Why are GA women so violent? Upon all her job at human rights and gender protection, Naa Oye who was the engineer of woyome's payment was beating her husband "Tony Lithur" in the house?
We really have to change the "Gender protection" to "Female victim-signaling" #Citcbs #Joysms

People are making fun of Tony Lithur because of allegations of domestic violence from his wife. Ladies and gentlemen, this is why male victims of abuse don't speak up. They can't. Because their fellow males will mock them more than anyone else
