Nairobi – At least 460,000 men are battered in Central
Kenya and Nairobi every year, according to statistics by the Maendeleo
ya Wanaume Organisation.
The organisation’s founder Nderitu Njoka said on Tuesday that this
was an increase of 160,000 from previous figures recorded in 2009.
“The Issue of men being battered started long ago… only that they
have been silent when facing abuse because of fear of ridicule,” Njoka
said in an interview with Capital News.
