Wahu Kagwi opens up about being molested by her cousin
Rape cases continue to rise day by day in the country. We hardly go for two days without hearing of a case where a woman has been raped. Well, it turns out that it’s something that has been happening for the longest time.
Some people have chosen to go silent on the issue, others fear being judged and others have been molested by people they trust so much in their lives.
Well, Kenyan musician Wahu Kagwi is a victim of molestation when she was a child.
According to Wahu, she was molested by her own cousin when they had travelled to Ushago with her mum to get their week’s supply of food.
”So what happened to me when I was 9 years old is, I was in shagz. We used to go to shagz every weekend to get the supplies for the week. Mboga, waru, all those things for the week. So, I have an older cousin. Of course kuna ma cousins wengi sana shagz and all… My mom had gone to the garden kupick sukuma wiki. I was 9. So, tulikuwa kwa compound. And this is her nephew. So it just makes sense to say, nichungie mtoi naenda apa nakam. He was 19… I don’t want to go into detail, but he molested me and I knew it was a bad thing.”
According to Wahu, her opening up about the ordeal has made so many women open up about their experiences in her DM.
