The Epistle of Defence by Imasuen’s Wife:
“Sylvia Oluchy I neither exalt nor bring low your allegations against my Husband with this letter but be rest assured that your desperate attempt to solicit other females to also allege same thing against my Husband, I have them. When the chips are down you will understand in full what I mean.”
“Sylvia stop losing sleep whether I was on that set or not. Remember the scene shot at Mrs Isangs house? We had a little prayer meeting and I specifically made a prayer request with one of the major cast in attendance and to the Glory of God it has long been answered.”
“If your issue is with how long I was there, were you filming in My Husband’s hotel room? or were you on set to monitor a newly wedded Woman’s movement?” “In all this, you and your cohorts can be rest assured that I stand firmly with my Husband.
“I am a Mother of Four Girls, A practising Accountant if any of my Bosses ever molested me I would never go back to them to ask for favours talkless of being cordial with them over a period of 13 Years….dear Sylvia please be guided.
“To everyone standing and running with Sylvia, well-done, you are all entitled to your opinions but remember just as much as a Girl Child needs a lot of protection so does the Boy Child. When all the concentration is on the Girl Child, is there a third gender for the Girl to associate with? No wonder there are so many broken homes, no wonder so many damaged Men roaming the World.”
“My Husband has built a brand for the past 25 Years through sweat and blood, if you and your gang think you will cast aspersions on him, you sure picked a wrong person.”
