In a lengthy Instagram post, Criselda Dudumashe described that her husband 'raised his hand' and beat her.
JOHANNESBURG - Social activist and radio personality Criselda Dudumashe has laid a charge of domestic violence against her husband.
In a two-part Instagram post, Dudumashe detailed how her husband Prince Siyolo Dudumashe beat her on January 21.
"Yes, yesterday on 21 January 2019, my husband raised his hand on me and beat me.
With the work that I do, in part advocating for women in abusive relationships and having previously lived through abuse, I know that it’s a beginning with no end", she wrote.
She said although her husband was extremely supportive, she saw the red flags but chose to ignore them.
"For a good 19 years it seemed like I had overcome the abuse. I made my three beautiful daughters the centre of my world and promised them to never again expose them to a violent and abusive home."
Criselda has asked for privacy in order to deal with this 'tragedy.'
