For her, 'the pen is always mightier and with it, she speaks volumes.' BE THE LIGHT, BE THE CHANGE…A BETTER YOU, A BETTER WORLD.

  1. It’s sad the society was interrupted and displaced by the period of Colonialism. It would be wonderful to see the culture if only it had been left untouched.

    I do think polygamy is considered as subjugation by so many of the worlds cultures of today. From your writing, I do not get the sense that women minded “sharing their man” and not receiving what for many desire as loyalty. Very interesting. I would love to hear you share more of those thoughts.

    Great article, Tobi!
