I Was Molested By My Own Cousin When I Was A Kid-Wahu
Cases of young girls and women being sexually harrassed have been on the rise in the country. Seems like this has been something that has been going on for very many years; Most women decide to keep quiet about it and feel ashamed. This is partly because some of them have been molested by people they trusted; their own relatives. Many times we’ve heard a 3 year old girl raped by a 40 year old man; who is her uncle. It’s clear to say that most men are pedophiles and tend to take advantage of the young ones.
Kenyan singer Wahu Kagwi is one of those who have experienced this. She discloses the incident that led to her 19 year old cousin molesting her when she was just 9 years old. In an interview with Nana Owiti, she says,
”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.”
Wahu claims that many women have since inboxed her and opened up on having similar experiences.
