PHYSICAL VIOLENCE IN A BUKAVU HOUSEHOLD

On the night of the 12-13 of May, 2014, a woman was raped by her husband in Karale Quarter, Kadutu Commune, in the city of Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The event unfolded this way: the husband had married the first woman, Two years later, the husband left the house without even saying goodbye to his wife and he thought it was fine to stay at the home of another woman who had three children. When the woman became pregnant the husband brought a third woman into the home of the second woman. When the woman wanted to speak up for her rights, the husband leapt on her although she was 8 months pregnant. She had a miscarriage. She brought justice against the man and a few years later he was freed.

Five years later the man married another girl but while at her home, the family refused the marriage because they had information on the past of this man. After 2 births, the husband decided to borrow money from a store in order to smooth out the situation in the home. That was a sum of $500. The woman began to engage in a small business for the survival of her family. Several months later, someone stole the money with a corn sack. When the women told her husband, he closed the door and began to beat her, even though the woman was two months pregnant. Three hours later the woman was dead from these blows and her husband took flight, even until now according to our sources.

We raise our voices once more to say NO,NO,NO to violence against women; we continue to publicize Resolution 1325 of the United Nations everywhere where communities are torn apart by conflict. Oh, let us unite to bring an end to this kind of violence.

Thank you. I will see you soon online.

T.T.

T.T. is a name my adopted daughters, who are now 8 years and nine years old, called me instead of mommy when they first came to my house as foster children. They were sisters age 5 weeks and 14 months old. They have been with us for over 8 years now! Talk soon, warm regards, T.T. or Terri if you prefer!

J'ai traduit votre journal

Bonjour Ariane,

J'ai traduit votre journal en anglais. Vous avez raconté une histoire affreuse. Cet homme n'a aucun respect pour les femmes. Il a battu deux femmes enceintes! Oui, unissons toutes les femmes du monde comme soeurs pour mettre fin à ces histoires!

Bien à vous,

Nancy
