Human rights groups dealing with victims of domestic violence in the regions of Mwanza, Mara, Kagera, Shinyanga and Singida continue to support victims of that vile act through an effective network.

The programme officer Mr Zakaria Kulwa, said that Kivulini Women’s Right Organisation in Mwanza which supports other organizations dealing with domestic violence has continued to receive more cases of such cruel treatment of the fair sex on time and finding solutions.

He said that it was obvious women and domestic workers were now being able to understand their rights and turned out in large numbers to report such abuses. “We receive more than 10 cases of domestic violence everyday, which are registered by trained members of various networks including local government officials,” he said.
