Nicola Traldi was on Tuesday 21st, June 2022 arraigned before Kiambu Law Courts for allegedly causing grievous bodily harm on his Girlfriend Chantal Grazioli.
The news of his abuse was shared by Eric Omondi on his social
“Any man who puts his hands on a woman is a COWARD!!! Nicola Traldi is a Coward. He is Weak and Insecure. A man’s strength is fully shown when he PROTECTS a woman and not when he puts his hands on her.
This is UNACCEPTABLE and he will face the Full WRATH of the LAW!!! He will serve as an example to all those UNCOUTH, UNCIVILIZED, and PRIMITIVE men who physically assault women to feel they are STRONG!!! @miss.chanty”
Traldi reacted to the news by saying that he can never do such a thing as he is a father of two.
He added that his mother brought him up well and taught him to never lay his hands on a woman.
“I have been framed for something I would never do, unspeakable. It’s a sad day. I would never lay my hands on a lady, I am a father of 2 daughters,” he said.
“Everyone who knows me knows I am incapable of such a thing. My mum taught me well. The truth shall come out.”
Eric alleged that the abuse has been going on for months.
In a detailed post, Chantal had explained what transpired on the night she was beaten up.
“This is to bring to the public limelight that nicolatraldi came drunk, agitated, and broke into my house Friday 17th morning since I had refused to let him in as I didn’t want any confrontations with him while drunk.
He assaulted me badly and pushed me down the stairs as you saw from the video that was posted by @ericomondi. The photos posted as well are from previous assaults, it being not the 1st, the 2nd, the 3rd and unaccountable times that Nicola has assaulted and threatened me.”
Chantal says Nicola has been threatening and intimidating her for wanting to go to the media.
“On numerous occasions, he has asked me to shun away from the media which I did due to fear of being humiliated and assaulted.
I was afraid to come out but on Friday being the worst, I reached out to my mum to no avail, in the meantime my neighbors, security, and the caretaker came to my rescue.
I reached out to Eric who was able to come through and assisted me from there henceforth and also came out to the public on my behalf.
We followed all the protocols that were required from us by the police and hospital ( both private and public) but until now Nicola has not been arrested and he took my sim card, my phone, my car keys, and my house keys. “
The damsel added that Nicola was unreachable after putting his phone off
“While he was assaulting me, he threatened me that he would come back and do it again and there was nothing I would do because he knows the big people.
This puts my life in danger since I have no idea what he will do next. If he claims that he is being framed why can he not present himself at the police station, he is not reachable either.
It is traumatizing and not easy for me physically and emotionally, and neither is it not easy for any form of GBV victims irrespective of who is involved and especially those who cannot come out and speak about it. The majority are helplessly dying in silence.
It is very very sad GBV is not taken seriously in this country.”
