Let us fight against rape


EDITOR — I am alarmed at the rate at which women and especially children are being sexually violated by shameless individuals in our society.

Everyday, reports of rape of both minors and women flood our media, police stations while many others are unreported.

I call upon the responsible authorities to take sterner measures to curb this evil.

They need to impose stiffer penalties on sexual offenders and carry out intensive awareness campaigns against this vice.

These campaigns should reach even the most remote areas in our country were many other cases go unreported.

NGOs and other donors also need to play their part as they are in this fight.

To all men out there, let us be a source of protection to our children and women of Zimbabwe.

Let us stand behind them especially the little ones who look up to us for guidance, inspiration, comfort and protection.
