Controversial radio presenter Andrew Kibe had added his voice to a debate on violence against men saying he is a victim of physical abuse by a woman.
The Kiss 100 presenter opened up about his own experience during the breakfast show on Monday, recalling how a heated argument with a former lover turned physical, with the woman throwing a shoe at him before attacking him.
“There was a time I was with this chic and we were having a heated argument. Please note at this time, we were just using our mouths. She says she wants to go sit in the car. I tell her to chill for the story to be over then we leave,” narrated Kibe.
“She tries to grab the keys from my pocket and I tell her to chill, and now she tries to forcefully get the keys from my pocket, and I hold her hand, telling her to chill.
“This chick grabs a shoe and throws it at me. I go in for the grab again and tell her to relax. She took a bite at my chest. I have a mark till today and it happened years ago,” he recalled.
According to Kibe, his experience is an example of how men aren’t believed when they expose women who are physically abusive. He said nobody believed his story.
“But the story is this, all that was not seen but my reaction to the bite. The man in this country is under siege and he cannot speak of himself being battered. It does not matter how much I complain and no one is going to listen to me. Nobody believed me because I sounded like a crazy person,” he said.
“This is something that goes on because I know friends who go through the same. And to make it worse, there are worse stories but they cannot come out. It hurts more because if she screams, you are the one who is inflicting pain in the woman.”
