The National Youth Council on Friday launched the 14th National Youth Week aimed to sensitize the public on Sexual Gender-Based Violence. Speaking at the launch, NYC Executive Chairperson Sharonice Busch, said the reality and the rate of SGBV in Namibia is undeniable and extremely concerning, per the Namibia Press Agency. Therefore, concerted and coordinated efforts are required to respond to, prevent and ultimately eliminate the form of violence that has become a serious blemish to the national conscience. Busch revealed that the NamPol GBV Protection Unit, between January and October 2020 alone, recorded over 3 900 cases of SGBV.
