Something new (or not so much) from Africa

I've posted before on the topic of Abused Men In Scotland, and how difficult they find it to get anyone to take them seriously (because, you know, domestic abuse is always and everywhere about men beating up women).

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the problems (both the abuse and the credibility issue) are not confined to Scotland, or even the UK. But it's interesting to see how men in other cultures deal with it. Here is a report from Kenya, via the BBC website. In such a patriarchal society it must be even harder to admit to being a battered husband.
