Tanzania’s Kilwa South Member of Parliament Selemani Bungara, of “Uliskia wapi” fame has lost his Kilwa South parliamentary seat in the ust concuded general election.

Bungara, a second time legislator who vied on an Alliance for Change and Transparency (ACT Wazalendo) party lost to Ally Kasinge of ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).

The former District Commissioner of Wanging’ombe in Njombe region garnered 22,521 against Bungara’s 10,096 votes.

Bungara was vying for the parliamentary seat for the third time and was first elected to represent Kilwa South Constituency in 2005.

The MP became the subject of discussion on social media recently following remarks he made during a press conference, remarks which have been turned into numerous memes with the catch phrase ‘Uliskia Wapi’ being mutilated to ‘Oolisia Wapi’ and even printed on merchandise in Kenya.

During the press conference whose video went viral, the outgoing Kilwa South MP was addressing claims that he had joined President John Pombe Magufuli’s Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).

He went on to announce that he had instead joined the ACT Wazalendo party instead.

“We ulisikia wapi!? We ulisikia wapi!? Mheshimiwa ulisikia wapi!? Niliingia katika Chama Cha ACT nataka muelewe hivo,” Bungara said then animatedly.

On Wednesday, as Tanzanians went to the polls, Kenyans wished Bungara the very best in the general election, but it did little to help him get another term.

This is what they wrote then:

Black African wrote, “As a Kenyan I strongly wish MP Seleman Bungara all the best and beg Kilwa South constituents please vote him back.#TanzaniaDecides2020.”

Sakwa J.M. Sakwa commented, “As #TanzaniaDecides2020 on my own behalf and all the memelords in Kenya, I wish our favorite MP Seleman Bungara of Kilwa South Consistency all the best.”

A police officer in Bomet County was on Wednesday, December 2 arrested for tearing and throwing into a river BBI signatures collection book.

Peter Langat is said to have committed the act in Lelekwet Village, Kipreres Sub-Location in Bomet East Sub-County.

According to area assistant chief, Robert Katam, the police officer came to where he (Katam) was overseeing the BBI signature-collection exercise at 1:30pm, and requested to be allowed to sign on the book.

Upon receiving the book, Langat is alleged to have torn it apart. Two pages of serial numbers 0685180 and 0685183 were completely ripped.

Langat, thereafter, threw the book in a nearby river, a police report states.

Assistant chief Robert Katam managed to retrieve the book, and went to Longisa Police Station where he reported the matter, which was filed at 2:27pm Wednesday.

“Police officers, in the company of the assistant chief, rushed to the home of the said-officer and arrested Langat, who appeared very drunk at the time,” says a police report recorded under the OB Number 10/2/12/2020.

“The motive as to why the officer committed the act was unknown,” adds the report.

Langat refused to reveal his service number, only saying that he was attached to a Bungoma police post.

Police say they are investigating his claim.

How I shared my husband with my cousin: Nairobi woman

Thirty-eight-year-old Caro Nduti — a Nairobi resident — says she has seen it all in marriage. She was loved, she was deceived, she was cheated on, she was mistreated, and she was treated with contempt. Her only wrongdoing? She loved too much.

Nduti’s love story dates back to early 2000s. She was a teenager studying in a Nairobi college when she fell in love with her childhood friend. Nduti and her flame grew up together and attended the same church a better part of their younger lives.

In 2002, Nduti and her now-ex-husband joined different colleges, but the short-distance did not stop a beautiful love affair between them from blossoming.

Nduti recounts regularly paying her then-boyfriend visits at the institution he was learning at.

The two would, later, move in together.

“My lover begged me to get pregnant by him before I completed my studies. He said he feared that I would break up with him after completing my college education,” Nduti told BBC Swahili reporter Anne Ngugi.

“I loved him so much. At the time, I was naïve and young. I accepted to get pregnant,” said Nduti.

Nduti delivered her first baby, a son, a few months after completing her college education. She said her love life was so solid to the extent her boyfriend had already introduced her to his family as the woman he would marry.

“On my graduation day, my boyfriend attended the ceremony alongside his family members. After the ceremony ended, he took me to his home accompanied by his relatives. I felt loved,” she said.

Her first-born child was given birth to in December 2003, she said.

“My boyfriend was loving, committed and just the perfect man for me at the time,” said Nduti.

In 2006, she gave birth to her second child, also a son. However, Nduti says, she noted her husband had started behaving strangely.

“I realised he was involved in several extra-marital affairs,” she said.

Being only 22 years old at the time, Nduti said she did not have the courage to confront her husband.

“Despite his infidelity, he satisfactorily provided for me. I thought I shouldn’t complain, and I always believed that a woman must persevere in her marriage,” she said.

Nduti said her partner’s unfaithfulness was an open book, and she knew nearly all the women he slept with.

“Some of the women he had sexual relations with, were well-known to me. I would eat and drink with them in entertainment joints. I think my husband thought I was too timid to call him out on his philandering habits,” said Nduti.

The cheating, she said, got so bad that her husband began a sexual relationship with her female cousin. Nduti and the cousin grew up together in one homestead after Nduti’s mother died when she was 7 years old. It was Nduti’s cousin’s mother who took her [Nduti] in following her mother’s death.

The mother-of-two says the cousin would often visit her at her [Nduti’s] Nairobi home after she [cousin] completed her college education. It was during one of those visits that Nduti’s husband began an extramarital affair with his wife’s cousin-sister.

“I remember my husband became so shameless to the point he would call me and tell me that he won’t return home as he would be spending the night out with my cousin,” said Nduti.

The distressed and disappointed wife said her cousin also became arrogant, and would verbally abuse her often.

“Her insults were hurting, too gross. When I showed my husband some of my cousin’s messages, he would do nothing to reprimand her,” she said, adding: “At one point, he told me he saw no reason why my cousin shouldn’t abuse me.”

The illicit relationship between Nduti’s cousin and her [Nduti’s] husband was so open to the extent that the cousin’s mother got to know. Of course, the mother expressed her disapproval of her daughter’s relationship with her sister’s husband, but Nduti’s cousin would hear none of it.

Nduti said in 2008, she moved out of her matrimonial home, but her husband convinced her into reuniting with him.

Now, Nduti, her husband and her cousin lived together in one house.

“It hurt me, but I chose to live such kind of a life for the sake of the children,” she said.

Nduti and her husband would fall out, make peace; fall out, make peace, and the cycle would recur. At the time, her sister had already conceived twice, and given birth twice to two girls sired by Nduti’s husband.

Nduti claims as she concentrated on ensuring her husband’s relationship with her cousin ground to a halt, “he was busy kick-starting sexual relationships with every house-girl I was hiring”.

The mother-of-two said she felt she had had enough, and nothing was going to change her decision to leave her spouse.

She eventually moved out of her matrimonial home, never to look back, saying: “I have forgiven my husband and cousin, but the emotional damage that man inflicted on me, has made me harbour bitterness and self-hatred”.

“It has taken me a lot of time to appreciate myself and perceive myself as a beautiful woman. I really wished I would raise my children with their father in the picture, but he was too unfaithful to a fault,” said Nduti.

She advises women going through similar experiences to exercise self-love, forgiveness and never hesitate to bolt out of a toxic relationship.
