- NAIJ.com gathered that a Kenyan woman threatened to give up her son in order to land herself a man
- She lamented in a nerve-jarring post on social media that she was often praying for the death of her son because he had denied her a chance of getting married
A Kenyan mother of one has courted controversy after asking God to take her son's life in order for her to get married.
The woman lamented that all the potential men she ended up meeting ran away every time she mentioned that she is a single mum.
Having neither a job nor family to run to, when the going got tough, the woman who said that she is often caught between a rock and a hard place, explained that Kenyan men only marry a woman who is single and has no kids. That, if they marry a single mum, they would ultimately leave her for a younger, single woman.
It is not the first time that a mum has spilled her troubles as a single mum online, as in 2016, a woman threatened to kill her daughter, saying that she wanted to get married and her daughter was holding her back.
