Rosie’s on her health: “It happened when I was on a trip to Naivasha and I had too many headaches. I remember being called for breakfast and I could not open the door. Eventually after various knocks on my door, I managed to open it and collapsed right after… A chopper was sent to airlift me to Nairobi. The doctors said that if an ambulance had taken me then I would not have made it.”
Her reaction when she discovered she had a brain tumor; “For me it was something new. I had 2 aneurysms which were treatable here in Kenya but they were unable to get to the brain tumor”
Her toughest moment during that time; “The uncertainty because I never knew anybody who had suffered a stroke, lost vision, had aneurysm. I did not know anybody like myself whom I could draw strength from.”
On her transition: “The transition was very challenging, sometimes I could give up and find myself crying all the time; I am used to living a certain lifestyle where I am very independent; making my own choices in life then suddenly I was not able to do that. I am not able to choose the clothes I want to wear, not able to drive, go to the store or even cook. I felt hopeless at some point but I am lucky that I have a support system; my family, siblings, friends, extended family.”
Her current situation: “I do not really see with my left eye, my right eye vision is foggy, it is like seeing through a glass with water. I can see things that are very close to me but I cannot see things that are below or far.”
Her social and economic life; “Rosemary is a mother; I have 2 daughters. I am also a social entrepreneur; I run a foundation, I am a farmer, I love talking and working with people.”
Rubadiri; “Is politics something you would ever get back into?” “If God gives me an opportunity and people are willing to support me, then I will not shy away from a leadership position.” She responded.
