Life can hand you buckets and buckets of lemons. The best you can do is suck your teeth, smile and keep sipping that lemonade.
Sip. Sip. Sip until you can afford a sweetener to even out the tangy taste.
For Catherine Gachara a.k.a Cate from Rongai, she has had her share of acidic and bitter lemonade and now she is out to get that sweetener.
Cate took to the CBD to advertise that she is looking for a white husband. She is tired of African men because they have taken advantage of her and left her to raise three kids solo.
One Kenyan Man who proved her theory was spot on, posted some lascivious comment asking if she can give him a taste of her nunu to sample. After all she is advertising herself, isn’t she?
Mwalimu Ochiel Kawara commented on the photo and wrote
“Wapi namba?? Na ya kuonja kwanza iko ..heheheee”
Cate was interviewed by a freelance photojournalist called Raphael Njoroge. She revealed that the reason she specifically wants a mzungu hubby is because her baby daddy left her high and dry.
“I will do this till I get a hubby, ” she said adding that she will consider any mzungu from any nationality “bora ni white. Because African men have given me children and left.”
Cate said, “I grew up in a children’s home in Nakuru. I was brought up by a German lady.”
Check out the interview by Raphael Njoroge which he posted on his social media platforms.
Cate is the second lady to seek a hubby in this way. A while back another woman was photographed on the streets of Nairobi with a placard seeking a husband. Priscilla Njeri landed three potential dates after whittling down the number of suiters, jokers and mafisi sacco members.
“I took numbers and noted down the men who were serious. It is only yesterday that I turned on my phone, it was switched off. I have three potential dates this Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. I selected these three men because they were consistent in their communication. They always texted goodnight and called to find out how I’m faring.”
Nyambura says she is an orphan and was left to her own devices at the tender age of eight years, when she got her first job as a house girl.
“I was forced to get an identity card at age 14 because that was the only way I could get my own independence. None of my relatives cared about how I lived. I did not even go to school, my level of education is up to class one. To date, they don’t care how I have survived. We only meet at family functions, when there is a burial. That is how they know I’m still alive,” Nyambura said.
“The reason I’m looking for a husband is because I left the woman I was working for and want to build a home of my own. During this period I have been propositioned by men who want to put me up in a house but not marry me. I have a daughter and I want to set a good example for her. If I meet a man whom I can build a life with, I don’t care if they don’t have money, status or a good job. As long as they have a sense of family.”
Here are some opinions from Kenyans who saw Cate’s makeshift billboard advert for a white hubby.
