    The First Lady of Namibia, Monica Geingos, has clapped back at trolls who she says have been “slut-shamming” her on the internet.

    Madam Geingos sent a powerful message to the trolls on the occasion of the International Women’s Day 2021, sternly cautioning them to desist from hurling insults at her online.

    “I’ve decided that enough is enough… I will not be silenced anymore,” she warned in a video posted on Twitter handle on Monday, March 8, 2021.

    In the video that has since gone viral, she revealed that “I recently instituted defamation lawsuit against this type of behavior..”

    She complained that on a regular basis, she has been subjected to “slut-shaming.”

    On some occasions, according to her, she had been labeled as “fat, ugly, stupid and too ambitious” by cyber bullies.

    Madam Geingos, aged 44, is the third wife of Namibian President Hage Geingob, 79. She and the President got married in 2015.

    “When they are not asking when or if my husband will impregnate me…. When I’m not ‘busy being a manipulative, deceitful gold-digger,’ I am ‘busy running the country’ as I have ‘bewitched my old Sugar Daddy husband’ who is ‘too blind to see through my feminine charms,’” she said as she urged women to speak up against online bullies.

    “When you stand up for yourself… You will be called a troublemaker, too aggressive, too unladylike. That is why many of us prefer not to challenge gender bias. That’s why we endure being called gold-diggers, sluts… Too fat or too thin,” according to her.
