Her fears were confirmed, what was planned to be a birthday to remember took a huge toll on Zainab’s mental health that she’s still catering to a year after.
The journey turned into a visit to hell when she woke up and found a man in her room.
“I started to feel my hands stroking someone’s penis. At this moment, I opened my eyes to confirm if It was actually a dream or I was in real danger. Low and behold, it wasn’t a dream. There was a naked man lying on my bed and touching me at 2am in my hotel room ! He started calling me “baby” and then I became scared cause the room was dark as I had switched off the lights before I went to bed. Now, I was extremely scared. I asked the man “who are you?” But all he kept saying was “baby, baby” . I asked in a louder tone this time around cause I was getting angry and then he quickly stuffed his hands over my mouth in an attempt to stop me from shouting.”
Zainab who was still deploying means to waddle out of her predicament noted that she threatened the strange naked man in her hotel room with HIV. Despite not understanding English, the local man, who communicated in Swahili, picked the universal HIV term and retrieved in his pursuit of forcefully penetrating the helpless woman under him.
“I was crying profusely now and needed to find a quick way to distract him so I started begging him not to rape me but he didn’t understand English as he kept on speaking Swahili to me. I then lied to him that I have HIV and he’d need to get a condom before sleeping with me.”
The HIV scare wasn’t going to be enough to make the alleged perpetrator give up on his sinister plans. He got dressed and gave himself a raincheck to be back with a condom.
“Immediately he left, I switched on the light, tried to call hotel reception but to my surprise, there was no intercom or phone lines to reach the hotel reception through the he room.”
Zainab ran out of the room, and eventually found help from the Russians she made friends with. In the morning, she realised he stole her money.
