Mysterious Woman

During an interview with a local media station, one of the old residents of Kavaruka village, Dennis Kathuri narrated how the long-lost woman showed up at his doorstep, claiming she was trying to trace her home since she left 45 years ago.

Kwa muda ya saa kumi na mbili jioni Jumapili, niliona mama mwingine alikuja akaniomba maji nikampatia, kisha nikamwambia aketi chini alafu nikampatia chakula akakula. Baadaye aliniuliza mahali pa kulala nikamwambia aende achukue vitu vyake alete. Alienda akaleta alafu tukakaa,” he said.

According to Emmaculate Gichuku, her eldest child, their mother left when she was nine years old, her brother who is the second born was seven, and their younger sister who was only two.

“In 1975, our mother dropped us off at our grandmother’s place and said she was going to the farm. That she will pick us in the evening but we didn’t see her until today,” narrated Gichuku.

DNA Test

They said they have been looking for their mother for quite a long time but their efforts didn’t bear any fruits. Seeing the woman brought so much joy to their hearts.

“Our mother left when we were so young, we can’t recall her so well, we have asked our aunties to tell us if she is the one. Our aunties say she might be our mother. We are not even sure if she is our mother,” Gichuku added.

The three siblings have decided to take a DNA test to acertain whether that woman is truly their mother.
