Isaac Mwaura has opened up about how he is coping following the tragic loss of his two babies last year.
The Nominated Senator says he had to be strong for his wife with help from the Almighty.
“I did not want my wife to get drained by the whole situation and therefore I focused and God gave me grace,” he told Word Is.
“I am a happy dad of one surviving child from my triplets. I love the way we play around with him because he reminds me that if his brother and sister would be alive today, they would have also been like him because they looked alike,” he said.
On juggling between family and politics, Mwaura said, “It is a challenge to be a family man and a politician because I have to travel a lot and leave my family for some time. I have a very understanding wife.”
He also opened up about social media bullying revealing that some people say that he sacrificed his two children.
“People attack me on the basis of albinism and tell me nitauzwa [I will be sold in] Tanzania. They even say that I sacrificed my children. In the beginning, you feel the trolls but over time you realise it is common and decide to just laugh because that is when you are making an impact,” said Mwaura.
He concluded: “I even thought of blocking the trolls but realised that is a way of attracting traffic on their timelines, through posting controversial sentiments on my timelines.”
