Singer Ruth Matete has opened up on why she has a scar on her back. Taking to social media, the TPF winner shared that as a young kid she got burned by porridge which left her with the mark.
“You see that scar on my back? That’s just what you can see. When I was young, I got burned by porridge. I was barely walking. Dad says I was still crawling. Back in Kakamega. Mum had prepared porridge and ran out to do something. I crawled, and touched the tip of the pot (sufuria) and it toppled over. Long story short, I burned 80%. I don’t know what that means, I just know it’s alot of burning.
The whole of my back, both of my thighs, parts of my hands, and a small part of my head.” she said.
Matete added that although she got the scar, she’s happy it came on a place she can hide so it doesn’t bother her so much.
“I mean, God was so gracious the parts that were burned are those I can hide with clothes. Now I know I was born to serve Him. Mini skirts, haiwes mek
Ooh tank top! ooh bare back. Ooh see through I can’t do such. Let’s just say, God is wiseDaddy says it was so hard for me to be carried. They had to do skin grafting on some parts that were deeply burned.
“I keep wondering what part of my body was grafted to add to the deeply burned parts. Could the portion of skin that was cut to be grafted to other parts, be the one that could have added to my height?Anyway, before I bore you with the long story. This is what I would like to tell you. You may not have a physical scar like mine. Yours could be an emotional scar, mental scar, etc. It still is a scar. And it would be unfair to even say that my scar is worse than yours. Because we have different strengths. What seems easy to someone else could be very hard to another.
