Dear sons and daughters, am a man of an advanced age with respect for women. I am exemplary in society with a reputation to protect.
In this long life that I have led, like any other old chap you would agree that I have come across various trying circumstances while others have been so favourable.
I have been labelled all sorts of names by different categories of people including my long time close friends and readers of my escapades in this column. Unfairly I have been judged by the so called moralists who have not even met me!
Like I have shared with you before, for the sake of clarity I will repeat here one more and final time that I am a proud and loving father and grand father who has given my offspring the most deserving upbringing and there is no doubt about that.
One thing that is causing me sleepless nights (unfortunately in the evening of my life) is to insinuate that I spent my entire life globe trotting enjoying as many one night stands as possible.
The truth of the matter is that I have travelled around the world but not necessarily due to a casual lifestyle. When I was young, I was fascinated by journalism and as I went through school, I made sure that this dream comes true so I jumped on the opportunity and today here I am a retired proud and satisfied journalist.
Whenever my assignments came I had to do my job with utmost vigour and love. Yes indeed in most cases I travelled abroad.
Like I told you before, I don’t know why women find me attractive!! One retired catholic priest I met in Tanzania in the ‘70s said that I have been “anointed by God” and this is my calling.
I truly have tried to love and keep them happy. Women out there who think am lying and blowing my trumpet just try Mr.loverman.
Last week, an ardent reader of this column said that I have only met loose women and that’s why I can manoeuvre my way around them with one night stands!!
This is totally untrue because all the ladies who have gotten the chance to date me are very serious, with blossoming careers, spiritually upright (although I find religion an imagination of the living).
In my relationships with “real women” I have been serious to the extent that we married. Yes, I have been unlucky like many others that I have married, divorced, remarried and re-divorced.
I swear by my grey hairs that the divorces were not caused by my infidelity or indeed their shortcomings but many didn’t want to leave their careers in Europe, America and in Africa. So we would amicably end it.
More than a dozen readers of this page have called me satanic, primitive, sexual tourist and all those names you would imagine.
The so called moralists and Christians have promised to pray that I find my creator’s love and healing hand to change my pervert mind.
The last time I went to church was in the early 1960s when the colonialists left. No sooner had we returned home than I saw these colonialists back in a different suit and immediately lost faith yet they have been here since.
What drives my spiritual life is logic, philosophy and common sense which tells me that killing a person is not right just like that holy book (bible) tells the pope and his followers.
Am now living a quiet life upcountry enjoying my retirement waiting to see the day I will meet the most powerful being’s love and healing hand that the men of God in long robes have been preaching about all these years.
My message from my years of experience is that falling in love like we have all done before does not require you to have a loose or real woman.
All of them will. Those who still have faith in church and religion, pray for people to have three meals a day instead of spending time praying for the Shooter.
