Kenya – Chang’aa, a liquid nightmare

Lucy Waithira Wanjohi, 65, is the mother of eight children. She lives in Mukurueini. “Her three children that were born after the death of her first child are alcoholics and drug addicts. “I began to have epileptic fits after the death of my husband. He was often violent and I was forced to sleep outside the home. The worst experience was with my son Kamau. He urinated and defecated all over his house. He threatened us, we were afraid. He refused food because he was afraid that we would put a spell on him. I asked for help from the village chief and he put me in touch with Saint Martin CSA, which is now helping me. Now I live with my granddaughter since my oldest son left her to me after his divorce from his wife; she too is a chang’aa addict”.
