My body is full of scars- Nairobi Diaries actress painfully recounts how she was crippled

So heart breaking

According to the actress the support she got from her family and friends at that very moment helped her get back to her system slowly.

Her mother and daughter were the most instrumental people in her healing process, as the encouragements showered upon her made her strong.


“I've always used myself as an example to motivate someone out there... well this is my story.. 3-4 years ago I was crippled... I couldn't sit on my own talk less of standing or walking... the doctors told me even if I will have 20 surgeries I'll still not walk since I had multiple heart sank... I was broken... but I never cried... coz 3 most important people were there to support me... my daughter kept telling me it's gonna be ok mamii... my mum pat and sister  supported me fully... then I got another mum at the hospital who was fighting for my rights.. call her  ... people that I never knew neither had I EVER met showed me love” reads part of her statement.

She added that she got help from people who knew little about her.

However, she went on to reveal that her body is full of scars that  reminds her of  the struggles she has been through.

“A fundraiser was done by these very same people that knew nothing about me... and I was out of that hospital... me... I am their breadwinner.. I am their dad and mum that they know of... I’m their hope in life .. so how could I giAve up?? Just how?? My body is full of scars.. ugly ones for that matter... but guess what.. I owe no one a smooth body... I owe no one a straight leg.. I’ve embraced my scars.. coz they are a part of me now.. Every scar on my body, has a story of its own..... this is why I'm a strong woman.. and nothing moves me anymore.. I'm very grateful to the almighty God that I'm still alive today”
