....."thanks for sharing your blogs which I have been quietly enjoying. Margaret, I must say I am now fully appreciating what Eme always said about you, that you
are a strong and virtuous woman. l now fully agree with your stance against some aspects of African culture and the despicable treatment of widows.
Some of our people, particularly those who claim to be family and close friends of the departed tend to forget that the widow needs support, understanding and space to grieve her loss; not overbearing interference.
I sincerely hope that your blogs on this issue with turn into a book one day.
it up and may God continue to comfort you, the children and grand children.... "

"let the truth be said. I hope our cultural ideas change towardsWidows. Some brothers/sisters in-law and other husband's relative are
always fond of introducing certain things when their broda dies, not considering that the his widow has much of the say in the matter. All I feel is pity for them. They can do that in the village but not all widows will tolerate even so in the village.
Tnx for sharing thoughts which might tally with other widows if not all.
