- A Kenyan actor has spoken out about moving on after the death of his wife
- Identified as Dan Sonko, he confirmed being in a relationship with his late wife's best friend in a recent interview
- Sonko's wife passed away in 2017 after giving birth to their second child as she slipped into a coma
- His new lady, Winifred Bwire, who is also an actress, also threw more light on their relationship
Moving on from the loss of a significant other is something many people have described as being difficult. While it is often encouraged that they move on, starting a relationship with a late partner's friend isn't something many accept.
For Kenyan actor Dan Soko, however, finding happiness in the arms of his late wife's best friend is something he has no apology for. Soko lost his wife, Dru, back in 2017 after giving birth to their second child as she slipped into a coma.
In an interview with Radio Jambo on February 24, Dan spoke about his relationship with Winfred Bwire, who was his late wife's best friend and an actor as well.

The father of two also revealed that he took off his wedding ring years after Dru died, to start a relationship with Bwire and that they have been together for 5 months now.
Taking to his Facebook page, he shared a link to the interview, describing it as ‘extremely hot and sensitive’.
“I Loved yesterday’s interview on Radio Jambo. The topic was extremely hot and sensitive. The questions were hard hitting and precise. All in all, when one lets God in and speaks from the heart, everything comes out with razor sharp clarity,” he wrote.

On her part, Bwire revealed that they were friends before he met his wife Dru. She also stated that she never thought she would ever have feelings for him because he had a family then.
“I knew Dan through the acting industry and his wife (Dru) was my best friend. He didn’t move on fast after losing her. I don’t think I’ve betrayed her because when she was still alive, I never had any romantic relationship with her husband. I also never thought he would be my lover at any point in life because he had a family at that time.”
She also shared photos from the interview on her Instagram page and wrote: "Greatest lesson I took home- Do you...Your Happiness comes first. People will give their opinions on all matters life but at the end of the day, it’s yours that counts. Dear Human, If it puts a smile on your face- GO FOR IT!! If it helps you sleep better at night - GO FOR IT!!! If it makes you feel ZEN- GO FOR IT!!! Just GO FOR IT!!!Love B"
Meanwhile, controversial relationship blogger, Blessing Okoro is back in the news, and this time, she is charging women to stop taking care of men financially. According to her, women have become desperate for marriage that they take on this responsibility.
In a lengthy Instagram video, she spoke about the importance of men providing for women as it has been written in the holy book. According to her, while women were cursed with going through labour to birth a child, a man's curse is to provide.
