I was air lifted to Nairobi for Surgery –Former NTV Presenter opens up on nasty accident

The Beautiful TV Personalty reveals her scars.

Through her Instagram account, the TV Personality reveals that, the accident left her with 19 stitches that have seen her undergo pain and physiotherapy over the years.

“This month marks 10 years since I was involved in a car accident in Mwea and had to be air lifted to Nairobi for surgery. I got 19 stitches down my left eye, and endured bouts of pain and physiotherapy over the years. Eventually complications from that accident resulted in back surgery last year, and being on the move now, is not something I take for granted,” reads Sheila’s post

She added that it is tempting to hide scars simply because they remind people the pain they have gone through and the fact that they don’t make you look or feel the same anymore.

and remind us that we don’t look or feel the same anymore. But scars are also a reminder of strength. That we got through the tough times. That we were not made to look or feel the same forever. That we are still alive, and because of that, can be even better and greater than before.” Reads Sheila Mwanyigha’s post

She went ahead to challenge her followers to be proud of their scars and start showing the off. “I’m wearing my scars. Wear yours too!”
