Kenyan nanny Rosie inspires Maina Kageni’s childhood memories
Renowned radio personality Maina Kageni recently shared heartfelt sentiments about his childhood nanny in response to the viral video of Kenyan nanny Rosie Samson bidding an emotional farewell in Lebanon.
Maina expressed gratitude for the exceptional care provided by his childhood nanny, Nyina wa Ndichu, whom he credited with practically raising him.
“She stayed with us for ages. She basically raised me. Nyina wa Ndichu aki God bless you. Give her a Kayamba,” Maina said, acknowledging the profound impact of his caretaker.
The radio host’s comments were prompted by a widely circulated video capturing the emotional farewell of Kenyan nanny Rosie, also known as Rozah Rozalina Samson, as her employer’s children tearfully pleaded for her not to return to Kenya.
This isn’t the first time Maina Kageni has opened up about his personal life on air. In a previous broadcast on Classic 105, he disclosed details about his late father and the family’s succession dynamics.
“My dad died when I was two years old. Luckily for him, he left behind a will, and after his death, it was entrusted to trustees,” Maina shared during the morning show.
He went on to explain that when he turned 21, the properties outlined in his father’s will were transferred to him, ensuring a smooth transition without succession battles.
Reflecting on this aspect of his family history, Maina candidly expressed a sense of guilt on his father’s behalf, suggesting that the properties should have been left directly to his mother rather than being placed in the hands of trustees.
“My dad was guilty. Why did he not leave everything to my mother?” Maina questioned, prompting his co-host Mwalimu King’ang’i to share his own perspective on inheritance.
Mwalimu revealed that unlike Maina, his sole inheritance from his father was his mother, highlighting the responsibilities and challenges that come with familial obligations.
