Legal remedy for adultery is not resort to torture, degrading and inhuman treatment of an adulterous party!
We live in a pluralistic society full of conflicts and contradictions including clashes in interests and our laws exist to help resolve all these.
Therefore, provocations and painful infractions are bound to occur but we must act sensibly and rationally at all times.
When provoked, our reactions must not be in excess of the allowed legal limits as we are not living in a barbarous and uncivilized society.
Certainly and conclusively, adultery is not defended but the remedy for adultery is not recourse to torture, degrading and inhuman treatment of the adulterer(s).
The situation on hand in the trending video is worse because the strings of unabated whipping, shaming and gleefully parading the alleged female adulterer naked on camera came from a complete outsider to the marriage. This is ridiculous and manifestly indefensible.
Under our laws, that sister or aunt seen flogging that alleged adulterer in that video is a busy body or meddlesome interloper as she is not married to the adulterous man in question.
Clearly, she has no interest in that marriage to protect except worthless self esteem and savage ego.
Therefore, that sister or aunt was acting unlawfully on a frolic of her own as she has no legal defence to her senseless, wicked and capricious conduct.
Needless to say that by so doing, she has rendered herself liable to both criminal and civil damnation as she was “drinking Panadol for another person’s headache”.
She will learn how to mind her business next time and caution the foolish sister’s husband who doesn’t have regard and respect for his wife by bringing in another lady in their home.
I will stop here.
