[VIDEO] Heroin, a failed marriage and lecturing career down the drain

Grace Akinyi’s journey to prison started with a failed marriage.

Married to a hotshot doctor who afforded her a champagne lifestyle, she was shocked to learn that the man had a secret family and a string of mistresses. She confronted him- as any loving wife would do-, triggering spousal abuse and violence.

Marital bliss turned into bummer. Akinyi wanted out. But her meagre pay as a lecturer at Kenya Polytechnic could not sustain the lifestyle she desired for her children after separating from her husband. Ditto medication for her ailing mum.

Marriage Make-Good

She confided with a friend about her tribulations, who told her about a lucrative gemstones deal in Pakistan. If she could make the trip, she’d earn enough money to reset her old champagne lifestyle and cater for mum’s medical bills.

When she arrived in Pakistan, the gemstones turned out to be 150 grams of heroin. After three months of ‘house arrest’, passport confiscated, she flew back to Nairobi where she found anti-narcotics police waiting for her at the arrivals section of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
