“An apology is a lovely perfume; it can transform the clumsiest moment into a gracious gift,” goes the quote by Margaret Lee Runbeck and I agree to that.
Relationships moreso marriages are not for the faint-hearted and one has to be strong to overcome the challenges that come along.
We have seen many marriages fail maybe because of several reasons but the brave ones reconcile and forge on.
Cheating is one of the main reasons relationships fail and many celebrities have come out to apologise to their spouses for cheating on them and comedian Kevin Hart is among them.
“Sending so many apologies to my wife and kids. I gotta do better and I will. I am not perfect and have never claimed to be I love you all.
I’m in a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back. And because of that, I should make smart decisions – and recently, I didn’t,” read his message.
Well, in Kenya we also have quite a number of celebrities, who have admitted to cheating in relationships and some have apologized whereas others haven’t.
Below is a list of Kenyans – public figures and common watus – who’ve cheated on their significant others.
- Mama Racheal story
It’s the current trending story. Mama Racheal recently got married after her first husband cheated on her. Although Baba Racheal apologized and his wife accepted his apology, he was shocked to find out that she had moved on with someone else. Below is his letter that has gone viral, go through:
“I was married for 3 years until Saturday.
I used to flirt with other girls and my wife found out( kawaida tu ya wanaume).
She confronted me and I kicked her out (speak of pride), but we reconciled took her back and life continued. Still flirting with my babes, and I created a very strong password so her accessing my phone was ngumu. Last year around May my wife started Changing, she started wearing different hairstyle from her usual ponytail and perfume, she looked more beautiful and she was ever happy.
She stopped bothering my phone and my life and I thought it was good and she was just amazing.
Most Saturdays she would take our babies out and She decorated our house, bought new stuff repainted it and the most mesmerizing thing is the new 52″ Samsung TV, a bigger fridge and a 6 seat dining table she bought and now our house looked more like a home.
I still flirted with my babes despite her Changing and around December I found my wife on my phone. How she knew my password remains a mystery to me, and she was reading my chat with this particular girl, Nancy Wambui.
I shouted at her but she quietly handed the phone to me and she said “Sina ubaya”. (Little did I know)
All these are not a problem. The problem is last weekend but one she told me ameenda kuona shosho yake and I agreed.
I gave 12k for transport, and little shopping for shosho as I find more money for up keep ya watoto.all that is not a problem.
The problem is, I found out that my wife moved on kitambo, the time she found out I was flirting with some other girls,She met another man and her traditional was held on Saturday (juzi).
Really mama Rachael?
How did all this happen without my consent? Yaani this woman, she dated someone and she’s married bado akiwa kwangu? Unbelievable, and she still invested in house like nobody business, why did you buy this stuff? Ama zilikuwa za kunifunga tu macho?. I Never saw any sign of her cheating her phone was always on the table, I never heard her talk to anyone, all this time!! How!
All I need is custody ya my two girls I just want Racheal and Brianna back. Anyone who can assist get them. I don’t know how I’m going to live without them. I’m so hurt, They are all I need. That bitch can go wherever she wants to….
