Boniface Mwangi is well-known for his political activism where calls out our misbehaving leaders without fear or favour.
But sometimes the man is touched by the urge to speak on social issues that affecting the country as a whole.
This past week has featured a lot of horrible news where partners (particularly men) have been killing their lovers.
The issue has so burned Mr. Mwangi's soul that he decided to speak about it on his socials. The father of 3 started out by warning people in relationships that they should leave once their partner is violent with them.
"I support divorce and separation any day, everyday. If someone doesn’t feel safe in their marital home, they should leave. If s/he is violent once, they will do it again."
He added that if God hated divorce that she should marry the abusive partner himself;
"If “god” hates divorce, he can marry that abusive partner but the abused/mistreated spouse should leave. The vows of “till death do us apart” have made many people stay in abusive marriages. A couple friend of ours made a vow to do life together until they can’t do it anymore."
He then urged Kenyans to stop allowing society to pressure them into such marriages;
"Don’t let society pressure you to stay in unhappy relationship. Leave. Prioritize your happiness not vows. Even if you don’t fall in love again, you will be alive and safe. Don’t be a statistic of abusive marriages."
The activist then spoke about kids who grow up in abusive marriages saying that they grew up with trauma, so even staying for children doesn't help.
Boniface then finished off by speaking about the late Kenyan athlete, Agnes Tirop, saying that she would still be alive hadn't society forced her to stay in the marriage with her abusive and jealous husband.
He then urged Kenyans to share their testimonies on how they had left abusive relationships.
