Why Lulu Hassan is an awesome role model for girls

Lulu Hassan is an uncelebrated gem. And the fact that not as many women as possible celebrate who she is as a woman; a role model.

Lulu Hassan seems to have found the balance between being a wife, mother and career woman. You see, the modern world is characterized by a lot of upheavals. Traditional values are frowned upon ever since feminism became mainstream. Young women are taught that in order for them to be independent, they must throw aside the yoke of traditional gender roles that the patriarchy has forced on their forebears.

Lulu Hassan is one of the precious few modern women who have found a balance between their newfound independence and their responsibility to their families and husbands.  She is a successful news anchor, an entrepreneur, a mother and a wife. Her career is flourishing as she is even on prime time news, her family is flourishing and her husband never skips an opportunity to sing to us about her many virtues and the many ways he loves her.

She is a woman of honour.

People judge our marriage based on how we relate on TV – Lulu Hassan reveals

In a world filled with socialites, divas and whatever other names for trollops you can conjure up, are the order of the day. We have little girls looking up to the Vera Sidikas and Huddah Monroes of the world when other seemingly wholesome role models like Betty Kyallo who get inundated in controversies.
Lulu Hassan, on the other hand, is never caught up in nonsense. She has a wholesome image. She doesn’t use her body to court attention nor does she have to try being attached to powerful men for her to prove a point.

She is a mother.

You will never hear Lulu Hassan’s househelps cast aspersions to her mothering capabilities. You will never see her family attack her husband. And do you know why? It is certainly not because she and her husband never clash, it is most certainly not because they are a hive mind. It is because she puts being a mother before everything else. She knows that by publicly attacking her children’s father, she would be attacking her children’s wellbeing. Because whether or not she and Abdul Rashid (her hubby) aren’t seeing eye-to-eye, she has to keep things civil so her children do not suffer damage.
And Lulu Hassan is so serious about her role as a mother, it defines who she is.

Lulu Hassan bio

She has a happy home.

When you watch how Lulu Hassan and her husband interact, it becomes apparent that she strives to make hers a happy home. When they are home, she strives to make her husband happy. As a result, he shares that same energy. She puts 100 per cent into her marriage, her family. And her husband does the same. That is why this is the lady I would want my daughter to look up to. Not one of the attention-grabbing trollops who have nothing to show for it at the end of the day other than depression and dishonour.

It was an accident

Lulu told the court that Kanumba wanted to attack her with her panga but she pushed him away and he fell down. She ran from the house only to be told later that she he had died.

Lulu said: “Marehemu alianguka mwenyewe na kujigonga kwa nguvu na kuinuka sehemu nyingine alikuwa kama anatapatapa, nilimwambia Seth kuwa Kanumba amedondoka na akajaribu kumuamsha hakuamka akasema anaenda kumuita daktari.”
