Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris on Monday night engaged Kibra men in a candid discussion on violence against women at a popular bar in the area.

Passaris visited Terminus Pub at Olympic at around mid-night and started a discussion with the revelers.

The men defended violence perpetrated by love sick men, stating that women had become parasites.

"Mama county, hawa wasichana wanakula wanaume, ukweli usemwe wasichana waache kukula wanaume... kama amekula hii nyumba yote, mi nimeuza nyumba kwa sababu yake na amekula yote, mimi nabaki na nini?" one man questioned.

Passaris urged the men not to commit murder on claims that a woman had squandered their money.


"Amemuua sasa atafanya life in jail, amefaidika na nini? Wanaume, mkikaa na wanaume wenzenu mzungumze kuhusu wasichana ambao wanauliwa. Kama msichana hakutaki hakutaki, kama amefika kiwango amepata mwingine wajua kuna wasichana wengi," she said.

Passaris has in the past spoken on violence against women urging the society to find alternative ways of resolving disputes without violence.

I had a candid talk at Terminus Pub about the current spate of killings of women by men they are romantically linked to. Men, what do you do when a relationship doesn't go your way? How do you handle the pressure or the frustrations of a romantic relationship? #MamaTaaMtaani pic.twitter.com/hisxuLZ6Zz
