Actress Patricia Kihoro has cut ties with popular actor Nick Mutuma after he was accused of sexual assault.

In a series of tweets, Kihoro described her intial silence regarding the matter as ignorance.

“It was cowardly of me not to do so because of the fact that Nick is someone I have known and worked with for over a decade. I should have held him accountable especially because of it, and I am sorry I didn’t until now. There is no excuse and I am sorry.” She tweeted

She further added that after having a conversation with the actor and seeking advice from other sources, she has decided to cut ties with the actor and film producer.

“I spoke to Nick on Friday last week at length. I should have done so much earlier but because I know both Koome and Nick, to varying degrees personally, I chose to slowly distance myself from the situation. This was cowardly and wrong on my part. What steps am I taking going forward? I will not work with him, or any other abuser, and will not amplify projects that he or any other abuser is involved in, whether or not I am a part of it. We shot Disconnect before the accusations became public, but what we do now matters.” She said

Kihoro also asked the actor to take responsibility for his actions arguing that just because one person forgave him does not mean all the other victims have.

“I spoke to Nick on Friday last week at length. I should have done so much earlier but because I know both Koome and Nick, to varying degrees personally, I chose to slowly distance myself from the situation. This was cowardly and wrong on my part.  Disconnect on Netflix is a win, and so many other people worked hard for this, but there will be other wins. I’m sure of that. So for now, @nickmutuma and we spoke about this, do the right thing. One person forgiving you does not speak for the others.” She added
