Kenyan Evaline Momanyi has broken her social media frenzy revealing that she had to take a break from Instagram after her daughter was burnt with hot water.
Momanyi, a board member to the Africa Advisory Board of Save the Children UK, says she was at work when she was informed that her 1-year-old daughter Kwanza had been burnt.
The incident happened last week when baby Kwanza was under the care of a nanny.
“Well hello everyone. First of all, I am okay. Thanks for all the DMs asking if I’m cool. Its always good to take some time out. And to be honest, I’m very busy at work.Mid last week, I got an accident in the house. I know when something happens to someone’s baby, guys are always like….how? I am so ‘routine and rule-based’ that when I got a call from work that Miss. K had got burnt with hot water….. I was like….WHAT! Yes, this happened.,” Evaline Momanyi posted to Instagram.
She assured her fans that the baby is doing well, noting that the accident was as a result of the nanny’s “careless oversight”.
“It was an accident, but it was a careless oversight from my Nanny. But guess what, as I sat in hospital….everyone was shaking about what will happen when I go back home. Anyone who knows me, its not good to be around me when I’m angry. Guess what, I was calm…I didn’t even cause. I just said…. I hope this is a lesson,” narrated Janet Mbugua’s sister-in-law.
Momanyi further said she will share her lessons with other mums.
“Will share my lessons….but the biggest I have learnt as a mum…Accidents happen, but it can be also with YOU as the mum. I thank God, baby is okay and healing well. You want to know how kids are resilient…..see a baby with burn marks running around and living her best play life . Her nanny loves her and I saw how much it broke her heart and she was clear on the negligence on her part,” wrote Everline.
