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.

I will always choose my wife over gospel music – Bahati 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Gospel-cum-secular singer Kevin Kioko, alias Bahati has said that he will always choose his wife Diana Marua, over Gospel music.

Speaking while responding to a questions asked by Radio Maisha presenters Billy Miya and Mbaruk Mwalimu, the singer said that Gospel music is not Jesus.

He went on to state that he knows Jesus with his heart, and he will always choose his wife, because she has blessed him with beautiful children and takes good care of him.

“Ukiambiwa uchague between gospel music ama Diana,” asked Miya.

“Ah Bibi yangu tu. Huyo ni mke wangu, naenda na mke wangu. Unajua Gospel music sio Yesu ndugu yangu. Yesu namtambua ako kwa moyo wangu lakini hapa duniani Diana kila siku…Wewe angalia unaona watoto warembo, ndio huyo nimeanza kuongeza weight what else?” said Bahati.

Bahati also disclosed that one habit she doesn’t like about his wife is the fact that she easily gets annoyed.

“Yaani anakasirika haraka sana,” added Bahati.

This comes a few days after Bahati said he had separated himself from the Gospel Industry and is now focused on doing love songs.

“The gospel ni Christ and I have Christ in my heart and believe in God and God is the reason I’m at the top, I cannot leave Christ, that’s the most important, it’s not the gospel industry. The Gospel Industry I rotten…but that’s story for another day.

“I prayed before I wrote Wanani, Missing You,nili-consult God sana. I was fought a lot in the gospel industry and I knew I was not doing the gospel for the people. So when I’m doing a gospel song I will do it for God not for the industry.

“I just separated myself from the gospel industry for a while but I’m in Christ and the lord is my personal saviour,” said Bahati.

Ex-MPs to get Sh100,000 monthly pension

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Former Members of Parliament will be getting at least Ksh100,000 per month.

This is after legislators pass an amendment to the Parliamentary Pensions Acts.

MPs who retired between 1984 and 2001 are set to receive a monthly pension of Ksh100,000 for life under revised changes to the National Assembly’s retirement benefits law.

The monthly pension for former MPs increased from the current low of Ksh33,000 to as much as Ksh125,000.

The Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) projected that the government will be paying about Sh15.1 million per month.

With the recommendation to backdate the payments to July 2010, PBO said it would cost about Sh1.76 billion in the first year of implementing the Bill.

“The annual pension payment would amount to approximately Sh180.9 million assuming there are currently about 160 ex-MPs and about 130 widows/widowers,” PBO said.

Under the law, their dependants will be entitled to about half of the set monthly pay for the spouse’s lifetime.

A second category of 80 MPs, who have been excluded from pension yet served for two terms before 2002, will get the handsome payout.

The payments will bring ex-MPs at par with their colleagues who served after 2002 and are entitled to at least Sh125,000 monthly upon serving two terms.

The remaining 80 will get a single payment of Sh11.9 million to date and the Sh100,000 monthly for life.

On Tuesday, National Assembly Minority leader John Mbadi, who sponsored the proposal, defended the Bill as hinged on a noble intention.

He told the Star it is to take care of former MPs currently “earning nothing but are entitled to pension perks”.

The ODM chair said some of the former lawmakers are paid as low as Sh2,000 which can barely cater to their needs, more so healthcare.

“It is to cater to ageing Kenyans who served Parliament and need money for medication. We have seen so many of them dying and we cannot turn a blind eye to their plight,” the Suba South MP said.
