The newly constructed facility, centrally located in Kabubua Kanyama, includes modern amenities aimed at improving hygiene and convenience for the residents. This project is part of a larger initiative to enhance public health infrastructure in the region, funded by MBAO Foundation.

In his address during the event , Mbao  who is deaf, through his sign language interpreter, underscored the significance of the new facility. “Access to clean and safe sanitation is a basic human right,” he stated. “This public toilet will play a vital role in preventing diseases and promoting overall health in our community.” His speech was met with applause from attendees who have long struggled with inadequate sanitation facilities.

The local residents, particularly women and children, expressed their relief and excitement about the new public toilet. Many recounted their daily challenges due to the lack of proper sanitation, including health issues and the inconvenience of using delapidated facilities. The new facility is expected to significantly alleviate these problems, providing a safe and accessible option for all.

The opening ceremony was not merely a formal event but a celebration of community spirit and cooperation. The festivities included traditional dances and music, adding vibrancy to the occasion.

As the event progressed, several locals expressed their gratitude and urged Mbao to continue his efforts in aiding the needy and uplifting the community. They highlighted other pressing needs, such as access to clean drinking water and better waste management. In response, Mbao reaffirmed his commitment to the ongoing community development, acknowledging the residents’ concerns and promising further action.

Community leaders and health experts believe that the new toilet will serve as a model for similar projects.

Anything for Fari

IN YES I DO, EPISODE 6, one thing led to another and here we are with a collapsed marriage that was arranged. Doing something that will live with you for eternity for other people except yourself is a precursor for crumbling of many relationships.
Tamara told Fari (L) to move on since Sammy has never been there for her. But going by her indecisiveness, she is headed back to the Barazas as an estranged second wife. This matrimonial agreement has many flaws that don't work for Fari and it entrenches commodification of women. But they choose it. Don't they?|SK ENTERTAINMENT

Mzee Baraza thinks that he could still buy love and he didn't first check his bank balance. Bringing Fari to the same house as a second wife proved chaotic and would never have worked. He stays with first wife already. And she too fled.

But this marriage failed because it lacked foundation. Baraza helped Mzee Michael to leave jail, we're told. Then as a way of showing appreciation, it's like he gave away his daughter to the sponsor of his freedom. "I am grateful he got me out of jail but he cannot have his way all the time", Mike laments.

But Fari has other plans. Sammy, the immediate ex-boyfriend is candid to Fari. "Hii kitu we jikaze for the sake of your parents. It hurts. It should not be like that but what will we do?" , he asks.

While Fari's parents are complicit in selling their daughter to a hurtful man, it looks like she will close many chapters in looking for love. Tamara advises her not to get back to Sammy since he was never there for her when she needed him the most.

Away from much drama about relationships and their imminent failure, we get to have a glimpse of what friends are for. Like Tom tipping his friends about fashion. He tells Sammy that his chest is supposed to be for those who should see it. Otherwise, utashtua wasichana. Or a truthful one-liner he gets from Shikwekwe thus: Wasichana watakumaliza.
