Stop making people feel ‘less than’ because they’re not moms – Kambua
The singer has sent out an emotional plea.
Despite her various accomplishments, there are those people that feel that Kambua has not had her ‘biggest achievement’ yet, having a child after 6 years of being married to Pastor Jackson Mathu.
And in response to the criticism she and other ladies have received, Kambua noted that though motherhood is a good thing, people should not be made to feel like they are ‘less than’ for not being mums.
“Motherhood is a calling. A great one. But it's not the only one. Stop all this kosokoso of making people feel "less than" because they're not moms, by choice or by circumstance.” Kambua tweeted.
This tweet comes a few months after she expressed her frustration on The Trend about people asking her when she will get kids as she is ‘getting old’.
“People will have an opinion over everything, over children. Today I saw a comment and deleted it because this guy commented on my Instagram and he says ‘When are you going to get pregnant, you’re getting old. I remember thinking, the reason why it angers me is that people don’t even know what your journey is like. They don’t know what you’re struggling with. They don’t know if you even want to have children. They don’t know if you can have children and there are so many people especially today who are struggling with infertility. It so unfortunate that we become such a culture of being so intrusive and putting people down. Shaming each other on things like that. I would wish that people would be sensitized. I have people who are close to me who might not be at the forefront like I am but who go through that every day.” She said.
