Nairobi Women rep aspirant Esther Muthoni Passaris has revealed how she once caught her husband with a ‘Mpango Wa Kando’ in a tell-all interview on TV.
The 52-year-old mother of two disclosed that she once walked into a city restaurant for a lunch meeting with a business associate, only to bump into her husband having a lunch date with another woman.
According to Passaris, she walked gracefully towards them with a smile on her face, mixed emotions in her heart and stretched her hand and said: “hello darling”.
“I walked in, I greeted him and went back to my table,” Passaris recalled that day with a chuckle of satisfaction.
When they later met at home, the husband, according to Passaris, walked into their matrimonial home and asked: “What was that? Why didn’t you react?”
She looked at him and calmly responded: “I told him: ‘Darling, what did you want me to do? You wanted me to fight with you in public? I had a business lunch there, you had another woman… was it something I needed to fight for? Because a man is not my God, my God is only one. I cannot fight over a man.’”
In the hour-long interview on KBC, Passaris told the host of the show, Serfine Achieng’ that whenever she travels outside the country, she buys gifts for her co-wife and her stepchildren.
“I have been in situations where the other woman who probably has children with my husband is in a fix, and step forward to help. I tell my husband, ‘Excuse me, can you sort this out, sort out her maintenance, sort out what she needs,” Passaris confessed.
“When I travel with my husband, I buy presents for the other women’s children, because we are in this situation already. We are many. I know love is emotive. You know what? My first husband is God. I am not going to fight over this man to the point that I destroy other women or their children. I think every woman should be like that,” said the businesswoman.
She went on: “Ashazaa huko nje, are you going to let the other women’s children suffer? I fight for all women; I fight for all children, okay? Even if it is my husband with another woman out there! At the end of the day, ni mtoto wa bwanangu, ni ndugu ya watoto wangu.”
