VIDEO: How threats to dial 911 have tamed the Kenyan man in the US

Published

on

Many Kenyan men living with their wives or girlfriends in the US have had to adjust their temperaments mainly because, unlike back in Kenya where domestic violence is hardly taken seriously, in the “land of the free,” it can easily land one’s as* in jail – and, in most cases, for a long period of time.

When the police come to your house on a domestic violence call, it is typical that someone involved in the situation will be taken out of the house.

If the police are called for a domestic violence situation, they will have an obligation to investigate the situation.

If an adult is arrested and charged with domestic violence, they may also be prohibited from returning to the scene of the arrest.

Besides domestic violence charges, one may also be charged with disorderly conduct, which is basically disturbing the peace in your own house.

From the minute the police become involved in a domestic violence situation, that case is put in the legal system and it becomes a case of the State vs. the charged. The State has the right to continue to move forward with a case, even against the wishes of the victim.

With this in mind, some men who used to frequently start physical altercations at the slightest provocation back in Kenya now find themselves behaving like simba aliyenyeshewa. On the other hand, this has emboldened the Kenyan women to a point that many of them taunt and openly disrespect their husbands without any fear of the repercussions.

BREAKING: Trump announces postponement of ICE raids for two weeks

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

US President Donald Trump has announced a two week delay of the planned weekend federal immigration raids.

Trump said Saturday that he was delaying the raids – which were meant to target several US cities – to see if Congress can “work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border.”

Through a tweet, the President said he was taking the action at the request of Democrats.

“If no compromise with Republicans is reached within two weeks then Deportations start!” he tweeted.

Several U.S. cities, including Atlanta and Miami were preparing for raids beginning Sunday morning following Mr. Trump’s  surprise announcement on the eve of his 2020 re-election campaign kick-off in Orlando Florida.

CNN quoted analysts as saying that the announcement about the impending raids had shaken many immigrant families.

On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) applauded the delay via Twitter but noted that she didn’t feel bound by his timetable.

Earlier Saturday, Trump had defended the raids, tweeting: “The people that Ice (sic) will apprehend have already been ordered to be deported.”
