“I forgive them” – Reality star, Thelma writes as she recounts what she went through growing up in the abusive home of a relative


Big Brother Naija star and actor, Thelma Belema, has recounted her experience as a child growing up in an abusive relative’s home.

Taking to her official Twitter page to narrate the ugly experience, Thelma said that growing up she lived with a relative and they treated her badly.

She narrated how the wife, who was HIV positive, spat in her mouth at a time and how the couple would flog her mercilessly for no reason.

She said she was eventually removed from the abusive environment after a concerned relative informed her mother of what she was going through.

She further revealed that a few weeks after she left their home, the couple died of HIV.

“Years ago when I was a kid staying with a relative of mine, she was married and was living with her husband but no child. This woman would flog me koboko in the night for no reason and the husband would wake me up with koboko in the morning telling me it’s his turn…” She wrote in part.
