Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used by one person in a relationship to gain power and control over another. It can take many forms, including physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual abuse. Domestic violence can have devastating impacts on victims, including physical and emotional harm, financial insecurity, and even death. The most effective way to prevent domestic violence is to create a culture of respect and equality in relationships. This means teaching people to recognize and challenge abusive behavior, and to support.
Breaking news from the North Region in Cameroon today is an example of the cruelty and harm of certain acts of domestic violence.
According to @Betatinz a man named Mokom Serge suspected his wife of cheating, beat his wife with a hot matchete to express his anger.
According to his sister-in-law, Serge returned home to find his wife resting on their matrimonial bed. everything was calm and there were no pre-arguments. He asked his wife if she was cheating on him with his male colleague. Before she could say a word, he started beating and attempted to strangle her. At some point he stopped, ran to the kitchen and heated the mathete to return and give her a whopping of her life.
The incident took place in Garoua. The victim is currently receiving treatment at the hospital while the (abuser) Serge is on the run.
