Come on people! Is it beat on Shebesh month?

5f71c8e8a3Barely a month has gone by since the video of Governor Evans Kidero slapping Nairobi women’s representative went viral on Youtube. Now, reports are saying that the formidable woman was assaulted by Senator Mike Mbuvi, famously known as Sonko. According to the Star newspaper, Shebesh has already reported the incident to Kilimani police station. Witnesses say that Shebesh had been arguing before the incident ensued on Thursday night and that Sonko has confirmed the incident but advised people to stay out of his private life.

The first incidence was said to be tit for tat. The second incident is said to be as a result of an argument. This begs the question, since when has violence against women needed a justification? Rachel Shebesh is the representative of all women in Nairobi and Kenya as a whole. When the person who is supposed to be the voice of the woman is blatantly disrespected and assaulted, then other women have a cause to worry.

Violence against women is a real phenomenon. It affects women of all walks of life and of different ages. Judging by the reactions, justifications and outright laughter of many individuals about the Shebesh assault, it is clear that Kenya has a long way to go to curb this very serious violation. A country that cannot protect those it terms weak is a country that fails its people in many aspects. The mind set that some women deserve a beating sets a dangerous precedence and tells our young men, yes, this practice is acceptable and yes, you can get away with it.

Kenya is undergoing tumultuous times and according to reports, the times are set to become worse. It is one thing to fight against enemies from without but when we start fighting enemies from within, we might as well consider the battle lost. Rampant corruption, hooliganism and ethnicity are already wrecking havoc on the development of Kenya. When we factor in daylight assault on the leaders of our country, then one can only wonder where this country is headed to.
