The actress expressed her concerns over the “excoriating hardship and lack of good governance on every level.” On her X handle, she sarcastically remarked, “In the midst of excoriating hardship & lack of good governance on every level but not to worry, going back to a colonial anthem will be a soothing balm and inject patriotism back into our veins, a much needed drug.”

In another post, Henshaw wrote, “The labour of our heroes past… o ti lo [is gone].”
