Speak out against violence: Police


SUPERVISING Police Commissioner Juanita Matanga says police will be part of the 16 days activism campaign on violence against women and girls starting this weekend.

She said with the theme for this year ‘herem voice blo mi’ Police has come up with some key messages in which they wanted to remind the public and make aware to the community.

“Use your voice report violence against women and girls, use your voice speak about violence against women and girls use your voice you are not alone.

“Rape is a crime therefore we must stop it, rape is a crime and it is not good, incest is also a crime and must be stopped so these are the key messages we want to send out during the 16 days activism week”, Matanga said.

She said Police will continue to do awareness and educate people with regards to violence.

“We have done a lot of awareness and programs in the past and we will continue to do but it’s up to our people for them to take heed of our awareness”, Matanga said.

She said violence and sexual offences are everybody’s concern.

Victims will have scars for the rest of their lives. She said everyone in society must work together to reduce the increased cases of violence and sexual issues affecting women, girls and children in this country.
