Renowned journalist Louis Otieno’s son Silas Miami has refused to visit his ailing mum, whom he accuses of being abusive.
In a tweet, he disclosed that he learnt about her ailment through a third party since they are not on talking terms.
“I’m told my abusive mother is very unwell. But this information was relayed to me by a third party because she is too proud to reach out herself,” he wrote.
“Even at death’s door, she refuses to swallow it and apologise. That is what narcissism looks like. Sending thoughts and prayers.”
The tweet from Silas attracted many reactions, with his followers asking him to forgive his mother.
However, Silas dismissed the advice arguing that the pain he went through at the hands of his biological mum cannot be erased.
He further urged people not to excuse abusive parents.
“If you’re a survivor of narcissistic abuse and you’re following the wild happenings over here, I need you to know that I see you, your pain is valid. I believe you. And you’re going to be just fine. You deserved better and you owe nothing to those who harmed you. You are loved
“I really want to know where people purchase the nerve, cheek and gumption to speak to me as they know me personally. Where is the source of this audacity? To give a stranger ‘advice’ on their pain with such forwardness?” He wrote.
