The Maendeleo ya Wanaume lobby group have threatened to mobilize men countrywide to boycott food in their houses starting Monday to protest the recent increase of man battering.

The group leader Nderitu Njoka says the six-day strike is meant to compel women engaged in domestic violence against their spouses to stop the vice.

Speaking at the Nakuru provincial general hospital where he had visited a man assaulted by a woman, Njoka blamed empowerment funds given to women by the government for the increase in the trend adding that men should also be financially empowered.

At least 460,000 cases of men battering were reported last year in Central Kenya and 300,000 in Nairobi, according to Maendeleo ya Wanaume.

Meanwhile, the Africa Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa women council has vowed to work with families to restore harmony between spouses in Nyeri County that has recently witnessed an upsurge in husband battering.

    i think kenya is ready for a female president then, if men just go around drinking and wasting their money all over instead of caring for their children ( not all men )
    They should try boycotting alcohol,and changaa instead.
    Men accept your roles and know that the world has changed.

    That means no cooking for 60 days yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yihaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. On the other side if they strike against domestic violence so that they can be heard what if women were to do the same coz who is more abused. Is it MEN or the women?

    “MAENDELEO YA WANAUME” really tickles me and wonder if they would come up with a better name that is not sounding more feminine

    • maLAIka said

      It tickles me tooooo…not in a good way tho’….( that’s trouble on top of another ) and it will keep piling….what’s in a name??? but also, what’s the solution??????

    I can assure women and a few men wonna be women that we are not going to starve ourselves. It will be a week of Nyama Choma and bia no bola. Plus it will a week to spend quality time with the significant other who usually gives us comfort after battering.

    Najivunia kuwa Marekani wakati huu ambapo wanaume wananuia kususia vitoweo kutoka kwa wake zao. Nikitupwa nje, napigapiga madabo huku nikijihami kwenye Motel zilizokuwa karibu na kazini. Nikinyimwa chakula, napata manono kutoka Burger King, McDonald, na Wendy’s. Asipo nioshea nguo, nazipachika zote kwenye mashini inayozizungusha mara moja, kwa mara ya pili….hadi zikawa tayari. Asipo-nitosheleza ukware, mmmmmm……! Akiichukua gari, mabasi ya MVA, taksi……ziko tele.

    Eeeh….. eti hao washenzi wananuia kutokula…kutotia chochote mdomoni, kwa vyovyote vile, huku wakiapa kwa Miungu ya Kirinyaga na Nairobi, kuwa hawatatafuna chochote kilichopikwa na wakeo kwa siku sitini. Wanandanganya nani? Mwanaume Mkenya halisi kweli aweza kujisitiri bila kitu tumboni hata kwa siku moja?

    Wanambia mwenzangu Arap Kiptoo, kwa mfano, aweza kuvumilia mgurumo wa tumbo lisilokuwa na chochote kwa hata siku moja? Wanashindwa kuchukuwa majukumu yao ya kuwalea na kuwatunza wake na watoto wao kisha wanakimbilia Nderito Njoka. Yeye akiwa mwanyekiti wa chama hicho, atawakomboa kutokana na wanawake wanaowashurutisha wayachukuwe majukumu walioapa kuyatekeleza?

    Diposa nasema majivuno yangu ya kuwa Marekani wakati huu na hatua kubwa kwani matumbo yangu hayawezi kuvumilia mgomo kama huo ambao ni upuuzi mtupu. Pengine mahoteli yapikao mandazi na vyakula vya bei nafuu yatavuma kibiashara kweli kweli. Marekani huhitaji huyu mme au mke nyumbani. Diposa mambo yakapangwa iwe vile: kukurahihishia wewe wakati ndoa inagonga mwamba.

    since the men will not be eating, the women on the other hand will have more strength to hit them harder. men wake up and take up your responsibilities and the women will have no problem but to love you instead.

  9. Joyce said

    dont you think this will encourage more of their irresponsibility and “mipango ya kando”?

    • kamaa said

      i don think c u solved ur issue of our over drankardness by boycotting sex now even us we have a solution to our problem allow us to try then u shall talk later

  10. may said

    you should be telling the men be more responsible stop drinking.refusing food is good for the women because men do not buy food for cooking.

  11. Kate.w said

    AHAHAHAHAH; I LOVE THAT, all those men who are beaten by their wives, they have shuned thir responcibilities, they dont buy food,they dont pay rent, they dont pay school fees, then tell me the truth, what is this man for, bed alone????? The better, if they dont eat for 60 days, the wife will save.

  12. Mama Watoto said

    Please, can that boycott extend to the states too? I am tired of cooking every day….

    This generation of men is unheard of. We are talking of ages from 25-35 I think coz the men like the one who has married me and his agemates do not have this problem. The ones going through this beating and chomaring is the 8-4-4 age or something like that. The men like akina my dad spoke and the cows and dogs and kids and wives listened. This kupigapigwa is for the useless men. I saw in that video that even the men “hata ukimshikashika” hata hashikiki because the kumi kumi and Yokozuna has made him impotent. Hata hakuna haja ya kunshika. He is a ‘dead’ man walking, if you know what I mean!

    C’mon guys..yes I’m a woman and it’s a gruesome pic to watch…can we forget who is the winner here for a minute….what’s the solution???? Let’s forget the money saved on food, the ‘ benefit ‘ that comes with men being away from home, and yes, some of us are fortunate to be in Marekani….my ultimate question….How can this reallllllly stop????

    the problem with Kenyans is that they like to milk stories to death. unfortunately there is nothing that can be done in this case. we are not going to fight for the rights of children and those of grown men. so fight your own battles

    • kamaa said

      lets see who shall be the winner of the batlle if at all we shall succed it will be better on our side, we have been suffering for a long time now that it is our time to wake up since the whole story has just come out on the light

  15. kamaa said
