Nairobi residents were on Tuesday to a rare dramatic incident after a middle-aged woman paraded herself along busy city streets carrying a printed placard announcing she was looking for a husband.
The 28-year-old mother of one was seen walking along with her 7-year-old daughter wearing a wedding gown along busy Tom Mboya street.
On the placard, she identified herself as Nyambura and christened her mobile number on the placard for those interested to contact her.
Kenyans as usual took photos of the rare spectacle and took to social media pages to share her 'plight'. While a section made fun of the lady's predicament, others sympathized and empathized with her and called on potential husbands to make 'bids'.
Some other Kenyans politicized the matter with one user reminding Kenyans that Opposition leader Raila Odinga had such single mothers in mind as captured in his campaigns.
The National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate had promised to have a special fund for all single mothers if elected president in the just concluded elections.
"When I say Railla is baba some of you think am mad. Raila had seen this and single mothers dint vote for him. Sasa this one should go to the delivery portal pick a husband there. My luhya brothers i know apart from chicken appetitie, you also have so much appetite for women. Please dont be tempted. My morning made,, this what I bumped into this morning.. Mabwana mupo??? Kedego Kigwiru said.
Victor Owiti said, "And that suitor akimuoa atamchukua kama gunia anaweza muacha wakati wowote..ndoa sio rehearsal anafanya..best of luck though to nyapaka or whatever,".
Mwenja Kiha Joseph, "For those women who cheat or complain that their faithful husbands are not good enough for them, remember that there are some fellow women who are looking for husbands. For instance, Nyambura (shown above). Don't let your pride lose your husband to another woman who is searching,".
Wayne Amos noted, "And why is her number bussy since morning... Wanaume nakuokolea,najua hivi sasa anahama...,".
Willie Njoroge slammed her for exposing her innocent daughter, "Whatever the case exposing the little angel to the marauders of men in the street really pains me. She has her freedom of association but has the responsibility of protecting the child's life and dignity. The kid ain't looking for a husband. Is she?,".
Shuah Muhonja said: "Really? God's time is the best,this Lady took it far she could kneel down and ask God for a good husband, i saw this coming Githeri copy cat seeking attention we have many single mums who are toiling out there and praying for better husband,does it show she's that desperate if she's just normal she must look descent not like that,".
