Kenya: Nini Wacera, an actress, recalls a terrible abortion when she was 19 years old.

Nini Wacera, a Kenyan actress, spoke openly about her life in the October issue of Parents Magazine.

Nini appeared on the cover of Parents, where she spoke about her career, being in the spotlight, parenthood, and mental health.

The actress said that she had an abortion at the age of 19, a decision she has struggled to accept. It shook her to her core, she said.

Wacera reflected on how, as a teen, she was torn between wanting to continue the pregnancy and not being able to become a mom at the age of 19.

“I feel like it’s one experience in my life that ripped me to the core of my soul because it was traumatic.

That abortion took like the whole day. After all, you’re the loose girl who had sex with your boyfriend and got pregnant.”

On Instagram, the Country Queen actress elaborated on her difficulties, writing:

“My story, like most, isn’t pretty and it was through determined effort, holding on to an idea and trusting God (sometimes losing faith) that I made it here.”

Her teen pregnancy and the uncertainty of her fate drove her to attempt suicide.

She pleaded vehemently for more action on mental health issues in Kenya.

The actress also posted videos with her now-adult daughter, who is 21 years old. Nini discussed the mother-daughter bond, saying,

“I feel like my success as a parent comes when I see her happy, and she’s made good decisions for herself.

It’s a miracle just seeing this person I carried in my belly now grown up; deciding and doing and functioning; that is what success is for me as a parent.”

It’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Nini expressed her thoughts on the subject.

“There’s also great information about Breast Cancer awareness, taking the necessary steps to get screened early and how to keep your boobies healthy.

The most important, thing is the value of a support system through all life’s challenges…this can’t be over-emphasized.”
