Tino took to twitter earlier in the day saying “Was beaten up for asking him to help me clean the house by washing the dishes while I did the laundry.” Later on she took to Facebook and posted the following statement on her wall.

“On Sunday the 11th of November 2012, I joined an alarming and ever increasing group of women who are victims of GBV in Zimbabwe. I speak to you now with chipped teeth, bruised ribs, swollen face, blood shot eyes, patches of uprooted hair from the pulling and a heavy heart BUT, I will also hasten to say that I write this statement because I’m alive.

“I’m a survivor but unfortunately that can’t be said for a lot of women. I’m not an exception; I have unfortunately become the norm. According to the 2005/6 (Zimbabwe Demographic and health survey) ZDHS nearly 6 in every 10 women surveyed reported having experienced some violence perpetrated against them.

“I want to thank everyone who is standing by me during this terrible time but I also ask you to not make it only about Tino. We are on the precipice of the beginning of the 16 days of activism against gender violence. Let’s band together and SAY NO TO VIOLENCE.

“Some people keep telling me not to talk about it. Some said keep it at home and ma”domestic”. Someone even said “Chakafukidza dzimba matenga and I must keep it quiet. I will not keep quiet, I will never keep quiet.”

    Aiwaka, inga tiri kubvuma kuti brian akapfuuridza mwero apa, akakanganisa zvakatonyanya uye anofanirwa kupiwa mutongo wakaoma; why now turn it into a public spectacle and why parade yourself infront of all? Wadini kuchienderera mberi wochitiudza kuti maikwirana kangani sezvo wave kuda kumira pachena?

      Kuti asapamhe zve iye Brian wacho!! Lesson inodzidzisa remember.

        On a lighter note; vana Chihera imimi, hamusiri here imi munotanga kukanda zvibhakera mudzimba umu asi kana madzorerwa maakuti mavara azara ivhu? Ndakakura side by side naana Chihera uye parizvino ndakaberekawo vangu vana Chihera vaviri, same traits which are characterised by sheer bull headedness. One day I had to make a hasty retreat during an argument with my sister when I declared that ” I am a lucky guy because I didn’t have to marry your kind, and if it were up to me I would have given all of you away at big discounts”. She thanked me for the vote of confidence and wanted to man-handle me all the same, ndizvo zvamuri vana Chihera… I often feel sorry for my vakuwasha..

    I truly believe that for justice to be served you should of cause share with us the reasons for your beating first if you want empathy from us. What did you do or say to get such a facial?

  • TinayeNZ

    You have failed to tell us what led to this beating. I’m not pro violence but @ times women take liberties and have to be disciplined. For instance if you gave his a STD you can imagine he would not be best pleased…

  • Thula

    No form of physical violance is acceptable so yes she should talk about it and raise awareness!

  • Guest

    ngaarohwe chaizvo!!! wakazviona kupi mukadzi achiudza baba mumba kuti suka ndiro. Thats taboo i our African culture. She must be beaten too hard for disgracing our culture. And besides, at that age she is still talking of boyfriend? Get married my sis, its time up!!! Vacharamba vachikurova maboyfriend ako iyayo!!

  • changamire dombo

    Kana Tin Tin ada zvokuudza vanhu more about her private life, she should come out in the open kuti she is a lesbian uye anoramba sex with her boyfriend uye kuti apa akarowerwa nyaya yekuti aiti murume tsvaira mumba wobva vageza ndiro iye achida kuenda kunosangana nemamwe malesbians and thats what irked the boyfriend. She should tell the world that the boyfriend is just a disguise but she is a lesbian who does not like the world to know, zvopera kwete kutiudza nyaya isiri iyo chaiyo yakakonzeresa. Tin tin kapoto kemunhu, katini chaiko.

  • Chirandu CheGono

    SHAME ON U BRIAN.I GREW UP IN THE 70s AND MY DAD USED TO SAY TO ME THESE WOMEN ARE PRECIOUS NEVER EVER ABUSE THEM.9 MONTHS ITS NOT A JOKE!

  • Openeyes

    What is shocking is the comments coming from the men on this subject, and to think these men were raised by women and they have such mentalities, with no shame. I hope all the men that speak such rubbish one day have a daughter, and that daughter goes through the same ordeal, and we will see then if their comments will be same in support of their daughters husband or boyfriend on hitting their daughter. Be careful what you support, for one day it shall come to haunt you.

  • Machuma

    Give us a break, that picture should be removed from the newspapers and deal with the case in the courts. Respect the young woman’s pain as she struggles to cope with a situation of physical emotional violence in a relationship.

    You went to get drunk Tino, and were behaving like a bar-bitch afterwards… So you were trying to seduce some famous crickersts and hopping to hook up with one of them? Well- bitchy behavioh leads to problems and by the way: At yo (advanced) age, In Harare Zimbabwe- You are still in a “COME-LETS-STAY” arrangement? Like kubika mapoto shuwa? Unonyadzisa and I sincerely hope that the rest of them girls out there diplore your behavior and dont ever copy you…

    Sorry Tino about what happened. I just want to try and get the facts on what really happened before Brine kicked Tino. Don’t you think he had some previous with our dear sister? Tino I would like to tell you that sort your problems with your boyfriend because you will not get anyone better than him. Men we are all the same. Unozowana anotokuchecheka nebanga kakuburitsa pfuti chaiyo.
