How the daughter of Powerful Politician was sexually abused

Horrific incident...

Wanja Michuki brought to light details of the horrific incident during Safaricom’s Engage Talks in December 2017.

Speaking during an interview with the Business Daily, Ms. Wanja described the abuse as one of the episodes that defined her path in life.

“If I hadn’t been sexually abused as a child I’m not so sure I’d be on this path. I’m not so sure I’d have sort of become so spiritually curious or curious about my ancestry.

“I don’t think I would have studied the human being so much and gone into trying to understand the soul and purpose. It’s funny, but I look back and I’m like ‘I’m grateful for all of it’,” she said.

At the Engage Talk, Wanja divulged that as a four-year-old she was abused by a watchman employed by her parents at their home in Kangema.

As a little girl she remained silent but when her nanny found out she raised an alarm to her parents who fired the child molester immediately.

The private management consultant mentioned that the sexual abuse she encountered could have prompted her decision never to have children of her own.

“Quite a number of women I know who have gone through abuse don’t have children and it could be. I wouldn’t rule that out," she said.

However, Wanja said that she does not have nightmares anymore over the traumatic experience.

"I think I have handled that part of my life, it has come with lessons which have informed who I am now. All of it is a part of me and I am a part of it. I don’t have nightmares about it. I slayed that monster of shame," she mentioned.

The founder of the defunct Highlands Tea remembers her no-nonsense father (John Michuki) as a good politician who was always involved with what was happening in their village at Kangema.

"I think this is where my whole pull to make a difference came from because he (John Michuki) would always be sorting our issues in the village. My father was a good politician, but more importantly he was a divine leader, serving, drawing on the divine masculine energy,” she was quoted by Business Daily as saying.

Wanja is a speaker writer and a certified coach.
