Act tough on gender violence

GENDER-BASED violence, another sign of moral decadence, is spreading fast in the country.


Even President Robert Mugabe highlighted this in his speech at the 21st February Movement bash in Mutare. 


Violence should thus be put on the national agenda the same w

ay as corruption.
Gender violence must be condemned and the culprits given stiff sentences.
Delays in dealing with such crimes seem to abet this devious act.


I am behind those campaigning against gender-based violence and call upon all Zimbabweans to rally behind such campaigns.


There is no doubt that gender violence militates against the progression of women and humankind in social and economic development.


Hope,
Harare.
