What do the elections, and porta parties have in common? They can make people question their sanity. Hence our discussion on mental health.
May is Mental Health Awareness month and our discussion was about the upcoming Kenyan elections and how some rules could easily lead to mistrust and unrest in an otherwise peaceful nation. We also talked about a disturbing trend called porta parties in Dubai where the bored ultra rich Sheiks humiliate African women, record these humiliating sessions and think it is ok because these women get paid for these sessions.
African women let’s not entertain foolishness in the name of money and material gifts we are better than that!
