As I was reading the morning news, I came upon the 2 Namibian news papers I read Monday through Friday.
I saw a video, the video grabbed my attention because it was a man pulling a woman’s hair as she screamed. There is another woman in the video and she’s trying to get the woman from the man’s grips.
There was a fight for the women to try to get the woman freed from his hands. He’s pulling her hair, hitting her and then throws her to the ground. She’s identified as being pregnant, the man is identified as being a police officer.
These are the words that were over the video;
UNDER INVESTIGATION … Namibian Police spokesperson deputy commissioner Kauna Shikwambi says the police are investigating a case of a Windhoek-based police reservist, Valentino Endjala, who was seen violently manhandling his allegedly pregnant girlfriend in a video that has gone viral.

I went to the comment section because I was hoping someone who had seen the video could explain why he was beating on her. But I only came onto comments blaming the two women in the video.
Men blamed her friend for trying to stop the man from grabbing her and pulling her hair.
Some men came to the comments to disrespect the women, which was not a huge surprise but I didn’t think so many.
