Elizabeth Wanjiru, also known as shosh, is her real name. She plays Charity in the Citizen TV series Mother in Law, which has been running for a long time. While on stage, she clearly demonstrates the intended relationships with each of the cast members, leaving no doubt as to who is a friend and who is not. People enjoy the show because she plays the role well.
When Citizen TV's "Mother in Law" premiered in 2008, it was a huge success. Every Sunday, viewers could not wait to tune in to see what the characters were up to. The program has been running for 12 years, with its interesting twists and turns.
Charity Mwamba is the main character, and the plot revolves around how she treats her employees, sons, and daughters-in-law. She is a strict mother who does not put up with nonsense and is constantly overprotective of her sons.
Elizabeth Wanjiru is 79 years old and, despite her age, remains vibrant.
Shosh began acting when she was a freshman at Alliance Girls High School. Her stage presence is strong, and her talent as an actress is obvious.
Charity holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Nairobi, as well as a postgraduate diploma.
Her father and mother are both deceased. She was the youngest of 12 siblings. Unfortunately, ten of her siblings are no longer alive. The deaths of her siblings had an impact on the actress. She had lost ten of her siblings over a ten-year period.
The actress was married to Shem Bageine, a Ugandan national, but the couple divorced in 1981. She was in her forties at the time.
She married at the age of 26 after meeting her husband while both were attending university. Shem Bageine was an abusive husband who frequently abused her physically. She sought refuge at a Loresho police station on multiple occasions.
Charity Mwamba admits in an interview with Massawe Japanni that she once had to jump over the gate just to get away. The injuries were not always severe because she was able to flee before the beating became more severe.
Elizabeth Wanjiru divorced her Ugandan husband in the 1980s. After 13 years of marriage, her husband abandoned her in 1981. Shem Bageine is Uganda's minister of state for East and African affairs.
Shem Bageine returned to Uganda in 1987 after his Kenyan citizenship was revoked by the government, where he rose through the ranks from Mp to assistant minister and then to his current position as minister.
For the past 28 years, the actress has been in and out of court fighting for full ownership of her home, arguing that it was her savings that brought the house to her. Her ex-husband allegedly registered the property in his name before selling it.
Despite all of life's challenges, the 78-year-old has aged gracefully. Charity Mwamba accomplished this by eating well and taking vitamin supplements. Her pension, salary from Royal Media Services, and an inherited farm in Kitale are her main sources of income.
