Ruth James made headlines when she took to her Facebook account and confessed to her friends that she had infected over 100 men with HIV to revenge against men. Ruth who sounded depressed threatened to commit suicide after releasing photos of the men that she had allegedly infected with the deadly virus.
She shocked the entire nation with the revelation and her father came forward to calm the situation by saying that she was not mentally stable and Kenyans should disregard all her statements because she needs psychiatric review and treatment over her depression.
Today Ruth has released a statement apologizing to all the men that have been embarrassed and damaged by the story. Ruth revealed that she is suffering because of the story and she had been in Hospital since it broke out.
She refused to deny or accept the allegations but asked for her friends to continue praying for her. Ruth has revealed that she is a single mother and she will never commit suicide because she has a responsibility to take care of her son.
Ruth further revealed that her life is in danger after men she exposed threatened to kill her for damaging their reputation. She has disclosed that she is not the one that leaked those photos. It is the work of an unnamed blogger who illegally accessed her account and leaked them.
Here is the full statement by Ruth;
FROM: Ruth James (MIN NYANGILE)
I humbly write this while in tears, having been subjected to National troll and trending brought about by Tv stations, blogs, gazettes, and even on Radios.
I will not prove that am guilty over the allegations, rather than will only say sorry to the people that have been damaged emotionally by the trend.
I hereby confirm that am not the one who had posted the pictures that have been trending. It is one of the bloggers who went to my timeline and took out the pics.
Do you know how it hurts to trend nationally negatively with lies? All this time me lying on my sickbed?
All this even made two armed men follow me in my house, only for one of the posted affected to follow me. Some even go ahead to call my sibling with a private number to inform me that they will kill me.
I have been a laughing stock everywhere. Some, friends I thought would be there for me the go-ahead to do an audio of me with fake allegations. Awuoro kendo awuoro sana.
What I will say is this; the damage has already been done. Am sorry for the people whose pictures had been trending for no apparent reason.
Am sick and hospitalized far away from my apartment. I fear for my life. To a point of people following me where I stay. Am not safe.
