Ms. Miriam Pheona Otengo is a social scientist and Ugandan diplomat to the United Kingdom. She was thrust into the spot light in late 2017 when her husband a fellow diplomat battered her at their home in Maryland (USA). This incident led to their deportation from the USA. This caused her marriage to fail ending in a bitter divorce. This experience showed her that no one is immune from this evil and who so ever is going through it must speak up and victims should be given psych-social, financial and legal support. She was able to make it through the grueling two year period because of her family support. It is this kind of support that she wishes to extent to those going through the same.
