Sello Maake Ka Ncube News: Actor Sello Maake Ka-Ncube on his journey through abuse
South African veteran actor, Sello Maake Ka-Ncube, says he was only 24 years old when his abusive nature manifested itself.
Ka-Ncube opened up about his experience while talking to Gugu Mhlungu on Talk Radio 702 about the culture of violence in South African society.
He said he failed to understand how one moment, he would tell his then partner how much he loved her and then became abusive towards her a short while later. “I was fortunate to have this little voice inside of my head asking me what exactly I was doing,” he said.
He said he started examining himself and learnt of his insecurities and that they got worse when he was agitated.
Ka-Ncube said he was involved in an abusive relationship back in 1984. “It was just a thing I learnt from observing others in my community,” he said.
He said growing up in the township also made an impact, as he was exposed to violence while he was young. “You come across couples standing in the corner, and the next thing – smack! – growing up seeing this seemingly normal thing happening influences you,” he said.
Clinical psychologist Dr Ian Opperman explained why women stayed in an abusive relationship in an interview with DESTINY.
Opperman said that relationships were more about emotion than intellect. An intelligent, educated woman will stay in an abusive relationship, despite being equipped with all the knowledge she needs to protect herself and the awareness that she should not be staying with her partner.
He said patients often told him that they knew they should leave their husband or partner, but that they didn’t have the strength to do it because they loved them. Some are even scared that they would not find another partner if they left. The thinking seems to be that an abusive partner is better than no partner at all.
Because many abusive men appear to be quite normal and may actually have many positive qualities, the women in their lives often feel that they can “put up with” abuse.
“The abuser is not always abusive – they can be very charming, and when they beg for forgiveness, the woman thinks that there is hope for change,” said Opperman.
He adds that another reason an independent woman will stay in an abusive relationship is related to her past. Some of these women grow up in households where their father abused their mother and this leads them to think that being abused is the norm.
Men have been taught to be dominant and women have been taught to be submissive – this is what needs to change in our society.
