In another episode of domestic violence, a Congolese reportedly ripped off his wife Linda after beating her violently. The couple had 2 years of marriage
His wife, only 31 years old, died a few days after suffering violence from her husband in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, for a reason that has not yet been disclosed.
Linda died last week at Kimbondo Hospital in Monkole following internal bleeding after her husband, lawyer Francis Mbuyi, beat her.
According to reports, about 51% of African women say that being beaten by their husbands is justified if they leave without permission, neglect children, argue, refuse to have sex or burn food. It’s frightening!
About one-third of African women report experiencing domestic violence (physical or sexual). But attitudes are probably even more pernicious.
