What was meant to be a love adventure trip for a British woman has turned into a nightmare after a near accident that almost killed her.
Tinu Collins, 25, from Manchester quit her three cleaning jobs in April and came to Kenya to stay with her fiancée on what was to be a three-month trip.
Instead she ended up at the Nairobi Women’s Hospital with a bruised spine, broken pelvic bone, left leg and a fractured right ankle.
She came to Kenya on May 26 and had been staying with her lover in one of the city’s suburbs before the accident happened.
Her ex-boyfriend, Kenyan musician Bradley Juma Obomi, popularly known as Trap King Chrome, allegedly pushed her from the sixth floor of Sunview apartment in Lavington area.
She was later picked up by policemen and taken to Nairobi Women Hospital and now almost 5 months later, she’s stranded in Kenya and detained in hospital over a Sh3 million bill.
Desperate, lonely, broke and without a passport which was taken by the police after the incident, Collins is praying the Kenyan government deports her back home since her visa expired in July.
Her family back home has failed to raise the bill since her mother is sick and jobless.
She says the British High Commission has not been helpful either. Her ex-lover Braddley, has since dumped her. He was arrested on the night of the incident but no charges were brought against him.
Tinu and Trapking’s friends have now launched a fundraising drive to pay for her treatment.
“He said he is going to contribute to the bill that is the only communication we have had ever since. But right now I only want to go home. I am wondering why Kenya has not deported me yet,” said Collins during the interview.
“Everyone has abandoned me including my country. My last hope was the Nairobi Governor after someone told me he helps such cases but it seems my messages have never reached him,” she told Sunday Standard as tears rolled down her face.
