Ghanaian TV Host In Acid Attack, Afia Schwarzenegger, Advices Women On Domestic Violence

Ghanaian comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger advocates that marriage is not a yardstick for success but is a union of two people in love and understanding. She went further to talk on domestic violence in marriages and why most women decide to stay with their abuser while citing her own personal experience.

In her words, women shouldn’t stay in an abusive marriage because of what people will think or say, adding that ”if a man do unto you what he cannot do unto himself, it is not love but obsession”. The popular media personality made this known on social media detailing how her ‘Leave to Live’ Foundation was formed out of her personal experience.

According to Afia, her foundation started after a video showed her stark naked and being harassed with acid by her estranged husband who found her in bed with another man.

She further revealed how her life turned around for good after getting support from an agency in the US following the whole scandal. Afia stated that the foundation is geared towards empowering women who are victims of domestic violence.

She disclosed;

“During all the hullabaloo about my nudity on social media, God used that to bless me. A week after the video went viral, I was contacted by some Domestic Violence Association from America.

They were a group of medical doctors who came together to form an organisation that supports domestic violence victims and also to empower women.

Initially, they thought I had been affected by the acid attack but thanks to God nothing happened to him.

They later encouraged me to put up a domestic violence foundation to empower women through my lifestyle and make women understand that marriage is not a yardstick of success.

Through the support from my foreign partners, Leave to Live Foundation was built and we have been able to impact a lot of women”.
