Sometimes women aggravate it, says Dr Jiko Luveni
‘We know exactly what our husbands don’t like, yet we do it’
Sometimes women aggravate a situation of domestic violence. it was said yesterday. Speaker to Parliament Dr Jiko Luveni made these comments while speaking on the issue of violence against women and children during the Rishkul Sanatan College Professional Development Programme in Nasinu. However, she said a husband and wife should learn to work together in order to build a loving and enjoyable relationship. “If they can enjoy and make life work between themselves then there will be no violence,” she said. She said a woman must know the personality of her husband. “Sometimes we women aggravate the situation; sometimes we know exactly what our husbands don’t like and then we do it; what do you expect?” Dr Luveni said. She said women and men were saviours for each other. “So we women we really need to also be aware that our husbands also have a temper,” Dr Luveni said. She said anger was a behavioural problem. “You can’t attend a workshop or training for one week and when the trainer leaves; you are expected to change; it takes time to change, go through the process to change your violent ways but only divine intervention can change you overnight,” she said.
So we women we really need to also be aware that our husbands also have a temper.
