    This trend has increasd especialy in shanty compounds ware there is less knowlegde of GBV. The same women for change other women organisation the couse of this becouse you find that most of these leaders for women organisation are not married,they wont be able to teach woment to respect their husbands but teach them only on equality, shame on thses women who even come on TV and radios teaching women to direspect their husbands in the name of gender equality,

    Almost all women killed by their husbands are either acussed of having some spare man or for going home late,my question is why are our women cheapening themselves by addresing in front of other men.Women organisations should work hard on this issure other wise aids wil be difficult to control,usualy men who go out with married women are sick and do not use condom instead they lure these poor women with money.

    In zimbabwe there is a law,if your wife reports u of wifebeating ,its jail time,bigtime.no one has the right to beat someone.noone owns a person if it was the case of the husband coming home late ,who was going to beat him “he who finds a wife has found a good thing”

    I am happy that I have never laid my hands on my woman for almost 24 years I have been married to her. Only weak men beat their wives, strong men talk sense and love their wives. Abuse and battery should be avoided at all times. Life is short. Enjoy life.

    Women are not tools to be used by men. They are meant to be part of the man’s boby as the Bible says. Dialogue is the key to a stable and successful marriage.This man has now created problems for the children who will now miss both parents. Dad in jail while mum is dead. shame to this Bemba savage.

    Too much promiscuity among women leading to Gender based violence because women take it for granted that they will be supported by these same so called NGOs,

    Lets kill the problem at its source by sentisingwomen and teahn them better in how to run the affairs of their matrimonial homes and by being faithful,

    There no way a married woman would be out for almost two hours in search of Relish at the expense of her husband starvn after givn her a ten grand to buy relish ,

    Around twenty hours for that mad,

    That man should not be charged for murder because we all know that No one thinks straight when they are hungry after a long hard day , especially considering the fact that he was worried sick about the where abouts of his wife at late hours.

    to all those saying it was cheating,woman empowerment and whatever shit you are lying to yourselves about….. have you ever had chance or taken time to see how people live in compounds???? they are not civilized in their thinking,they is no gender empowerment whatsoever,these women live in fear,all the woman has to do is think and provide for the family and be available to do anything for the idiot husband whose job is only to drink tujilijili and kachasu and on top of that shes battered evrytime he thinks of doing it…. and there you are saying she should be an example, YOU ARE A FUCKING DISGRACE TO MANHOOD. you are supposed to be protecting your wife with everything you have and yet you are the one doing that…… wait until it happens to your SISTER and i pray that the news should be published will see if you will feel the same or you will be happy about the SHIT ASS NEGATIVE COMMENTS.

  17. Ice   April 3, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    I noticed comments blamin the killin on women bein promiscous.. a huge percentage of men cheat on their wives on a daily basis..does this mean women should solve it by killin their husbands? this should be tackled wit prayer n guidance from Jesus on how every person sholud live. Woman or Man, a muderer sholud be jailed because this is erong..children remain opharned becyase of seflfish killins. God help us!

    Manzi akataika sayoleka. This makes very sad reading and I reaaly feel sorry and pity the boy in tears. For this particular case only, can someone out there whether politician or business man or even govt, please can someone adopt this child and the siblings and make sure that he (they) get the needed education.

    it depends on what u have for a wife ,while beating is bad/satanic but beleive you me some women can push you kuma peto, ask some of us who leave every day warning our wives that one day i will panish you and and her reply is that its u who’s going to receive that punishment ,am telling u people i agree with those those who say lets look at both sides of the coin ,women too have gone crazy.just thank the lord if u have a cultured wife than insult us who are enduring in our marriage

    If your wife is a problem divorce her not ifyo fya kumuma. You have no right to take anothers life because you did not create it. Bututu nobu savage, men who behave like that are still monkeys, brain hasnt evolved. Let him go to prison and get bum raped by a gang because thats his level – savagery.

    You cannot discipline your fellow adult by beating like a child, you just reason with her. mentality os certain men who think they own their wives, shame. Men who beat their wives are cowards, that strength is to protect your family and not abusing theme physically. A wife is your fellow adult and you have to treat her with respect the way she respects you. Just because she respects you, do not take it forgranted that she has no rights are she is your fool to abuse anyhow.

  23. Tribalist   August 29, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    How, for God’s sake, can a person one loves be beaten surely. Me I love my wife and if you want to beleave this come and touch her you will have yourself to blame.
