A young Nigerian lady, Chiwetalu Charity, with ‘short legs’ has lamented that men are ashamed of taking her out by reason of her condition.
The 300 level undergraduate explained that men would rather she remained inside. Chiwetalu recalled a particular conversation with a man in which he revealed that moving in public with her appeared that he was walking with a child.
Chiwetalu told BBC News Pidgin that she wasn’t born with ‘short legs.’ According to the Enugu State University of Science and Technology accountancy student, when she was very much younger, it was noticed that there wasn’t any blood flowing through the veins in her legs.
This resulted in her legs getting rotten. Chiwetalu was taken to different hospitals in search of a solution until it was recommended that the legs be amputated to save her.
The confident lady stated that despite discrimination she had faced from both genders, she is an asset. Chiwetalu said that the man who finds her has got a wife.
