Speaking to Monicah Kagoni, the 60-year-old woman said she dedicated all her life to service and did not think of marriage.
According to her, she chose to remain single after a man she was in love with frustrated her after he failed to show up at their home as agreed for introduction to her mom.
"I was so engrossed in my work. I never said that I will never get married. When growing up I also wanted a home. I made a relationship and it grew. Later on, it frustrated me a lot and from then I told myself that all men are like that," she narrated.
Wangui said that the man did not show up and ended up giving her a lot of excuses but she had already made her decision.

The learned woman said she has never regretted her decision.
