Nairobi Diaries’ Bridget Achieng recently opened up about her childhood days and how she was sexually abused by a close relative in a recent interview with Mpasho.
The reality TV star said that her uncle often violated her sexually between the ages of 9 and 12. Bridget was staying with him since her parents were always in and out of the country.
At the time, she did not really understand what was happening adding that she would feel a lot of pain whenever she visited the toilet.
It was not until later that Bridget discovered what her uncle had been doing to her but it was too late to do anything about it.
“I WAS A KID. SO BASICALLY SIKUWA NA UNDERSTAND SANA BUT ANY TIME I WOULD GO TO THE TOILET GO PEE. I’D FEEL A LOT OF PAIN BUT I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME, BUT WITH TIME I LEARNT TO ACCEPT THINGS HOW THEY ARE,” SHE SAID.
When asked whether she has forgiven her uncle for the things he did to her, Bridget said she’s sure the man is paying for his act wherever he is adding that he has deadly diseases.
