A teary Reid spoke to Jamaica Gleaner, saying that she was at the end of the rope and could not fend for her kids. The mom works on a farm in the community but says that the pay is meagre and cannot sustain the family.
“I’m in a sticky situation raising the four of them by myself. I try to contact the fathers, but I’m only getting a little help now and again,” she said.
Two of her older kids are supposed to be studying online but haven't been able to access the class because she cannot afford a data plan for the phone.
“The life I am giving them is the life I got when I was growing up, and that is not enough. I wish I could do more for my kids. I just can’t do all that I want. At the end of the day, I just have to be strong because the kids need me,” she said.
Another woman abandoned
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the story of Merab Wanjiku left many mouths agape after she narrated how she came back to Kenya with two children from deadbeat Sudanese men after years in Saudi Arabia.
Wanjiku had left the country seven years ago following her abusive marriage to her Kenyan husband and from which she brought three wonderful children to the world.
Speaking to Baruthi Wa Thayu YouTube channel, the Kiambu woman detailed how a string of events led her to have romantic relationships with two Sudanese men, all of who left her pregnant and took to their heels.
