The showbiz industry in Kenya has been marred with the drama of male celebrities caught up in cases of a child support case.
You tuber Kabi wa Jesus admitted to siring a child with his cousin and apologised to fans for denying his baby, Abby earlier on.
But Kabi had no word to the mother of her child, whom he allegedly abandoned and failed to take his fatherly responsibilities.
Other than accepting that Abby was his child and apologising to fans, Kabi ought to have also apologised to the mother for the pain caused.
Instead, his statement was more of a move to clear his name after the public shaming.
“I also know that my public comments about this matter gave a false impression which I deeply regret. It is a relief as we can now chat the way forward together with the mother for the welfare of our child. I am immediately reaching out to her so that we can discuss and agree on her future,” wrote Kabi.
On Professor Hamo’s side, he not only took the responsibility but also apologised to all parties involved.
In a statement on his Facebook page, the comedian issued an apology to his children, their mother Jemutai, the Royal media family and also his fans.
“A big thank you to Jemutai for agreeing for us to sit-down and have a peaceful discussion on how we are going to raise our kids.To my young ones, life is not an easy road, papa is very sorry & he hopes one day when you are old enough to understand you will forgive me. Nawapenda wote & I will always be here for you .
RMS family poleni for being dragged into all this you know we were here 3 weeks earlier. And to you my fans. Without you I am just Herman. With you I am Prof Hamo. Kindly allow me to add another chapter in “My Book Of..” I am deeply sorry for letting you down. I am not yet there but working towards being a being a responsible person, dad, husband & man. Mungu ni Mwema,” He wrote
In my opinion, this is what an apology should be, it should address all the parties involved and show remorse to each of them. Just the way professor Hamo has done it.
