Amina Abdi, The trend host, narrated a very touching story in a radio interview. She was speaking about her experience in Kisii. She came across a young girl who really touched her. So after the show, The trend, it was pretty late at the time.
She said that when hosting the show, she finishes pretty late and while going home she always comes across prostitutes in the streets of Nairobi. That is something she is already used to. However while in Kisii she came across something different.
“I was not ready (for that interview). Whenever I’m done with the Trend it’s usually late and I find prostitutes on the street (in Nairobi) and usually talk to them, but in Kisii, there were girls on the street as young as 10.”
She came across a 10-year-old girl practising prostitution. The girl said that she started out at the age of 8. She did not want to venture into that business but her mother pushed her. She has never been to school because her family believes only men should get educated.
I GOT INTO PROSTITUTION WHEN I WAS 8 YEARS.MY MOTHER TOLD ME TO DO THIS JOB,I TOLD HER THAT DID NOT WANT TO, BUT SHE INSISTED THAT I GO.
HE SAID I’M A GIRL SO I DON’T NEED
TO GO TO SCHOOL.
She left a message to her mum saying that she just wants to join a school like any other normal girl.
MUM, I WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL LIKE MY BROTHER
