“I have been a rape victim before. The first time it happened I was five and he would do it continually. That’s an uncle of mine. He was my mother’s cousin.
When she thought it was over, ” a man of god” was at it again. She was raped by a pastor when she was a first year in college.
When people were leaving, he asked me to remain behind to talk about the Bible. Before I knew it, it was midnight and he was all over me. I didn’t even fight him.
“The following day he gave me Ksh 200 to buy emergency pills to prevent any looming pregnancy. He insisted that he did not want his name tarnished. I think I was in my first year in campus,” she emotionally recalled.
However, the comedian stated that the ordeal made her stronger as she now uses her experience to help other rape victims overcome trauma.
