In past interviews, Letoya opened up about how she was molested just after high school.
Immediately after high school, something that is really sensitive and so unfortunate from my side happened. There was a time I was in Homa Bay in 2007. I was so young and was beautiful, with glowing skin. Dressed like a girl. Hell broke loose and I was grabbed and thrown into the ditch and got badly raped. I almost lost my life.
She said she visited a hospital but the doctor was of no help, leaving her traumatised.
I went to the district hospital and the doctor on duty refused to treat me because he was Muslim and told my mum that he could not treat me because I was sleeping with people of my gender. He said I was looking for people to rape me, adding that I wanted to be a woman. That is how my parents came to learn that I was A TRANSGENDER.
Had never had sex with anyone whatsoever. While in school, nobody wanted to be with Letoya, who now wants to be identified as a “she”. I was in my own space and nobody liked me and no parents wanted me to be with their children. Neither did the society welcome me because I was always the different one. I got traumatized.
