Is being being old and unmarried something that would cripple me? Asks Mampi

She writes…

You see, to me this old age is a blessing.I pray that you will be as fit as this grandma when you are my age.It might be an insult you use to throw at me as way of relieving yourselves from life challenging situations..But,I thank God the Lord for the gift of life.

I lost my mum to cancer,a sister hit by a car and died on the spot, She died young. Way younger. I would have loved to see her live as long as I have lived. I would have loved for people to call her old at my age.

Lost Another sister after a short illness ,my father and young brother were brutally murdered (2003).

Two years ago a nephew that was named after my Father and young brother Francis Mukape salifyanji a 13 year old boy who was as good as my son collapsed and died..experiences that traumatize me to this day.

Surely you think being alive,unmarried and old is something that would cripple me ?? No.ask about me.

Try those tricks on your mothers,sisters and brothers..I don’t play vulnerable games,my first instinct is to survive and not to wake up next to somebody especially when I’m fully aware of the inevitable 🙏🏿 I live a life of favor let me enjoy it.blessings have every reason to follow me all the way up.


  1. Donot worry about none issues. The Lord did not mean for all to get married.

    As the scriptures say, ” Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him”.

  2. Don’t let ignorant jibes affect you.

    I think, because age expectancy in Zambia is depressingly low, people living beyond 50yrs are an oddity! Yet, in developed countries, reaching 80yrs, is normal and expected. So, all credit to you for reaching the age you are – a great achievement indeed – especially as young lives are frequently lost to disease, excessive alcohol consumption and road accidents.

  3. Be encouraged, my sister. Live your life with confidence. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you just because you are single. Don’t get stressed with what others say about you.
    You are loved

  4. US Veep got married at 51 and so was our dambisa moyo. so whats there to worry about??? but integrity is important keep yourself pure. All men respect women who respect their bodies
