Barbarism: Man Beats Wife Almost to Death

The problem of domestic violence in certain African communities has been highlighted again by this story that went viral on social media today,where an east African man was captured on video brutally beating his wife while several onlookers watched on without making any attempt to rescue the woman.

The lady was reportedly caught in adultery with another man,but instead of dealing with the situation in a civilized manner,the aggrieved husband took matters in his own hands by first stripping his wife to her underwear before descending on her violently with a large piece of wood.He beat her till she lost consciousness and then dragged her away like a piece of garbage.

Until concerned African communities and local authorities begin to take serious actions aimed at tackling domestic abuse,this sort of barbarism that devalues us before the rest of the civilized world is never going to stop.
