MAKIRA Ulawa province’s Provincial Police Commander (PPC), Peter Sitai has appealed to the people to support each other in the fight against violence.
As guest of honour, he made the call whilst speaking at the opening of Kirakira Family Support Center’s second campaign to stop violence against women and girls at Ngoragnora.
Sitai expressed that the primary focus is for everyone to work together to disseminate reliable information across all sectors of the communities so people can understand more about the issue and in turn, help prevent and reduce the risks of being exposed to violence.
“It is everyone’s business to advocate against violence as this issue is perhaps politically, economically, socially, technology, legally and of course environmentally influenced”, he said.
Sitai also said that there is no cause of domestic violence to justify the actions and that it should not be used as rational behaviour.
He mentioned that one way to find out the possible causes of violence is to better understand why the abuser believes violence is acceptable.
Sitai assured people of Makira province that the provincial police will do whatever it can to support the campaign program.
