Kenya: Domestic violence

Gukira and MentalAcrobatics both write eloquently on the subject of domestic violence… MA writes “As a man I feel disgrace that on what is essentially my watch, i.e. in my years of manhood, it has become more dangerous for women to be women in our cities, in our towns, in our villages, in our homes. Rape, beatings, domestic violence on the increase.” and Gukira “I am haunted by the cries of a high school teacher’s wife. Her voice punctuated my evening prep, as her husband, a history instructor, struck her again and again. No one intervened. Not his fellow teachers and certainly not students. “
