“I just had baby. It was a Caeserian section just about 4 weeks ago. Just because I told him to spend wisely and not on women so recklessly considering we have four children, that is why I got this beating.
He tried to strangle me and all that, sat on my incision, the children were crying.
“When I was pregnant with this child, when the pregnancy was three months, it was the same thing. He would sit on my stomach, hit me, try to strangle me and all that.”
