GBV cases still present in WP, says CSPR
Western Province CSPR regional coordinator Mubiana Kakenenwa says gender based violence cases are still being recorded in the province despite introducing a number of progragrammes to sesitise and train people in communities.
In an nterview today, Kakenenwa attributed the continued cases to the high cost of living.
‘The recent increase in fuel and other social amenities prices is leading to people to fail to cope, as a result some of the GBV cases are recorded in homes, whereas men start abusing their spouses due to the high cost pof living,’’ the Civil Society for Poverty Reduction leader said.
Kakenenwa further urged citizens to put a human face to whatever works they were doing .
‘’Recently we saw citizens that used to dedicate their time to doing communual works and helping the needy.’’ Said Kakenenwa.
Western Province recorded 15 GBV cases in the first quarter of last year.
