Beating by husband ok, Kenyan women say

15 January 2016, 10:23

Nairobi - A new survey shows that majority of Kenyan women are ok with beating by husband.

The Kenya Demographic and Health Survey conducted between May and October in 2014 found that 42 per cent of Kenyan women aged between 15 and 42 supported beating by husband.

Some of the justifications for beating were denying husband sex, burning food, neglecting children and arguing with husband, The Star reports.

However, the survey established that most victims of violence are men, with 44 per cent of those interviewed having been abused physically, sexually or emotionally by their wives.

According to Standard, 60 per cent of men from Western and Nairobi have been beaten by their wives, followed by Nyanza at 56 per cent, Eastern at 48 per cent then Central Kenya at 43 per cent.
