Muthoni Mukiri urges women to rethink flashy lifestyles funded by strangers

Former news anchor and life coach Muthoni Mukiri has taken a firm stance against young women resorting to dating sites in pursuit of wealthy sponsors to fund their lifestyles. 

In a candid video posted on her Instagram account, the mother of one delivered a powerful message, urging women to reconsider such choices.

Mukiri emphasized, “Most broke women don’t believe they are broke. They think they are dating the wrong guy.” She cautioned against flashy lifestyles funded by strangers, highlighting the risks of becoming subservient and susceptible to their desires.

In the video, Mukiri questioned the notion of waiting for a stranger to rescue one from financial struggles, particularly by engaging in relationships with married men on hook-up sites. 

She pointedly remarked, “The reason you are broke is because you are broke. Let's not talk about them and let's actually talk about you.”

Furthermore, Muthoni pointed out the potential dangers of relying on a man to rescue a woman from financial ruin. She noted that such women might feel obligated to repay the favor by treating the man like a deity and giving him complete control over their bodies.

"If someone can come to your life and save you, they're doing everything for you. Then you start thinking they are giving you something you can't give to yourself. You start treating them like a God, and they start doing whatever they want with your body. So please, make your own money," Muthoni added.

This isn't the first time Mukiri has shared valuable advice for women navigating the dating world. 

In September 2023, she advised women to be financially independent, asserting that their finances are not their boyfriend's obligation.

Mukiri highlighted the potential pitfalls of expecting financial support from a boyfriend, cautioning against feelings of entitlement and unreasonable expectations. 

"The problem is not you asking him, the problem is you feeling entitled. The problem is thinking he owes you money. It is not his role to take care of you financially unless he actually wants to or volunteers to. It is not his primary work," she emphasized.

Mukiri suggested that if someone wishes for their partner to provide financial support, they should approach them without a sense of entitlement. 

"You can approach him as you would a friend without entitlement. We all need support from time to time, and it’s okay to ask for support. But just know entitlement and unrealistic expectations are what will disappoint you," she advised.
