What is really happening in our homes these days? When did it become okay to kill your spouse and kids ? When did love and family values left our homes?

It has become like a norm these days on our news. Domestic violence has gone to another level. Both men and women are suffering wrath from their spouses. And now children too are being targeted. Disagreements will always be there. We disagree to agree. And if it fails to work, we have friends and relatives to help out.

Marriages have become like graveyards. It’s hard to believe that two people who loved each other enough to marry would one day take each other’s life away. Is it frustrations, ego,mental health, lack of communication, etc? What is happening in homes nowadays.

Burning your spouse and beautiful kids before taking away your own life. Strangling them then doing the same to yourself. Make arrangements for your family to be killed. When did we get there?

I remember when the men from Nyeri would be brutally cut by their wives. The wives were angry because the men were busy drinking and not feeding the family. Several men even risked losing their private parts. They were being chopped off since they were no longer in service.

After a while, the incidences reduced. Several organizations came to the rescue of these men. They were introduced to several programs like rehab . This helped them turn away from their lost way. Unfortunately, illicit brew still remains a problem in our country.

Did we concentrate too much on the girl child and women empowerment? And forgot about the male counter parts. As the evaluation and research are being down, women have been reported to be progressing. Which is a good news to the community and a step forward to gender equality.

My heart breaks each time I watch news and witness another death of a whole family. Reason being a quarrel. neighbours narrating how the deceased family would argue time to time. Very little babies dying painful deaths for no good reasons. Relatives being left behind with untold pain and questions they will never get answers for.

Lives are precious. Problems are inevitable. Love conquers everything. Communication is the key to a health relationship. Nothing is impossible. Always look for a better solution and not death.

  1. There’s so much that can be said about this issue, it creates the worst of tragedies within families. I try to cover it all in my upcoming book..The Third Return, of my and my mother’s true accounts. You might be interested given your passion in this issue.

  2. Aesthetically presented! Loved the lines:
    “Lives are precious. Problems are inevitable. Love conquers everything. Communication is the key to a healthy relationship.” Very true! Domestic Violence breaks hearts, pains emotions and destroys families. It is very important to report it and fight, rather than succumbing to it. Once, you give up, the world becomes a hell. So it’s better to fight for yourself than be a victim forever.

    Entering a new college is a path towards a glorious future. But this ‘future’ may turn out to be a nightmare for some!
    To know more how “ragging” or “hazing” is illegal and dispiriting to innocent hearts, read my short story at

    Hope it takes an initiative forward to ‘stop ragging’– a lethal tradition…

  3. This is a lovely post – sometimes it’s not as simple as society thinks and often the law fails us as parents and fails to protect our children from domestic violence. But we need to keep talking about it and being open.

      1. That is my ultimate goal, prior to her death I was studying criminology so I am hoping to speak out against this and make a change. Starting small with a blog that will detail my findings and the court and criminal process and hopefully on a bigger platform later on.
