Jua Cali’s wife, Lilly Asigo has disclosed that she is among the many ladies who have been sexually assaulted.
Asigo opened up how her cousin took advantage of her when she was only a 5-year-old innocent girl.
Speaking at Mambo Mseto the beautiful lass told the listeners that her cousin tried to be intimate with her.
She disclosed that the relative was staying with them at that time and he was always trying to woo her something that has affected her interaction with men.
“I didn’t go through that puberty stage where I sneak out to be with boys or just party or whatever. Growing up we lived with so many relatives, both male and female.
There was a time one of my male relatives tried to sleep with me when I was in class five. It really affected me, I didn’t want anything to do with men, going out and all that. I withdrew completely.
Even my mom came to know about these issues last year, this is a secret I have kept to myself all this while. It’s my cousin who tried to do that to me but he is departed now,” – Asigo.
She revelead that she learned a tough lesson and never allows relatives to visit her home.

“From then on, even now, how I live with my kids, if you are a relative you are not welcome in my house. Also if you are a parent please be very careful the people, especially relatives you bring around your kids,” she added.
She also urged mothers not to be so strict to their children and added on that having a conversation freely is important.
According to her, at that time her mother was very strict and she was afraid to tell her what happened.
“My mother was very strict and that prevented us from opening up to her. So, at least, I learnt a few things from that, as a parent I cannot be strict to that extreme level to make my kids scared of me.

If you are too strict your child will never talk to you about what they are going through. We need to befriend our kids so that they can open up. Just put the right boundaries,” said Asigo.
