Convicted thief Mai TT has revealed that she believes God put her behind bars for a reason and she has accepted her fate in Chikurubi Female Prison.
The disgraced socialite, speaking exclusively to H-Metro from the prison, said: “I am still coming to terms with the uncomfortable environment and having to stay behind these walls.”
Mai TT recalled how years earlier she had wanted to spend a night in the prison to experience the tough conditions and donate food and sanitary wear. But officials denied her request.
She said: “Little did I know that one day I would be counted among the inmates. I want to believe God saw something good in me visiting and donating, which is why I am here now.”
The once-celebrated socialite said a “new chapter” has started and she needs “grace to endure” her prison sentence. She described her current situation as “mutsanyo” – a painful situation.
Mai TT urged her critics to keep mocking her, saying: “It is my prayer that all those mocking me continue to do so, maybe I will find favour in God’s eyes and He will get me out of this place.”
At a party hosted for inmates’ children by Collen Abrahams, Mai TT mingled and danced with other prisoners. She thanked Collen and his family for the event in a long prayer.
The disgraced celebrity – once known for her lavish lifestyle – has been humbled by her prison ordeal. But she believes God put her through this for a reason and has accepted her fate, hoping divine grace will see her through.
