Posted September 28, 2015 from Nigeria

One early morning, in the serene and sleepy village of Amaekpu. There was commotion and pandemonium, women filled out in their large numbers bearing palm fronts and other leaves in demonstration against a certain man. The woman threaten to abandon their difference homes if their concern was not properly addressed.

The man at the middle of the chaos was an elderly native doctor who was believed to have super natural power and this provoke fear among the villagers. The old native doctors, decided to build his house directly adjacent to the village public female toilet since the village still practice OPEN DEFECATION. Women and girls of all works of life regularly visit there to answer the call of nature.

Unknowing to the innocent women who uses the toilet, the erotic native doctors mounted a secret camera in a way to have a complete view of the women while using the toilet. The clip became an object of sexual satisfaction between him and his amorous friends.

Trouble started when one of his friends got drunk and started revealing information to various women on the pattern of shaving of their private parts. The women in astonishment and embarrassment, demanded to know the source of his information, act of humiliation, the women reported the matter to the leadership of the village women organization. He was promptly summon

by the entire women and after an intense interrogation, he divulge the source of his information.

The women were overwhelmed by the suppose spiritual power of the native doctor and in awe, the pleaded with the men to intervene on their behalf. The mention of the native doctor name scare the men who kept on delaying the case and could not handle it well. In frustration, the women mobilized on that early morning and stormed the native doctors residence dropping in their thousand the palm fronts and other leaves in his premises. The women bravely gave the man three days ultimatum to appear before them and answer charges levied against him.

On the expiration of the three days ultimatum, the notorious witch doctor vehemently refused to appear before the women instead he insisted that they should come and clear the mess they dumped in his premises or faced unpleasant consequences .

In anger, the women in collaboration with women from other neighbouring villages matched down for the finanal show down. On sighting the intimidating crowd, the abominable native doctor took to his heels

The uncontrollable crowd in the process brought down his building rubbish. The action gave so many women the courage to stand for what they want, because if the had depended on their husband who could not matched the native doctor for the fear of being killed,they women would have still remain in bondage and the evil could have still continue.

This is the power of collaboration. If all women will come together, hand in hand,all the unpleasant situation women are subjected to will be taking care off

Thanks Jane for this eye opener. i didnot think that men could actually stoop this low. This is a real violation of the womens human right to privacy. This was totally unacceptable and am extremely overjoyed that the women stood up for their rights and fought for themselves even when the men feared to protect them. 

This goes to show that when women decide on what they beleive in then they can change the world. 

Continue to post encouraging stories of women in your community. 

Stay blessed my dear sister.

Dear Janekalu,

Thank you for sharing this incident because it will let women know about the various issues faced by women. This issue brings shame upon the men for taking advantage of the trsut women placed in them. Such men do not know the difference between a mother, a sister, and a daughter. Whats worse is that they commented on the physical features of the women after spying on them using a toilet for basic needs. Pathetic! What the women did is commendable. I know many women in India who keep quiet and suffer because they reliy on the men folk to react. The men do not do much leaving the women to weep and wail. This incident breaks away from this situation of weeping and wailing. They all acted and reacted. United they stood and took justice. Again, this proves the strength women have. Use it!

We are all there!

Dear Jane,

The story is one that teaches women that we have power when we unite as one,even more than men.The synergy of women is such a one that can change the world.Women should stop hating and fighting, but rise up to fight the cause that support, women and children because they are the most vunerable and the marginalise in the society.

Nice lesson for this time.
