Esther Muthoni Passaris is a Popularly known Kenyan woman who is a social entrepreneur, philanthropist and politician. She is the Nairobi County Women Representative and a member of the Orange Democratic Movement Party (ODM). Esther Passaris walked into a city restaurant for a lunch meeting with a business associate, only to bump into her husband having lunch with another woman.
The outspoken politician could clearly tell that her hubby and his guest were not having a business meeting. Anyway, she gracefully walked to their table, a smile on her face, mixed emotions in her heart and stretched her hand and said “hello darling”.
“I walked in, I greeted him and went back to my table,” Passaris recalled that day with a chuckle of satisfaction. They both finished their respective lunch dates and later met at home in the evening. The husband, according to Passaris, walked into their matrimonial home and asked: “What (was that)? Why didn’t you react?”
“When I travel with my husband, I buy presents for the other women’s children, because we are in this situation already. W are many. I know love is emotive. You know what? My first husband is God. I am not going to fight over this man to the point that I destroy other women or their children. I think every woman should be like that,” she said on one of the local TV stations.
She added on by saying this;-
“Ashazaa huko nje, are you going to let the other women’s children suffer? I fight for all women; I fight for all children, okay? Even if it is my husband with another woman out there! At the end of the day, ni mtoto wa bwanangu, ni ndugu ya watoto wangu.”
