Women Abuse: A cancer killing our nation – Thabile Mange
Women abuse is a crime against humanity. However, those who commit this sin walk free – and without a care – on the streets of our country. On the other hand, the victims of this scourge live in fear, both in their homes and on the streets. Men are the main perpetrators of this scourge. They don’t just mistreat females, they kill them as well, brutally so. Unfortunately, the victims of this evil don’t enjoy much support, even though there are structures established to support them. As a result, they feel alone and isolated. This renders them vulnerable. Consequently, they surrender to their perpetrators. The law is on their side but only on paper. Few are convicted for committing this crime. What complicates the matter further is that women abuse often happens within the ambit of romantic relationships. And many people don’t like to interfere (even when there is a need to intervene) in the affairs of two people (male and female) engaged in an intimate relationship. In the final analysis, women abuse is a problem confronting the world but little is being done to curb it. This book relates the story of women abuse in South Africa.
