Former Tahidi High actress Makena Njeri has left Kenyans in tears after narrating how her late dad was abusive throughout her childhood.
The beauty even opened up on how her father infected her mother with HIV/AIDS.
During a candid interview with NTV, the actress who doubles as a journalist tearfully revealed her father used to abuse her mum throughout their marriage.
A brave Makena who thought her mum was going to die said she only learnt of her mother's illness when she was in Form One.
"My mum was constantly taking med*cation and she told me it helped with her nerves. As I was cleaning her room, I found the medicine and took the leaflet so I could read it and find out what it was doing to my mum. At that moment my whole life came to a standstill," she said.
Before finding out her mum was ill, she watched as the woman she loved so much suffered a serious nervous breakdown.
Years later, it all made sense when the BBC journalist discovered her mother was actually HIV positive.
"My dad used to cheat on my mother and it was no longer a secret. I used to bump into him in town while he was in the company of other women," she said.
Makena who lost her mum in 2013 said she never told her mother she was aware about her status.
She became a grown up at a young age and made sure her mum's diet was in check and that she took her med*cation in perfect time.
The former Tahidi High actress told her mother she knew about her status just a few months before she passed away.
Meanwhile, the family of a deceased man identified as Zakhele has come forward, claiming that he died because he believed Pastor Alph Lukau had healed him of HIV. According to the man's sister, he stopped taking his anti-retro viral medicine after the 'resurrection pastor' prayed for him. Zakhele believed he was healed but the virus ended up claiming his life a couple of months ago.
