Kenyan artiste Kaz Karen Lucas has opened up on being sexually abused recently by someone she has known for a decade, losing her swimsuit in the process.
According to Kaz she keeps replaying the horrifying incident in her mind.
‘I recently acquired this obsession with swimsuits as a way of reclaiming my se8uality. Because I don’t want to go into the details of it, I’ll just share this little bit.
I was recently se8ually abused by someone that had been my friend of over 10 years. The incident involved a pool and 2 pairs of my swimsuits.
My swimsuits got lost in the war. BUT over the past few months, I’ve been going over and over it in my head of how I can RECLAIM my swimsuits ✊🏽.’
Kaz said that she wanted to go back to the scene where the incident occurred and face her abuser but she did not.
For the most part I wanted to go back to the scene of the crime, face my perpetrator and let them know how I felt and then get back my swimsuits.
I deliberated this thought the longest with phrases like ‘but they’re my property and I deserve to have them back’.
Kaz dropped the whole thing as it was causing her grief.
‘Eventually, I made the decision to drop the whole thing.
It was literally causing me so much grief!! I dropped everything, including the memory that anything happened to me.
But just to note that you really HONESTLY never know what someone is going through at any given time.’
