Actress Mama Baha aka Wanjiku Mburu

Well, this is something one Wanjiku Mburu knows very well. After years of acting with kids  and even playing the role of Mama Baha on Machachari – Ms Mburu often secretly wished that one day she would have children of her own to call her mama.

The actress revealed this during a candid interview with popular news outlet, where she opened up about her struggle with infertility and how she finally conceived after dedicating her life to prayers and fasting.

Walk of Faith

According to Wanjiku Mburu her life changed in 2018 after she took time to pray and fast – hoping God would finally let a seed grow in her womb.

Being a spiritual person – Wanjiku says God spoke back to her promising children and although the miracle happen there and then – she chose to wait by hanging on to her faith.

2 years later at the age of 38, a new heart started beating inside her – and this only meant there was life growing in her. Wanjiku says at first she couldn’t believe that finally a baby is growing inside her and was only convinced after the bump started growing. She said;

To tell you the truth, I was not convinced. It was a good surprise, I told God sorry for doubting. I have been looking and I love children, I was dealing with children all along but not my own. I started acting with my young Milly at the age of 6 months. I have also been brought up in a family set up and children is something I wanted to have, but I said, in case I don’t have, it is still okay.

And just like that, 39 year old Wanjiku Mburu has began her journey into motherhood and having waited for so long – I bet she’ll make a perfect mum!

“See Mr President my brother was kidnapped and it’s now 3 years since and nothing from you or your office…after everything has been said and done, it’s been said and NOTHING done.
So this is me hoping with everything going on, your re-election, Githeri man raising to fame you will get to read this and bring my brother home…3 years, I think he has done his “time”. His children need their father, his wife-a husband, his parents- a son and me- MY BROTHER.

“I am writing to you and this is me clutching at straws…i was told not to write to you, others said I should follow chain of command, which I did and after a few attempts to seek audience with the relevant people we had our 1st meeting and everyone was happy to see ‘us’..well that’s until we told them why we were really there and no sooner did they hear us, there were promises of immediate action…there was ” call me 1st thing in the morning….” which I did and this was the narrative…in hushed tones I was told..” I am in a meeting I’ll call you later..” this went on for a while until they no longer bothered to pick my calls…

“Wanjiku hopes her open letter to the president will get to the attention of the commander in chief.”
