Controversial poet Ntsiki Mazwai has come out to say that one of her family members has emotionally abused her.
My uncle does this to me daily.and nobody is hearing my cry. Everybody keeps quiet. ....as he hurls abuse......patriarchy is a deep and difficult problem we face as a society.....in our families. It is a vile disease that make the men in out homes a DANGER to us. It is when men can abuse women and nobody says anything. It is now. It is everyday. He does it everyday. Swears at me everyday. Accuses me of things i havent done just so he can express his rage on me. Uis rage from all the unhappiness in his life. He uses me as his scapegoat for everything he has not achieved.i have a problem with patriarchy....malume veli is making my life a living nightmare and nobody hears me.....nobody is intervening. They just look away as he tries to break my spirit EVERYDAY😣
