Gospel artist-cum-TV host, Kambua Mathu has been cyber bullied severally on social media and if for one thing, it has been her lack of children.
Speaking exclusively on Citizen TV´s Day Break, the young beauty expresses:
I have been cyber bullied for not having children.
It takes just one person starting a conversation, I could tweet about anything and someone asks, utazaa lini?
Kambua reveals that that particular question stirs up an entire conversation away from her intent of the day.
All she could just have captioned is ¨It´s a beautiful morning¨ but well, the conversation takes a whole new level.
The fearless beauty discloses that there is nothing she has not come across with mean and nasty comments thrown her way.
Issues from; you must have aborted many children, to go and have yourself checked, to ulirogwa na nani?
Just a lot of nasty stuff.
And when they are done with you on Twitter, they follow you to your Instagram account and then they follow you to your Facebook account.
When it first happened, Kambua felt the world was slowly caving in on her, trolls left right and center from people who cared less that you´re actually human.
The first time you´re on TV, it´s like you belong to the people suddenly.
So people have their opinion on your life, you´re the property of the society.
The people feel like they can say anything to you, direct anything at you and that you have no feelings.
But the first time it happened for me, it was like a part of me almost died.

All these resorted to withdrawal, becoming a loner, FEAR and proceeding with caution.
I felt very depressed, I didn´t want to leave my house.
I didn´t want to do anything that involved the public space because you feel you don´t want to engage.
You feel as though everywhere you go people are talking about you, you suspect everybody for whatever conversation that they want to start that it´s probably ending up there.
And I was living in a lot of fear.
However, the sooner she dealt with it, the sooner she overcame it all and quickly realized that the outside world is actually what is imperfect.
But then when it happens the first time, then it happens the second time you´re like, I got over it the first time.
And it happens the third time and you start to realize, wait, the issue is not me.
The issue is the bullies who are behind their computers and their phones and their whatevers, who I´ll never meet.
Funny thing is how all these ´brave´ bullies actually have nothing to show when asked to face it all head on.
Or when I meet surprisingly, they never have the courage to say this.
I´ve met a bunch of them actually, but they never have the courage to say the things that they said on their accounts, face to face when they meet you.
Mrs Kambua Mathu stands brave and unmoved amidst the cyber bullying.
