Former BBC Journalist Christine Njeri Makena penned down a heartfelt tribute to her late mother who could be turning 58 years old if she was alive.

In her tribute, Njeri mentioned that her late Mom taught her to always choose love over hate. Adding that, she still cherishes the good memories they shared when she was alive.

Makena’s mother passed way back in 2013.

“My Angel! My Mama ♥️.

Abusive Home

In 2019, the former Tahidi High actress, opened up on growing up in a violent home. She narrated that her father struggled with alcoholism and often became physically abusive towards her mother to a point that Makena had to share a bed with her mother to protect her from her father’s blows.

In addition, the dad cheated on their mother and infected her with HIV.

“My dad started cheating a lot I would bump into him in town with different women,” Christine Njeri told Grace Msalame on her show Unscripted with Grace.

And when her mum passed on in 2013 she broke down and felt that it was unfair since the dad was the one who infected her mother. As it turns out the father was a carrier. When they laid their mum to rest, she refused to talk to her father until two years later when he was at his death bed.

She finally went to see her dad at his death bed after being convinced by her brother to see her dad before he passed on.

“I went back to see my dad, he couldn’t talk he was very sick and I told him ‘Daddy I forgive you’. I forgive you for everything you took us through. I set you free,” she revealed.
