DIGP on gender violence;
Cases of gender-based violence are on the rise in the country and more so after the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj.Gen.Steven Muzeeyi Sabiiti recently said there is need to worry about the ever-rising cases of gender-based violence across the country.
“Many of us take the statistics as just numbers but these are our people. They are out sisters, mothers, brothers and other relatives. We need to look at these worrying statistics and get timely interventions,” Muzeeyi said on Tuesday as he opened the training of Police officers on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and sexual Reproductive Health Rights at Kibuli CID Headquarters in Kampala last month.
