Chanika is not a Gender ACTIVIST. She has never been one before. She has always been a FEMINIST. You don’t have to go to school again to know the difference between these two words.

Its time you got married Wandika! with such big responsibility you need someone to support you on bedside, that is why many men are successful in their careers they are encouraged by their bed mates when things gets tough and soothed when things gets sour. All the same it has been a long waiting but at last you have made it, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
