One of the biggest fears a lot of mothers have is leaving their toddler in the hands of their househelp especially due to all the nanny horror stories.
And actress Wilborda lived through a nanny horror story after she hired a nanny who would breastfeed her 8-month-old son Xolani whenever she was away.
“When my son was around 8 months old, I had to travel to Mombasa on a work assignment and so I left him under the care of a nanny whom I had trusted so much. While in Mombasa, I received an anonymous call from a person who informed me that my househelp breast fed my son whenever he cried,” Wilbroda disclosed on Parent’s Magazine.
Upon learning of the news Wilborda took the first flight back to Nairobi in a fit of panic, “I took the first flight back to Nairobi. I had to verify the information from my neighbours and in the process, I was informed that my nanny not only breastfeeds my son but was also living with HIV.”
Sleeping was not possible after learning of the petrifying news and the actress rushed her son Xolani to a hospital for a test. “I didn’t sleep that night and had to rush to the hospital around midnight to have my son tested. Luckily he was fine. To cut the long story short I fired the nanny the following day. It took immense self-control to restrain myself from harming her.” The actress disclosed.
