The daughter of a murdered woman whose killer was featured on last Friday’s controversial episode of Xarabank has uploaded an emotional video expressing how disappointed she was with the show giving him airtime.
Kenneth Gafà, the man who was sentenced to 35 years in prison for killing her mother in 2015, had appeared on the show talking about the state of Malta’s prison.
“I wanted to do this video because I find myself very disappointed and very angry with what was shown last Friday on Xarabank”
Caricia opened up about the disappointment, anger, and pain of seeing Kenneth Gafà on national television last Friday evening.
“Imagine seeing this man on television, playing the victim, like he has no fault in this,” she said. “And Xarabank is giving him all this publicity so he can say these things.”
She pointed to her viral comment, saying: “The comment I wrote on Xarabank, which I have nothing to remove or add to, is the whole truth, and from my heart.”
Referring to Kenneth Gafà talking about prisoners losing their visitation rights, saying she would never ever be able to see her mother.
“I can never see my mother for even one minute because this man just up and killed my mother,” she said emotionally.
Caricia spoke about Mr Gafà’s aggressive behaviour before he shot Caricia’s mother, speaking about the domestic violence she witnessed at his hands.
“He was possessive, a person who would think: ‘if she can’t belong to me, she can’t belong to anyone’.”
Mr Gafà would stalk Caricia and her mother and would know their location due to someone from a local telecoms company leaking their whereabouts. Caricia said she was currently suing the person in court.
“Not a day passes where I don’t think of my mother, where I don’t miss my mother”
She also took aim at Peppi Azzopardi in some harsh words.
“You truly don’t have heart or dignity. Shame on you, all of you should be ashamed,” she said.
She ended the video by thanking all the people who had reached out to her with kind words following the episode, saying that they made her want to keep fighting for her mother’s cause.
