“We used to hang out as girls, about four of us, very good friends- quite long ago. So, some men would join us. One of them would tell me, I will get you one day. I was a virgin then. So one day, I got a little bit too drunk and the story is, he was taking me home. I never got home that night.”

She managed to move on yet.

“It is hard to come out after a rape ordeal. But the first step toward healing is to accept that it happened and forgive the offender.”

Adelle Onyango

At just 19 years old, she was raped with her friends when they left for a night out.

When she left her phone inside their car, and decided to walk to the next club within Westlands, that is when hell broke loose for her.

“This guy showed up and I keep emphasizing this point because people think rapists have a ‘look’ but they don’t. When this guy showed up he looked so harmless, he looked like someone I went to school with.

They started mingling with the stranger at that night.

He offered to walk me to the club and I agreed to it. I thought it was kind of him to have offered but then we took a route that was quite dark, and I remember wondering why we were taking it, but I was fuzzy from too much alcohol and my judgement wasn’t the best.

Then before she could save herself, things were beyond her capacity

We didn’t make it to the club. He pushed me to the ground, and it was on the grass that he raped me. Luckily, there was a kiosk nearby, one that I still see to-date, and after I came to, the shopkeeper saw me, he put two and two together, gave me his phone and asked me to call a number. Any number that came to mind. I called a friend of mine who picked me up, we then went to get our friends at the other club, and although they wanted to rush me to a hospital, I just really wanted to go home first.”

It took her time to heal, but she had to accept and move on

“By the time I realized my super-woman complex way of handling things wasn’t working, and I needed to tell someone who was close to me. As soon as I told my mum, it became so much easier to deal with, because at least then, I had someone in my court. And that’s how the journey to healing began.”

“The guy did not succeed because I fought him hard and luckily it was chilly so I was wearing jeans and boots. It took him too long to take them off me but I always wonder to myself what if he had succeeded? What if I was wearing say a dress?! Wouldn’t it have left a permanent scar on my soul?

She managed to heal and shared an advice for such victims

“I urge all rape victims and attempted rape to speak up. Those sheikhs counselled me and told me it is not something to be embarrassed about because it was not my fault at all. He was just a bad evil person who did not fear God. So speak up ladies.”
