”I hadn’t posted about this in particular cus it was hard for me personally but I must say my story and be free of it! When people say “what did she wear?” “Where did she go?” “Why was she alone”? I curse those people! I’ve never told this story outside only 2 people, my immediate elder brother Emma n my sis Lola!
I was a child, about 11years old when my uncle, as in real life relative uncle would forcefully touch me and threaten me on top that he would not bless me if I tell my parents, now here’s the shocker… He was a priest! His name is Basil.
I’m sure some of my family members will be shocked when they see this. As a kid, my clothing, being alone or with family, friends or playing outside should have never been a curse but just what a kid does. Every man/woman in this world was born of a woman, a mother, sister, daughter… And I tell u, any woman who is violated against her will can and should lay a curse on the generation of the rapist!
A child molester! A pervert! There are women that do this too, though it’s mostly men that are caught out and so I curse those type of men and women that rape .. may their lust drive them to insanity and wretchedness! #justiceforuwaandtina.”
