Diamond Platnumz’ manager Babu Tale who lost his wife in June last year is still grieving. The father of 4, who’s the current MP for Morogoro East, in an interview with Salama Jabir, revealed that his wife Shammy advised him never to remarry after her death
Marehemu mke wangu tulifahamiana Magomeni Kota kwa sababu na yeye alikuwa anaishi pale, nilimtongoza mwaka mzima hajanikubali. Enzi hizo nilikuwa mtu flani rafu halafu yeye ana mambo ya kizungu,’ Tale said.
‘Mke wangu aliniambia nisioe, nakumbuka hiyo siku nimeshinda naye Muhimbili, akaniambia “nimechoka kuishi hii hali, akanishika mkono kuniambia mimi naondoka, lea watoto lakini usioe, usioe, usioe”‘. [She told me not to remarry, I remember that day when I was in hospital with her, she told me she was tired of being sick and she held my hand and told me ‘I’m leaving, take care of the kids and don’t remarry]
The sober-minded politician talked candidly of his late wife, saying that she was a great pillar in his life.
‘Kinachoniliza ni kupoteza mtu ambaye angeweza kuniongoza kwa vitu vingine, nimepata uongozi lakini yule aliyetakiwa kula good time hayupo,’ he narraed.
‘Marehemu Shammy enzi za uhai wake alifahamika zaidi kutokana na asasi yake aliyoimiliki ya “Nasimama Nao” iliyokuwa ikiwasaidia kina mama na mpaka mauti yalipomkuta. Shmmy ameacha watoto watatu, wawili wa kiume na mmoja wa kike.’
