Stop shaming victims of Gender-Based Violence – Doreen Majala
Lawyer and Media personality, Doreen Majala has called on social media users to stop attacking and shaming victims of Gender-Based Violence who openly speak about their ordeals.
She went on to say that until someone experiences GBV first hand, they may not know how badly it affects someone.
Ms Majala mentioned that she has been a victim of Gender-based Violence and that social media can either build or break a person.
“Today I speak. As one who walked that path. Social media is a platform of influence, it can build/break. Let’s stop shaming & attacking victims who come out. Male/Female. Until you experience or a loved one, you may not understand the magnitude.
To bloggers who are my fellow colleagues in the media industry, as you highlight GBV stories, remember to uphold the dignity of victims. Let’s not publish headlines for views. Some victims withstand heat while others get a mental breakdown. Everyone has a life after any ordeal,” tweeted Doreen Majala.
Gender-Based Violence Report
Her words come just a day after a report by the Ministry of Public Service and Gender, said that between January 2020 and December 2020, a total of 5,009 cases of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) were formally reported.
According to CS Margaret Kobia, this was a 36 per cent increase (1,411 more cases) from the previous year.
