Amina Mude, the wife of KTN news anchor Ben Kitili has divulged details about their union.

Through a question and answer session on her Instagram page, Amina gave her followers the chance to ask any questions they might have about her life.

One of the most asked questions was on their different religious affiliations, an aspect that saw the couple face criticism after their marriage in 2018.

Speaking at the time, Kitili said that while the critics have a right to their opinion, they should not cross the line.

“To those who are not so welcoming, we forgive you… you have a constitutional right to your opinion… however, should any of you cross the line against the law- as I said, I ‘ll protect my family with my all,” he said.

Dealing with criticism

Responding to a follower, Amina, on the other hand, said that she does not condone criticism against her marriage.

I block all negative vybes,” she wrote.

Amina further revealed that even though their parents approve of the marriage, it was not easy.

She credited Kitili for being an ‘awesome’ guy, hence their different religious affiliations were a non-issue.

“Did you find it challenging, considering Ben is a Christian and you’re Muslim?” posed a fan, to which she responded saying that “religion wasn’t an issue to me, Ben is such an awesome guy so things just clicked.”

While affirming that she’s still a Muslim, Amina also said that they have already agreed on what religion their children will take.

Motherhood, weight loss

Born and raised in Nairobi, Amina, who delivered their second-born four months ago, admitted that taking care of two children can be quite a handful.

“It’s (motherhood) beautiful but sometimes very challenging because I’m not used to taking care of two human beings. Requires a lot of patience,” she wrote.

Amina also revealed that she weighed 110Kgs after giving birth, but she has shed it and now weighs 88Kgs, attributing the weight loss to dieting and working out.

“The mind is the most powerful tool, temptations are everywhere but I keep reminding myself that I need that body. Also, I try and avoid being around temptation.”

After getting engaged in 2015, Amina and Kitili wedded in November 2018 in a private ceremony at the Attorney General’s office. They later hosted their families, close friends and colleagues at a lavish wedding dinner at the Panari Hotel.

They couple is blessed with two children, Ruby Iman Nzembi Kitili and Roman Hami Kitili.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

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

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

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.”
