Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi has taken to his Instagram to express his sentiments on divorce. The popular photo-journalist recently defended Lillian Nga’ng’as relationship with Juliani after the duo got attacked by fans.

Juliani was on the receiving end for being alleged to have stolen a governor’s wife (Lillian Ng’ang’a). However, Lillian made it clear that she chose Juliani and she’s happy.

Lillian’s separation with Mutua was however an amicable one-at least that’s what they told us.

According to Boniface, there’s no problem with separation; (divorce) especially when the partner is toxic. He wrote on his Instagram;

”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. 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.

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. Kids brought up in abusive marriages grow up with wounds.

So even staying for the children doesn’t help them. Athlete Tirop would be alive today if society hadn’t forced her to reconcile with her abusive and jealous husband. If you have ever left a relationship because of an abusive partner, it could be emotional or physical, please share in the comments and give someone the courage to walk away.”
