“When he came back, he told me to cook rice. And as I was cooking the rice, he asked me why I did not wash the plates. I did not reply. He then asked why I wasn’t responding to his question. In the process, he slapped me. But I told him I usually have ear problems, and that people don’t slap me. As I was saying that, he angrily asked why I was interrupting him and he slapped me again.

I got angry and we started fighting. After he overpowered me, I looked around and saw a pestle which I used in hitting him. I struck him three times with the pestle and stopped after he started bleeding”
