A city mum wept on Classic 105, after confessing to Maina Kageni the disturbing message her long lost daughter wrote on Facebook.
The woman, who gave up her two girls to her husband after their relationship ended, sobbed that she is in a catch 22 type of situation.
I got a baby when I was 17, in form Three. I got married to this man just because I had that baby. I didn’t know about contraceptives so in about a year again I got another one. This guy was really mistreating me i stayed for around eight years with the guy I was really frustrated He once threw me on the stairs (we used to live in Jericho) So I had to decide to to leave, He used to beat me infront of my kids so I had to leave.
She described how the girls were taken away more than ten years ago an has been desperately searching for them.
Right now it’s been over ten years I haven’t seen them and he refuses me to see the kids. I think he uses them as a way of balckmailing me
She found one of the girls on Facebook and communication was swiftly ended after a disturbing message from the girl.
The mum described to Maina
As I’m talking to you I’m crying. It is not that I don’t love my babies, but whatever that man took me through I was 17. In the ten years I’ve tried reaching out my elder daughter on Facebook and she told me ‘please don’t talk to me anymore because if dad finds out he is not going to pay my school fees. So I told her ‘ok I’m not gonna talk to you until you are ready.
The tearful mum admitted that since that encounter on Facebook, her daughter doesn’t talk to her but remains hopeful that the situation will one day change.
