A Kenyan man has left many in shock after narrating how both his parents abandoned him only for him to end up in the streets.
Narrating his story to Maina Kageni *Bob said,
‘BOTH MY PARENTS ABANDONED ME WHEN I WAS SIX YEARS OLD. I GREW UP ON THE STREETS, A MAMA MANDIZI USED TO GIVE ME SOMETHING TO EAT.
A GOOD SAMARITAN HELPED ME GO TO SCHOOL. SHE BROUGHT ME UP AND EDUCATED ME UP TO FORM FOUR.’
He further added,
‘PARENTS SHOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY SIRE KIDS.
EVEN IF I WAS TO GET MARRIED WHAT AM I TO TELL MY WIFE?
IT HURTS ME SO BAD BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER TASTED THE LOVE OF A FAMILY. I AM NOW 29 AND I HAVE NEVER MET THEM.
Another caller had yesterday narrated how their mum left them only for her to go join a church for prayer.
This made the kids do manual jobs to make a living.
‘MY MOM LEFT US, SHE WAS A SINGLE MOTHER AND SHE PASSED ON IN 2008. I WAS SENT HOME FOR FEES OF 500 SHILLINGS.
SHE LEFT TO GO TO CHURCH AND I NEVER SAW HER FOR A WHOLE YEAR.
I HAD TO PICK TEA AND GET MENIAL JOBS TO SUPPORT ME AND MY SISTER.’
‘I HAD TO GO AND LOOK FOR HER THE NEXT YEAR AFTER SUFFERING SO MUCH.
I WENT TO KITENGELA AND SAW HER AT THE CHURCH THAT LAUNCHED THE LIKES OF PASTOR KANYARI.
THOSE CHURCHES WHERE YOU PRAY SO MUCH UNTIL WHEN THE PASTOR IS SATISFIED AND RELEASES YOU. I SAW HER PRAYING SO HARD AND I DIDN’T WANT TALK TO HER.
THAT PROMPTED HER TO COME BACK. I WENT THERE IN 2007 APRIL AND SHE DIED A YEAR LATER. BUT FOR A LONG TIME I WAS VERY BITTER WITH HER.’
Do you know of parents who willingly abandoned their kids?
