I insulted everyone and even escaped -Jackie Chandiru on rehab experience

Jackie had been injecting herself with Pethidine that led to addiction. She was admitted at two facilities for rehab before coming to Kenya

used to inject myself with drugs and it got to a point where I was using 20 ampoules a day. I was spending up to UGX 500K a day’

she also added ‘My people called police in an effort to get me to a rehabilitation centre. My mother called the police after she saw the syringe I used to get the drugs in my body. I even let my dogs loose for the police’

‘At one point I thought God was unfair, because a girl at my age shouldn’t have gone through what I went through and what made it worse is that I went through all that in the public eye’
