She says the elderly mother was brought to Kenya by a friend to his father, who promised to ensure she gets an education.

However, the friend turned the mother into a house-help and there was no education for her.

It was while she worked as a house-help that she met a Tanzanian man living in Kenya. They married and have six kids, Nyota Ndogo one of them.

“My mother comes from Zambia. She has not forgotten her roots and language. However, she does not know if her parents or siblings are alive. We don’t know any of her relatives. She says they were born 15. She was the last born. I want to go to Zambia to look for her family. She was brought to Kenya by her father’s friend who turned her into a house-help,” Nyota Ndogo narrated in Swahili.
