‘How I discovered my baby’s nanny is HIV+ & breastfeeds my son’ – Actress Jacqueline Nyamide

Kenyan actress, Jacqueline Nyamide, popularly known as Wilbroda, was shocked to find out that her nanny usually breastfed her then 8 months old son whenever she was away.

In a chat with Kenyan Parents Magazine, the celebrated mom who once stated that she does not consider herself a single mother because her father’s son is very much involved in their son’s life, says the incident made her very protective of her child and always watching out on other people’s children if only to protect them from danger.

She further disclosed that the incident came to light after she got an anonymous tip while on a trip to Mombasa. Narrating further, she said that she received a call that the house help was breastfeeding the child to make him stop crying.

“When my son was around 8 months old, I had to travel to Mombasa on a work assignment and so I left him under the care of a nanny whom I had trusted so much.

While in Mombasa, I received an anonymous call from a person who informed me that my house help breastfed my son whenever he cried,” said Wilbroda

Horrified, the radio show star took the first flight back to Nairobi. Worse still, she found out the maid was HIV positive. She then rushed the baby to the hospital where tests were conducted on him and found out he was okay.

She fired the house help the next day.

“I took the first flight back to Nairobi. I had to verify the information from my neighbours and in the process, I was informed that my nanny not only breastfeeds my son but was also living with HIV.

I didn’t sleep that night and had to rush to the hospital around midnight to have my son tested. Luckily he was fine.

To cut the long story short I fired the nanny the following day. It took immense self-control to restrain myself from harming her.”

Jacquey’s son, Xolani Amin is now seven-year-old. She named him after her father. Xolani is a South African name meaning peaceful and as Jacquey explains, he lives up to the name.
