Kemunto Diana speaks on the reality of her viral salacious confessions

Social media influencer Kemunto Diana has found herself entangled in the controversy surrounding her viral Instagram confessions.

Originally gaining recognition for her advice to young urban women on navigating city life and hustling tactics, Kemunto’s recent revelations skyrocketed her popularity.

But as the spotlight intensifies, so does the scrutiny over the authenticity of these revelations.

In a candid interview with Kenyan online media, Kemunto addresses the allegations of exploitation head-on.

She vehemently denies any involvement in fabricating the confessions, insisting they originate from genuine anonymous sources, some utilizing pseudonymous accounts for privacy.

With over a thousand unshared confessions flooding her inbox, Kemunto reveals her hesitancy in divulging some due to their sensitive nature.

“I have a brain. If I were to do those stories on my own then I would have started the first time I trended for city girls. The stories are not fake, the confessions are very real. I can’t hire 10,000 people to write stories or open 10,000 accounts to fake stories. I have about 1039 zenye sijapost (that I have not posted yet.) And I am scared of what might happen if I do. You have seen the impact that the whole issue has had so far,” she asserts, dismissing claims of orchestration.

The decision to amplify these confessions stemmed from a personal experience—an encounter with a friend battling a virus.

Inspired by her friend’s resilience, Kemunto felt compelled to provide a platform for others to share their struggles openly.

“I have a friend who lives positively. Her story pushed me to give people this platform to confess the things they are going through. The confessions have been there for like six months. She told me to go tell other people what was happening,” she said.

Despite her altruistic intentions, Kemunto admits to the toll these confessions take on her mental well-being.

“I have not even posted the worst confessions yet. Sometimes it’s very heavy on my side. It’s weighing me down because sometimes I want to focus on other things but when I see someone’s story I feel motivated to help this person. Mentally I am not okay. I’m not even focusing on important things in my life.”

She added, “When I get these confessions on my timeline, I repost them for awareness. For the ones who use pseudo-accounts and inbox me with real accounts, I always take my time to advise them.”
