Campus boyfriend dumped me because I was broke – Naisula Lesuuda

Published

What is your alma mater?

I was certain that I wanted to pursue journalism while in high school and made a pact with my father that if I improved mathematics, score he would take me to the campus of my choice. I performed well, and even though my father didn’t have enough funds to take me to Daystar, which was my first choice he sold all his cows for me to pursue a degree in communication and community development (at Daystar).

Why communication?

I enjoyed listening to news presenters on radio and was fairly good in public speaking and excelled in extracurricular activities like drama, music festivals and did very well in languages. Besides, the fact that my dad is a reverend and would allow me to speak to the congregation in church and whenever he travelled sharpened my communication skills.

How was it at Daystar?

I experienced culture shock. The only time I came to Nairobi was when I used to go for Bible camps which was a different set up from being in campus. There were cliques, outrageous fashion and the urban rich kids to contend with. I was a quiet student who had one friend at a time. Most of my peers today wonder how I ever joined politics and became so vocal. To date, even though I am social, I avoid cliques.

What were you known for in campus?

I enjoyed playing badminton and I got an award for the sports lady of the year. I also joined clubs and groups that I loved like Afrizo, but was more a dancer than a singer.

What was your favourite and worst unit?

Communication and Culture, Electronic Media and Broadcast presentations were my favourite. I probably enjoyed them because of because of the lecturers who taught them. I am not a fan of anything to do with statistics and math, so I disliked Statistics for Communication Research.

How did you balance social life and books?

It was just a matter of doing the right thing at the right time. I am not a morning person so I would ensure that I studied late at night.

Did you have side hustles?

No. My dad was very clear that he had taken me to school to study so I had to focus on just that.

Best and worst moments in campus

My best moment was graduating because it wasn’t easy for me and over time I got a scholarship, dubbed work study, as I was like a prefect of my hostel. I got bursaries and the fact that I was able to complete the fees, made me happy. My worst moment was my dating experience. My first attempt at dating did not work out because my boyfriend made it clear to my face that I had nothing to offer him because I was not from the same social class. He went to date another lady from the same social class as his. You just don’t forget such an experience.

What did that dating experience teach you?

Looking at other people who dated and got married to those they dated in campus, I learnt that you can’t use one person’s experience to say that dating doesn’t work. Everyone’s experience is different and special.

Last word to those in campus

Just enjoy it and make the most out of it. You’ll miss that moment for it never comes back.

A Kakamega family has denied the report by a British TV that its firstborn could be the person whose body fell from a plane in the United Kingdom.

The family has revealed to Standard Digital that their son was called Cedrick Shivanji and not Paul Manyasi as extensively reported by Sky TV yesterday.

“My brother could be alive and they got the names of my parents’ and village name wrong,” Brian Beti told Standard Digital.Sky TV’s John Sparks said the parents were called Paul Manyasi and Irene Manyasi. Brian says his parents are Isaack Beti and Janet Khakali.

“He last posted on Facebook in July yet the man they were reporting about fell from the plane on June 30,” Brian added.

Asked if the family had contacted their son, Brian says he often changed phone numbers and it was hard to get hold of him.“Someone has told dad that he was last seen at Kibera Law Courts,” Brian said, adding that his father was preparing to travel to Nairobi to authenticate the information.

Sky TV reported that Paul, who was 29, was a cleaner for Colnet company at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi.Kenya Airport Authority (KAA) yesterday denied that they could not get any individual named Paul Manyasi in the JKIA register.

Could the wedding bells be ringing for Kenyan volleyball star Janet Wanja?

The Kenya Pipeline setter on Tuesday took to Facebook and announced her engagement to Italian boyfriend Giulio Calauti.

This piece of news was received with excitement and congratulatory notes from her friends on Facebook with some asking when to expect her in a wedding gown.

VISIT HIS FAMILY

Wanja has been dating Giulio for the past year or so and at some point, the Italian invited the Malkia Striker to Italy to visit his family.

And perhaps to show her commitment, Wanja appears to be learning some Italian going by the recent birthday message she posted to her better half.

“I thank God for blessing you yet another year to celebrate. My prayer is He keeps watching over you as He Always Has. Grazie mio cuore (thank you my heart) for always being there for me and loving me in waits I could never have imagined,” wrote Wanja.

The development provides a triple celebration for Wanja who recently helped the national women volleyball team win the African Games title in Morocco.

She also landed a lucrative endorsement deal with a betting company believed to be worth millions of shillings.

17th body found floating on Nairobi River during clean-up

Published

on

A body of an infant has been found during the ongoing clean-up of Nairobi River in Korogocho area.

The discovery brings to 17 the number of bodies retrieved from the river since Governor Sonko launched the Nairobi River cleanup exercise early last year, according to Nairobi county government spokesman Elkana Jacob. So far, bodies of 13 infants and four adults have been retrieved from the river.

“Right now we are still in shock,” said Fredrick Okinda, chairman of Komb-Green Solutions, the organisation behind the clean-up. “One of us saw the floating baby and we rushed to save him as a team. We managed to recover him but he was already dead.”

This is the ninth baby his organisation has found in one section of the river in a few months. The team has buried the bodies in a makeshift grave next to the river.

PLASTIC BAG

Okinda believes that this was another aborted baby and has previously blamed illegal clinics for some of the bodies found.

In May, the clean-up crew found the body of an eight-year-old boy, just days after the bodies of twin babies were discovered in a plastic bag.

Abortions are illegal in Kenya, unless a woman’s life or health is in danger.

The news coincides with the first day of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), which sees thousands of experts in sexual and reproductive health gather in Nairobi.

Some 6,000 people – including heads of state, government ministers and donors – will gather to discuss everything from sex education to maternal deaths and child marriage.

The event has come under fire from Christian groups who claim that it is promoting abortion and homosexuality in Kenya.

At a press conference on Monday, Saitoti Torome, Principal Secretary at the State Department of Planning, said authorities had been engaging with faith-based organisations to ensure that concerns were addressed.

“There is no attempt to push issues like homosexuality and abortion at this conference,” he said.

“This is a global summit, not a Kenya summit,” added Arthur Erken, UNFPA’s Director of Communications and Strategic Partnerships.

“This is an important issue for women and girls and that is why we cannot shy away from these difficult issues. What to do with it afterward is the sovereign right of every nation.”
