Actress Joy Karambu, better known for her role as Kawira on Papa Shirandula, has made a comeback on social media with an assurance to her fans that she is doing well.

Kawira, went silent for a while after announcing the end of her marriage in 2022. However, in May, during the 2023 Labour Day celebrations at Uhuru Gardens, Kawira made a remarkable return by showcasing her talent in a skit with the Vitimbi crew.

Despite her appearances on the Vitimbi show, it appears fans are still yearning for more of her acting prowess, reminiscent of her memorable moments on Papa Shirandula.

Kawira’s social media have been showcasing less of what she has been up to and some of her fans have been wondering what she has been up to lately.

An X platform user identified as 𝐉!𝐌𝐌𝐘, posted a photo of Kawira with a message that read: “Huyu alienda wapi?” (Where did she go?)

The post garnered considerable attention and even caught the attention of Kawira who expressed her cheerful gratitude.

“Finally, X is looking for me,” she responded with laughing emojis.

Kawira ended her six-year marriage to Pastor Ephantus Wahome Safari on June 16, 2020. Kawira would later say that the preacher was her first love, but they struggled to truly connect.

She cited the unpredictable nature of the entertainment industry, where people can often be deceptive, and that she came to realize that money isn’t the sole measure of happiness.

Kawira said she left her marriage in search of inner peace because she felt emotionally unsettled, even though there hadn’t been apparent issues in the marriage. However, the actress said she regrets being overly faithful and loyal in the relationship.

She said during the dating phase, it’s wise to test the waters by intentionally creating situations, like arriving late for a date, to observe your partner’s reactions and how they handle frustration.

Despite being a devout Christian, Kawira admitted that she didn’t always listen to God’s guidance.

She admitted that she had been attracted by Pastor Wahome’s physical attributes and that she had initially believed he was a divine match.
