Policy unit to intensify work on domestic violence in 2019

Akilah Doris

With 22 persons murdered as a result of domestic violence up to November 30th  of last year,  Manager of the Domestic Violence Policy Unit Akilah Doris is cognizant that more needs to be done; she believes all must work together to fight this issue and there is need “to stop normalising gender-based violence on a whole.”

According to the figures Doris provided, 20 women and two men were killed by their intimate partners up to November of last year.

She pointed out that sexual violence, domestic violence and gender-based violence are still largely unreported because of the stigma attached and this goes back to the cultural make-up of the country…..
