Kenyans online are sending encouraging messages to a Kenyan woman who says her boyfriend ditched her days after she lost her job as a radio host.
The lady identified as Anna Mukasa shared her story through Twitter on Wednesday, saying the 'love of her life' abandoned her just eight days after she was laid off early this year.
Similarly, her friends deserted her when she needed them most. This she says made her realize she had been living a lie.
"When I lost my job early this year, it took nine days for "the love of my life" to leave. Before it hit me that I had been living a lie, I had lost most friendships and mostly my pride," she tweeted.
"I've since learned that people only care for you if it benefits them," she wrote.
Twitter users sent consolation messages to her while others shared similar experiences.

@hmjumba said: "Your so-called friends are there only because you share something; pilots have pilot friends, farmers have farmer friends,nduthi guys have nduthi friends. I rem listening to @AndrewKibe_KE and it hit me there is nothing like "real friends" maybe your mother pekee!"
@ArnoldLuttah tweeted: "Sad but that’s life for you. Been there before and friends leave. They scramble back when it gets better and expect a warm embrace. I am slowly learning to put myself before anyone else."
@mureithik noted: "This is one of the biggest life lessons yet. its a turning point for you to take the RIGHT turn and never look back. when God wants to bless you he removes bad and toxic people in your life for you to receive. keep going they will be around to witness."
@jobwekesa quipped: "I've realized that as one approaches adulthood, 70 % of interactions and relationships are transactions. React to this by putting your interests first in the 70 % otherwise you'll cry premium tears."
