Zambian Govt Concerned About GBV Cases

The Zambian Ministry of Gender and Child Development has expressed sadness at the rising numbers of unreported cases of gender based violence

The Zambian Ministry of Gender and Child Development has expressed sadness at the rising numbers of unreported cases of gender-based violence (GBV) in that country.

The ministry’s Permanent secretary, Edwidge Mutale, argues that despite GBV being the worst violated human right in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, it is disturbing that these cases are not recorded or reported to the relevant authorities because it is exacerbated by households.

In a speech read by Simon Kapilima, the gender development specialist at the ministry at an official opening of a gender-based violence seminar hosted by Gender Link in Lusaka, she said GBV undermines the ability of women to effectively participate in national development.
