A 28 year-old Kenyan woman who took to the streets of Nairobi looking for a husband while carrying a placard in August seems to have set a precedent for other women to follow suit.
In photos that went viral on social media on Thursday, another woman, Cate Gachara, 27, is seen on an unidentified street carrying a similar advert, calling for a potential husband who matches her requirements to make a bid.
In the placard, Gachara says she is a mother of three and categorically states she wants to be married to a white man. She also boldly makes it clear that she is ready to be a good wife accompanied by a cell phone number.
She further describes herself as a God-fearing woman and warns jokers to keep off.
“Looking for white husband… Cathe Gachara – 27 Yrs old... God-fearing lady… Single mum of three (3)… Ready to be a good wife… Call me – 0718130559… No jokers please…,” read Cate’s placard.
In August, a lady who identified herself as Nyambura was captured holding a placard showing that she was scouting for a husband on one hand, while holding a young girl’s hand believed to be her daughter, aged 7.
“Need for a husband pris.Nyambura 28 years. I have a girl child 7 years ” Nyambura’s sign read in part.
Reports indicate that she received hundreds of calls and texts following the advert.
