Julie Gichuru is one of the most popular and successful media personalities we have in Kenya. Being a public figure has its ups and downs. One of the downs that Julie experienced was that a nasty rumor was flowing all over the internet that she was being beaten by her husband Tony Gichuru.
During an interview with Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central, Julie was asked about the rumor and she gave this response:
“Are we still in that one? (Rumor) for real? Let me let down those who wanted me to be battered, not a day in his life. That is number one. Number two, you hit me one time, you will never see the front of my face again, you will see the back of me for a few seconds, and that’s it! I don’t believe that any woman should accept any kind of violence; let alone physical violence, talk to me wrong! Talk to me wrong. No No No!”
“Let me say something else. I love and respect my husband. In my home, my husband is the king. He will come home and feel happy and feel comfortable and he will make me feel like a queen. If you are in a family where two people are not getting along, sometimes the difficult decision, especially for children is to say maybe we don’t jump maybe we need to step back”
