‘I release you to have children…’ Kambua almost gave up her marriage over childlessness

Published

on

Gospel singer Kambua says she was ready to let her husband go and get another woman who would give him children.

Kambua is one strong woman in the eyes of most of us but her faith has been tested in so many ways.

Kambua got married to her husband, pastor and businessman Jackson Mathu in 2012 and since then, she waited for seven years before she could hold a baby in her hands.

Speaking in a recent YouTube interview with Waiting Wombs, Kambua says as a believer, she got to a point her faith was tested and she was not always consistent in believing in what God could do.

“I did get to a place of complete defeat of, okay am out of options. I told God now, whatever it will be,” she said. “I completely let go of trying to control the situation and completely knowing that it didn’t matter when God would do it and how he would do it. I didn’t know if it was going to be ten years later. But I am okay in you. Use me as I am.”

The mother of one says that although her baby came and she is happy about it, the biggest miracle was accepting herself as enough.

“The baby came and hallelujah and I praise the Lord for that but for me, as Kambua the biggest miracle was finding Kambua as enough in God.”

She went to many hospitals and all answers were the same and frustrating.

“For many years we lived in the grey in the sense that any medical person we met and consulted we got very vague answers and that is one frustrating thing about the fertility journey, you meet specialists who told us there is nothing wrong, keep trying…”
“In Nov 2018 is when we finally got it in black and white and we finally knew this is the condition.
“It broke me in a way that I did not expect. I wanted to know but I wasn’t ready to know.”

Kambua recounts the days she visited her doctor and broke the news to her about her condition. She had already given up in marriage and she says she was ready to release her husband so he could get children with another person.

“I remember, I was in my doctor’s office and she is such a God sent woman, she gave me the time to get together. We had done this so many times like I was probably expecting not a big deal answer kinda thing.”

She was alone when she left the doctor’s appointment and she called her husband who asked her where she was but Kambua says she lied to him that she was heading to the salon.

“He knew where I was going but I told him I am going to the salon. I got home and I was sobbing and showed him the results and I remember him saying, this is what the medical report has said? Okay but what has God said about us. He was so calm.”

Her husband loved kids all along and so the devil was speaking to Kambua to divorce him.

“The enemy spoke to me loudly that night that my husband needs another woman who can give him children and so when I get home, I am going to tell him its okay, ‘I release you to have children because it is not fair for me to hold you back. So I had my little speech planned and he is here calmly telling me whose report will you believe,” she narrated.

Kambua added that after she told her husband about the medical report, they prayed and that was her moment of release.

“It was when I realised that Kambua can not do anything to fix it but God can in the way that He will.”

That was November 2018 and in December 2018, Kambua says she conceived.

“I remember, my doctor had told me to go back and discuss the options that I would use, I got positive pregnancy tests and she was like Kambua, your God is amazing.
“I had people say things like you are rich, why can’t you go for IVF, very thoughtless and insensitive things from people I know and others I don’t know.”

IVF (In vitro fertilisation) is a process of fertilisation where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body, in vitro. The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory.
Kambua welcomed her son in August last year.

Man who married at 21 after wife rejected him thrice breaks down 11 years love

Published

on

You have often heard the wise saying marriage is not a bed of roses and going by the rising divorce numbers in Kenya, this statement could not be any truer.

By the end of 2019, Milimani Law Courts’ civil registry, which registers divorces recorded 1,109 divorces and in January and February 2020 alone, 244 divorces had already been filed.

But for Robert and Lucy, they chose to stick to each other even in moments when divorce seemed like it was the easy way out and their love story left many inspired that indeed, marriage works.

How they met

Speaking to philanthropist Ndungu Nyoro in his popular segment dubbed #inspirationThursday, Robert admitted he grew up a shy boy and was even convinced, at some point in his life, that he was never meant for relationship and love.

“I also had this deep feeling it had to do with my physical appearance, as I was really thin and broke as well. Honestly, it was tough to get a girlfriend,” he narrated.

His love for Lucy was not hard to come by given they grew up in the same hood in Kayole, but they lost contact when his now wife’s family relocated to another area.

The universe was definitely conspiring for them to be together because they both bumped into each other in 2007 in a matatu and exchanged contacts to keep in touch.

By this time, the young Robert was not stable financially to afford expensive dates but would invite the young lady into his place for lunch and dinner.

He had also started getting attracted to his beautiful childhood friend, who was a small business owner in Ngara by then.

Robert gathered couraged and asked Lucy to his girlfriend and he was instead slapped with a huge “NO” by the lady who wanted to concentrate on building herself first.

“I asked her for the second time and she said ‘NO’ and that it couldn’t happen. My spirit was dampened and I felt like there was something so wrong with me,” he said.

Undeterred, Robert tried the third time to ask Lucy to be his and, your guess is as good as mine, he was met with another rejection.

They both started a studio business together and it was during their interactions in the shop that the relentless young man popped the question again and fortunately, the lady accepted to be his girlfriend.

Marriage and challenges

Not long after that that the smitten couple, aged 20, for Lucy and Robert 21, tied the knot in a traditional wedding in 2009

They said though their parents were concerned about their young ages, they still supported them.

Their first hurdle in marriage was finances since their studio was not earning them much and secondly, Lucy had a troublesome first pregnancy.

After the birth of their child, Robert felt forsaken since Lucy’s attention was for the baby only and gradually, they started falling apart and they would even go for days without talking to each other.

Heated arguments

One time, when they had an argument, they almost completely gave up on the union but lucky for them, a neighbour intervened and they talked and decided to forgive each other.

Now, 11 years together and parents to two adorable boys, the couple are business owners of a consultancy firm in Kigali, Rwanda and other businesses and the best part is that their love has never been so alive as it is.

For them, they do not regret marrying young and they said communication and openness have been some of the values that have kept their love strong for more than a decade.

“We don’t keep secrets, we prefer being open to each other. When it comes to finances and running the business, she does the budgets and planning,” he said.
