Young widow shows the treatment she was subjected to after losing her husband at 23
A 23-year-old widow has shared the dehumanizing treatment she was subjected to by her husband’s kinsmen following his sudden passing.
Taking to TikTok, the young mother-of-two shared a video showing women in the community shaving her head with a blade after her husband’s death.
According to her, she got married at the age of 19, and barely four years after she got married to her husband, he died, leaving her with their two children, a boy and a girl.
She also recounted how her husband’s family forcefully took all of his properties from her, leaving her with nothing and having to care for the kids alone.
Narrating her experience, she wrote,
” I married at 19, had my first child at 20, second child at 21, became a widow at 23. They collected everything from me. The worst part is they don’t ask of the kids.”
