We Are Committed To Fighting Gender Based Violence - ZRP

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) says it is committed to fighting all forms of Gender Based Violence (GBV).

Speaking on the sidelines of commemorations of 16 Days against GBV, Acting Midlands Provincial Police Spokesperson, Assistant Inspector, Fungai Ngawagare said:

We cannot turn a blind eye to such an initiative (16 days) which is part of efforts in curbing crime.

In this regard, the Zimbabwe Republic Police is obliged to uphold the interests of children, women and men in the fight against all forms of Sexual Gender Based Violence.

Gender-Based Violence is violence involving men and women in which the female is usually the victim and is derived from unequal power relationships between men and women.

Violence is directed specifically against a woman because she is a woman, or affects women disproportionately.

It includes but is not limited to physical, sexual, and psychological harm. It includes that violence which is perpetuated or condoned by the state.

She said ZRP was working with organisations that protect the rights of vulnerable people in society which include Msasa, One Stop Centre, Childline, Family Support Trust and Social Welfare.

Every year from 25 November to 10 December, the ZRP women’s network joins the Southern Africa Region Police Chiefs Co-operation Organization (SARPCCO) in commemorating 16 days of activism against GBV.

The SARPCCO member countries include South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique, Angola, Malawi, Tanzania and DRC. | TellZim News

Of the few women accused of GBV how many were convicted and for how long as compared to men ,,, better call it WBV "woman based violence"

The best and correct starting point is correctly defining the term "GBV" or "Intimate Partner Violence". Because the current baised definition is skewing the lines and causing more harm than good.

Because GBV or IPV is not violence against women. No .
GBV or IPV is basically any form of violence, aggression, discrimination or abuse against anyone based on their gender.

And another starting point is involving everyone, both men and women, young and old, at all levels and have an honest conversation on the basics.

It's sad that the laws of GBV are used as a tool against men by women because they appear inferior and vulnerable, therefore they convince the law enforcement agents that they are innocent.

@tafman, @**** and @The Mad Genius, I beg to differ. Women experience more GBV than men so the police should take GBV against women more seriously in order to get rid of the gap between GBV on women and on men. Same way inotaurwa racism against black people but pasingataurwe racism against white people because blacks experience more racism.

lf that's the case we shld have seen partenity leave amoung officers and female officers children being able to be treated at ZRP Camp clinics.

also domestic violence against men should be taken seriously that's the reason why most men commit suicide because no one is there to listen to their stories even if they report their cases it will be a joke to the officers at charge office

Our government is busy extinguishers smoke and flem instead of extinguishers the source . On the other side they add fuel to that . 1. They say hands off on partner's phone zvinoita kuti vakadzi va**** zvakanyanya vachiti phone yangu haibatwi munoreva kuti mukadzi akaramba nephone yake chero pasina chiripo anobviswa mazino
2.Ukabata mukadzi anechikomba hanzi usarova saka zvikomba nevakadzi vacho vava kutodaidzana kuti hende kumba chero tikabatwa hapana zvatinoitwa ukabata vanhu pakadero ungarega kuisa munhu demo
3 Ukabata munhu aine mukadzi wako ukamuisa kumapurisa vanoti Havana mhosva yavanomutonga nayo nekuti kubatwa uine mukadzi wemunhu haisi mhosva asi mukadzi akadzi akaroorwa nevarume vaviri hanzi imhosva inotomupinza mujeri unoshaya kuti chakakosha kuti mukadzi a****.
4 .Akada kuramba mukadzi ahura vanoti sheyanai property kana muine imba mukadzi unofanirwa kutomupa room yake apa iye anga asingaendi kubasa kuna achienda kubasa mari yemukadzi inonzi haibatwi ndeyake nezvaanotenga ndazvake hapana kusheyana asi zvinoshandwa nemurume ndozvamuno sheyana apa wakaroora . Marambana wamupa imba yake anotopinza zvikomba zvake uchiona muchitosangana kubath nechikomba ndokusaka vazhinji vachiti kana mukadzi ahura vanomupisira mumba nevana iye ozviuraya .
Best thing kutarisa kuti chii chakonzera violence moona kuti zvinoita here kuti munhu aiswe mujeri kana kuti asasungwa nekuti pamwe unoona kuti chero naiyewo anouya kuzosunga munhu dai ariiye azviitirwa anongozosvika pakuita violence . Pamwe pacho unisvika pakuti munhu ngaa****bwa anyanya kujairira.
Varikowo varume vanongorova vakadzi pasina kana nenyayairipo ivavo ngavasungwe vanorovera mukadzi kubata phone yake , kurovera mukadzi kumubvunza kuti waunaye ndiyani , wakararepi , mari waisepi ivavo ngavasungwe.
