Deported Kenyan Woman Says She is Suffering in Kariobangi
As KSB agents return to work following a long summer vacation, hot fresh gossip begins to flourish and rumour mongers get to “after-summer” business, it has emerged that Benguella, a Kenyan woman who was deported home by Swedish authorities early this year, is reportedly going through “hell on earth” back in Kenya.
According to an agent who spoke to her, life is becoming “unbearable” because she is unable to take good care of her mulatto child she manufactured with a white Swedish dude who abandoned her soon after she gave birth.
Although the Swedes are sending her about Ksh 10.000 for child support, this money is hardly enough because it is her sole source of income. She lives in a shack and after paying the rent and setting aside money for other basic human necessities, the woman said that the money left is normally hardly enough to sustain her with the child.
Benguella comes from a poor family which, she says, had a lot of expectations from her when “she flew overseas” to start a new life. She told KSB that the belief at that time was that once she settled in Sweden, the economic hardships of the whole family would be brought to a permanent end.
“When I was in Sweden, I used to hassle some money to send back home to cover my failures but after my deportation, members of my family have understood that I never made it”, she told an agent. While in Sweden, she used to make money through private baby-sitting and hair styling. She added that she had become the source of shame to her family whose pride of having a daughter abroad had evaporated. She told KSB that although she has always lived on the precipice, she hadn’t prepared her family psychologically for what was to come.
Her biggest problem is that due to her mulatto baby, she has been rejected by members of her family who were allegedly told by a Kenyan woman resident in Stockholm that Benguella used to prostitute herself to earn money to live on and that in the process, she got pregnant accidentally and gave birth to the mulatto kid. According to this story line, money Beguella had been sending to family members was allegedly earned through prostitution.
The woman who has been pumping the family with lies is a well-known enemy of Benguella and, according to Benguella, her former friend-turned-enemy knew her relatives in Kenya because she used to send her home with messages when they were still good friends.
According to Benguella, her former friend told her relatives that there is no way she could have been deported to Kenyan with a baby fathered by a white Swede if she knew the father. “The only reason why she was deported is because she doesn’t know the father of the child since she got pregnant on the line of duty”, the woman allegedly told Benguella’s relatives.
According to Benguella, the father of her child is well known to the Swedish authorities and the KSB agent who picked up the storo said that she wanted her story published at KSB “to set the record straight” in order to counter the lies being told by her “enemy number one”.
Betrayed arrested and deported
Speaking to KSB in her shack at Kariobangi South where she had invited an agent for a chit-chat, Benguella said that she got pregnant when she was having an affair with a Swedish man who abandoned her soon after the guy discovered that she was pregnant. According to her enemy spreading dirty storos in Kenya, the dude believed that she had tricked him into “baby-making” in order to “manufacture mapeps”.
“The reason why I was deported is because the guy rejected me and the child. Without a romantic relationship with him, the Swedes said that I had to return to my country”, Benguella told KSB.
While appealing for help from friends who are in a position to understand her situation, Benguella said that life was tough in Kenya because many of her Kenyan contacts cannot understand how someone could be deported from Sweden with a Swedish mulatto child fathered by a white Swede and after living in Sweden for more than four years.
The woman said that while still in Sweden, there was a time when her baby’s father tried to help her get papers as they tried to make up but that the process was torpedoed after the guy met a fresh and cute girl from Africa who “took him over”, causing him to disconnect the paper-work at the offices of the Immigration Department.
Benguella’s case has been known to some Kenyans in her circle for a long time. According to a key member of this network, the woman spreading storos about her is the real cause of Benguella’s current problems after the woman vowed to “teach Benguella a lesson” because of a Sek 10.000 debt Benguella failed to pay. The said woman advanced the loan to her friend after she gave birth and badly needed money to purchase the basics.
Apparently, Benguella cheated her friend that she already had her papers and that she would pay back the loan in a six months installment. The woman is said to have gone berserk after Benguella failed to pay a single installment, time when the woman friend also discovered that Beguella was actually paperless.
According to those in the know, Benguella went underground after police started looking for her but that it was her ex-friend who helped track her down (through friends) at her hide-out before calling police who arrested her and deported her to Kenya without her belongings.
Benguella said that she misses things she had taken for granted while in Sweden. “I never knew that I would be stuck in a shack without running water, no toilet, no electricity and where putting every meal on the table is a big struggle”, she said.
Many Kenyan women have been deported from Sweden in the past but they always found their way back to Sweden. Benguella told KSB that her chances of returning to Stockholm were growing thinner every day because there is no on-going process as she got sucked into ghetto life.
