One month after the demonetization of the older series Sh1000 notes, some members of the public are still chancing upon the now-valueless notes that they had forgotten about.

Just the day, a 60-year-old man identified as Julius Mboga from Sirondho village in Gem, Siaya County pleaded with Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge to help him exchange Sh500,000 worth of the old 1,000 notes with new ones.

Another law-abiding Kenyan citizen who is counting her losses, albeit small, is celebrated gospel singer Wahu.

The ‘Sweet Love’ singer took to Instagram last night to share her predicament with her over 990k followers after suffering a Sh2000 loss. She said she found the two Sh1,000 notes in a jacket and that she was happy for a moment before reality dawned on her.

“Just found this in a jacket.. I was happy for a moment 😭😭😭. Did this happen to anyone else?” she posed as fans shared their own experiences.

Citizen TV news anchor Lulu Hassan commented: “😂😂😂😂😂😂.”

Another netizen wrote: “I found 5k. I have kept it hoping they will give us another chance to take them to the bank like they do while we voting.”

“How now??? Ati nisahau 2k kwa mfuko ghai. Impossible,” said another.

Another amused netizen wrote: “😂😂😂😂😂😂 keep it and show to your grandkids when they will be around. 🤣🤣”

A fifth fan teased Wahu’s hiding skills: “Kuficha nayo”

“Me aki, 6k and I was jumping up to the ceiling only to remember….. Ni zilizopendwa😭😭😭,” said @am_patie.

Radio personality Massawe Japanni suggested how Wahu can possibly use the old notes: “Karatasi ya njugu sasa🤣🤣”

IG user @Edithngugi painfully recalled: “I found 6 of them😭😭😭😭”

One @miss_anavaka wondered: “Eiiish you mean you can forget 2k in a jacket? Mimi ata 20 bob siwezi sahau anywhere😂😂”

“Happened to me too. I won’t even disclose the amount but the pain was real😰😰😰,” another said.

 

“Nyi ndo mlificha pesa zimeanza kupatikana 😂😂😂😂😂🙌,” wrote Kareh.

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.

Meanwhile, The Oyster Bay at Valley Arcade in Nairobi will tomorrow host the Acoustic, Brunch, Bubbly and Jazz show. It will feature special performances by

and Aaron Rimbui.

As for Aaron, who specialises in the piano and keyboard, some of his popular songs are ‘Simama’, ‘Hafungi Macho’, ‘Karibu’ and ‘Freedom’.  The show starts at 11am and ends at 8pm. According to the organisers, all Covid-19 safety protocols will be observed during the show.

Event has been sponsored by Classic FM and Smooth FM, in conjunction with Oyster Bay. Entrance is Sh3,500 per person (Inclusive of Brunch and Champagne).

Meanwhile, veteran Ohangla musician Tony Nyadundo will next Friday perform during a special Ohangla show at the Treasure Gardens in Kilimani, Nairobi (Opposite Kilimani Primary School).  Nyadundo’s hit songs include ‘Ndoa ya Machozi’ and ‘Isanda Gi Hera’. It will be a welcome back show to his fans after a long break. Show starts at 2pm and ends at 8pm.

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. ❤.
