Battered: Crime and Justice case file #05Watch full episodes
The detectives are in a tough position when one of their colleagues is at the centre of a domestic violence case.
When a case of domestic violence involves a colleague, Makena and Silas find themselves entangled in a sticky fix between their boss who is trying to prevent a scandal and bringing their colleague to justice.
Patricia Kihoro plays Tina, a woman stuck in an abusive marriage to a high-ranking detective, Peter, played by Melvin Alusa.
It’s a topical and tragic episode of Crime and Justice that examines how complacent society has become to domestic violence. Kihoro says it means a lot to her to be able to tell Tina’s story. “Getting into this role meant shedding a lot of myself and tapping into an experience that I know is real for countless women, not only in Kenya but around the world,” says Kihoro. “That it is commonplace for women to be trapped in such marriages is gut-wrenching.”
Episode 5 also stars Serah Ndanu and Angie Mwandanda.
