Late actor Patrick Shai who earlier this week killed himself had a history of abusing his wife. His wife Masechaba told a local publication:

"Every time I heard his car park in the garage in the middle of the night I prepared myself for him. He would chase me in the middle of the night and beat me until I turned blue. He would then wake up in the morning, apologize and promise to not do it again".

Patrick later led a campaign against spousal abuse.
