It's been a rare case hearing or seeing a man publicly confessing that he has been beaten or assaulted by his wife. In some communities in Kenya, it is seen as being inferior before the people.
The 36-years-old father of four supprised many on Saturday Morning when he walked into Awasi police with bruises on his face claiming that he had been ruthlessly beaten by his wife.
Joash later narrated what he has been going through for years to his friends within the town claiming that he risked loosing his life if he would continue remaining silent on the matter.
"I am sick and tired of this woman" said Joash while shading tears profusely. He went on showing several marks which had earlier on been inflicted on his body by the said woman.
According to the neighbours, the family has been having wrangles for a long time with Joash's wife complaining that her husband has not been faithful to her.
"Anytime he comes back home late at night, he must be disciplined" said one neighbour whose identify is sealed. The neighbour added that Mr Joash has been going through alot.
The woman has so far been arrested and locked in police custody as the police is digging deep into the matter. "We shall follow up this case with utmost sincerity and justice" said the police boss.
The area human rights activist Madam Agnes Pendo urged men to come out and express such domestic issue with the relevant authorities citing that many men are living under alot of fear and are not willing to share such matters.
Cases of men being beaten in families have been on the rise in the recent past and if no immediate action is taken, many families may break up.
