We celebrated Father's Day yesterday and like I said, this year's had a lot of emotions. The number of onions we cut reading the posts on social media, was too much.
Speaking on The Morning Kiss, Kamene and Jalang'o pointed out something not many would want to hear when it comes to single mothers.
"A father is a man in relation to his child or children. " Kamene read the definition
Responding to this, Jalas went ahead to dissect the meaning saying,
"The first thing is a man yes? So to all single mums out there taking both roles of the parent, it doesn't make you father according to that definition. You're an awesome mum who stepped in to play the role of an absent man. You're still the mother, you're not a father. The absence of a father makes you an awesome mum playing the role of a father, but you're not a father.
Violence was pressed yesterday online and some meme that was going round jana saying 'single mothers, please no, no, no as they prepare to wish themselves happy Fathers Day'." He said
Kamene who was not having this definition, said a mother should celebrate Fathers Day if they are standing in for that role.
"I disagree with you. I think single mothers should be celebrated because they are others and fathers therefore they are allowed to celebrate and be celebrated. They stepped into the shoes of that man."
Jalas who is a father made a very important statement.
"Let me tell you one thing. There is really never a line drawn on the role of sijui a father of a mother. You just be a parent and be there. But it because easier if both parents are there. The absence of a dad doesn't make you a man just an awesome mum."
