She recounts that the cousin was close to her mother to the extent that the cousin shared a bed with her. However, the cousin would unsolicitedly touch her. Nana says she knew it was bad for a male cousin to touch her but because of the poor relations with the mother.
“There is this Cousin that my Mom really trusted and any time she will send food it will be this Cousin to bring… so my mom trusted this man to hare beds with me.” She said.
She says the mother was so strict that made her fear about reporting the cousin. Nana also says that the cousin had threatened her not to report him to the mother.
“So this man at night touches me inappropriately, and I knew it was wrong and I tell him to stop. I was in class 3, that’s around 9 years as well. So I ask him why are you doing this and he says si hata wewe unishike, then he told me ukiambia mama yako utaniona. Then we didn’t have a relationship with my Mom growing up, because she was very strict, yaani she was just a Cop.” She added.
