Kenyan viral caregiver, Roseline ‘Rosie’ Atieno popularly known as Nanny Rosie has left many perplexed as she chose to go back to Lebanon to work as a house help despite the numerous offers she had received.

For example, Vintmark Travel Agency director Catherine Joe had offered the viral caregiver a Canadian student sponsorship visa as well as a Sh 30,000 job as she waited for the visa to be processed but Rosie chose to turn her back on all this and go back to working for her Lebanese family.

This is besides the trips and other gifts that different people who'd had their hearts tagged by Rosie's story at the time bestowed upon her.


Netizens who once before had rallied behind Rosie tremendously praising her have now seemingly turned against her with most calling her naive and well... senseless, for lack of a better word.


A video of Rosie in tears as she was received by her bosses alongside their 4 kids at the airport has left a bitter taste on netizens mouths.

Following this, people have been left arguing between a job and education which one is better or more important with a few commending Rosie for her loyalty even though a month ago her Lebanese boss, Maria Cateleya released a video detailing why she does not want Rosie to come back.

Others are also calling out Rosie for not capitalizing on her fame and changing her hustle to at least allow her to be close to her young kids back in Kenya.
