The videos which have gone viral has generated a lot of debate with many social media users social media users are demanding that the Police investigate the circumstances surrounding the “derogatory punishment” after he was allegedly caught in a “compromising position” with another man’s wife.
Lawyer Miriam Majome (@Majomemiriam) said the “barbarism” in the videos is unacceptable. “Adultery is not a crime; so, there was nothing to report to the Police.
“There are civil remedies open to the husband such as adultery damages and divorce. This barbarism is unacceptable. Generally, the increasing lawlessness in this country is disappointing,” she tweeted.
Lawyer Majome’s tweet was in a reply to a similar sentiment shared by Nevanji Madanhire (@nevanjim) that “even then he didn’t deserve the humiliation; he should have been reported to the police and properly prosecuted. This treatment of suspects is criminal.”
