"I am Only Allowed to See My Child For 9 Hours in a Year" Woman Emotionally Narrates

Elizabeth Thuita has emotionally narrated how she was restricted to seeing her daughter for only 9 hours in an year.

Elizabeth says that she separated with her husband in 2012. At the time, her husband was not faithful and he went as far as abusing their house helps.

When they separated, Elizabeth gave her ex husband access to the child.

However, on one fateful day, he stole the child and that was the beginning of Elizabeth's mystery. The child was only 1 year 10 months at the time.

Elizabeth filed a case at the police station but her ex kept on bribing judges and police, leading to a delay of the case. He also relocated to Nakuru, making it hard for Elizabeth to see her baby.

Elizabeth only got to see her daughter when she was 4 years old. At the time, the child couldn't even recognize her. Fortunately, the children's court granted her access to her child on every Friday from 9am to 5pm.

With time, she bonded with the child but sadly, after some time, he ex started making things hard and for 5 more years, she never saw her child. Her ex kept on transfering the child from one school to another.

When the child was 9 years old, Elizabeth went to her school to visit. 

Her daughter couldn't believe she was her mother because all along, her father had told her that her stepmother was her real mother. He had also lied to her that her mother was a kidnapper and she should run away incase she sees her.

That day, Elizabeth went back home with her child but after two days, police came to her house and took her. She was given a court order allowing her to see the child for only 9 hours in a year.

Elizabeth has been in and out of court trying to get full custody of her child. She hopes that justice will be served.
