I’m terribly sad about it but I own my grief – Adelle Onyango on missing her late mum

Media personality Adelle Onyango has opened up on missing her late mum who succumbed to breast cancer 8 eight years ago.

Ms Onyango who has always been vocal with matters concerning her heart, revealed that losing her mum felt like a never ending heartbreak, adding that sometimes the overwhelming emotions almost break her.

“8 years ago today, my mum died. Losing her is a never-ending heartbreak. The emotions are intense. Sometimes I can feel the intensity of the emotions almost breaking me - like this week - maybe because there was already an air of anxiety around. I’m not afraid of breaking. Not anymore. I think" said Adelle.

The podcaster disclosed that due to the anxiety of the ongoing corona epidemic, she re-watched some of her mothers videos on YouTube where she got to hear her laughter after such a long time.

Adelle went on to add that grief has become part of her and if it breaks her, it also has the responsibility of rebuilding.

"So I got on YouTube and watched news pieces done the day she died, done during the burial, tributes by people she inspired and then; An interview my mum did. They asked her if she had a boyfriend (🙄) and she laughed. I hadn’t heard that laugh in 8years and 2days. I miss her. I’m terribly sad about it but I own my grief. It’s part of me. So when it breaks a part of me, it also has the responsibility of rebuilding” shared the public figure.

This comes a few weeks after she expressed her anger towards University of Nairobi who put up measures to curb rape and robbery in the school after the institution reached a conclusion that the numerous rape cases were as a result of recklessness from the female students.

In all the 3 incidences reported since last year, a clear case of recklessness on the part of our female students can be drawn” read part of the statement.

Ms Adelle took to Instagram to express her disgust saying that the University was normalizing rape and shaming the victims. She stated that rape would stop if men stopped raping women.
