MP Raises Concern Over Rising Domestic Violence Cases

Kaiti MP Joshua Kimilu has raised the alarm over the rising number of domestic violence cases in the country.

The MP has called in families to find ways of settling domestic rows to avoid violence.

Kimilu has argued that much of the violent cases in families are caused by drugs noting that they are causing the breakage of families.

"Acts of Violence in families have risen, and many are caused by the use of drugs; I am calling on our people to understand that the economy is not good, let us watch our people not to get into drug abuse," Kimilu argued.

The MP has called on parents to continue counseling their children against drug use.

Speaking when he met bodaboda operators, the MP called on all leaders, including religious leaders, to help counsel the youth who are growing up.

Kimilu has been meeting bodaboda groups in Kaiti Constituency in a safety and security sensitization exercise.

"I am meeting bodaboda operators in my constituency, I have been meeting them and speaking to them, I have realized there is need to train them on saving their daily income," He added.

He has also condemned the harassment and arrest of journalists and elected leaders.

This comes after nine journalists and area MP in Embu were arrested and harassed by police officers.

"I want to condemn the incident where police in Mwea were captured harassing journalists. Journalists have the right to move in this country freely and do all news stories. The police should also retract from arresting leaders fighting for the people who elected them," the MP said.
