After the internet and social media at large went viral with the news of Sheila Gashumba being thumped to pulp by her Dad Frank Gashumba ,Her Dad has lately spoken out.
Sheila’s Dad Frank Gashumba has finally come out to talk about the saga.He says no one is going to tell him how to run his family.”No one is going to run my home. At my home, there is no democracy because no one elected me to be the father of Sheilah. At home, I set the rules and you must abide by them,” he said.
“Enough is enough. I took care of my daughter, taking her to the best schools. She is now a very successful young girl. There are very few young people who are as successful as she is,” Frank Gashumba added.
However Frank Gashumba said, despite being a young achiever, Sheilah has of late engaged in acts of indiscipline that he doesn’t like.
“She is disrespectful; comes home late at night. She is becoming another man in my home. I hear rights; children must be respectful to their parents.She did not sleep home. She returned home the following day with friends. I am helping her to avoid the company of wrong people who are abusing alcohol and drugs,” disappointed Gashumba remarked.
And when Gashumba was asked if he indeed beat up Sheilah, He responded, “Yes, when I asked Sheilah to explain why she never returned home, she started telling me stories. Awo empi nezivaayo (I gave her some slaps). If we all raise our kids to become responsible citizens, the entire world benefits from our works. If she became a president, the entire village, World would celebrate our success.
This is the reason I had considered getting counselors to talk to her because I deeply love that girl. I don’t want to see wrong people destroying her,,”Frank Gashumba concluded.
