“As much as we talk about Kenya being known, Kenya has been put on the map by our athletes and by our sportsmen and women and that’s you,” the President said.

“Make us proud. We shall pray for you and we shall be glued to our television screens as you challenge the rest of the continent and prove why Kenya is the pride of Africa,” he added.

President Kenyatta advised the team of 234 athletes to be disciplined, patriotic and to uphold team spirit so as to succeed in the competition.

“We ask you to be disciplined, we ask you to be patriotic, we ask you to be team players because there is a difference between an individual athlete and a team. As an individual, you can win but your win will not be as successful as when your team wins. Do your part, train hard, be focused, play fair and play clean,” the President counselled.

“For the first time, 17 of these disciplines will serve as the Tokyo Olympic games 2020 qualifiers. That is why we are so expectant from the team that is going to Morocco,” the CS said.

She pointed out that the team to the 12th African games is the largest and most diverse the country has ever presented at continental games.

Amb Mohamed informed the President that the Kenyan beach volleyball team will tonight play a semi-final game against Nigeria.

Woman Crying

Mother-in-laws are said to be cold-hearted, unkind, unwelcoming, cruel, strict, abusive and even crooked creatures from hell. Most of them are the kind of species you’ll never want to interact with on this earth. They make their daughter-in-laws’ lives miserable and if you thought the many sad tales you’ve heard about them are wrong, wait until you read the story I’m about to write.

There are some who are good (30%) but the rest (70%) are devils. From mistreating, torturing and being abusive to their daughter-in-laws, mother-in-laws are the reason why many marriages don’t last for long. She will turn you into a slave, gossip mate and use you to harm/hurt others, woe unto you if you fail to abide by her rules.

Well, a Kenyan woman has left many shocked after she revealed the worst things her mother-in-law has ever done to her.

The woman is a mother of three adorable boys, but her mother-in-law is not happy with her. She is still following the old traditions where one was expected to give birth to children of both genders or else, one was excommunicated or forced to ‘marry a younger woman who would bear her husband children’ so as to please the community.

This woman revealed that her mother-in-law has been mistreating her and calling her all sorts of names just because she doesn’t have a female child. The satanic mother-in-law recently pooped her doorstep and told her to wipe it using her hands because she “could not bear them a girl”.

“I have had enough of this world. I am a mOther of three boys. My mother-in-law has always insulted me because I don’t have a dAughter but this evening the worst has happened, she came and pooped at my doorstep and smeared some on the door and said “panguza hiyo sababu ulikataa kunizaa” (wipe that because you refused to bear us a daughter) and I believe that this is pure witChcraft. What should I do?’ wrote the stressful woman.

Ladies, have you encountered such mother-in-laws? How do you deal with them? Leave a comment in the comment box below.

Pastor Muiru’s daughter is not as popular as Preacher Kanyari’s daughter or the Kiuna’s, as she has always kept away from the public eye, and that’s why little is known about her.
