Tanzanian sweetheart, Wema Sepetu likes it when the man she loves beats her up, from time to time.

Speaking to Ijumaa Wikienda while attending her manager, Neema Ndepanya’s birthday, the former beauty queen revealed that she does not mind being disciplined by her man when on the wrong.

“Napenda mwanaume anipe kipigo kidogo siyo mwanaume mnaishi miaka yote, halafu hata kukupiga kofi kidogo hakupigi,” (I like a man who beats me up occasionally, not one I’d to spend several years with without hitting me, even just a slap) Wema said.

While domestic violence is condemned in most parts of the world, among the Soninke’s it is an act of love on the man’s part.

For instance, a 19 year old woman from the aforementioned ethnic group told the Independent that she felt like “an animal that had to be disciplined.”

“As time passed, I came to believe that my husband beats me only when he is at the peak of his love for me.”
