City Pastor Robert Burale has made a rather sad confession of how he forgave the man behind his death.

Taking to social media, the pastor said his brother was hit by an ambulance driver who didn’t stop.

The pastor said that he was in a meeting when several calls came but he kept ignoring them until he saw one from his cousin.

Whe he picked, he was told about his brother and was forced to cut the meeting short and rush to Nairobi Hospital where his brother was.

Later he got to meet the driver who explained why even after hitting his brother couldn’t stop.

Read the sad post below:

WHEN PAIN TEACHES AND PROCESSES YOU GOOD!! So my Bro sends me a selfie on 25th Sept at 11:44 a.m…I am taken a back as we dont usually do that, but then realised he was showing me he was dressed in RB Wear…Haya fast forward.⏩ While in a meeting,

I receive many calls and think to myself “I will call back” …but one call from my cousin Lucas Meso stood out and I answered, Lucas told me “Bob your brother has been hit by an ambulance and it didnt stop but he has been taken to hospital..Rush there now…”

So I get to Nairobi Hospital (thank you for your great care) and my Brother has been stabilized and prepped for a gruelling 5-6 hour surgery … Fast forward (next day) the driver that hit him gives himself up to the police and I receive a call from my mum (who had arrived from Bukhalalire on the material day) “Son, The driver who hit your bro is here at Kilimani Police Station, please come “…

All of a sudden ANGER gripped me and I drove to Kilimani with my cousins Jerome Odada, Dan Jets, Isaac Chibole and when I set my eyes on the gentleman I was PISSED and the first thing I told my mum was “get out of this place …. this is a man-to-man issue” ….

The first question I posed to him was “you mean you left my brother wounded and bleeding on the road…did you want him to die like a dog?” And of course I was not using a preachers tone or voice (zile za it is well)..this was Big Bro taking care of Small Bro…A lot went through my mind ….

Then the HOLY SPIRIT clearly said to me “CALM DOWN”….and I get to listen to the driver, compassion took over “I am sorry about your brother…I was rushing an 8 day old baby to hospital”

I immediately felt sorry for him and prayed with him and told him I am sorry..The man was clearly in a catch 22 situation….We then talked and fellowshiped together as we brain stormed on how to raise his bail ….(God has a sense of humour)….

The weight that was off our shoulders, after forgiving him (my bro did as well) was immense and crazy as it may sound.. my Bros healing Is WAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.. Let’s all remember that driver in prayer….Its not easy for him… I pray after reading this you will also reach out t

Arrangements are in place for fans and counterparts to next week mark the 22rd anniversary since the death of Congolese musician Pepe Kalle Yampanya.

The burly baritone voiced singer who collapsed and died on November 29, 1998 in Kinshasa will be remembered as one of the entertainment greats with his Grand Empire Band.

Most of his fans will remember him for some of his popular tunes like ‘Roger Milla’: (dedicated to Cameroonian soccer legend Roger Milla), ‘Moyibi’, ‘Pon Moun Paka Bouge’, ‘Bitoto’ and ‘Amour Pedre’.

Notably, he recorded several collaborations with his long-time counterpart Nyboma Mwandido, who lives in Paris, France. Both had performed together in the early 1970s in Kinshasa.

Though there are no special shows arranged due to the Covid-19 pandemic, some of his former band members including the Kinshasa-based Lofombo Godo will dedicate online shows to him. Lofombo, who is a bass guitarist and producer, also had a stint with the Delta Force band.

Most of the former band members of the Grand Empire Bakuba settled in Europe after Kalle’s death. Among them were Papy Tex (of the ‘Kanda ya Nini’ hit song fame), Elvis Kunku, Ebuya Doris Djuna Mumbafu and Kinanga Boeing.

Jacque Maribe: I suffered two miscarriages before I got my son

Former Citizen TV news anchor and media personality Jacque Maribe says she lost two pregnancies before she got her son Zahari.
Zahari’s father is comedian Eric Omondi.
In an interview with True Love Magazine, Ms. Maribe said she battled infertility and suffering miscarriages was tough for her as she did not know what was wrong.

What made things worse and what made the media personality think she would never get a child was a disclosure by the doctors that she had suffered from the septate.
A septate uterus is a deformity of the uterus, which happens during fetal development before birth. A membrane called the septum divides the inner portion of the uterus, at its middle.

The condition was to be fixed through surgery but luckily she did not go through it.
“We were lucky we found out earlier so I was told I had to undergo surgery to get rid of it and give ourselves a period and wait and now the baby would have at least enough space to carry to maybe 30 something weeks and don’t have to get to 40. I remember I panicked and I said I’m not gonna do this,” she said.

“It took a while, I can’t remember how many years it was and every day I used to pray and ask God ‘what is too hard for you? I don’t have to have this surgery if you want you can make that thing elastic by whatever miracle but just make it elastic, create space.”

Bien Baraza’s wife Chiki Kuruka has for the first time revealed that she met her husband through a friend, Emmanuel Jambo.

Chiki showered Emmanuel, a celebrity and award-winning photographer with love, thanking him for being the best friend one can ever have.

In a length post, the fitness coach-cum-radio presenter wrote,

A story of friendship. Dear @emmanueljambo, You are the force behind so much of what is my life. You introduced me to my husband, you drove me for hours to find my dog, you found us our house. I have cried to you countless times, and laughed with you even more. You are to me, the definition of goodness in this world, and to say I love you doesn’t even come close to the admiration I have for your heart, the respect I have for your soul and the excitement I have for the blessings that will certainly come your way. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, my family. More Whiskey, more awful dancing, and more picture perfect moments to come. ❤.
