Minister of Information, Communications, and Technology, Peya Mushelenga has announced that Cabinet has approved the government to pronounce and declare Gender-Based Violence a threat to humanity in the country. Nampa reports that Mushelenga made the announcement this week while announcing cabinet decisions at the COVID-19 Communication Centre in Windhoek. He said that Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila has been directed to issue a Parliamentary Statement to that effect instead of the proposed declaration of the State of Emergency which was proposed by protestors against GBV last week, who demonstrated in streets demanding that government do something to protect women and young girls against GBV perpetrators.
