Long battle

Unknown to many, the TV sensation has been battling slip discs in her lower spine for a solid 2 years now, that have not only caused her excruciating pain but a persistent one.

Pain, that she had to bear with before our screens and while with her friends – a pain only known to her. More often than not, she put on her brave face but only she knew what she was really going through.

Putting on a brave face at work, with friends and how it changes your life, the mind and how exhausting and limiting it is. Always lurking in the background as you try to go about with your life. One day I’ll write about what it’s like living with chronic pain. Every day.

She tried to hold it together, to bear the pain, to wait just a little longer with hope that it would soon be gone, but even drugs proved weak, physiotherapy was not working at all and she decided it was time she had that spinal surgery done.

Quick recovery to her!

PHOTOS: I missed job opportunities because I wasn’t slim – sexy KBC presenter Ray Manyara

Published

on

Body shaming seems to be the order of the day on social media and pubic figures are the most targeted.

Milly Chebby, Lynda Nyangweso, Neomi Nganga, Yummy Mummy and Sandra Dacha aka Siprosa are among the many who’ve been body shammed and they campaign for body positivity.

KBC presenter Regina Ray Manyara has revealed that she was recently body shammed by a woman.

She also narrated how she couldn’t secure a job in the media because they were hiring slim women only.

‘SOME LADY CALLED ME FAT….yes
Anyway other than it making me question like who asked for your opinion?
I went back to years, while I was starting my career where for one to anchor/become a TV presenter required one to be slim fit!( perception silent clauses) I was left out of the qualifying list often on account of body size…but here I am today-Doubling as a reporter and newscaster. Long story short…If you are concerned about my weight or anyone’s ( seek them out personally only if you have a remedy!)
Besides, if my size doesn’t bother me, why should it bother you?
*GO FIND WHO HURT YOU*
#bodyshamingiswrong
#bodyshamming IS real!’ she posted.

Check out photos of the beautiful Ray Manyara

Published

on

Media personality and content creator Anita Nderu has left tongues wagging after coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community via a tweet.

This she did via the tweet below.

‘I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+.’

 Below are some of the reactions

@MatthewMuhindi: Yeah lesbian couples can get kids @AnitaNderu, you can use the IVF method in vertro fertilization ..

In this option, one partner provides the eggs, which are fertilized with donor sperm, and the other carries the pregnancy… All the best. 

@Jwmungai: No one should be judged or accused of his or her sexual orientation…. Everyone has a right to what h/she thinks is right.

@Sesyline_KE: Funny Kenyans don’t know Lesbian couples can have kids, am happy for Anita, I really don’t mind who people choose to be with I hope in the future things change.

@Josefmasta: Whichever way you describe it a man will be involved even if it’s just donating sperms.

@Out_look470: For me and my body I shall always do what the Bible says,hakuna mahali tumeambiwa eti Sarah saw her sister and she bore her a son named Isaac. Hakuna!
