In her statement, Buku said she and her siblings and mother had not spoken to her father in years and that she had “no relationship” with him. “To the people that feel I should be speaking up against everything that is going on right now. I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently” she said.
“I pray for all the families & woman (sic) who have been affected… Trust, I have been deeply affected by all of this. However, it has been very difficult to process it all. Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel.”
“The same monster you are all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house.” She said.
