Former Real Househelps of Kawangware actress Truphena, whose real name is Aisha Nour, has revealed that her son, Ubbaydah, died two weeks after she had been arrested on theft suspicion in late November, 2016.
Ubbaydah succumbed to an illness on December 7, 2016.
Truphena said a video camera worth Ksh400, 000, which she had hired on behalf of her then-boyfriend, got lost, prompting the camera owner to lodge a legal complaint against her.
“I had hired someone else’s video camera on behalf of my boyfriend; and had the agreement registered under my name. He misplaced the camera while using it. I do not know who stole it from him, or how he misplaced it. After informing the camera owner that I had misplaced the device, I was arrested and detained at Central Police Station. I was later arraigned at Milimani Law Courts for theft.
“My son at that time was 11 months old. Given, I was in police custody, my son could not be detained alongside me. He was taken away. I did not know where he was. How I wish I was allowed to be with him in police custody. I understand death is unavoidable, but I could have watched him die in my hands, in my presence.
“Two days later, I was released on bond, and reunited with my son, who was putting up at a relative’s place. I took him to my parents’ home in Mumias, and returned to the city to look for money to compensate the camera owner.
“Two weeks later, my mum called and told me that my son was dead. She told me that he succumbed to an infection. By the time I traveled to Mumias, my son was already buried according to Islamic practice. I did not see him lifeless. I did not take part in his burial,” said Truphena.
The actress says she later managed to settle her case out of court, but says her boyfriend betrayed her – he was not there with her – or for her –, when she was going through hell; a hell, she said, was created by him.
Truphena says she has left The Real House helps of Kawangware show, which airs on KTN, because she “wants to explore and grow her personal brand.”
