 GOVT SEEKS INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO END GBV

By Meclina Chirwa 

Government has raised alarm that gender based violence remains widespread despite several interventions.

This pushed Minister of Gender, Community Development and Social Welfare Patricia Kaliati to support Plan International Malawi’s awareness drive in Lilongwe on Thursday where among others participants displayed placards and wore makeup to symbolize scale of abuse in the country. 

According to Kaliati, existing gaps in the battle against GBV must be dealt with by reaching to as many people as possible with messages.

Kaliati said the 16 days of activism against gender based violence should remind all Malawians that GBV has no place in society.

In this regard, she has called on all stakeholders to explore innovative strategies to end violence. 

In her remarks, Plan International Malawi country director Phoebe Kasoga also had no kind words for perpetrators.

Kasoga said it is worrying that most abuse occurs in homes.
