Ever since his marriage to his former coworker Sheena Makena, one of the things which observers were quick to note was that Sheena is a couple of years older than the internationally renown journalist John Alan Namu. Twelve years after their marriage, Namu is now coming out to expose some of the difficulties he has been undergoing in his marriage to Sheena.
The respected investigative journalist took to Twitter to lament that after telling one of his kids they couldn’t have something, they went ahead to confirm this with Sheena since they consider her the head of the family. His tweet read,
After telling one of the kids they can’t have something, they went on to say “let me ask mom”. Was reminded that statement is the equivalent of saying “let me speak to your manager”￼
Nevertheless, in spite of this latest confession, John Allan Namu’s love story with Sheena Makena is an interesting one. Despite having a three-year age gap with Makena being the older one, the two are happy admitting that they are both mature and the age gap never really comes between them.
Weighing in on their age difference in a past interview, the jovial couple said that they hardly think about it adding that it only crops up when they have to fill in forms or when asked about it.
The power couple got married in 2010 and have since been blessed with four children.
Namu, speaking on a local TV show together with his wife to talk about their love story, opened up about how he had known Makena for a long time before they took things a notch higher, starting all the way from campus. The two later met again at Standard Group when Namu came for his internship and Makena was an editor there.
When the flame between the two started building up, Namu was in a long distance relationship that he says was not working out for him as well as he had wanted it to. He admits that he enjoyed the moments he had with Makena and he found himself getting super attracted to her as she was always supportive of him and his work.
When Makena got pregnant with his child, things became complicated and she set out to plan out her life. For Namu, this became a turning point and he had to come clean with his family and ex-girlfriend. During the same period, Namu was working as an investigative reporter alongside Mohammed Ali and the two were forced into exile abroad over threats.
It is during his one-month exile in Europe that he made up his mind, shopped for the baby and decided to settle down with Makena.
