Mother In-law actress opens up on losing 10 siblings in 10 years
Only 2 of them are alive
Speaking to Massawe Japanni, Charity said that they were born 12 by their parents who have since passed on, but only two of them are alive.
She went on to say that it was a tough time for her especially because when she was done mourning one sibling, another would die.
Ms Wanjiru added that no one understands why it happened like that, to date.
“Mama alikuwa na watoto kumi na wawili na sasa she is late, my father is also late na hata dada zangu karibu wote wamefariki. Kuna kitu kilikuja si mzuri sana kwa hivyo out of the 12 siblings, tuko wawili. Sijui what happened kwa sababu hatukuwa watu sickly mama alikuwa mkulima mzuri, tulikuwa na chakula sijui nini ilihappen… Miaka mingi nilipotelea huko mourning. Unamourn huyu ukimaliza ufurahie mwingine anaenda, it was a sad 10 years. In a space of 10 years I lost almost 10 people,” she said in the interview.
Children taken away
The 77 year-old also opened up on how her Ugandan ex-husband took her three children and went with them to Uganda, never to return.
Ms Wanjiru noted that the husband had another family and children in Uganda and they parted ways because they had unresolved issues which had been brought about by Ugandan politics.
“I was married by a Ugandan na wakati wa dictator Iddi Amin, tulikuwa affected na hio mambo ya politics ya Uganda na tena hatukusikizana some of the interpretations mimi ni mkristo na ninataka kuepuka mambo mengi inaleta shida na yeye ni ambitious so tukapart ways. Wakati Museveni akirudi nayeye akaitwa huko wasaidiane and a very serious thing happened alibeba watoto mimi naishi pekeangu kama mtu hana watoto na alikuwa tayari na bibi mwingine na watoto wengine hata watoto wangu sijui vile wako… hawanashughuli ya kurudi but they are developing their families and I don’t like to interfere,” said Ms Wanjiru.
She also mentioned that she has only met her children once since they left with father, in 1981.
