The incident above shows that there are people in society who have lost the sense of humanity and respect of others. We continue to advise partners in a toxic violent domestic setting to always seek help from the Child and Family Protection Unit, the nearest Police Station, Probation offices or NGOs advocating from family rights when it is still early. Remember it is your life and not any others.
