I have survived cancer twice, Ruth Wanjikuhttp://www.nation.co.ke
Ruth Wanjiku describes how her view of life and cancer has changed after her bone and lung cancer diagnosis.
"I've been blessed with opportunities I never thought I would get, especially to fight for the plight of cancer patients and survivors. I would never have done so without my diagnosis. Now, I know everything about cancer that sometimes I see myself as a doctor. (Laughs). I had no prior knowledge about it before my diagnosis. When I was amputated, I thought that was the end of treatmen. I did not bother asking about chemotherapy and radiotherapy."

Busia Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) secretary general Isaiah Omondi yesterday said they will not go back to work until their demands are met.

Man pleads guilty of marrying a minorhttp://www.nation.co.ke
A man shocked a Meru magistrate’s court yesterday, after he claimed that a 17-year old girl he was accused of defiling was his wife.
Mr Rogers Kariuki, in early 30s told Meru Resident Magistrate Edward Tsimonjero that the court ought to release him since the two were living as a man and wife for seven years.
He was charged that between 2014 and March 29, 2018, at Gitimbine area of Meru municipality, he defiled the minor.
However, Mr Kariuki looked the magistrate in the eye and told him, “she is my wife,”.
He then pleaded guilty to an alternative charge of touching the private parts of a minor, prompting Mr Tsimonjero to ask him if he indeed knew the gravity of the charges he was facing.
“Do you know the weight of the charges you are facing,” he asked him through the clerk who posed the same in Swahili.
Mr Kariuki repeated loudly that “she is my wife and we have been married for seven years,”.
State Counsel James Kinyua informed the court that the man was indeed a fugitive of the law, and had absconded court when he was first arraigned in 2015.
He successfully applied for the court to deny him bail and he be remanded in custody.
