After her one-year marriage collapsed, Kiss 100 host Kamene Goro admitted that she had fallen into depression and attempted suicide.
Ms Goro stated in an interview with True Love Magazine revealed that she took roughly 70 sleeping pills in an attempt to end her life due to frustrations, a decision she regretted.
“Towards the end of my marriage I was depressed. I popped about 70 sleeping pills to end it all. But just when I started to feel woozy, I heard a still voice asking, do you not trust me handle this for you. Thankfully there was an AAR a few doors from where I lived. I drove myself there and got my stomach pumped.”
Kamene Goro said her marriage lasted for a about 1 year:
“Yes my marriage lasted for a about 1 year but we had been together for four years. We had been a civil wedding and were planning a destination one. He was a serial cheat and I busted him a couple of times. I moved to Tanzania to be with him but there was a time he got me sick and I had to come to Nairobi for treatment.”
Despite the difficulties she was facing at the time, the media personality admitted that other ladies kept pushing her to fight for her marriage, even though it was evident that things were not going well.
Kamene Goro on women misleading each other:
“Women contribute to each other’s suffering by misleading each other. He cheated on me till I tried suicide yet I was still being told to hang on. Hang on to what? What kind of role model are you to your daughters when that is the standard you are setting? The kids will be messed up if you stay despite the cheating, the beating and him not providing. You owe it to them to give yourself better life. Only one woman told me I didn’t deserve that kind of treatment and if I loved myself I should leave. That was five days before the relationship ended.”
Following her disappointments, Kamene claims she became a workaholic in order to fill her days.
“I threw myself into my work. I would get into the office at 7 am in the morning and leave at around 11pm, go have a glass of wine then get home at 1 pm for two hours sleep before starting all over again” said the Kiss 100 Presenter.
She also stated that marriage is now not on her priority list.
