In the past one week Kenyan men have known nothing but fear. It has been like a well set sequence of women seeking dominion over men. This has been a long running a battle that men might be finally loosing. From men being battered in the comfort of their own homes, to some having to live with snakes in the name of who speaks in the house. More recent we have seen men being maimed and washed down with hot water in their own houses by their very own wives.
We all can’t sympathize nor empathize with the men or women from these marriages. And many more are turning so horribly wrong. Divorce cases are sky rocketing in equal measure with cases of gay unions and single parenthood. The broadcast ones are the few we know of. The silent ones are cases of people having to live with the shame of their marriages. Either it’s a drunk or a sickening adulterer. Some people live with the fear that the next phone call is that of their spouse caught in another drama. Some spend millions of shillings to either cover up such cases or unearth them to get leverage for divorce.
