Being kicked out of Switzerland
“I have never allowed my challenges cover my beautiful smile, no one knew I was thrown out of Switzerland 9 months pregnant to come back to Africa, his exact words " go back to Africa I have no time ,energy or family to take care of you, I am not ready for a family now , you have too many children, and a man cannot fall in love at 50, this words penetrated deep inside my stomach , I seek advice from people I knew in Europe, but none was making sense to me 1. Throw away your passport and no one will get you out of this country, my brain ( I have my 3 helpless girls back in mtwapa ,Bahari parents boarding school , they need me more than I need the swiss papers. 2. Go report him to the government so they will put you in a house called "frauenhouse"give you food and accommodation until the baby comes, then the baby will have a swiss passport and no one can kick you out of Switzerland. My brain( I am too proud to seek for sympathy, I dint commit any crime back at home , I still have my rented house at punda Milia in shanzu, I will go back home, join my kids and live in Afrika ,than staying in jail in the name of (people will laugh at me ),” wrote Madam Boss.
