INVESTIGATION

Officers told them that a 40-year-old man, who was found dead on the sidewalk outside the same apartment building where Lorraine Ogoti was found, was their daughter’s boyfriend.

Police said that his cause of death was “blunt force trauma.” Officers are not searching for any other suspects in the incident.

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso: I felt a lot of shame eating in public

Published

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso has opened up about her struggle with weight.

In an episode of the ‘Legally Clueless’ podcast, the presenter shared how having weight issues made her afraid of even eating in public.

“The truth is I feel like every woman is insecure right? I have always had body insecurity issues because I just don’t look like the other girls who I am told are supposed to be the beautiful ones, it’s hard to be a plus sized girl. I went to an artsy school where everyone was limber, skinny and blonde and then I joined an industry where beauty is more marketable than anything. It has been an ongoing insecurity. I used to hate taking pictures because it was evident that I was very different. I was not only super short, I was also super fat and so you kind of standout standing next to these tall Amazonian girls around you,” Linda confessed.

“I had to stop that because I like who I am, I deserve to take up space. I constantly feel like I have to apologize for existing because I didn’t look like what you think I should look like. I stopped feeling that way when I realized that if I’m constantly apologizing for existing I am not actually living.”

Linda

Only when she was at peace with her image did things easy up on her. She said now she doesn’t mind much.

“I eat and I don’t feel shame about it, I used to feel a lot of shame about eating especially in public because I always felt that when people see me eat they think I am constantly eating. I stopped eating in public, I never ate is school because I was afraid people assumed that is all I am doing anyway. These days I am shameless about that. I can say I am hungry and I don’t feel like that makes me look fatter,” Linda said.
