Kanze Dena and Lulu Hassan have been good friends for as long as most of us can remember, and when Kanze was appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta as deputy State House spokesperson we knew that would not be the end of their incredible friendship.
“Kanze is more of a sister to me, so the gap is filled,” Lulu said. “She is that sister I have never had because even after giving birth, she would come on a daily basis and take care of my baby.”
Kanze informed her long before she left Royal Media that she would soon be heading for greener pastures.
“Kanze told me a long time before that she would be leaving and I thought it was a joke. I think she was advised to tell me so I could get used as early as possible,” she said.
When asked how she feels working alongside her husband Rashid Abdalla on Nipashe Wikendi, Lulu said;
“It is fine working with my husband because he is my friend and so we cope. We hardly argue and when we do, we don’t take it that serious, just little misunderstandings,” she said. “We were friends before we married each other and that is why we know how to work together.”
But what happens when an unexpected events comes up that might force one of them to miss their weekend program?
“We have not had a major challenge but what we are fearing is that now because we have a baby, there may be a time our baby will not be feeling well, God forbid, and we have to choose who will be responsible for the baby and who will be working,” she said.
Although she enjoys being back at work, Lulu says it hasn’t been easy since she has a newborn and she has to be there as a parent.
