I now want a wife, man who built road in Murang’a says

Published

on

A 45-year-old man who hit the headlines after singlehandedly digging a two-kilometre road in Murang’a has revealed that he is a reformed bhang smoker and is now ready to get married.

After building the village road using farm implements, he has turned out to be a community hero and has attracted the recognition of corporates and well-wishers who have rewarded him for his selflessness deeds.

Mr Nicholas Muchami from Kaganda village in Kiharu Constituency dug the steep hilly bushy road by hand using farm tools to ease the burden of the elderly, the sick, women and the school children who previously trekked for four kilometres to the nearest shopping centre and to school.

Although his deed was selfless and for which he expected no pay, Mr Muchami’s action attracted public attention, earning him respect and recognition from people in Kenya and abroad.

The man was previously despised and looked down upon by some of those who knew him due to his past record, having served a jail term for fracturing his father’s hand in a quarrel over an avocado fruit in 2005.

After serving time in jail two years, he was again found guilty of being a perennial bhang smoker in 2015. He was convicted and sentenced to a non-custodial sentence of one-and-a-half years.

With this background, Muchami says he had not imagined that he would one time be respected and honoured by his own community, leave alone corporates.

A reformed Muchami decided to give back to the society expecting no favours and recognition. His main concern was just to save fellow villagers from the agony of a tiring circuitous journey due to lack of a quick access road.

Speaking after he received a dairy cow and animal feeds which will last him for six months from the ABC Bank on Tuesday, Mr Muchami said he can only attribute the unfolding events to God.

“I have smoked bhang and all sorts of things but since I mended my ways and got saved at the ACK Kaganda church, God has been with me all through. I dug the road without any clue of what would happen later but my efforts have made me famous and I now have a donation of two grade cows, animal feeds and a tap water,” the jovial Muchami said, adding that he will endeavour to speak to drug users to mend their ways.

Mr Muchami, who now works as a guard at Kaganda Primary School, said that due to his past record and poverty, he has never married.

But he said he is now ready to marry in order to have a companion with whom to look after the God-given wealth.

ABC Bank’s Treasury and Financial Institutions General Manager Phillip Wambua said they have given Mr Muchami tips on dairy farming, assisted him to open an account with a local bank, adding that they will ensure that he earns a decent living through dairy farming.

“This is the second cow to Mr Muchami and the idea is to ensure he earns a living through dairy farming. We will supply him with animal feeds for six months and follow up on the progress of the insured cow to make sure that all is well,” he said.

He urged government to honour the man and name the road he built “Muchami Drive” in recognition of his efforts in serving the community.

HILARIOUS VIDEO: Woman offers herself to be married by President Kenyatta at BBI Launch event

Published

on

A woman who spoke at the BBI Launch on Monday caused prolonged laughter when she said she was ready to be President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘mpango wa kando‘ (which loosely translates to second wife) and that Deputy President William Ruto should be the Best man in their wedding [watch the video below].

 Last week, Kenyatta tickled the audience in Kisumu when he joked that he would ask his wife if she would let him get a second wife from there.

On a more serious note though, there is indeed a  law that went into effect in Kenya in 2014 makes it legal for a man to marry as many women as he wants.

President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the polygamy measure into law formally recognizing what has long been a cultural practice in the nation.

The bill initially allowed the first wife the right to veto the husband’s choice of additional spouses. Male members of parliament successfully pushed to get that clause dropped.

 

“Marriage is the voluntary union of a man and a woman whether in a monogamous or polygamous union,” Kenyatta said in a statement. “The Marriage Act 2014 defines various types of marriages including monogamous, polygamous, customary, Christian, Islamic and Hindu marriages.”

‘I was jobless and about to be kicked out’ Tedd Josiah on how Kenyans came through for him after losing his wife

Published

on

Kenyan Music producer and JokaJok founder Tedd Josiah has thanked Kenyans for coming through when he lost his wife Reginah Katar.

Katar passed away just months after welcoming her daughter Jay.

Since then, Tedd says strangers became family and he is forever grateful.

‘To our beloved IG family, To say thank you doesn’t ever feel like it’s enough.

I was broken (am still in repair) and lost.

2017 Oct was all about cliffhanging in PAIN, learning how to raise a baby girl 3 months old ALONE! No nanny, no relatives, no one just baby and I walking the toughest walk I’ve ever had to.

Tedd Josiah

Guess who came through for us with baby clothes, with baby milk, with words of encouragement, with prayers and more prayers and more prayers…? Our IG FAMILY that was at the time only 20k at the time.

When JayJay’s 1st birthday 🎂 came along I was scared and very jobless about to be kicked out of our home.

People from as far as China sent JayJay gifts 🎁 and cakes 🎂 and so many other things. You made it bearable.’

Adding

‘When we launched mama’s idea of a bag company JOKAJOK you embraced us and have continued to build with us from day one.

Now we not only feed ourselves but we feed 11 other families through employment and we empower single mothers and fathers in our company.

Our head of leather studio is a lady feeding and fending for 3 children alone, all our other staff also have children to fend for and we’ve managed to come this far with you our IG family and build a legacy company.

Tedd Josiah

The road ahead is even longer and only God knows were it leads.

Sometimes strangers become closer than family and love you in a real way they will pray, fast, love and support you.
We don’t take that for granted at all and we want to thank you.

Let’s keep building the bear 🐻 family but also let’s build other people who maybe in need.

WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOU. LIVE 🦋 LOVE 💕 LAUGH 😂’
