"A woman of substance is a woman of power, a woman of positive influence and a woman of meaning. To be branded a woman of substance is one of the greatest compliments one can give a woman that wants to be an “influential” female. Below, I have assembled four qualities a girl/woman should possess in order to become a “woman of substance.”
Embrace your individuality and be happy the way you are: The pressure put on women in today’s society is immense and I admire any female out there who doesn’t let the high demands and expectations get them down. In my experience, I have learned that we, as women, should not let the likes of “perfected” images or “criticism” affect us and It has came as such a relief to me to realize that being different and imperfect is far more interesting than being a “perfect” person. I believe that being yourself and feeling happy as yourself- just the way you are signifies the word “beauty.”
Use your voice: We were all blessed with voices to use them- so use them! I’m a relatively quiet person and a woman of not many words who next to never will indulge in small talk chit chat. It’s just who I am. However, on the other hand, when it comes to standing up for what I believe in or voicing my opinions on things, I never fail to make use of my voice. And neither shall you! Make use of what god has given you and say what you think, say what you believe in, and argue against what you don’t.
Find your dream in life and pursue it: Follow your heart…never give up…and you can do anything. We all have the ability to do whatever it is we want to do and fulfill any dream we want to fulfill; we just have to go and do it. When you find your passion in life, it creates a meaning in your life and gives you a purpose in the world: it generates happiness.
Live up to your morals and values- always remain aware of them: Living by your morals and values in life; inspires you, motivates you and energizes you for doing something significant in the world. As children, we were always being told to be a person of moral and were educated to understand what our values are. I think, when we grow older we seem to loose or forget about those crucial qualities and in order for us to be descent human beings, we should consider re-educating ourselves on morals and values."

It’s usually said 3am is the best time to pray and am usually up to give thanks and praise…. Regardless of the trials one goes through in life, giving thanks and still appreciating what’s left is a MUST. And am here today to thank God for my life, my kids, my family, my friends, my work and you my fans. Tonight was about thanking God for another year as many haven’t made it this far. Thank you God for my life and happy birthday to me. #Blessed #Grateful

Part 1. My late dad- in yellow and white. Mimi one of the little girls namwangalia babangu! . . Leo ni miaka 13 toka baba yetu atuache..😭😭😭 Sitokaaa kuisahau siku ya Jumanne September 21 2004. Ilikuwa mida ya Sasa 1 usiku nikiwa mabibo hostel nilipigiwa simu na classmates wangu wa kiume @Gesona, Jerry Kajiru na wengine wakiniuliza nipo wapi wanataka twende sehemu nje ya mabibo hostel tukale chakula. Nikawaambia nipo block F basi wakanifata wakasema hiyo bar iko mbezi beach.Hao tukaondoka tukiwa njiani kuelekea huko nikapigiwa simu na Fideline Iranga, akiniuliza Mange uko wapi? Nikamwambia nipo njiani na washkaji tunaenda kula, akaniuliza ni kina nani? Nkamjibu huwajui, akawa very interested kujua niko na kina nani na tunaenda wapi mpaka nikastuka kidogo..Sjakaaa dakika 2 nikapigiwa simu na Carolyne Machange (Marehemu pia) akaniuliza Mange uko wapi? Mama yanguuuu nilitupa simu nkaaanza kuliaaaaaa sijui nalia nini?? Ila nilijua kuna tatizo kubwa na hakuna anaeweza kuniambia. Nikaannza kuwauliza washkjaji niliokuwa nao kwenye gari Jamani niambieni kuna nini? Something is wrong ? Wanajifanya kunishangaaa wananiuliza mange Unalia nini? Mbona hatukuelewi?? Nikawauliza Jamani mbona tunaenda Mbezi beach? Toka lini tunaenda kula mbali hivyo? Na huko ndo kwetu. Out of nowhere nilianza kuscream 'God Please not my dad' sijui why ila nilihisi ni babangu sababu watu wasingehangaika kunicheki vile Kama isingekuwa babangu coz wanajua nilikuwaje na babangu. Hapo rafiki zangu wananinyang'anya simu ili mtu mwingine asinipigie. Nalia kilio bila kujua nalilia nini. Nkachukua simu nkadial namba ya babangu ikawa imezimwa, mama yangu nikaanza kupiga mayoweeeeeeeeeeee why namba ya babangu imezimwa... gari ilivyoanza kuelekea kwetu nawauliza rafiki zangu mbona mnanipeleka nyumbani jamani?? Huku naliaaaa, wako kimya hawana jibu. . . Nakumbuka kama ilikuwa jana, tulivyofika kwetu mlinzi akaja kufungua geti nikawa namuuliza 'Babu kuna nini babu' Babu anaangalia chini, Hanijibu ile tunaingia nikaona gari ya babangu imepaki kidogo nkapata hope labda sio baba maana kama gari yake ipo it's means hajapata car accident na hawezi kufa kwa njia yoyote ile ingine sababu alikuwa mzima kabisaaa. Part 2. My dad (Mkandarasi) akikabidhi either College ya Veta au barabara (sikumbuki vizuri) kwa Mkapa . . . Basi nikashuka kwenye gari nakumbuka mtu wa kwanza kumuona alikuwa houseboy wetu Kaka Kibesa(marehemu pia) alikuwa houseboy wetu wa watangia Mimi sijazaliwa, aliletwaga na mama yangu mzazi kutoka Lindi, mmakonde mwenzie. Hata mama yangu alivyoachika Kaka Kibesa alibaki na aliendelea kunilea na alitulea watoto wote.R.I.P Kaka Kibesa. Kwa kumwangalia usoni tu nilijua ni baba, he looked so broken, nikamuuliza Kaka Kibesa naomba uniambie kuna nini, hakujibu kitu zaidi ya 'Panda juu Mange' . . Naingia ndani nakuta tayari kuna Watu wachache wamekaaa kwenye mikeka wanalia, mama yangu nilidataaaaaaa. Nilipanda zile ngazi kwenda upstairs Kama kichaaaaaaaaa, kuingia chumbani kwa baba na mama namuona step mom wangu kitandani analia huku watu wanambeleza, Mungu wangu nilianza kukaaaa chini na kusimama, najitupa nainuka , tumbo linaniuma, nilipata period hapo hapo, pale ndo nilipojua baba yangu kafariki. That was a defining moment.Nakumbuka sentensi ya kwanza nilisema ilikuwa ' Hakuna Mungu jamani, kungekuwa na Mungu asingemchukua babangu jamani' nikaanza kuuliza kafaje wakati gari yake ipo chini?? Hapo ndo nikaelezwa kajiua..... Dah sikuamini kajiua?? Ila it made sense!! . . Mara Kaka Kibesa akanitafa akanikabidhi barua aliyoniachia baba. Nkamuuliza aliacha barua ngapi akasema nne! Yangu, ya mke mkubwa, mke mdogo na ya kaka yake mkubwa!! Mikono ilikuwa inatetemeka kuifungua barua. Sikujua kama nilitaka kujua alichokiandika... Niliondoka nilipokua nimezungukwa na Watu nkajifungia nkaanza kuisoma. Like the true father that he was alikuwa kaniachia maagizo ya wapi ntapata pesa za school fees na matumizi mpaka Mirathi ikiwa settled! Na kuniagiza niwaangalie wadogo zangu. Nakumbuka sentensi ya kwanza ilikuwa ' Mwanangu Mange, utakapoipata Barua hiii nitakuwa nimeshatangulia mbele ya haki' Uwiii Barua ilijaaa machoziii. Wala hakugusia why kajiua Ila ni sababu alijua Mimi out of all people najua Sababu gani kajiua 😭😭 Part 3. Msiba wa babangu ulikuwa kama movie kwangu. . . Baada ya hapo ilikuwa ni 2 long days za kuwasubiri wadogo zangu wa kiume waliokuwa wanasoma Kamuzu Academy-Malawi wafike nyumbani.nilikuwa nawawaza wao watahandle vipi situation sababu walikuwa wadogo.Nakumbuka sikuweza kutia kitu mdomoni toka nimeambiwa baba kafariki sababu nilihitaji kuwaona kaka zangu kwanza!Nakumbuka wadogo zangu walivyofika nilisikia tu vilio vimezidi nje. Niliwakimbilia nilihisi kama Baba anarudi.Tulihagiana wote wanne, Mimi, Step mom wangu,na wadogo zangu for the longest time. Na Nakumbuka ndogo wangu anaenifata alitake control of the situation mara moja, Yani alijua Sasa baba kaondoka lazma atake control. Alitukumbatia woooote akasema 'guys we will be okay' I swear hiyo sentensi ilinipa ahueni kubwa mnooo. Aliirudia ile sentensi kama mara 10 , ' We will be okay'. 30 mins later tulikaaa pamoja tukala chakula.😭😭 . . Kifo cha babangu kinanisumbua mpaka Leo sababu I feel responsible somehow. I feel like I could have done something. I could have gotten him help. Baba yangu alikuwa ananitoa chuo kila siku anaiita ofisini kwake ananilalamikia about one thing and one person only.One of the 2 people aliemcause my father so much hurt ni Sumaye ndo maana mmeona issue yake ya kunyang'anywa Mashamba sikutaka kuposti.That time Sumaye alikuwa waziri mkuu. Labda Sumai hakufikiria kuwa threats alizomfanyia babangu kupitia mke mdogo na mali walizomfilisi yeye na mke mdogo zingeifikisha familia yetu hapo. Ntaishia hapo sababu nikiendelea itabidi nitaje na majina, kaka zangu hawatakagi niongeee hii issuie.Ila mke mdogo huwa siongei nae mpaka kesho. Nikimwonaga naskiaga roho inataka kunitoka😭 . . . Babangu aliondoka Kigoma 6 months before his death project ikiwa na matatizo na Sumaye akiwa anamwambia government haitomalizia malipo na ahand-in project ikiwa complete la sivyo anamfunga. Na hatokaaa kupewa tena projects za serikali na mkewe akawa kamchukua tayari. Remember babangu all his income zilikuwa ni project za serikali tu. All bank accounts zikawa frozen, Tanzania na Dubai......Let me end here 😭

” Today I visited a Primary School in Temeke district representing @drntuyabaliwe_foundation to discuss about setting up a school library for them.I was very excited to hear that “Reading(Maktaba)” has been introduced as part of the curriculum this year so our library donations will really help kids to have the right environment for that subject.This school started before I was born and they’ve never had a school library. ” ~~~JNM
I’m happy to see the representative of Dr. Ntuyabaliwe Foundation Jacqueline Mengi a.k.a Mama wawili doing community work in my district- Temeke! Yes, was born and raised in that district for that thank you Dr. Ntuyabaliwe Foundation for thinking of us. 🙌
“Am such an early morning person as some can see on my snap, usually up by 5am. Let’s start this day on a different note, shall we🤗 Ladies and gentlemen I’ve heard you loud and clear, the advises, the consolation, the pity, the hurt you feeling on my behalf most of all the betrayal. But let’s look at this on the positive side. When a person chooses to cheat on you it’s not YOU actually its THEM which usually turns out that they played themselves while they thought they are playing you. You should never look down on yourself, don’t ever think you are worthless because of another person’s mistake & never blame yourself. But always look at how to pick yourself up and get going. That said, with my birthday approaching let’s put all this negative energy behind us and appreciate, LIFE! 🌹”
Yes! You Go Zari!! Don’t let her over-shine you! You have been a Queen way before her and CROWNS ARE A GIFT FROM GOD, THEY ARE CUSTOM MADE!! NO ONE CAN FIT ON YOUR CROWN BABY!! IT GOT YOUR NAME WITH IRREMOVABLE SIGNATURE FROM GOD!! Just keep Queening!! I love you even more!! ❤❤❤❤ Birthday loading huh 😍😍 shame on them 🙈🙈 And Diamond ataembea kwa magoti mpaka South Africa?!! let them cry and their heart bleed badly 😂😂😂😂😂😂
“Nikiwa na rafiki yangu Martin Tiho niliyekutana nae kwa mara ya kwanza miezi miwili nilipofanya ziara katika ofisi za New Habari Sinza jijini Dar es Salaam, alikuwa anasambaza CD za filamu aliyoigiza na kutengeneza mwenyewe. Tukabadilishana mawasiliano baada ya kununua CD yake na kuahidi kushirikiana nae. Ameanzisha kampeni yake ya “Sauti Ya Watu Wenye Ulemavu.” Na hivi karibuni tutawaletea tshirt kama njia moja wapo ya wewe kuchangia katika project yake. Nilimwalika aje tupige picha za pamoja. Picha hizi zitakuwa kwenye tshirt zake. Karibuni. Usengwile.” Jokate Mwegelo
Zari I am deeply sorry my dear! But I beg you to stay! Don’t leave Diamond!……..Unajua mwanzoni niliongea bila kusikiliza interview ya Diamond na Leo Tena!………Sasa baada ya kusikiliza ndio nimejua nini kina endelea……….
Zari is just another Victim ya mimi kumuweka hapa kwa blog yangu! O’yes! Believe me! Kama wengi hamjui kuna mtandao mkubwa sana hapa Marekani na baadhi yao wapo UK ambao unatumia mgongo wa “siasa” kunichafua na kuichafua familia yangu!! Sasa watu waathirika wakubwa ni watu nianao waweka hapa kwa hii blog yangu!! Yani kama hao watu hawata nikana mimi na familia yangu (watoto wa mama yangu) basi wakiwekwa humu watafanyiwa kila mikasa na kutukanwa bila wao kujua sababu. Huu mtandao umeniandama mimi kwa muda mrefu sana kabla hata sijaanza ku-blog when I was in Kalamazoo, Michigan!
Mimi mwanzoni sikujua nini kina endelea nikamwambia baba yangu kuwa I think some people are stalking me, hakunielewa why? Hii story ni ndefu sana but to make it short siku zao zinafika wote watajulikana tuna wachora tu! Mimi nilitaka to commit suicide mara mbili because no one believed me first wakifikiri nimechanganyikiwa! Oh! Yes! Usinione na simama na baba yangu Dr Magufuli na nitasimama naye mpaka nakwenda kaburini because he saved my life!! Nimtandao wa watu wengi sana mpaka Wachungaji wa Kisabato wamo kwenye huu mtandao! Baadhi ya ndugu zangu nao wapo kwenye huu mtandao.
Kuweni makini sana haswa wanachama wa CCM na picha mnazopiga na watu kwani hawana nia nzuri. Nia yao nikuwachafua watu wa CCM au ambao wazazi wao wapo CCM! Mimi nilipiga picha na mzee Tenende na some people kwenye DICOTA 2012 in Chicago mtu akaja niuliza maswali ambayo siku yaelewa mpaka nikatoa baadhi ya hizo picha. Kumbe hapo ndio walikuwa wameanza mchezo wa kuni stalk! And even to this date this people are stalking me but since I know what is going on mimi nawachora tu!!
Na huyu Hamisa lazima atakuwa anatumika!!…..,,…… Nayule mwanadada mzungu koko mwenye TV uchwara pale Dar es salaam kaeni naye mbali sana. She is a devil in a Lamb cloth!! You all know who I’m talking about!! And please get this very clearly I don’t have “step mother” so when someone comes to you kuwa ni step mother wangu! Don’t listen! Wote ni mtandao huu!! ………Zari I’m deeply sorry for what you have to go through because of me!! But rest assured this is under control!!
“When we go a wrong path in life, God grieves over our foolishness, because He knows we are only hurting ourselves. He also knows that this is our natural tendency, because we
-like sheep-easily wonder and stray from the only Shepherd who can guide us and keep us safe.
What decision are you facing today? Don’t rely only on your own wisdom, or even on the wisdom of others. Instead, seek God’s will, and ask Him to guide you and show you His will.
Remember: His way is always best-always. We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way [Isaiah 53:6]” Yani Mungu huyu!! Nilikuwa Facebook kabla sijafunga nakutana na ☝ hilo hubiri toka kwa Pastor Caleb Migombo, nikajikuta ghafla nimekuwa mpole. Unajua maybe because I love Zari so I put my emotions to her situation nakusahau kuwa kuna Mungu! Eeh, Mungu nisamehe! And let me withdraw my words about the Zari situation: Zari whatever God tells you to do, you follow Him! Mlilie Mungu akupe hekima ya uwamuzi wa kufanya not us human being for we all are sinners in God’s eyes! …….As I said whatever decision you make I will respect you. But seek God’s wisdom only!! Be blessed
Zari my dear, I can only image what you’re going through right now as I’ve never been in your shoes and I will never wish to wear them even for a minute!! But the only thing I know for sure is that, this family including Diamond doesn’t deserve you!! Zari just give up the fight and concentrate on the wellbeing of your children!! ………Sikiliza Zari this picture na nyingine nyingi ambazo familia ya Diamond wamepiga na Hamisa speaks volumes!! Hamisa is not a sidechick or just a babymama Hamisa ni mke mwenzio my darling!! Huo ndio ukweli!! Sasa uwamuzi ni wako kuwa kukubali ukweli kuwa mpo wawili au achana na Diamond uendelee na maisha yako but you can not fight Hamisa!! Mtoto kapewa jina la baba yake Nasib na wazazi wote wapo Tanzania? Zari you can’t fight this!! Yani hata hizo picha watakazopiga wakati wa parenting time hata kama Hamisa hato kuwepo lazima zitakukera!!
Mimi ningekuwa wewe ningetafuta njia ya co-parenting na Diamond kama ulivyofanya na marehemu Ivan Ssemwanga!! Ningetoka kabisa kwenye social media for now na kuishi a very low key profile life. Yani concentrate na mambo yako na watoto zako basi! Achana na marafiki just your family members only!! Once ukiona uko powa then come back kwenye social media life again! For now ungeacha kwanza ………..Hachana na hii family as I said before they don’t deserve you!! Fikiria jinsi Diamond alivyokuwa anachekwa kuwa “HAZAI” magazeti yote yakamwandika jinsi his girlfriends wanasema hazai!! At your age you took the fall, with all the risks na kumzalia sio mtoto bali watoto and look how they repay you!! Achilia mbali jinsi ulivyo muonyesha njia ya kuweza kufanikiwa kimaisha hayo yote hawakujali ndio kwanza anamleta mwanamke kwenye kitanda anacho lala na wewe?!! This makes me sick whenever I think about it!!……..Unajua kuzaa na mwanamke mwingine unaweza piga moyo konde ukasamehe, lakini the fact kuwa this happened in your bedroom in the same bed you sleep with him!! That’s something else woman!! Mtu akudharau lakini si kwa kiwango hichi jamani!! Hamisa yupo comfortable in your bedroom utafikiri pale ni chumbani kwake??!! O’Lord of mercy!! Then mama mtu yupo sawa kabisa na mambo haya yote tena yanatendeka mbele yake!! Nimemshusha heshima huyu mama!! Something is wrong somewhere!! The whole management knew about it and no one said anything to you? Isn’t this how Michael Jackson died? People are selfish!! …………But in the end this is your life, you decide what’s best for you. I will surely respect your decision!! Just remember you once said you left Ivan Ssemwanga because you didn’t want your boys to think was OK to mistreat woman!! Think deep you got your daughter now, think deep!!……Pole sana!!
Kwanza nianze kwa kusema hongera sana Diamond na Hamisa Mabetto kwa kujaliwa mtoto wa kiume. Kwakweli Mungu kawajalia mtoto mzuri mno and he got ‘blue’ eyes?! Wow! Hongereni sana……… Diamond umefanya uwamuzi bora wa kumkubali mwanao mtoto hakustahili drama hizi zote ili wewe ukubali hadharani. But nothing worth of respect like a personal who accept and take accountability of his mistake! Own your mistake no matter how bad they are!! And for that, I salute you!! Mungu awatunzie mwanenu I can see another super star in the making!! Congratulations to both of you!
Over the weekend I visited a young girl from Singida who I had sent to India for treatment during my days as a politician. She wasn’t feeling well, so I made it a point to be there for her during her doctors visit in Dar Es Salaam. #CharityBeginsAtHome 🙏🏼🇹🇿
I’m super happy my beautiful, smart, elegant, kind, loving, and “environmental friendly” babysister is back just like the way I wished!! 🙌🙌 Yes! Such an environmental friendly lady; wanawake wengine ni hatari kwa mazingira yetu tunayo ishi!! Maongezi yao yamejaa chuki na uchochezi tuuu! Kazi yao is to pollute hali ya hewa ili kila mtu awe miserable kama wao! Wanawake kama Jojo ni wanawake adimu sana siku hizi! Woman with class!…….so happy! Welcome back baby girl you look AMAZING! Gorgeous is understatement kwakweli……….. We love you Jojo!😘😘 🙏🙏
