@wanjawohoro, I will walk for miles to water your roots every single day until you are too tall and impossible for anyone to ignore. My strong steadfast Acacia. Ineffable in stature and beauty. The shade of your branches will always be my refuge. ? : @mwanikiweddings ? : @houseoftayo

On matter concerning trust, Radio presenter Alex Mwakideu has declared that his wife is not among the people he considers to be loyal to him.
In an interview with NTV on Friday, Mwakideu unapologetically revealed that the only person he ever trusted was his mother.
Mwakideu, however, asked his host Dr King’ori to distinguish between love, trust and loyalty emphasizing that he loves his wife and would probably take a bullet for her.
“For my wife…i think I would [take a bullet] but for my kids that’s a definite I wouldn’t even think about it but for my wife…I think I would,” he explained.
Mwakideu went on to explain that he does not trust the people in his life at all without giving details as to why he had adopted that stance.
“I don’t trust people…kabisa. The only person ambaye nilikuwa namtrust ni mamangu…mwenyezi Mungu ailaze roho yake mahai pema peponi lakini yey ndiye nilimtrust na roho yangu yote, angenisimamia mahali popote.
“I love my wife very much by the way lakini usichanganye loyalty na trust, unaeza kutrust mtu lakini hauko loyal kwake. Loyalty ni kama yule mtu husimama nyuma ya President ndio pasi ikipigwa anadedi yeye,” Mwakideu explained.The Central Organisation for Trade Unions (COTU) secretary-general Francis Atwoli is enjoying his marriage to Mary Kilobi the best way he can. Just recently, the two who are inseparable took a drive together around Maasai land and strangers noted the vocal activist’s wife was doing a good job looking after him.
While having a conversation with a few herdsmen they met tending to their cows, Atwoli repeatedly praised his rib for being a stand-up woman. “She really takes care of the home very well, this lady takes care of the home,” the COTU boss said as he held onto a staff. Mary blushed in the background as she busked in the praises that came out of her hubby’s mouth
