In the African traditional ways of living, life was considered sacred. Lately, the life of a person is not only not sacred but people have lost the meaning of life preservation
Many people in this era have died in the hands of thier loved ones. Parents, siblings and lovers have taken a part in terminating a life that they should protect.
It has become a norm, and now everyone is threatening to kill everyone.
The funny thing is that the justice doesn’t take much consideration to the victims and the offenders always end up walking free, putting more civilians at risk.
Jane Bahati is a resident of kitui county. Her story is similar to many others that we have recently witnessed where her husband decided that she didnt deserve to live anymore.
Her love story began in 2015 when she met this wonderful man who promised to marry her and take her to school. It was Jane’s dream to one day become a teacher.
Full of promises, her husband married her, promising a good life. Life was all good at the begining but life changed when the husband’s parents decided to be part of their lives. They gassed up their son, warning him not to educate Jane planting a seed of doubt abd mistrust in their son.
Life for Jane changed, the husband stopped providing for her and her two kids and made it worse by always beating her up. Despite the beating, Jane stuck around for the kids, took the initiative to always take care and provide for her whole family, an act that the husband didn’t take too well. Every job Jane got, the husband made sure to destroy her credibility. Always accusing her of infidelity.
Jane woke up in a hospital bed i Kenyatta Hospital not knowing the Horrific Incident that had transpired. Her misfortunes continued after she got a bit better, and she got the news that the man who put through that pain had been released on bail of 20,000.
Jane is in a loss of words, and she doesn’t know who to talk to. She is not sure if the justice system that set her attacker free will protect her and her kids now that they are still living in the same village
