News anchor Mashirima Kapombe, known for her discreet nature, offers Kenyans a rare glimpse into her personal life, making it all the more special when she does.
Her son, Kenga, holds a special place in her heart, and whenever she shares pictures or videos of him, it’s impossible not to feel a warm, affectionate sentiment in our own hearts.
Kenga is the result of Kapombe’s relationship with the comedian Kazungu Matano, popularly known as Captain Otoyo Sibuor.
Even though the journalist is raising Kenga as a single mother, they have together created a striking and charming young boy.
In the past, Mashirima firmly denied being married to the comedian, addressing these persistent rumors by stating, “I am not married.”
On February 7, 2023, the Citizen TV journalist celebrated her son’s birthday by sharing photos of him, showcasing his growth and conveying her heartfelt wishes.
“Eight years and counting. Happy birthday my beloved Kenga ❤️ You are my everything,” she expressed.
Mashirima and Kenga share a close bond, as evidenced by a heartwarming throwback video that she shared ahead of his birthday. In the video, seen by Public News, the two were seen playfully lip-syncing to a nursery rhyme, with Mashirima openly expressing her love for her son in the post.
The doting mother also shared a photo of herself and Kenga supporting a local entrepreneur selling cashew nut products. Together, they visited the Made in Kenya Extravaganza and showed their solidarity with the vendor, Kaya Nuts, with Kenga even getting to take home a bundle of treats.
Mashirima and Kenga also showcased their playful side in a humorous skit promoting Woman’s Hope. The proud Giriama mother played the role of the customer, while Kenga, who inherited his father’s acting skills and sense of humor, portrayed the shopkeeper. Their infectious chemistry left fans delighted, and the comment section was filled with expressions of enjoyment.
