What’s the worst thing you could say about a person’s mother? The worst part about it is knowing that your mom is working as a prostitute because she can’t fend for the family.
With the Kenyan economy being this bad it was so sad to see a family suffer.
Forced marriages have also been a norm in most parts of the country and it’s sad to see young girls forced to marry an old mzee for survival.
Check out the Confession Below:
My mum married me off to a man after I barely turned 18. It was the best thing she could have done at that time because we didn’t have a home or food to eat.
I had dropped out of school because she couldn’t pay school fees. This man did everything for us, paid for our rent and gave us money for food.
Fast forward three years down the line I’m 21 and I have a child. My mum wants me to be a prostitute because that’s the only way to survive.
She hasn’t been able to get a job for the past 5 years. I don’t know what to do, I had hopes of going back to school but I’m the only one who can put food on the table for my mum, baby, and I. What should I do?a
