Speaking on the matter, Sonia who spoke with BBC on Friday shortly after the court judgement, said things may never be the same with her family again.
While holding back her tears, Sonia opined that she felt guilty over the whole situation, stating that her parents are jailed because of her ill health.
She said, “I don’t think it will ever be the same again. And obviously, I feel guilty because I feel like all these have happened because of me.
“Life is just some dynamic. Like you’re one day in your house chilling and the next day your whole life is turned around.”
