A man has tragically drowned while proposing to his girlfriend underwater during a dream holiday in Tanzania.

Steven Weber Jr. died minutes after he asked his girlfriend Kenesha Antoine to marry him this week.

The circumstances of his death are unclear but Kenesha took to Facebook on Friday to announce his death and explain she never had the chance to tell him yes.

In an emotional post that includes a video of the proposal and photos of the American couple, she said: “There are no words adequate enough to honour the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber, Jr.

“You were a bright light to everyone you encountered.

“You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!”.”

The video shows Steven swimming underwater and holding a zipper storage bag with a handwritten note inside.

One side reads: “I can’t hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you.

“But everything I love about you I love more every day!'”

He then shows the other side where he asks Kenesha to marry him before producing a ring.

Kenesha, an attorney, is heard laughing in the background.

Paying tribute to her late partner, Kenesha also wrote: “Just a couple days before you died, you said to me, “I’ve seen a few cancer patients on this trip, and it dawned on me that this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing that people want to experience before they die.

“And here we are in the prime of our lives doing this. We are so blessed.

“Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul.

“Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever.

“I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will.”

The post has been liked more than 1,700 times with friends and strangers offering their condolences.

The life lessons I learnt from a brief stay with my grandfather

With the schools closed, my parents got tired of me and my three siblings quarrelling and sent us to the village to stay with my grandparents.

More than any book or class, this visit taught me so much about appreciating what I have in my life and being open to the differences that I was blind to.

I protested going to the village at first, but now I am happy I did.

I had never liked being around my grandfather for so long because he is such a strict disciplinarian.

However, staying around him taught me why he is the way he is. He taught me about the value of hard work and integrity.

My grandfather is not one to stand lazy and idle people. So he taught me that I needed to structure my day to the tasks I needed to accomplish and spend time in the evening enjoying leisure.

So in this plan, we wake up in the morning to sweep the compound clean. My sisters then join my grandmother in the kitchen to make breakfast, as my brother and I help grandfather feed the cows before milking them.

Tending the animals

After breakfast, we would all go to the farm to weed. The afternoons were more of reading and playing. My brother soon gravitated towards tending the animals while I enjoyed working on the farm with my grandmother.

I also loved fetching water from the stream. We then spent the evening watching television to catch up with the news.

The discipline also made us more mindful about how our lives affected others, even when no one was watching.

We carried enough sanitisers and face masks to last us the duration of our imposed stay. We were careful because our grandparents were at that age of being vulnerable to the virus.

I noticed that many villagers were sceptical of the existence of Covid-19. They argued and dismissed the global pandemic as a hoax.

Some said they were yet to see anyone who had succumbed to the virus. Some were really tickled to see us donning face masks all the time, but we stayed true to the act knowing my grandparents’ lives depended on it.

This is how my grandfather raised my father and his eight siblings, and I am happy I got to learn this.

Decomposing bodies of a couple that has been missing for more than a week were found in their house in Laini centre off the Nairobi-Nakuru highway, yesterday.

A foul smell emanating from the house of the 72-year-old-man and his wife, 62, led to their recovery. Police have launched investigations into the incident.

There were conflicting reports about the deaths with some claiming that the two were murdered while others suspected that they could have died of carbon monoxide emitted from a jiko.

Police declined to give names of the deceased until the next of kin are informed. Emotions ran high as locals viewed the bodies.

A village elder, Moses Mwathi, revealed that the couple was working in a quarry before they went missing.

Mwathi said neighbours thought that they had travelled to their rural home but got concerned after a foul smell started emanating from their house.

“On checking they noticed that the house was locked from inside and the bodies could be seen lying on their bed,” he said.

Police gained access into the house after breaking the door. The bodies were taken to the mortuary

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru said initial investigations pointed to carbon monoxide poisoning from a jiko.

“We can’t, however, rule out murder at this moment and only a post-mortem examination will establish the real cause of the death,” said the police boss.

And in the nearby Kinungi village, a 35-year-old farmworker committed suicide by hanging himself in a house.

The body was found by his employer before police were called in. Jim Kimani, a friend to the deceased, said he was in low spirits over debts.

“He claimed that some people he owed money were harassing him but we never thought that he would commit suicide,” Kimani said.
