In Summary
  • She asked me about the car — since Fiolina had said she had not seen the car — but I told her that one of his friends had driven the car to Nairobi.
  • Knowing how emotional Ford usually becomes, and considering he walks around with a gun, I am just praying that no one will be injured.

For those of you who remember, although we were driven to the Kakamega Marathon venue by Pius, who was seated in front with the beautiful Rumona, holding hands, we never came back with the two.

In fact, the last time I saw the two was when they overtook me at 3.2km.

After the marathon, Fiolina says that they waited for me for quite some time, but since I took too long to come, they drove away.

And so, although we had left Mwisho wa Lami together with Rumona, we went back without her.

It was not a big deal when we got back, for no one asked where Rumona was.

You see, her children, when schools closed, had travelled to Shimo la Tewa prison to be with their father, leaving beautiful Rumona home alone, answerable to no one.


It is only after two days that Fiolina wondered where Rumona could be.

“Huyu Mlamwa kwani alienda wapi? Amekupigia simu?” she asked. I told Fiolina that beautiful Rumona had not called me.

“She is an adult and knows what she is doing,” I said. When she added that it would be quite bad if Rumona had eloped with Pius, I told her that it was not our problem. “Pilipili usiola yakuwashia ni?”

But I knew things were getting interesting when Nimo, Pius’s wife who comes from Murang’a, called me last Thursday. She wanted to speak to Pius.

“I was talking to him earlier but his phone died because of lack of charge, and he asked that I speak to him through your phone,” she said.

Of course Pius was not at home. But being a man, I knew exactly what to say.

“I was with him about an hour ago. Right now, I am not at home but I will let you speak to him when I get back home.” She asked what he was doing at home. “Amekaa sana,” she commented.


I told him that he was running his own errands. “I know he has been looking for land to buy and we visited one piece yesterday,” I said.

She was quite happy to hear that. “Good to hear that his eyes have finally opened.” I quickly ended the call, not wanting to provide more information.

I tried calling Pius unsuccessfully. I also called beautiful Rumona several times but she would disconnect my calls.

I forgot about that matter and went on with my business. As you know, with the kids away, Fiolina and I have been enjoying life.

After supper, Fiolina prepared tea and groundnuts to be taken before sleeping.

We were leisurely taking the tea and talking when my phone started ringing incessantly. It was Nimo.

I ignored all her calls and texted her to say I would call her as soon as I got home.


Immediately, Fiolina received a call. “Yes, Mlamwa, habari ya Syokimau,” were the first words she said.
