David Nzomo, the man who was captured on video brutally beating up his wife, will now spend the next twelve years behind bars for his heartless act.

Charged with causing grievous bodily harm to his wife, the court also found that Nzomo’s criminal record shows that he has a history of violence.

Nzomo’s is not the first case of domestic violence to hit our newswave. A few years ago, it was reported that the wife of a senior western Kenya politician beats the hell out of him.

According to statistics, over 40% of women in Kenya have been the victims of either domestic violence or sexual abuse from their partners.

  1. 1 Sexual Coercion

    Sexual coercion is defined as any situation in which a person is compelled to engage in sexual relations against their will. Research in Kenya carried out in 2014 discovered that 11% of men and 21% of women aged between 10-24 years have had to deal with sexual coercion in their lifetime.

    Of the reported number, only 23% of women and 22% had the courage to report the violence to either a relative or close friend.

  2. 2 Childhood Experiences

    Children who grow up witnessing or experiencing violence may become adults who believe that domestic violence is the standard way to deal with differences between them and their spouse.

    For example, boys who go around the toxic belief that women are beneath them and not worthy of value and respect, and who are used to seeing women receive abuse, are likely to use violence on their wife when they grow up.

  3. 3 Drugs and alcohol

    A Person who is drunk or high on drugs is less likely to be in control of his or her violent impulses when resolving issues with their partner. 

    If a person is self-aware of having a history of violence, it is recommended they avoid alcohol and drugs when dealing with domestic issues.
