English translation by PulseWire member AnnieTheriault

A man physically abused his wife because of a bag of milk. He told her to buy the milk for his tea. It took her a little while, because she couldn’t find any milk in her neighbourhood. When she got back, her husband threw the tea into her face and punched her repeatedly. Her face was severely burned and when the man heard their children crying out for help and for the police, he ran away. The mother is currently hospitalized. Congolese women are victims of such domestic violence.
