Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika’s traditional marriage to her businessman Sam Mburu elicited mixed reactions on social media as members of the public congratulated her.

Platforms lit up with political, social and religious humour as Kenyans touched on matters, including the ongoing debate on the Building Bridges Initiatives (BBI) report and the 2022 General Election.

Ms Kihika, popularly known as ”The Iron Lady of Nakuru”, got married at a colourful event on Saturday at her family’s ranch in Marmanet, Laikipia County.

“I salute Susan for such a decision. Balancing a relationship and making it lead to marriage while in politics is not easy. She deserves a man who will treat her like a queen. That is what most ladies long for. Chase your dreams and the rest will follow,” wrote Rose Waithira.

Deputy President William Ruto, who was part of the senator’s dowry negotiation team, said he was delighted that his best friends were uniting in marriage.

“Congratulations Senator Susan Kihika and Samuel Mburu on this magnificent milestone. Our best wishes and love as you build your lives together,” Dr Ruto wrote on Twitter.

But one Perm Nuric made a reference to the DP’s Hustler Movement, saying he could have convinced his ally Ms Kihika to marry a ”hustler”.

“When it comes to things to do with the heart you belong to the millionaires’ cocoon. You have seriously disappointed and discouraged boda-boda and mkokoteni (handcart) people.”

Wheelbarrows and motorcycles

While pushing the ”hustler” narrative in his political tours in various parts of the country, DP Ruto has been distributing motorcycles and wheelbarrows to youths, saying they can use them to earn a living.

Fred Odhiambo said: “I hope you have gifted them with wheelbarrows for their next lives, Sir.”

Mwalimu Juma said: “BBI has made the man pay dowry. BBI is the way to go. We hustlers support it fully since we have started seeing its fruits.”

Many politicians graced Ms Kihika’s ceremony, among them  MPs Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Caleb Kositany (Soy), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu) and Moses Kuria (Gatundu South).

Senator Kihika’s foe-turned-best friend, Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri, was the master of ceremony.

Satatu Junior said: “We’re now waiting for Aisha Jumwa’s dowry negotiations so that we know she is also not alone.”

Jaherana Wake gave advice on marriage, telling Ms Kihika, “karibu (welcome) into a new life. Here you must be submissive, show respect, love your [husband], give him peace, trust him, else  [you won’t make it. Marriage] is not for the faint-hearted.”

Piti Kariuki told DP Ruto to drink muratina (traditional Kikuyu brew) and promised to take him five litres of it during his swearing-in ceremony at Uhuru Park in 2022.

Mr Kariuki hopes the DP will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta come the next General Election.

Children

Some members of the public, such as one ”‘Joshua The Lion”, quoted Biblical passages and references in their messages of good wishes to the couple.

The Twitter user said: “Congratulations to our chemolel (the beautiful one) for making that important decision in life.  What God has put together let no man put asunder. We can now elect you as a running mate.”

BW Sarah wrote: “Congratulations to big sister Susan on your colourful ruracio (traditional dowry ceremony). He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord.

While noting the importance of getting married when ready, Kennedy Rotich Kibet said, “This is what novelist Ngugi wa Thiong’o meant when he wrote the novel Ngahika Ndenda (I will marry when I want).”

Awiti Flame Qipkirui regretted that he will not fulfill his dream of proposing to Ms Kihika.

“I wanted to propose to Susan. Too bad. I didn’t know she is a married lady,” he said.

Ken Kabix summed it all by urging the couple to get more children.

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. ❤.
