Protect men from gender based violence, MP says

23 June 2015, 17:35 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has called for legislation protecting men from gender based violence.

Gethenji maintains that nobody is supposed to injure his or her love partner.

He termed the attacks on men by their lovers as inhuman and said it was unfortunate that women have turned to beastly acts instead of seeking alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

The MP, who spoke in the wake of increased domestic violence cases in Nyeri County, said women who battle or attack their husbands should realize that it is a forbidden according to culture.

“Recently cases of undressing women alleged to have dressed inappropriately were reported and everybody complained. Parliament went ahead and discussed the matter and recommended a 20-year-imprisonment term for anyone who commits the offence,” said Gethenji.

Speaking to his constituents, Gethenji expressed concerns that the public was making comics over men who have been attacked by their wives mostly those injured their private parts.

“If you are unhappy in your marriage or your partner you better quit and walk away peacefully without harming your spouse,” he advised.

He further decried that social media was spreading stereotype and stigma against Nyeri women saying the few cases reported recently should not be used to condemn the whole society.
