Ask Sis Dolly: He hits me

Two years ago, he started to hit me whenever we had a misunderstanding, he last hit me two weeks ago

I’ve been in a relationship with a guy since 2013. Two years ago, he started to hit me whenever we had a misunderstanding.

He last hit me two weeks ago. In December, he went to pay lobolo for me but I decided to let him go because he keeps promising he’ll never hit me again.

He’s still beating me. I reported this to his family but nothing has changed and I went to open a case against him. I’m six months pregnant so I need your advice.

Do you think I made the right decision?

Sis Dolly answers

No woman should have to tolerate an abusive relationship. That’s why there are measures put in place by the legal system.

The Domestic Violence Act is there to safeguard people like you. Don’t ever doubt whether you’ve made the right decision by laying a charge against him.

You’ve made the right choice to ensure you and your unborn baby are safe.
