Hamisa Mobetto who is a mum of two has every reason to be grateful for having amazing kids who she single handedly raises back in Dar Es Salaam. Speaking recently during an interview with several media outlets; Hamisa for the first time opened up about motherhood – a topic she rarely discusses.
This was however during her grand event where she was announced as the new brand ambassador of ‘Sitetereki’ – a maternal health platform in Tanzania. Of course as a young mum, there are those who have been looking up to her for guidance; and I bet this is why she chose to share her experiences at the event.
If you think Hamisa got pregnant just for the sake of it; then you are wrong! According to Hamisa both her children were planned for; and the fathers were ready to become parents at the time she was pregnant. However just like most women, love was not on her side.
For this reason she has been raising her children all alone; but maintains her friendships with her baby daddies who she still communicates with.
Mtoto ni mipango ya Mungu lakini pia sikulazimishwa. nilikuwa nipo tayari na kwa ratiba zangu nilishajua kwamba nitazaa mtoto kwa muda fulani; kisha nitarudi kwenye kazi zangu ndiyo maana watu wengine wanaona ni rahisi kufanya.
Hamisa Mobetto went on to add that motherhood has not been easy for her; and unlike many believe bouncing back to the old body is not everything. Apart from sleepless nights, fatigue and many other problems she has sacrificed her own happiness to ensure her children have nothing but the best life.
Nimepata bahati ya kutizamwa, kufuatiliwa na kuwa na mashabiki wengi. Watoto wengi wa kike wananiangalia mimi na kudhani kwamba ni rahisi kuzaa mtoto; mwili umerudi na maisha yanaendelea na kuona mambo ambayo tunawaonyesha lakini ni vigumu sana kuliko wanavyofikiria.”
So far Hamisa has a daughter with Tanzanian millionaire Majay and a son with Africa’s finest Diamond Platnumz!
