BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,18TH MAY 2019-Kenyans and especially on social platforms have continued to pass their congratulations messages to the celebrated gospel artists Kambua Manundu close to 24 hours after the revealed she had finally gotten pregnant after seven years of trying.
The singer has been married for seven years now to Jackson Mathu and had been childless since then. This attracted social media trolls and bullying which always left her stressed.
“There’s nothing I haven’t been told, from you must have aborted many children, go get yourself checked, ulirogwa na nani?” Kambua once said.
“I remember thinking, the reason why it angers me is because people don’t even know what your journey is like. They don’t know what you’re struggling with.
“They don’t know if you even what to have children, they don’t know if you can have children and there are so many people especially today who are struggling with infertility.
“It so unfortunate that we become such a culture of being so intrusive and putting people down. Shamming each other on things like that. I would wish that people would be sensitized. I have people who are close to me who might not be at the fore front like I am but who go through that everyday.”
When she went on her Instagram to break the news on Friday 17 May, 2019 many Kenyans her friends and foes alike wished her well and even encouraged her as well as celebrating her for the good news.
