It’s quite unfortunate to see man beating up his wife for some upset. The law is clear; violence is never the answer to solving family issues. It seems that no matter how hard we work to educate people about the dangers of abusing women and children, these kinds of crimes will never be stopped.
Most parts of Africa is the home to a disproportionately high number of women and children. Every morning when we wake up, we are met with news stories about women and children who have been murdered or abused. Every year, we make an effort to bring attention to the problem of men assaulting women, but the problem persists despite our efforts. A growing number of people have advocated for the government to bring on board a harsh punishment for those who commit acts of gender-based violence.
People who are killing and hurting our sisters are not strangers; rather, they are people who we live with on a daily basis, most of whom are the boyfriends of our sisters. This is what makes it so excruciatingly painful. These days, being in a relationship can be downright terrifying due to the fact that the majority of homicides committed against men and women have their origins in an abusive partnership. Men are the ones that abuse their wives and girlfriends rather than protecting them. Who do you turn to for help when the person who is supposed to protect you turns out to be an adversary from whom you require protection?
In a video which has started making waves on the internet, there has been another incident which showed how a man was caught abusing his girlfriend. According to the reports, this man was driving with two women in his car when they got into an altercation, at which point they pulled over and got out of their vehicles to continue the dispute. The other woman tried to separate them, but the man continued to beat up the lady even though she was no longer fighting. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, they were busy exchanging hoo slaps with one another. Someone wanted to bring to light the fact that this man had verbally harassed or physically assaulted the woman shown in this video, so they put it online.
People have noticed, after it was broadcast online, that the woman was the one who initially started flinging slaps at the male. A lot of people missed that, and now they’re busy condemning the man for assaulting the woman, but they had no idea that the woman was the one who initiated the fight in the first place. However, a gentleman never raises his hand to a woman, even if she hits him. This is part of his code of conduct. When a woman puts her hands on a gentleman, he should avoid the situation as much as possible and walk away. Violence is never acceptable.
Will GBV ever end in this country? This guy randomly pulled the car over ,dragged the girl out of the car and started hitting her!💔
Please help retweet for awareness. Just incase the video reaches her and she might need evidence for this event that happened. pic.twitter.com/1DBydeD8Ag
