Mother in law actress Elizabeth Wanjiru popularly known for her stage name Charity Mwamba has recently  shared how her failed marriage to Ugandan husband, Shem Bageine took a toll on her. Speaking during a YouTube interview, the mother of three revealed that she suffered depression and was almost left homeless after their union hit rocks leading to a split with Shem taking off with the three children.

“It was not easy, I suffered depression after he took my kids from me. He was very influential and I could not follow up to get the kids,” stated Charity.

Although the duo are not together, Charity states that  they are not officially divorced though separated.

“We have never officially divorced, I still rock my wedding ring. There were so many bad things happening at the time so we did not have time to focus on getting a divorce. For a divorce to go through both people must be present and he was not.”


“He sold our matrimonial home and sent people to come to throw me out. They wanted to auction my property. I could not pay the auctioneers so I asked for help from a pastor friend who connected me to some lawyers.”

“The case dragged on for 30 years and I finally won the case. The house is now mine,” she said in conclusion.
