Amber Ray, the second wife of city businessman Jamal Roho Safi, has sounded told off Kenyans women opposed to their husband’s move to marry second wives.
Amber spoke two days after an ugly encounter at their Syokimau home with Jamal’s first wife, Amira.
She said on Friday that it is wrong for Kenyans to ‘crucify her’ just because she is the second wife.
Amber warned that she belongs to the streets and will not take it lightly with anyone who tries to disrespect her.
“If you approach me with disrespect, I belong to the streets and I will fight back. I am not here to be stepped on,” said Amber.
“I understand in African society it is hard for people to accept second wives but the fact is, we have to share,” she added.
On Tuesday night, Amira confronted Amber at their Syokimau home.
Trouble began at 9:40 pm when Amber Ray went live on Instagram, relaying the drama in real-time to over 15,000 people on her feed.
She said that Amira walked to her house with five other women and started insulting her.
Fed up, she gave them a good scolding saying it is not her fault that Jamal chose her as a second wife.
Amber Ray, known for her strong social media presence, said she was in the kitchen when the uninvited guest arrived.
“Mimi niko kwa jikoni naskia shetani, mrogi…Anakuja kwangu kufanya nini? Ati coz mimi ni bibi wa pili ninyanyaswe? (I was in the kitchen when I heard her (Amira) call me names, satan, a witch…why did she come to my house? Just because I’m the second wife, I won’t st down and watch her insult me). I never seduced her man,” Amber defended herself.
Amira, who was fired up, shifted blame to her husband, slamming him for pursuing a second wife.
“I blame Jamal.Yeye ndio ameleta hii situation yote. (He is the one who has brought about this situation),” Amira said.
When the situation got out of hand and neighbors came out to find out what was happening, Jamal took off, leaving his two wives to square it out in public.
“Ndio mimi niko, mke mwenza. Amekuja kwangu kunichokora, kieleweke (I’m your co-wife, you (Amira) came to my house to harass me. This should be put to rest… “Go and deal with Jamal not me,” Amber retorted.
