#ArrestNzomo Arrest the animal now! Who's the chief of that area and how come he has not delivered him to the authorities? Men in that area should not go to bed this night until the guy is captured!

#ArrestNzomo Nzomo is the true manifestation of a beast. This kind of barbarism is unequalled and negates humanity. It is time we have a man talk with such villains and we teach them how to treat women with love and dignity.

It's really heartbreaking to see people stand and watch someone mercilessly hitting a lady, begging him to stop like they can't force him to. God have mercy on us. #arrestnzomo
