Businesswoman Anerlisa Muigai has called out her ex-husband Ben Pol over what she has termed as a growing habit of him taking advantage of her silence.

Anerlisa on her Instagram page said the Tanzanian singer has constantly used interviews to paint her in bad light which was different from what he sent her in texts.

"Ben I see you have really taken advantage of my silence for weakness... You've always had the right to tell the interviewer not to ask about me, why are you always making me look bad, yet you send me different from what you talk?" Anerlisa posed.

The Keroche heiress further dared the singer to share screenshots of their communication adding that she has had a lot to say except she chose to keep silent.

"If you are really a man I dare you to screenshot what you have been sending me since December 25 to January 4, I have a lot to say but I choose to be a lady, Its simple, stop talking about me!" Anerlisa said.

The reaction by Anerlisa was invoked by comments Ben Pol made in an interview where he said despite being married earlier he has not had an opportunity to enjoy marriage, unlike other couples.

Besides the cool photos and the good times on Instagram, I have not really enjoyed marriage like other couples.

Days after rising rapper Trio Mio wrote his final examination, the rapper has exuded confidence in the results which are due to be announced.

Trio has been receiving questions about what it feels like to complete school and whether he feels anxious about the results. He said he is prepared for whatever comes and is not under any pressure.

“Let the results come as they will, I am not lacking sleep because of that,” Trio told a concerned fan.

The rapper also recently responded to comments by comedian Ty Ngachira who said he was not going to produce any more hits because he had nothing to put him under pressure anymore.

“I'm afraid that Trio Mio will no longer release bangers akimaliza shule, no prep, no exams. There is a certain spice that suffering adds to content,” Ty said.

In response, Trio said he was more focused on music now that he is out of school, noting that he currently has more time to find content to spice up his music.

The youngster’s first track after clearing school ‘Achia’ is among the top songs released in the last week.

Nation Media Group’s Managing Editor for Sports, Elias Makori is in mourning following the loss of his mother.

Makori, on his social media pages, announced the passing of his mother Mwalimu Lucy Kemunto Obanyi, saying she passed on after battling an undisclosed illness.

“This one is too painful... Rest in Peace Mum. You fought hard and we tried our best. But God's time cannot be faulted. Sleep well, Mwalimu Lucy Kemunto Obanyi. We love you so much,” he wrote.

The Nation journalist recalled the moments he had with his mother, noting painfully what he was going to miss as he paid gratitude for all she had done for him.

“I'm still struggling to accept the fact that we're not gonna chat and laugh again... But it's God's will. Thanks for everything,” he noted.

Makori also thanked people who held the family’s hand during the period his mother was ailing.

“We wish to thank the medical teams, the clergy, family members, relatives, friends and all of you who have been with us in thoughts and prayer during our mum’s medical journey. It is God’s will and we thank Him for our loving mum’s life,” he wrote.

The journalist described his mother as a great woman who faced the illness bravely despite the pain.

Mother to Bongo Flava songstress Zuchu, Khadija Omar Abdallah Kopa has revealed that her daughter is single despite word that Zuchu is seeing her boss Diamond Platnumz.

Khadija Kopa in an interview with Mbego TV, said her daughter was yet to formally introduce anyone to her, adding that she was expecting any man, not just Diamond.

“Zuhra is a woman, if any man happens to want her hand in marriage and who she is ready to marry not just Diamond, then I have no issue, after all, I want a son-in-law,” Kopa remarked.

The legendary Taaarab singer further dismissed claims that a secret wedding between Zuchu and Diamond took place.

“This is news to me. It is not true, my daughter is not married nor has she introduced anyone to me for marriage,” Mama Zuchu added.

However, the sentiments of Khadija Kopa differed with those of Diamond’s mother Mama Dangote, who has approached her son's relationship with Zuchu differently.

"I wish you a long life filled with blessings daughter-in-law Zuhura Othman Soud," Mama Dangote said.

Traditionally, societies have placed the husband in a position of authority and leadership within the marriage. This has been based on the belief that men are providers and protectors of their families.

However, in recent years, there has been a shift away from this traditional view of marriage. Many people now believe that both partners should be equal in terms of power and decision-making.

This is majorly due to the fact that women have been empowered and now play a more active role in providing for their families.

Rev Cathy Kiuna of the Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) however shares a deeper view on a husband and wife's place in a marriage union.

According to Rev Kiuna, both husband and wife are equal, however for the marriage to function properly the wife should submit to the husband's authority in obedience to God's word.

Rev Kiuna says that submission does not mean the wife is inferior to her husband instead it fosters order and gives direction in the marriage.

"Everything that God created follows a pre-established order. Nothing that God does is haphazard or chaotic. Being in order doesn’t mean that you are inferior, it means you understand that for anything to function properly, there must be order.

"As a wife, I understand that I'm not inferior to my husband, we are equally created in the image and likeness of God. But I also understand that for the sake of our marriage to function properly, I willingly submit myself to my husband's authority in obedience to God’s word," Rev Kiuna says.
