Then on to some very charitable people
hi Seanice, my name is Jaqi and i love your show.i have this bad habit of having ideas and letting them remain as that but today i thought i should try you.So i was thinking ever since the incident with Collin and his accident i noticed how responsive the listeners were and i remembered way before you joined Capital the website had photos of Capital Volunteers.I think the Capital Fm crew used to reach out to the needy.So i was thinking since you really have a heart for helping the needy or disadvantaged why not make Capital Volunteers a club and involve the listeners in giving back to the community.if you like the idea. Please do get back to me coz i'd love to be involved in something like this.Thanks and keep up the good work. Regards Jaqi
Dear Seanice and Fareed,
I am a keen listener to your program every morning it makes me wake up early,and I have to admit that it has kept me going strong despite the problems I have faced.
Please i would just like to let you know that I have some dresses that I dont really wear and it will be my humble pleasure if they could be given to the victims of the clashes,they are my brothers and sisters and it pains me alot to see some saying this the only dress I was left with after my house was torched down,they are many and I do not have transport if somebody could pick them from Komarock I will really appreciate.
Some Comments after we did the topic on divorce
Great show: it is very informative, eye-opening, interesting to a degree i feel stupid for thinking what i thought previously before being educated by this show. However i tuned in late. I wonder if it is possible to do this show topic again and invite this same very informative professional back to your show. Am sure i talk for many that this is an awesome show, educative and worth repeating. Adios and have a nice day; continue the good work at Capital.
And our CRIME WATCH
Hi this is Dorothy and after reading posted mails concerning crimes I really sympathies with them. They should sympathies with me too. I also think the police are not enforcing prompt action. They are on most occasions bribed off by this culprits and it has become a common thing. We should fire them. I mean we can as well do without them because when we are robbed off and report the mater to them they never take action. This leads me to my story. Just one month ago I decided to hang at Westlands. It was like 11.00 pm and since my friends and I thought it was not so late we boarded a matatu to the mall. The former stage that used to cause so much traffic was removed yet this matatu dropped us off there. When we dropped off we never so anyone at the stage and so we assumed we were safe only to cross the road and some man from nowhere snatched my bag and ran off. I was extremely shocked and to my defence started chasing the thief. My important documents were in the bag and I had just withdrawn some money to spend and it all went to the culprit’s hands. As we were chasing the man there is a particular opening just down the road which is a sewage the man disappeared in thin air. More thieves were also following us so we decided to take refuge near a security man who watched me helplessly being robbed off my valuables. I met one cab driver and he showed me several hiding spots of these men. The areas to look out for are the former mall stage just near the roundabout leading to Sarit, under cars, unga house and outside rezorous. Women should be weary of these places since we are most vulnerable because of the handbags we carry. The best advice I could give women when hanging is DONT CARRY HANDBAGS AND CELL PHONES. Board a cab cause i do nowadays. Once bitten twice shy. Police never help in these situations.
