Media personality Willis Raburu and his wife Mary are not bowing to pressure by society to have children.

Speaking during an interview with Word Is, Willis opened up on how he and his wife deal with the constant reminder and pressure to have kids.

The Citizen TV news anchor gave all the credit to his wife for teaching him the virtue of patience and not heeding to unnecessary pressure.

“One of the greatest things my wife has taught me is to be happy at whatever state we are in. So we don’t really pay attention to pressures.

“However, I will say this, society does put a lot of pressure on people to bring forth children and it’s okay, but we all have to be sensitive to people’s feelings because you never know what they have been through or are going through. We must, therefore, articulate our desires with a dose of sensitivity,” he said.

Willis however admitted that he is ready to be a father at any time.

“I am looking forward to the day I will hear a little angel call me daddy. My father has taught me so much and I have had such an example from him, so I am eager to one day build on that with the help of God to be the best father I can be,” he said.

After his engagement to his former girlfriend was called off, Willis moved on and tried his luck at love once again which ended with him marrying the love of his life at a private wedding in 2017.

Honeymoon disaster

Their beautiful wedding was unfortunately accompanied by a not so rosy honeymoon as Willis described it as a disaster.

“Our honeymoon was a disaster. I was paying for our honeymoon on the day of our wedding. And, making it worse, I sent half the money that was needed because I did not have enough cash with me on that day,” said Raburu.

The destination didn’t help either as the lovebirds had to share their bed with insects and crawling animals.

“This room had a bed that was too high… I had to literally climb it. And, even if you think of the activity at the junction, there were some things we couldn’t do on that bed. The room also had millipede’s colored black and red.  They could appear anywhere. You could sleep and wake up, and see the millipedes on the frame of the bed,” Mary narrated.

“There was this day that a black animal resembling a monitor lizard just got into the room. We went to complain to the hotel owners – Italians, but they did not take any meaningful action. Every other time I was just scared,” Mary added.

Willis said he could see disappointment on his wife’s face but could not do anything to make it better.

“It was chaos! I was like: ‘I have brought somebody’s daughter here, and on our first day, she wants to cry… And you know on top of that… how do you say it in a good way…. She was in the zone. So, there was no activity at the junction… So, ni kupendana tu like a brother and sister oh.

“Some other times you’d hear some sounds in the seat. The sounds were akin to claws scratching the seats. The hotel attendants did not help us much, even when we called them. We were forced to move the seat outside the room, and mark you, the time was 1 am,” Mary continued.

“We used to put towels on the lower opening between the door and the floor to prevent crawling creatures from getting into the room,” Raburu explained.

“The room also had snails. That summarizes our honeymoon experience; it was chaos,” he concluded.

Despite being popular on social media, Willis and Mary have been able to keep their relationship away from the limelight.

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. ❤.
