‘Today, history beckons as I add my voice to the movement that will hopefully inspire the abolishment of widows’ maltreatment in our communities.
‘It’s heartbreaking to realize that with all the societal advancements, a reasonable segment of our society which constitutes over eight million disadvantaged widows and 24 million children below age 17 are still subject to maltreatment that include; domestic violence, sexual assault, conversion of properties, forced evictions, neglects, denial of human rights and the list goes on.
‘I stand with widows today, will you join me?’
