- Businesswoman Michelle Ntalami has said that she protected her LGBTQ partner Makena Njeri’s dignity and will continue doing so despite their highly-publicised breakup
- According to her, she chose to be civil and hide the sensitive details and names of other parties out of the respect she has for the ex
- She added that this was informed by the good times they had together as well as the fact they had met each other’s family members
Michelle Ntalami has come forward to shed light on the reason behind her choosing to protect the dignity of her ex-lover Makena Njeri in the wake of their highly-publicised breakup last month.
A few days after the two parted ways, Michelle disclosed that she dumped her partner because of infidelity.
In an Instagram post, the 37-year-old explained that she had been heartbroken for a whole year after her partner cheated with two people among them a married woman.
“Those I suspected and confirmed are two individuals; one a public figure, and the other a less known married woman, a health worker. Eventually, these individuals undoubtedly confirmed the above,” she expressed.
She added that her pain was compounded by the fact that Makena never admitted to what she had done, let alone apologise, despite being given several chances the whole year to come clean.
Blurred identities and details
Despite sharing a lengthy narrative complete with screenshots, Michelle blurred the names and sensitive details of the other parties involved in the scandal.
“Out of kindness and to shield them from any potential attacks, I choose not to mention who these people are,” she explained.
According to her, she received volumes of information from concerned friends, observers and well-wishers regarding the affairs especially with influential people or those in the limelight.
Michelle thanked her family and fans for supporting her, saying she will never delete any photos she took with her partner.
Protected her dignity due to respect
Speaking to Mpasho, the entrepreneur explained that even in the wake of the bitterness and feelings of being used, she chose to protect the dignity of her ex-lover out of respect.
“There have been good times. This is someone who had met my family, my mum, my brothers and my sisters. You cant just really throw them in the mud,” she noted.
According to her, sharing the pain was about her and not her estranged lover, therefore, had no intention to tarnish the name nor make her look bad.
She added that since Makena was the party she had broken up with, there was bound to be collateral damage.
