House maids challenge
A delegate from the civil society yesterday threw a daunting challenge to the women folk. After he eloquently made his position about the insecurity, youth unemployment and ruling class corruption, he did the unexpected. He challenged women delegates at the conference to lead by example. He said women complain of marginalisation, lack of empowerment and even domestic abuse, among others.
He challenged them to begin charity at home by “treating their house maids at home like their own children.”
He said women who complain of all manner of ills meted out to them should “also stop discriminating against their house maids. The same women that are crying of being marginalised are also maltreating their house maids.”
The activist explained that women now treat their maids in despicable manner. He cited instances where the women would send their children to school while the maids are slaving at home.
The situation is actually beyond that. The media is awash with reports of house maids being crucified by their masters.
