I am bitter- ‘Auntie Wa Harrier’ comic on reconciling with uncles who molested her

Published

on

Almost a year has gone by since popular comedienne Brendah Jons of the famous ‘Plesident Kingston’ act opened up on being a rape victim.

Speaking on her growth and healing process during an interview with Carolina Carlz, Brendah confided that she still feels betrayed and is yet to come to terms with what two of her closest relatives did to her. The social media sensation explained that she has no relationship with her uncles, adding that perhaps time will heal her wounds.

“I can’t really say I have come to 100% forgiveness. I can only say I have accepted, he did it and there is nothing I can do about it. I am bitter, I don’t like him, actually those two, both my uncles. We don’t have a relationship whatsoever, I don’t think we ever will but I guess with time I will grow to forgive,” she said.

At the time of the harrowing ordeal, she was five-years-old and living with her grandmother as her mother worked abroad.

“I have been a rape victim before, twice, and sexually assaulted once. I was five when it first happened, and he would do it continually. He would actually threaten me that ‘if you say anything, I will kill you’. When I was 12, my aunt’s husband did it again.

This time it was a bit violent because he stuffed socks in my mouth and dared me, ‘you tell them now and let us see what they will do’. He was a praise and worship leader and I am surprised that I am in the church right now,” she narrated.

Giving up

Shortly after opening up on her experience, Brendah says she fell into depression and considered ditching comedy as a whole and venture into business.

Aunti wa Harrier comes from a place of giving up. At that time I was depressed, I was giving up on being Plesident Kingston and that day I was done. I had given up and I was gone. I decided to go start a business and concentrate on that instead. That day I called Njugush and I told him, ‘I think I’m done and I’m not coming back to comedy or whatever this is’. First off, he told me I was crazy and that is should stop joking around. He told me that I can never run out of things to do even if I felt I had exhausted the character Plesident Kingston.  He advised me to sit and think of what I wanted to do next, urging me not to give up because of how far I had come,” she said.

Thanks to Njugush’s advice and push, she able to come up with Auntie Wa Harrier, a character that has continued to put smiles of people’s faces.

“So I did just that. I sat down, prayed and I immediately came up with Auntie Wa Harrier. I called my friend Vicky and asked her if we could work on something which we did and the outcome exceeded my expectations.”

on

Locals have been camping at the bank of River Kuja in Ndhiwa, Homa Bay County since Friday in search of the body of a 37-year-old woman who was attacked and killed by a crocodile.

The reptile is reported to have disappeared with Millicent Akoth’s body after killing her before emerging from the water with the body clenched in its jaws and disappearing again.

Akoth had gone to fetch water when the large crocodile “pounced” on her throwing her in the deep part of the river before biting her, according to witnesses.

West Kabuoch Location Chief Joseph Ogur said the crocodile disguised itself as stone, making it impossible for the woman to notice it.

“The lady fell into the water and the reptile attacked her before it carried her body and ‘displayed it’ a few minutes later before disappearing with it,” said Ogur.

Locals say the reptile was last seen at around 4:30pm on Friday displaying the body before disappearing into an unknown part of the river at 4.30 pm.

The mother of three children was in the company of one of her children when the incident occurred.

Her family, friends and relatives, however, remain optimistic that they will retrieve the body.

The residents Manyuru village, West Kabuoch Location have complained of attacks by wild animals in the area.

Published

Switch TV’s Joyce Maina has refuted rumours of her having an affair with renowned DJ Sammy Muraya alias DJ Mo.

There have been allegations about the two being together but Joyce has labeled it hearsay and fake news.

Sharing her side of the story, the TV host shared messages on her Instagram Stories asking if guys thought she was dumb enough to post pictures of a married man.

“How dumb do you think I am to post a married man (not that I’d ever be with one) on my IG,” she wrote.

Joyce found the news hilarious adding guys just mistook a person that was holding her, in a trendy photo, to be DJ Mo.

“Fake news is actually hilarious. So you guys went from not knowing what the man looks like (you just have a blurry photo that makes him look like a shadow), and now all over sudden its DJ Mo? Lol,” Joyce added.

The TV girl must have found the news hilarious and wondered why people would want to tarnish her reputation with such allegations.

Size 8’s take on cheating

Back in 2017, TUKO.co.ke reported on a story where Size 8 claimed that one should be ready to forgive the other when he/she cheats in marriage.

Speaking during a recording of their vlog, the singer said that partners should always be ready to forgive each other in a relationship even when cheating occurs.

“And whoever says they cannot forgive, that is a root of pride,” she said. “Who tells you cannot do that?”

She told her fans cheating shouldn’t be allowed in marriages but in case it happens, couples should find a way to get past it.

“So when your spouse cheats, remember you cheat on God all the time but God forgives you. So forgive your spouse,” she added.
