When 28-year-old Priscilla Nyambura took to the streets holding her eight-year-old daughter and armed with a placard announcing her woes, Kenyans could not stop talking.
Some said that she was joker who had paraded her problems to the world, but for her, she was on a mission: To get a husband urgently.
Dressed in her white gown in an interview with KTN, Nyambura said that she had stayed for too long as a single mother and was looking for a good ‘kijana’ who would make a husband. This she said, was because too many men who had approached her were either not serious, were married and had other intentions. “The ones I have met tell me they are married and are not straight forward.”
“I asked God for wisdom, “ She narrates her story, partly in the local dialect, “then the thought came that I could do something”
Nyambura whose parents separated when she was young, says she has been receiving hundreds of calls since she went viral. In 20 minutes during the interview, her phone had over 80 missed calls and hundreds of messages. A lady on demand!
Kenyans who have empathized with her situation with some offering assistance but might not have given her the husband she is looking for, have sent her helped in other ways. She has received money from well-wishers who want her child educated.
Since she took matters in her own hands, most calls have unfortunately been from men that she described as “Jokers” who wanted to simply satisfy their curiosity.
The single mother has a few rules for men who might be interested.
Meanwhile Nyambura is looking forward to meeting a widower from Nyahururu who gave her call. She said that she was hopeful this would be successful.
Until then, do you qualify?
