“Today I met an innocent looking girl, I actually thought she was 15years old with a new born baby, she was looking pale, hungry and confused,” she wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday, January 20, 2024.
“I asked her story, she’s 21, she was a bar girl, got pregnant for the love of her life a fellow hotel worker who has now absconded, her boss chased her away and her mother told her not to come to her, that the man responsible must take charge.
“Her mother is with her new family, she doesn’t know her father, it’s a cycle repeating itself.
“My heart aches and I want her story to change.
“I asked her what she can do and she said she could sell if she was given money to start.
“I gave her some money and asked her to come back on Tuesday to see what we can do for her to start something.“
