Rita has replied to all those who advised her when her husband ordered her to pack and leave the house. This is her letter.
Dear loving friends,
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and concern. Your advice comforted me and gave me strength to live on. I was on the verge of despair.
When my husband ordered me to pack and leave the house, I did not know what was behind it. He had pretended to be such a good and loving husband. I did not know he was such a hypocrite.
When he returned from work that day, I was there waiting for him. Hardly did I know he had planned the worst for me. Our discussion erupted into a serious quarrel; then turned into a fight. He got a cutlass to butcher me. By some miracle, I managed to overpower him and to escape. I am now away, feeling safe.
I have got what’s behind all this. He met a girl and they planned to marry. What I can’t understand is just yesterday I got a letter fom him asking me to return to the house saying he does not know what came over him. I am scared because he actually attempted to butcher me.
I am at a loss what to do
Again, thank you for your love and best wishes from my heart.
