Celebs who have openly talked about having parents/siblings with disability

Disability is frowned upon in the African setting but these celebrities have broken the stigmatization by talking about it in public.

Hard as it may be, they have opened about having disabled children or siblings some even parents, narrating how the journey has been.

  1. Anne Ngugi

Media personality Anne Ngugi has a daughter who is battling hydrocephalus. Speaking about it she says

“She understands she is different from other kids. When we go out to mentor people, she is able to express herself very well. As a mother, my dream is to see her stand strong on her own, even when I am not there, and never allow anyone to point fingers at her, telling her she is different. Raising a child with special needs has not been easy for Anne, but she does not complain about it.”

She adds that

“Sometimes you go to places with her and that is when I feel the weight that she is different from others but for her, Angel has developed a thick skin and, therefore, she copes. I have always accepted because I know there is always a reason.

You have to accept the fact that your child is special and start looking for solutions, as well as try so hard to love that child because no one will love your child more than you.”

2. Yvonne Okwara

Yvonne recently lost her brother who was deafblind almost all his life. In a previous interview she opened up about it saying that

“In the 60s, while expectant, my mother contracted German Measles. It has no symptoms. By the time she was giving birth to her first born son, there were complications. Mental retardation, and deafblindness started to set in.

 She tried everything, no door was unknocked, multiple surgeries, consultations. She talked to every doctor in the country. All of them, including, the professors, told her they had travelled far and wide and had NEVER seen anyone like my brother.

That he would not live beyond his 5th birthday. Or his 10th. Nor his 12th. Albert Okwara is still here! 50 years later! What a journey it has been.”

yvonne-okwara

Adding that

“Friends have fallen along the way, those that could make the choice did so and exited our lives. Called it a curse. To the entire community! I won’t name names but he knows himself!

The world of disability is a lonely one! The road has been lined with tears, pain, dashed hopes. But it has also had wonderful lessons that have made me who I am today! Let me explain, Albert is deafblind. He does not see, speak or hear.”

3. Emmy Kosgei

Female artiste Emmy Kosgei is another Kenyan celebrity who has openly talked about having a family member battling disability.

Emmy’s dad is bound to a wheel chair after his limbs were affected by polio years ago. In an earlier post, the artiste expressed her amazement at the fact that her mum over looked her dad’s disability .

She says that

“My mum is my inspiration, I have grown to see my mum achieve much having brought us up having been married to my dad who is physically challenged.

I am still amazed at how she was able to overlook my dad’s physical disabilities , and marry him  even with the pressure from the society and his family on what she had seen in such a man.”

Adding that

“She  married him and she has stood by him even as he studied at the university, we were also in school but she has been there through it all”

He is known for his love for athletics, having ran in so many races but it has not been easy for him.

Speaking about the day he lost his sight, Henry recollects how in March 1995 while he was having breakfast, numbness struck him.

One day in March 1995, Henry was having breakfast when a piece of ugali he was holding suddenly fell off his left hand, followed by crippling numbness on the same hand.

“I was confused and could only manage a stammer. I was scared.”

At the nearby Thogoto Mission Hospital, doctors could not find anything wrong with Henry. Doctors at the Kenyatta National Hospital later discovered that Henry had suffered a stroke.

That was the beginning of his ordeal. One day, Henry woke up to his mother’s loud shouts. She was wondering why he had overslept, forgetting to milk the cows. Henry remembers:

“We argued with mum. I tried to tell her it was still dark while she insisted that the sun was up. I reached for the light switch but couldn’t see anything and concluded there was a power blackout. Mum thought I was just being lazy.”

Soon, his mother realized that her son was not putting on a show and they went back to Thogoto Hospital.

Several tests revealed that he had lost his sight and that nothing could be done to reverse the condition. At 21, Henry had become blind.

“I got into a depression,” says Henry.

Family appeal to Justice Maraga to help end 34-year land dispute

An 85-year old widow and her family in Makueni have appealed to Chief Justice David Maraga, Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and the Attorney General to help them end a 34-year land dispute.

Mbwele Muoki and her two sons say they have nowhere to bury their kin after their land was illegally possessed by a stranger who has declined to move from the land despite several court rulings declaring that they are the lawful owners.

She says the 11.3-hectare land located in Kaseve village near Wote town in Makueni subcounty was allegedly sold at a cost of Sh29,000 to an influential son of a former Chief, Mutie Kioko in 1984 by her stepson, Muli Muoki who went missing since then.

“I have never lived a happy life since the demise of my husband, I have even been forced to bury my two sons in borrowed burial sites as I am unable to access my land,” said Mbwele.

One of her sons, Waviti Muoki was buried at Makueni Cemetery and another, John Muoki was buried at a relative’s home at Malivani village, near the disputed land.

When The Star visited the widow at Tamu Tamu village in Kathonzweni subcounty, the mother of five looked sad and troubled as she narrated how she has lived a miserable life since the death of her husband.

“I left home with my children after my stepson started threatening me and my co-wife who has since died; I later learned that the land was fraudulently bought by Mutie who has been disobeying court rulings,” she said.

She went on: “He would come home drunk late at night and forcefully pick items from the house to go and sell. When I question him he turns violent, I had no choice but to leave,” Mbwele said.

Her three sons who were little boys when she left their home said their plans to get married have been unsuccessful because of the land dispute.

“I have tried to approach multiple women but they run away once they discover am leaving on a borrowed land, just like my young brothers,” said Muendo Muoki, her 50-year-old firstborn.

According to court documents in her possession bearing both judgments and rulings from various high courts, Mbwele is the lawful owner of the land but the trespasser has never moved or evicted.

The sickly woman says that once a ruling is made, Mutie swiftly moves to court to block the eviction.

Am afraid if justice is not fully served, I may die before I settle in my land and that is his intention when applying the delaying tactics,” said Mbwele

In 2009, a certificate of confirmation of grant issued by Justice Isaac Lenaola seating at the Machakos High Court shows that Mbwele Muoki and Denis Muoki were given a grant of representation to the estate of the late Muoki Muasya.

Another ruling delivered in 2010 by the Environment and Land court in Machakos indicates that Mutie Kioko, the defendant purchased the piece of land from strangers and not from the lawful owner, Muoki Muasya the deceased and that he should claim a refund of his money from those who received it.

“In any event, Mutie Kioko has no lawful interests in this estate and he can pursue a refund of his money from those that illegally received it,” reads the ruling delivered by Justice Oscar Angote.

Mutie filed defense and counterclaim that was dismissed by the court soon after the complainant filed a case seeking his eviction.

In the premise, the application by the applicant doesn’t establish a prima facie case with a possibility of success. The applicant is unlawful and ought to have moved out latest by 2009 when the court found his claim over the property unlawful and invalid,” read part of a ruling after the applicant’s counterclaim.

Seven years ago, the complainant had to seek court intervention to help bury one their kin whose body had stayed at Kenyatta National Hospital mortuary for 1 year due to lack of burial site after the defendant allegedly chased them with bows and arrows when they attempted to access the land in question for burial preparation.

We took the body that we had moved from Kenyatta National Hospital for burial to Makueni Level -4 hospitals where it was preserved temporarily to obtain a court order,” Mbwele said.

Later, the remains of Dennis Muoki, Mbwele’s stepson were laid to rest at the disputed land in presence of heavy police officers after Machakos high court ruled that the defendant was the unlawful owner of the disputed land.

A case that was filed by the defendant in fresh counterclaims will be heard on 27th March next year and Machakos high court.

Mbwele now wants the Chief Justice and other government agencies to intervene and help her end the land dispute that has dragged on for 34 years.

She also wants the defendant stopped from making further applications and developing the land.

She hopes that justice will favour her as she is the only living appellant.

Patanisho: Nilimchapa dadangu akatoweka nyumbani (Audio)

Leo katika kitengo cha patanisho na Gidi na Ghost, mwanaume mmoja alitaka kupatanishwa na dadake baada ya kumchapa na kumfanya aondoke nyumbani .
“Nilichapa dada yangu mkubwa ambaye tulikuwa kazi  kwa hoteli moja.
Shida ilianza kwa sababu dada yangu akipataa pesa hakuwa anamsaidia mama wala mimi ilhali mimi nikipata pesa nilikuwa namnunulia mama chakula, kumlipia nyumba na vitu za nyumba.”
Baadaye, dada yangu alipendana na kijana mmoja wa ploti tulikokuwa tunaishi.
Kijana huyo kwa jina Rodgers ,walikuwa hawamheshimu mama. Nilipomuuliza dadangu jambo hilo lilimkasirisha sana huku akisema kuwa mimi ni mdogo wake niachane na maisha yake.
Nilimchapa akatoweka na amekuwa hazungumzi nami.
