Domestic violence in Nigeria: "I’m only with him because of our children, I don't feel anything for him."

More about:

Domestic violence is something that happens all over the world, but in many societies in Africa it’s just swept under the carpet. Should police or neighbors intervene? Or is it a private matter between two individuals? And what role does culture play?

In this week’s edition of Speak Up, young people discuss the different ways of dealing with domestic violence, and Eveline (not her real name) tells the story of her Prince Charming who turned into a monster-in-waiting.


Host/producer: Joke Fayemi

Speak UP! is an audio show in which young Africans discuss thorny social issues without pulling any punches. It is created by a selection of young hosts and producers in Zimbabwe, South Sudan, Rwanda, Nigeria and Kenya, working in partnership with local media organizations and RNW. Each edition of Speak UP! provides YOU with a chance to express yourself – because everybody wants to be heard.

For more on domestic violence and other relationship matters, please visit our Love Matters Kenya site. And if there’s a topic you’d like to speak up about, get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter!

Sugar Glider’s are extremely social and bond naturally with their human owners.
Ferrets are also prone to certain illnesses - and injuries - and
may also require emergency services. Another thing that can be considered as a pro in raising a rabbit is
the fact that it can take away your depression and somehow control your blood pressure.
