    Why weren’t we taught about about this woman and the good works she’s doing? Why isn’t she a topic of conversation? This is a positive female role model.

    We have women like her. We need people like her supporters to amplify the voices of women like her, shouting out loud about the need to end injustice. I faced injustice in Nigeria and New Jersey, but my focus is not to punish but to ensure other women do not suffer. Our world is safer without rape - of mind (fraud) and body. Please share, repost and retweet till your government do something to end widow abuse, inheritance fraud and successor rights crime. Thank YOU. twitter.com/AnneMuyiwa/status/1257461952164573185

    She was my neighbor, and after she died, the tree she had planted at the village was cut down,. We have bad governance and shameless people 😔
