Half the time, domestic violence is caused by women – Monalisa Chinda

In an interview with Okey Bakassi on Channels TV’s The Other News, Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda told Nigerian women to stop provoking their men into punches and slaps.

The question was based around the recent controversial statements made by Dr Lola Akande, Lagos State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

While noting that she’s never been a victim, the gorgeous mother of one said:

“It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role,”

“They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatises these women. So you just swallow your pride. When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about sexual abuse, but not here.” she added.

Speaking further, Chinda also urged women to quit “provoking” their husband.

“As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man by beating punches and slaps,” she said.

“I’m a domestic violence [enthusiast]. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Half the time, it is the women.

“God just gave us this running Okra mouth. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.”

    The important thing women need do is to bridle their tongues and men to walk out

    Beating an adult is just wrong, there are some men dt use mouth to finish their subordinate at work they will cuss shege out of that man called husband and he won’t do shit….. infact he will say sorry join just for peace to reign and to secure his job, ur job is not as important as ur marriage, if u can take ur marriage half as much as u take ur job u will not touch ur wife no matter what……. rem I did not say if u take her as ur better half, cos truth be told dt better half shit is most times impossible…… after honeymoon stage both of u become two different individuals……. man/woman pls don’t beat ur spouse it doesn’t mk u look strong but extremely weak!
