Writer and clothing designer Beatrice Wambui Njuguna has passed away in California.

According to those who knew Wambui, she  initially would always find time to post inspirational messages on Facebook which later led her to writing a book. “At first, she wrote for the sake of writing,” a source familiar with her said. For the most part she said it was just a way of expressing herself and exercising the little lingual skills she had acquired over the years, she added.

Wambui said that the other reason she would write is probably because she got fascinated recording events, feelings, emotions or even intentions that have showed up in her heart, her body, her surroundings or her soul.

She wrote for fun, to discover, to explore, to recover and to express herself.

“I am however thankful that I can put letters together to form words, words to form sentences, sentences to form paragraphs and also put those paragraphs together to form stories,” Wambui told jambonewspot.com in an interview.

“I am also glad that I able to put those stories together to form chapters, put chapters together to form books and finally put books together to form volumes.” Wambui a former Dallas resident is grateful for the wonderful gift of her book titled Picking up the pieces . “My book Picking Up The Pieces was born out of all what I have been able to put together.”

Wambui added. When she began actively posting her devotions on her Facebook, she realized people were paying attention. They were reading and following through. She had one person tell her that he had been reading the posts out for her sister until he finally convinced her to open an Facebook account and befriend her. Another one told her of how a friend would come to her house bi-weekly to read posts from her page. Other people would inbox her and tell her how they are inspired by her stories. The most humbling was when at least four people decided to go back to school after reading her nursing school story.

In this book, she looks back in my life. She looks at the different experiences she has ever had. She recollects her joys, pains, the good, the bad and the ugly truths. She says this is the combo that makes her. Her failures and successes define who she is. Her life is a song that might have been sung in the midst of adversity, yet Glory is right here. “My tongue becomes like that of a skillful writer with a theme to rescue me from lifelessness. I slowly look at my crumbled life, bend and pick up the pieces,” she adds.

Former Churchill Show comedian David Kangogo, famously known as David The Student, has tested positive for Covid-19 just days after he had an altercation with a Caucasian couple in the United States of America.

The comedian, through his Facebook page, said he started feeling unwell and also exhibited the symptoms associated with the deadly virus on Friday before going for a test which turned positive.

“I got diagnosed with Covid-19. Now I am quarantined and I trust and believe I’ll get through this. Thank you all for the support I’ve been receiving. Thank you! Please stay safe, wear a mask, wash your hands and social distance,” he wrote.

Hᴇʏ ɢᴜʏs!

I ɢᴏᴛ ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsᴇᴅ ᴡɪᴛʜ ᴄᴏᴠɪᴅ 19 . I ɴᴏᴡ ᴀᴍ ǫᴜᴀʀᴀɴᴛɪɴᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ I ᴛʀᴜsᴛ ᴀɴᴅ ʙᴇʟɪᴇᴠᴇ I’ʟʟ ɢᴇᴛ ᴛʜʀᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜɪs! Tʜᴀɴᴋ…

Posted by David the Student on Monday, November 23, 2020

Kangogo, who relocated to the US in search of greener pastures in 2018, has been working as a Lyft driver.

Last week the comedian was in the news after an angry Lyft passenger hurled racial slurs at him after he asked the Caucasian couple who had requested for a ride to put on a mask.

In a disturbing video, which has since gone viral after it was shared by Al Jazeera, shows a passenger identified only as “Joe” erupting after Kangogo asked him to put his mask back on after taking it off during the ride.

The clip shows the man getting out of the car and unleashing verbal abuse toward the former comedian as his female companion looks on.

Kongogo then urged the man to keep abusing him as he keeps recording the incident.

David The Student told the couple to “just put on” their masks, but he wasn’t having it and even threatened to urinate inside the car, the video shows.

Kangogo, 30, told Newsweek the man ignored his first request to put his mask back on after taking it off during the ride. The company’s policy requires all passengers and drivers to don masks during the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said he called Lyft representatives following the incident and then went home.

“I couldn’t drive,” Kangogo told the outlet. “I was literally shaking.”

In a statement, Lyft confirmed the unidentified passenger had been permanently banned.

“There is no place for discrimination of any sort in the Lyft community, and this behavior is absolutely unacceptable,” the statement reads. “We have permanently removed the rider from the Lyft community and have been in touch with the driver to offer our support.”

Love, they say, is strange and can even bring perfect strangers together who would go on to live happily ever after. Listen to this:

A Kenyan woman’s cooking skills have earned her a husband all the way from the United State. Anna Nairobi has tells of how she met an American man on social media through a social media skills platform and the two ended up getting married.

In a message primarily meant for her mom but which somehow ended up on the Let’s Cook Kenyan Meals Facebook Group , she says it all started with the man liking photos of food she had posted on popular group.

“East meets West,” she captions one of her photos.

She explains how the man, a military officer who lives in Tennessee, USA,  expressed interest in learning how to prepare a certain meal she had posted on the group.

The two then started chatting and went on to date online for three years before they agreed to take their relationship to the next level. Then, as they say, the rest is history.

“I was working in Dubai, we got talking and fell in love. We dated online for three years,” says Anna.

She says after she returned to Kenya from Dubai in February this year, she realized that her fiancé  was dead serious about getting married and, in September, he  traveled to Kenya to meet her.

The lovebirds tied the knot in Kenya  on earlier this month.

The Group, which boasts of over 2 million members, can easily be described as the de facto Kenya online kitchen where anyone can discuss all manner of issues regarding food. Many members have continued to congratulate the lucky couple.

Naomi Kinguri wrote:  “Wherever true genuine love finds you.. no matter with whom or at what age, take it..it’s about you and the love of your life..let the villagers engage in gossip. They always do and you can’t stop you.”

A year after welcoming their first child, US-based Kenyan gospel singer Benachi and his wife have shown off their second baby bump.

Born Benson Ongachi and his wife, Joan Benachi, welcomed their baby girl Olivia Benachi, to the world in July 2019, who has since grown into an adorable baby girl.

One year down the line, the couple is already expecting baby number 2.

Baby number 2

This is after the two shared a beautiful video of a gorgeous Mrs Benachi walking the streets sweetly caressing her growing baby bump in loose, floral pants.

As she comes closer to the camera, she adorably places her hands around the bump that perfectly brings out the protruding belly.

The way she walks along the streets, gracefully and in excitement, it is undeniable that her joy is beyond explanation and she cannot just wait to hold her second bundle of joy in her arms.

She teases fans posing;

“Mommy of two ❣️. Olivia has a sibling coming ….. guess the gender pink or blue 💖💙.”

Mrs Benachi and baby Olivia

As her hubby on his end sweetly pens;

BREAKING NEWS! Olivia has a sibling coming up! … guess if it’s a boy or a girl!.

A question that saw many lean towards the gender of a baby boy, reasons best known to the them as the couple holds back the real gender of their unborn baby.

Messages of congratulations, warm wishes, love and adoration were sent their way with fans and fellow gospel artistes including Kambua excited for the couple.

The US-based couple that tied the knot in the USA in 2016, have relatively kept a low profile of their lives. With Benachi recently making headlines, following his grand purchase of a two-storey mansion and a Chevrolet luxury ride, taking many by surprise.

Sharing a photo of his double blessings in an enviable photo in what he called ‘Home sweet Home’ in Atlanta, Georgia.

It is all Congratulations to the beautiful, young couple!
