Tanzanian billionaire Reginald Mengi’s widow has finally opened up about being mistreated by her in laws ever since her husband’s death. Jacqueline Mengi took her social media to reveal that she had decided to remain silent but things have been getting worse by the day.
According to Jacqueline, the in-laws have been denying her together with the children, access to her late husband’s grave. She also narrated how they are chased away from the grave area and even have to beg or ask for permission so that they can be permitted to visit.
Jacqueline revealed that she was so fed up with seeing her children go through sorrow as a result of the bad treatment and this is one of the reasons why she was forced to speak.
“Nimenyamaza kwa mengi sana tu.Mmefikia hatua ya kunizuia mimi na wanangu kuingia kwenye kaburi la mume wangu,tunafukuzwa eti mpaka tuombe ruhusa ya kuingia kwenye kaburi la mume na Baba wa watoto wangu!.
Nimechoka,sitakubali kuendelea kuona wanangu wakisononeka na sitakaa kimya.” She wrote
