Singer Wahu Kagiwi has come out to reveal that she was molested by a family member when only nine years old. 
 
The singer, who is married to Nameless and has three kids, surprised many after sharing a video narrating her ordeal which happened in upcountry. She said that a cousin touched her inappropriately while her mum was away. 
 
"So when I was nine years old I was sexually molested by my cousin. My mum had left me in his custody. We were in shags (upcountry). He was probably 19 or 20 years old. He touched me very inappropriately and I was angry and while apologizing, he said 'sorry, then touch me the way I did‘" a teary Wahu said in a video she shared on her Instagram account.
 
Wahu went on to add that it has not been easy coming out and sharing her story but sometimes people need the courage to speak up to save others. 
 
“This wasn't easy for me.. but I needed to share.” She said. 
 
“In case you've been a victim of sexual molestation I want you to know... you are not alone. don't suffer in silence. please speak out. And parents I beg us.... let's be very mindful of whom we entrust with our children...If you need someone to talk to , there's a toll free number..call ...0800 722 022 it's free. don't let your experience kill you. hugs ❤️”
 
In the comment section, many encouraged her to be strong while others came out to share horrifying stories of how they were also molested.
