In the Reconciliation segment during the famous Patanisho show hosted at Radio Jambo, a man identifying himself as Aaron Kirui, 31, from Nakuru, reached out for reconciliation with his wife, Mama Chela, 26, following turmoil in their six-year marriage.
Kirui stated that although they haven’t separated, his wife has been unable to stay at their home, often running away and then returning.
“We have been married since 2017. We lived together for a while, and then she left and went back to her parents’ home. After three months, she left again. When she returned, I asked her what the problem was, and she said she hadn’t even gone to her parents’ home,” Kirui explained.
He added, “We have two children. She left and returned. The last time she left, she stayed at home for a week. She was pregnant. The child was mine. After giving birth at the hospital, she went back to her parents’ home. I sent her fare to come back home, but she blacklisted me. Later in the morning, she said she would come. I don’t know if she is at her parents’ home or if she got married.”
Kirui admitted that it has been almost a year since he last saw his wife.
“It’s been almost six months since she left home. We haven’t seen each other for almost a year. She got pregnant when we were in Nakuru. It was at a small hotel,” he said.
When Mama Chela was contacted, she openly stated that her husband not meeting the child’s needs and having friendships with many women were causing conflicts in their marriage.
“He is the one with the problem, not me. If he would correct those small mistakes, I wouldn’t have any issues. He has many friends; if you talk to him about it, he doesn’t want to hear. When I ask him to send money for the baby, he claims he doesn’t have any, yet he has a job. The baby is six months old, but he doesn’t provide. The older child refused to go to their home,” Mama Chela said.
She added, “When I go to work, he thinks about his own affairs. If he corrects his mistakes, I don’t have any problems with him. He has never even seen the child, whether the baby is light-skinned or dark-skinned. He hasn’t even told his mother to come and greet the child.”
Kirui apologized to his wife for his mistakes and promised to make amends.
“Mama Chela, I still recognize you as my wife. I won’t go back; I’ll find someone else. If it’s these mistakes, I’ll correct them,” Kirui told his wife.
Mama Chela responded, “If he corrects his mistakes, I don’t have any problems with him.”
