Former News Anchor and Gender Equality Advocate, Janet Mbugua, has spoken out against an incident, where her husband and his brother are caught on Camera assaulting two ladies in a top city hotel.
“I’m saddened by the increasing incidents of Gender-Based Violence. I condemn all forms of GBV irrespective of who is involved and will continue to speak out against it. We have laws in Kenya and justice must prevail.” Janet Mbugua said in a tweet.
News of the assault involving the twin brothers Paul and Eddie Ndichu has been trending on social media since last evening after the victims exposed the incident.
The two, who are visibly drunk and staggering in the footage, allegedly got offended after one of the ladies turned down their advances.
Netizens condemned the incident and applauded Janet Mbugua’s courage in condemning the incident, with a majority calling for Eddie to be held accountable for his actions without people dragging the wife or ex-wife into the saga.
Below are some of the reactions shared;
Lucy Muthui: I choose to use the Janet Mbugua trend to celebrate the amazing work she is doing at Inua Dada. Congratulations @OfficialJMbugua on launching Inua Dada Centre in Korogocho.
Cindy4Real: Now that we’re talking about Janet Mbugua,she’s the founder of #InuaDada that promotes menstrual health and seeks to provide girls with a safe space. Support that instead of associating her with Eddie Ndich.
kenyanchild: Referring to the Eddie Ndichu, the violent abuser, as Janet Mbugua’s husband is shifting focus from the perpetrators and putting it on an innocent woman and a potential victim.
#Allergictoinjusticeandbadgovernance: Let us normalize holding men accountable alone, without dragging the women attached to them who have nothing to do with their embarrassing escapades. The only thing that should be trending about Janet Mbugua is her recent Inua Dada foundation launch.
