Grand father from heaven | Tuko TV

His name is Njuguna and he is over 35 years old He was once in Kamiti prison here in Kibagare I used to work at the American Embassy offices I was in charge of all the activities in the bar and the bar attendants I was also in charge of the swimming pool All of us who worked in those offices lost our jobs after it was declared that the South African Embassy was taking over that place We were not given any compensation for the sudden termination We were paid like on normal basis. I received KSh 75, 000 I went back home and paid school fees for my child using all that money Since then I have been living here in difficulties with my family and my grandchildren I have been surviving on menial jobs the worst happened to me this year at around 9 am while I was on my way to Equity at Kangemi I was just about to cross the road when I hit me from behind and I fell across the road I landed on some murram and fainted for close to 40 minutes The entire left side of my body is filled with prosthetic implants after I was hit I had to undergo a surgery because my hip was broken I was told it was going to take me 15 years before I heal completely I wondered if that was going to be possible because I was not even sure about tomorrow Whenever I sit down, the implants shrink and it becomes difficult for me to stand up again It is so painful. The pain escalates to the veins on my neck it is even worse during the cold season, I don’t sleep on those days and you can’t even work at that time? I can’t so who has been helping your family in terms of food? We don’t depend on anyone here It’s only my 4 grandchildren, my daughter, my wife and myself In total we are a family of 7 people Funjia will be turning 16 years old this year She got pregnant while in class 8 Did she sit for the exam while pregnant? Yes the man responsible is called Njuguna he is over 35 years old and he was once a convict at Kamiti prison he served there for a longer period and was sentenced because of such kind of acts We were neighbours. I used to wash his clothes and fetch water for him He would pay me KSh 250 for the clothes and KSh 10 per every jerrycan of water it would depend with the number of jerrycans he had that money would sustain my family because at least we would get some food to eat there’s a day he jokingly asked me if I had a boyfriend He said he wanted us to be friends I asked him how he said he wanted to be my boyfriend I think my reaction at that moment made him take advantage of me I did not see it as something bad because I had never had a boyfriend so I wanted to have an experience he started buying me gifts and I never told anyone about the affair he treated me nicely and in the process I got pregnant for him I realized I was pregnant during my second term in school Some staff members already had realized that I was pregnant but they never asked me about it I decided to speak to our school secretary after I discovered the secret was already out I asked her to allow me sit for my examinations because they would determine my next step If I dropped out of school because of the pregnancy I would embarrass my grandfather have you reported this matter to the police? Yes and so far what has been the response? they said they would start investigations after she gives birth I have reported to the chief and even gone to the police station My grandfather is an Angel to me, not even my own mother I don’t know what I would have done without him he’s more than a father and even a mother. It’ s only that I refer to him as grandfather but I wish he was my own mother not because I hate my mother but it’s because of the sacrifices he’s made for me What’s wrong with her mother? she sunk into depression and it’s almost 5 years now she is not supposed to be in a noisy environment or get too excited but again in this kind of environment we are in, you can’t stop people from making noise our main challenge is that we can’t prevent some things from happening because I don’t own this place my brother informed me that my grandfather was hit and he had undergone a hip replacement on his left side I was so hurt and thought to myself that because my mother was sick my two sisters are at the Children’s home and my brother was just hopeless and yet we don’t even know where our father is so I decided to study from here and finish my KCPE as I look after them why do you need a lawyer? to fight for rights whose rights? for the children I scored 280 in my KCPE What school? What message do you have for Njuguna if at all he is watching you? What can I even tell him? his parents are here and they re fully aware about what he did none of them has bothered to come here and find out what really transpired they chose to go silent does your boyfriend provide for your needs? I think he has taken responsibility because he provides anything that is required at the hospital and even accepted to buy baby stuffs I have not given him all my trust though he might be doing those things because of the baby and not that he loves me I just want to go to school so that in future I can able to take care of myself, my baby and my family I don’t want to depend on that man I decided that after delivering this child, I will breastfeed the baby even if it’s only for 2 or 3 months to at least have the baby-mother bond then take the child to a Children’s home as I continue with education because if I decide to just sit at home with the child I won’t be helping them in any way, instead it will be too stressful for them taking the baby to a Children’s home then going back to school is the best decision for me how do you people sleep in that house? It is a problem that is not even a house, it’s just a structure It is a problem there’s nothing in there, it’s not even enough for all of us when it’s raining, it floods in there It’s not even comfortable sleeping in there, all the mattresses have been destroyed by the waters that resurfaces from the ground especially during the rainy season that house is more than a prison how do you arrange yourselves in order to fit in the room we put 3 mattresses on the floor my daughter sleeps at the edge we then put all our belongings on the bed so my grandchildren sleep at the middle I just sit at this other edge and close my eyes to rest as long as morning comes there’s no otherwise you cannot allow your grandchild to die while you sit there and do nothing you have to do something the landlord said I should be paying KSh 2,000 per month It is even difficult for me to raise that KSh 2,000 there’s a time the landlord was really annoyed with me I decided to talk to her and persuade him I told him it wasn’t my wish not to pay rent but should I get anything I was going to pay these rentals are not mine, they belong to a certain lady who is my friend. I am like the caretaker she pushes me so much that she needs her money she is like a mother to me and sometimes when she pushes me so much I get frustrated It hurts me so bad because even if I send this family out of this place or even lock them outside they have nowhere to go I always ask God to give me strength because it is a difficult situation I keep asking myself supposing I was in the same situation, what would I have done for those who are blessed please remember your neighbors because that way you shall receive blessings from God it’s not that we are so blessed because we are way better than the less fortunate Where do you want to see your grandchildren in the future? I just want to see them in school, there’s nothing as important as education because when a person is educated they are able to make make sober decisions in life if not then they become hopeless, just like someone who was abandoned what are your plans for this Christmas? nothing the most important thing for me right now is that my grandchildren love me more than anyone else in the family more than their mother and grandmother they always tell people out about where I used to work especially the eldest one, she would tell people how I would bring meat home and she would eat and get so full the young ones are also very aggressive especially the last born last year she told me that she was not concerned about those who had new clothes for Christmas, all she needs is to go to school in January
