Last week Wednesday, Rinelda Mouton, a Namibian journalist carried an exclusive interview in which Dillish and her family sought to meet her real father.
Indeed the family met .In a Google hangout organized by the Kenyan Embassy in Namibia and the Standard Group, Selma Pashukeni (Dillish’s mother) and Abdi were able to talk to each other for the first time in close to 23 years.
Selma was joined by the Kenyan Ambassador to Namibia, Peter Gitau, Dillish Uncle and Aunt. Abdi was at the Standard Group offices for the hangout.
