at the hotel, he feels cherished and loved unlike when he is at home.

Mzee John Wainaina, one of Mteyo’s loyal customer, praised the Ugandan culture stating, “Ugandan women are very respectful compared to our women. In Kikuyu culture, women used to respect men and they would bring you food covering themselves with shuka or wearing a long dress to show respect, but today, they no longer do that.”

But Joan Wambui is not amused. She tweeted: “Sasa mzee wangu akionyeshwa mambo haya, atarudi nyumbani kweli?”

Jennifer Akinyi says: “I really don’t have the time for that nonsense. Kwani ni Mungu? Huyu mama anataka kutunyang’anya wazee wutu. Shindwe!”

Becoming a single father in my teens

Published

on

Their daily routine entails doing homework and studying, cooking various cuisines ranging from African to Italian, playing jenga [a building blocks game) and also, going for evening walks around the neighbourhood. Looking back, Kennedy Osano, wouldn’t wish for any other gift than that of watching his teenage girl grow into a responsible and humble girl. To him, fatherhood is a lifetime responsibility with its challenges, sweetness and bitterness and he is glad to walk through it as a single parent.

He had met the mother of his daughter in 2006 when they were both in secondary school. He lived in Naivasha, she was in Nairobi. But during the holidays, he would visit his uncle in Nairobi and often would spend time with her.

But it wasn’t long before she showed up in his school with a bulging stomach. He was in Form Three. He had nothing. But he decided he

wasn’t going to deny his blood. Though it was challenging, he proved to be tough and resilient. He adjusted to his new fate and became a paragon of docility and diligence.

A few months later, a princess was born and they named her Mellisa Levian Lanaya. At first, she stayed with her mother. After his secondary education, things changed for the better when he got a job as a messenger at a local bank. He was paid enough for him to save and enroll at a university to pursue an undergraduate degree, which propelled him to move up his career ladder.

Full custody

“I was there by my baby mama’s side all along both physically and emotionally, but when I got a stable job, I could afford to lead a decent life without struggling. I also longed to be closer to my little princess and spend more time with her,” he says.

During school holidays, Mellisa would often visit her father and spend several days before leaving for her mum’s place. At first Osano didn’t know how Mellissa’s mum would react to having him take full custody over their daughter, but he decided to do it anyway. Also, Mellisa’s mother had already moved on and married someone else.

“I was determined to get her to stay with me, so I talked to her mother and we came to an agreement that Mellisa would visit her during the holidays. It wasn’t hard since I had always stepped in and played my part even while my daughter was with her,” he says.

Though he was not a stranger to his daughter, when he started living with her in 2018, they had to start learning each other — learning what his daughter liked and vice versa.

The 31-year-old father says raising her became easy with the support of his friends and family. Also, his baby mama is supportive and is always a phone call away when her attention or guidance is needed. Osano is determined to raise his girl into a disciplined and responsible individual.

But despite the merits that fatherhood has to offer, their biggest challenge is the 18 years age difference, between them. Often, especially when in public, people eye the duo suspiciously.

“She has grown so fast. Sometimes when people see a young girl in the

backseat and no adult woman in the passenger seat, they raise eyebrows. At times I have been questioned and even forced to pull out her birth certificate just to prove my point,” he says.

He makes sure he is in the house in time to have dinner with her and limit the number of guests that come to the house. “Sometimes, a man just needs a quiet place, a beer on his hand; watch his favourite football team play [Arsenal], eating whatever he decides or not eating at all, and spending the night anywhere. However, all this drastically changed,” he says “My biggest challenge is having the sex talk with Melissa— talking to her about boys, her body changes and why she has to shuttle between her mum’s place to my place. But I take her through this, helping her understand we both love her and wish the best for her,” he says.

Fatherly advice

As his only child, Osano has made sure that her interests come first. His parting shot to fathers is to instill the desire for success in their daughters. “I make sure she grows up knowing that her success is solely in her hand and the world will only elevate her to her platform of success, discipline, empathy, modesty, self-belief and respect for authority and those who are older than her will keep her on that right path,” he says.

SINGLE FATHERHOOD

• Your parenting success hinges on having a reliable support system in place. As single parents, dads more often than mums, tend to hold back when seeking out help.

• Many single fathers do not want to get on their children’s bad side. Fathers are often seen as the disciplinarians of the family, and many who find themselves parenting alone attempt to drop that label.

• Single fathers often try really hard to protect their children. Making room for a few limited risks will be hard, but it can increase both your confidence and your child’s.

Lusaka deny claims of involvement in Wamalwa’s imminent sacking

The Government has warned people who have encroached the riparian land to move to other grounds as floods continue to wreak havoc in different regions of the country.

Environment CS Keriako Tobiko on Wednesday urged Kenyans to take responsibility and respect laws regarding the riparian reserve.

So far, 285 people have lost their lives and 810,655 others affected by floods, mudslides and landslides occasioned by heavy rains in most regions. While giving the weekly update on floods in the country, Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa said a more comprehensive report that will factor in the crop loss in acreage will be confirmed next week.

“We also have acreage, in terms of crop loss in many parts of the country that our colleagues in Agriculture will be confirming by next week. As the rains subside, we will be able to establish the exact acreage in terms of crop loss that we have suffered, in terms of the irrigation, land and infrastructure,” the CS said.

He warned the Coast, Western and Nyanza regions will continue to bear the brunt of the floods as the rains are expected to continue into the month of June.

However, in Northern Kenya, Garissa and Mandera, which were among the worst hit, the rains were subsiding while most dams across the country were still full but had stabilized. At the same time, the CS urged county governments to work with the Meteorological Department by utilising the information given in a better way to caution those at risk.

“We take this opportunity to thank the Meteorological Department that has been of great help in terms of giving us very accurate information and reliable data. The accuracy tells us going into the future when we get alerts, please let us not take them lightly,” he warned.

CS Wamalwa assured those that had been affected with the heavy rains that the Government will them to rebuild homes after the month of June.
