The Papa Shirandula actress has opened up about her strange pregnancy addiction...


For some, roasted clay becomes a delicacy while others develop a sudden and intense hatred for foods which were their favorites like meat, milk and spicy foods. Others cannot stand the smell of onions while others gravitate towards strange smells. Some women have confessed to craving the smell of bleach, petrol, liquid detergent and other household cleaning products.

For others, the urge for the smell is so intense that get a huge whiff of it every chance they get and the urge can get so crazy that some women actually carry their pregnancy addictions in their bags. Such as Awinja who confessed to carrying Akala Sandals in her bag and sniffed them when no one was looking. For those who do not know what Akalas are they are durable sandals made from discarded rubber car tires.

Taking to social media, Awinja made this confession "I remember when I was Pregnant I was Addicted to 2 things, Dr Kingori's show the #wickededition Na Harufu ya Tyre ya gari, ata i used to carry Akala Sandals Nazinusia chini ya maji all the time..."
