Listening to Maina Kageni and Mwalimu Kingangi go about their discussions on men taking care of children fathered by other men it saddens me to see the kind of pretenders living out there. Yes I know this is none of my business but since am not yet someone's wife and that I have girl friends who are also hoping to tie the knot it naturally becomes a major concern.
There is a guy who called in and said that he is unhappily taking care of a child who is not his own and that he is scared that the father might be a thief or a 'chokora.' This got me thinking...if this is his greatest fear it means that he does not appreciate the mother of this child who is also his wife.
Another one called in and said that single women should dispose off their children and start a new life with out the extra 'Baggage.' He went ahead and added that the children should be left in the care of their ageing grandparents who have nothing better to do than to just sit at home and relax!How sad!
Well these are just two of the comments made during the discussion.In my opinion I think that before committing to any relationship one should be ready to accept what the other partner brings into the relationship. Children are gifts from God and they deserve to be loved and taken care of.If you cannot handle raising a child that is not yours then walk away before it is too late!
