A VERY SENSITIVE topic. Our fight against wife battery is rather quite on-point, as many men in this part of the world take to bullying their spouses at the slightest provocation. This can be attributed to various factors like PARENTAL UPBRINGING, BRIDE PRICE SYSTEM, FRUSTRATION, POOR COMMUNICATION SKILLS and PEER PRESSURE.
INNADEQUATE ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS is the major reason this problem still festers…as well as the unwillingness to report such cases. Women in such a melee will have to be encouraged to speak out or risk being maimed by their spouses. A massive sensitization drive on the ills of wife battery as well as the need to live in peace and harmony in every marriage will be undertaken.
