A video of a woman beating up her husband has gone viral on social media, sparking different reactions.
The video starts with the woman biting her husband’s finger as she rains slaps on him. You can hear people laughing as the wife struggled to speak with the finger in her mouth.
The man clearly in pain begs the woman to let go of his finger. He tries to block the slaps, but the wife has held his free arm.
“Leave my finger alone. Let me go and search for money. Leave my finger, or you can as well bite the whole hand,” the man pleaded.
However, the woman would hear none of that as she continued to rain slaps on him. She further continued to question him why he is not taking up his manly duties as the man of the house.
“Watoto wamekula? Wamekula? Watoto wamekula?” she asked.
She then takes off his finger from his mouth and continues asking him questions. The woman, visibly angry, spits on the man before proceeding to ask questions.
“I’m asking you. Have the kids eaten? Have they? Have you paid rent? Mimi ndo mwanamke ama Mimi ndo mwanaumme?”
The man then proceeds to ask her what she wants from him.
“What do you want?” the man asks.
The woman angrily responds that she wants the man to take care of his family by paying rent and providing food.
“Nataka ulipe nyumba na ununue chakula.”
You can hear a child crying throughout as another one silently watches.

This video has solicited mixed reactions with some netizens claiming that if it were the man hitting the lady, there would be protests.
However, other netizens felt that the man deserved it. According to them, the woman is only asking the man to take up his duties. They further added that the man was drunk, yet he was not providing for his family.
