A Facebook user in Ghana has revealed her ordeal about how she got raped on several occasions by her father while she was aged 10.
The user (name hidden) who shared her ordeal on a Facebook platform revealed the shock she suffered seeing her mother chastise her anytime she reported her dad for touching and raping her.
"I shouted and my own mother came to the door and told me to shut up. I was disturbing her sleep. I was so shocked that I stopped crying. I remember the pain i felt in my thighs was more than my vagina pain," she recounted.
In the disturbing revelation, the Facebook user also narrated how the effects of the abuse left her withdrawn and rejected - a development which left her losing so much weight in a short span.
The pain and rejection this Facebook user suffered saw her end up on the streets selling sachet water and chewing gum. On the streets, she also suffered other bouts of defilement which saw her end up with a 'trotro mate'.
"I wasn't eating well and I'm sure they didn't want me to talk again so I was warned by my mum never to talk again. I ran away when I was 12. I slept on the streets and sold chewing gum and water. I was raped once and got a boyfriend so he was the one protecting me. He was a truck pusher then later trotro mate but was rapping too."
But it's been years since these painful experiences and the Facebook User now has children. She has moved on with her life but the pain still lingers on.
"My mother is still alive. She's an old woman now. I've forgiven her but she doesn't know I have kids. I send her money whenever I can but the last time she saw me 'ganigani' was 3 years ago." she ended saying.
The revelation by the Facebook user was made on the #Menso page by Abena Magis where anonymous women reveal secrets in their love and marriage lives.
