I have always vehemently differed with my eloquently spoken brother Acie Lumumba ideologically. Undeniably, my brother is intelligent . Regrettably, he uses his intelligence to sneakily , whimsically manipulate others, for personal gain . Peculiarly, his vacillating / flip flopping propensities makes him a political prostitute. That’s my only bone of contention , with my brother Acie Lumumba .
Regrettably, a circulating photo of Lumumba wherein he lost a lot of weight , has ignited the streets of social media to mercilessly crucify him. Clearly , from the public eye, he did not pass their yardstick for a healthy person . Consequently, the diagnosis are already being announced by the public . In fact , some are giving prescriptions on social media.
The reality is that there are so many factors that make people lose weight . The following are plausible , in Lumumba’s case :
i) the stress of losing both of his parents in the same year
ii) doctor could have told him he is obese. So he is on a diet to lose weight.Remember obesity is measured using BMI not the naked eye.
iii)stress because of economic hardships
iv) women are emotionally intelligent, they can emotionally , spiritually drain a man . That’s why statistically the suicidal rate is higher among men compared to women .
v) it could be he is sick
I am honestly hoping that the speculations emanating from the streets of social media are far from the truth . Notwithstanding highlighting the above plausible circumstances, I am intellectually cognizant of the truism that I am not privy to his specific circumstance. Consequently, I plead the fifth!
