Businessman Jamal Marlow Rohosafi and socialite Amber Ray have graced the online streets for quite a while after going public with their relationship.
I’ll Never Accept Amber as a Co-Wife- Jimal Rohosafi's first wife Speaks
I find out about their relationship on social media- Amira
The ripple effect, Jimal’s first wife, Amira, who initially led a lowkey life was thrown into the limelight.
You would think this would make Amira retreat into a shell but no, she has fully embraced what comes with publicity.
Speaking to Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, Amira disclosed that she too had learnt of her husband’s new relationship with the socialite on social media.
She further added that she has still not accepted and will never accept Amber as her co-wife because she was not involved in the decision to have her married to her husband.
Massawe: Sasa hivi uko kwenye mitandao ya jamii (social media) na mume wako Jimal aliweza kuoa mke wa pili. Na kuna vishindo kule social media. How is that for you as a fisrt wife ama ilikuwaje mume wako alipokuambia anataka kuoa mke wa pili.
Amira: Kila mtu ni mtu mzima na Mimi the only control I have is over my life, watoto wangu na biashara zangu. Watu wawili they decide what they want to do. It was his own decision. According to religion, ukiwa unaoa mke wa pili unafaa umjulishe mke wa kwanza. So ni kitu hujaambiwa anaenda kuuoa so kwangu sikuichukulia kama sawa, sio sawa kwangu na haitakuwa sawa.
Massawe: Ulijua vipi?
Amira: Mimi sikujulishwa nilikuja kujua social media.
Amira further disclosed that she has not and will not talk to Amber despite them being neighbors early on.
Amira: I am good with people and I am good with my neighbors and the people around me. I was doing the same thing with her as a neighbor so I wont say alikuwa rafiki yangu. Alikuwa tu acquaintance. Ata siwezi kumsemesha.
Amira describes herself as the Ambassador of Positivity and revealed that in as much she has been pushed to voice her opinion on social media, she will remain positive.
“Ina uzito. Any woman would feel the same way. It has never and will never be easy. Of course the first times nilifeel vibaya but now I’m happy. I’m trying to stay positive. But at times I've been pushed to the edge but I check myself from that.”
Jimal had last month claimed that his first wife should know that Amber came as a blessing in his life.
“My wife should know that Amber is a blessing, she came to my life and I changed a lot of things... she had showed me everything coz I was a loner na hakuna mtu dangerous kama mtu loner.”
The mother of two said she has been with Jamal for 17 years and she was not giving up on her marriage.
