As part of measures to curb domestic violence which has become rampant lately evidenced in the death of gospel musician Osinachi Nwachukwu and other related stories that have sprouted on social media in the aftermath, ageless actress Kate Henshaw has shared her views about it.

In a recent interview with Vanguard Allure, Kate was asked if she has given remarriage a consideration after staying single for more than 11years while revealing what she thinks can be done to stem this menace.

She said:

I think more stringent consequences in terms of punishments should be meted out to perpetrators. No shaming of the victim.

No victimization of the person who has gone through domestic violence. Our culture of silence perpetuates this evil.

And so, a lot of voices need to be raised. Gender-based violence is something that has been with us for a while, but with the advent of social media, it is now coming to the fore in a huge wave. A lot more needs to be done especially by women to be able to stem this Menace.

And of course, we need the relevant authorities to be alive to their responsibilities; name and shame the perpetrators so that people know that these kinds of people are being punished. So, I’m an advocate for stringent strong punishment to deter others.

On the subject of remarrying after 11years of walking away from her marriage, Kate said;

Well, never say never at the right time, God will do what He has to do. And if He says ‘No’ fine and if He says, yes, that is also fine. I am not ruling it out, but I am not actively searching to remarry.
