Media personality Massawe Japanni’s efforts to reconcile former Churchill show comedian Gilbert Barasa aka Mtumishi and his mother backfired after she declined to talk to him.
On Thursday, November 16, 2023, Massawe hosted Mtumishi on her show to shed more light on the struggles he has been through with his family.
The funnyman poured his heart out, narrating how his family frustrated him and why his relationship with his mother was broken.
This prompted Massawe to reach out to Mtumishi’s mother to try and reconcile them but it was difficult.
The mother expressed her displeasure at how Mtumishi aired their dirty linen in public.
“Kwa nini alinipeleka akaniweka kwa ulimwengu mzima? Sitaki kuongea na yeye saa hii! Kama anataka tuongee, akuje nyumbani tuongee mbele ya watu wetu!” the mother argued.
She challenged the comedian to go and uncover the witchcraft allegations he allegedly labelled against her.
“Kama alisema mimi ni mchawi, basi akuje atoe hayo manyoka. Kama mimi ni mchawi, hata yeye ni mchawi. Wachana na hizo, sitaki kuongea. Kama ni kuzungumza, ni mbele ya wazazi wangu na ndugu zangu, akuje tuongee, sitaki kuongea sasa,” the mother said.
However, Mtumishi defended himself saying he used the church altar to air out his tribulations- something he has battled with for years.
“Mimi sikuenda hadharani. Hisia hiyo ilikuja nilipokuwa kwenye madhabahu na nikasema hapa ndipo mahali pazuri. Sio kitu ambacho nilikuwa nimepanga kusema. Niliskia tu imenitoka. Nimeishi nayo tangu nikiwa mtoto,” Mtumishi said.
Massawe made a second attempt to reconcile Mtumsihi and his mother and this time she was successful. The two agreed to meet and iron out their differences.
Mtumishi apologized to his mother and remorsefully accepted the apology.
“Mama, naomba msamaha lakini ningependa kujua kama nimewahi kukosea ili niombe msamaha,” Mtumishi said.
The mother challenged Mtumishi to arrange for a proper session so that they could iron out everything, once and for all.
“Kama uliskia uchungu mbona hukuja? Hata bosi yangu amekuja hapa kuniuliza, unataka kuniharibia kazi nani anilishe,” Mama Mtumishi said.
She adde; “Tutaongea nyumbani, na sio pekee yangu kabisa, na sio mahali kwingine nyumbani. Wewe ni mtoto wangu. Sina shida na wewe.”
Mtumishi was happy that he was able to talk to his mother after a long time.
“Nimefurahi mama amesema tuende tuongee. Hivyo ndo nilikuwa nataka. Simchukii, nampenda ni mama yangu,” he said.
Mtumishi’s father also expressed disappointment in how his son handled the situation.
