"Tukomeshe Dhuluma" Women In Mombasa Sends A Message To The Government On Gender Violence Cases

Gender violence cases are increasing exponentially in our country, where women are the most affected in society. According to the latest news by the Nation Africa, Women in Mombasa have launched a drive against this issue, which comes a few days after three women were reported to have been humiliated. Ms. Makrina Mwamburi, an official of a non-governmental organization known as "Sauti Ya Wanawake" said that the drive will sensitize the locals against remaining silent in the face of such attacks. According to the women, these cases have been taking place on the farms, thickets, or when women and girls are on their way to water points.

“We have told those willing to report the attackers to police that their safety and that of their families are guaranteed. We don’t want to hear of a case of one getting killed or injured after making a statement to police,” she said during a gender working group meeting in Wundanyi.

Police have added to this by saying that these evil acts are mostly caused by drug and substance abuse, and they will work hand in hand with these courageous women to ensure that the law violators have been arrested. Many parts of this country are greatly affected, which makes the girl child feel insecure. What do you think the police should do to curb all this? Kindly leave your comments below.
