This revelation was shared by Samidoh's cousin, Bernice Saroni through a TikTok video on August 31.

This decision comes few months after Edday announced that she had no intentions of getting back with Samidoh because she was not in for a polygamous marriage.

In a heartfelt post shared on social media, Nazizi Hirji has opened up about her son Jazeel's journey through hearing challenges, diagnosis, and the path towards recovery.

Parental instincts often hold a profound truth, and for Nazizi Hirji, it was no different. She recalled noticing signs of hearing challenges in her son, Jazeel, at around 11 months of age.

The road to understanding his condition, however, was not straightforward. Nazizi described how the confusion arose due to the fact that Jaz could hear loud sounds, making it challenging to discern the extent of his hearing loss.

"They say parents always know Tanaka and I noticed at about 11 months that our precious Jaz was having challenges with his hearing. Because he could hear loud sounds, it was a bit confusing whether he could hear or not," Nazizi said.

Obtaining a proper hearing test posed a further challenge as the baby needed to be asleep for accurate results. Jaz's light sleep patterns complicated the process, and the family struggled to find the right information on how to facilitate the test under such circumstances.

The turning point came in February 2023 when they were able to conduct the hearing test and while the diagnosis confirmed their suspicions, it marked a new phase in their journey.

Nazizi shared that Jaz was fitted with hearing aids the following month, which helped him perceive environmental sounds.

Tanzanian songstress Zuchu has taken a firm stance against social commentator and Clouds FM presenter, Mwijaku, after he targeted her mother in an interview on August 28.

Mwijaku, known for his outspoken nature, stirred the pot by criticising Khadija Kopa's alleged endorsement of her daughter's romantic involvement with Diamond Platnumz.

In an interview with Tanzanian content creators, he questioned whether Khadija Kopa was prepared to bear the burden of her daughter's actions.

Zuchu swiftly responded to Mwijaku's comments with a powerful rebuttal, warning him to brace himself for the repercussions of disrespecting her and her mother.

She vowed to go to great lengths, even spending her entire savings, to ensure that Mwijaku faced consequences and served as an example to those who belittle and demean women.

"Wallahi, I will use every peny in my account, Wallahi nitakutolea mfano. Nimekuacha mno ila kwa hili la mamangu utakuwa fundisho kwa wenzio," Zuchu declared firmly.

Renowned activist Boniface Mwangi has found himself entangled in a legal dispute after an altercation with a lawyer who represents Mombasa Principal Magistrate Edgar Kagoni.

The incident unfolded over a series of WhatsApp messages between Mwangi and the lawyer.

In screenshots presented in court, the lawyer contacted Mwangi severally warning him against sharing content about his client.

Things escalated when the lawyer accused Mwangi of displaying disrespect towards his client who is a Judiciary officer.

The situation quickly took a legal turn as the lawyer contacted Mwangi to serve him with court documents.

Taking to his X (Twitter page), Mwangi shared his side of the story and the documents he termed as evidence.

He revealed that the lawyer had swiftly moved to court to depose an affidavit containing the WhatsApp exchanges between them for use as evidence in court.

In response, Mwangi expressed that pettiness can sometimes be inherent in such situations.

"A lawyer served me. Then he rushed to court to swear an affidavit with my exchanges with him after he had served me. Lawyers can be petty, we meet in court," he wrote.

The businessman let his thoughts known in a clip that has since gone viral.

The clip shows Frank in a somber mood, reflecting on the events of his life in recent years and sharing his experiences with the world.

Kenyan comedian Oga Obinna has shared an incident he had involving a matatu tout in Kisumu.

In an interview with a local media house on August 27, the former radio presenter opened up about his views on using public transportation and why he currently avoids them.

Obinna admitted that it had been quite a while since he last used a public service transportation, citing several reasons for his preference to avoid them.

He recounted a specific incident he experienced that solidified his decision to refrain from using matatus.

His primary concern seemed to be personal space. He recalled boarding a crowded matatu then being told to sit on a sambaza, an extra board which is usually placed between two seats for a passenger to sit on.

"Kuna siku nimeenda Kisumu a while ago. So nikapanda mat alafu nikaekwa kwa sambaza. So me am like mbona tunafinyana," he said.

Confounded by the tight seating arrangement, he couldn't help but wonder why five people were squeezed into a space meant for three.

"In my head i was like, mbona watu wanakaa watano hapa nyuma when we comfortably sit three people.

"The tout was like, 'Sit there, people need to share seats.' So, I told him I'll just pay for this space so we don't have the congestion, but he insisted there was no payment," he said.

The comedian also highlighted the noisy environment inside matatus as another aspect he can't handle.

He explained how loud phone conversations and how the conductors normally pretend to forget and get away with the passenger's money. Furthermore, Obinna criticiSed the lack of functioning seat belts
