Popular Kenyan actress Catherine Kamau aka Kate Actress has opened up on her distress following what she terms as the ‘early pregnancy epidemic’.
According to Kate, this came after she received numerous messages from young pregnant girls asking her for advice since she has gone through a similar situation.
Taking to Instagram, the former Mother-In-Law actress pleaded with other young girls not to get pregnant before they reach their dreams.
In the lengthy post, Kate cautioned that young girls should not look up to her and think because she made it, everything is going to work out for them too.
“Can we stop telling young girls it’s okay when they fall pregnant? Because it’s not! Just because the person you look up to made it doesn’t mean you will, we are different and we come from different backgrounds. Think about your parents who are sacrificing everything for you. If you are already there, please learn from it and be rest assured, your life will never be the same, it’s not about you anymore.
“That baby is your life now! If you are thinking of getting pregnant to keep a man who will disgrace you, I promise you, he will in a few months, please my dear, DON’T! Please wait! It’s a beautiful thing when you just wait a little! Secure the future young queen. Aki sikizeni tu,” she wrote.
Messages making her angry
Kate added that the DMs and messages she has been receiving make her angry sometimes.
“This teenage/early pregnancy epidemic just breaks my heart. They have so many people to learn from, so much information, The DMs and messages just make me angry sometimes. What is to be done? Haven’t we told our stories enough! Do you agree with my post this morning? The narrative has to change! It’s not okay young queen! Wait!” she emphasized.
