Julie has been the talk in both online and offline forums being roasted for a remark she made linking Referendum to challenges facing women in Awasi, Nyanza. Julie has come out fighting by sticking to her view and ignoring the main cause of the hate.
Here is what Julie posted on her Facebook page.
Greetings good people
On #SundayLive we featured a story on women in Awasi facing very difficult circumstances, sent in by our correspondent in Kisumu. As a result of airing this shocking story of the struggle & abuse of women seeking water we have come under attack by deceitful political bullies.
When stories have impact & raise leadership questions they cause jitters… We must be less concerned with the jitters of the few & focus on solutions for the people. The focus now should be on urgent action from leadership and security agencies to address this issue, not tribal online bullying for no comprehensible reason. This tactless bullying campaign diverts attention from those who bear responsibility for solving this crisis, which must be addressed.
To those spewing vile, pls work towards using your influence with leaders to ensure sustainable change for the people of Awasi. Be a blessing. I will always have love/respect for all. I pray that those who deceive & destroy also find this same spirit. His Grace is sufficient
Most importantly good people, take a moment to say a prayer for the women facing this difficult situation. They have a right to safety & water.
Do good. Be a blessing
