Radio host and social activist Criselda Dudumashe revealed she has suffered physical abuse at the hands of her new husband, Prince Siyolo Dudumashe.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Dudumashe details events leading to her “prince charming” beating her up.
“I have been battered and beaten. I thought I have an understanding, a knowing of fearing the one you love. For a good 19 years, it seemed like I had overcome the abuse. I made my 3 beautiful daughters the centre of my world and promised them to NEVER again expose them to a violent and abusive home. When what appeared to be a soft-spoken and gentleman swept me off my feet in 2014, with a love language so different to my previous relationship, I was taken.
He was attentive, loving, available and so warm-hearted... someone who seemed not intimidated by my light, always allowing me to pursue my dreams. Signs were there but I chose to ignore them," she wrote.
She continued to describe how supportive her husband was when she was laid off work in 2017 and the red flags he started showing when she was reinstated a few months later.
