In a long post Akothee says the only people she helps who appreciate her help are her parents and grandparents.
“I am still a mother and I will always be that mother , my heart betrays me all the time, from one corner to the other ,
I have alot going on in my life , constantly , I AM left with family bills to clear, be it my mom ,dad ,grandparents. It’s always about “BENDE USEGOCHONE AKOTH” whatever it takes it’s all ME, One time a friend OF mine told me “Esther ,all this money you spend on your family ,please keep it for your children ,they will need it later that was Aunty Judi @judithleichum, But I don’t listen
When people wanted to own my life ,and jump onto my success,using Akothee foundation that is hardly a year old , with no sponsors or donors as a way of hurting me! I had to put it on hold and concentrate on my life and my children! It hurts when you do things innocently and people feel entitled , The only way to protect yourself from users is to say ” sorry I don’t have ” I HAVE DONE MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR MY FAMILY ! I KNOW SOME OF THEM FEEL BAD WHEN THEY SEE ME SUPPORT PEOPLE I DONT KNOW , BUT THE TRUTH IS ,I GET FULFILLED WHEN I HELP THOSE THAT ARE IN NEED AND EXPECT NOTHING.
Since I stopped dishing out money and attending to family problems apart from my parents & grandparents, I am hardly loved. My family have no idea of my wealth nor my whereabouts, even if I die today , they have no idea of whom is handling my will / Bill’s. They are guests in my life. I respect and love my family very much and the only way to keep the relationship is to love them from a far since I have no option but to love them.” She said in part
