Former Auntie Boss actress Nyce Wanjeri emotionally revealed that her step father was the cause of her mother’s death.
During an interview, Nyce opened up on how she came to understand that the person she thought was her biological dad was actually not after a cruel step aunty revealed to her during his funeral.
“Mum got married and got a boy, life was tough, at two years I didn’t know he was not my dad, he didn’t favour any of us, he loved me whole and didn’t discriminate,” Wanjeri opened up.
The actress revealed that her step father and his family used to treat her different from her step brother but at that time she was innocent and did not know why that happened.
“I loved him too but his mother and his siblings discriminated. I noticed they didn’t like me, they treated me different from my stepbrother. I would rush home to do housework to get them to like me,” she said.
Wanjeri reveals that her step dad passed away when she was 11 years only and her cruel aunty broke the sad news that she was not her daughter.
“My mother got another child another boy and we were happy. When he was born my father died. That was in 2002, November. During his funeral, I was 11 years, my aunt – sister wa daddy- asked why I was grieving and yet he wasn’t my real dad. I didn’t know he was not my real dad. It shocked me.
I got stressed and got ulcers at that young age. They made my life unbearable, in ushago life was hard for me, I am not saying this to embarrass anyone I am doing it to heal, they made life unbearable, they would uproot what my mum planted, and we slept hungry.”
Nyce narrated that her mother became to sick and used to spent weeks in the hospital.
“I remember one time my mum’s sisters came to visit and when they saw her they all cried, put her in the car and drove her to the town hospital. She was in the hospital for 3 weeks feeding on juice because she had severe ulcers and then one day I cleaned the bedroom because we used to share a room.
I turned the mattress over and found envelopes. My curiosity was so much I opened it up then that’s when I discovered my dad was HIV positive and my mum is but our last born is not.”
So I came to discover that when my dad used to live in Mombasa he had ‘people’ over there because he would stay for very long periods without coming home. He found out he was HIV positive in Mombasa and didn’t tell my mum. She was so stressed because at the time there was such stigma against people diagnosed with HIV.”
