Mutharika made the comments at a time when the world is commemorating 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence. He said communities and law enforcers are fully armed to combat GBV in the country.

“My government continues to fight gender violence with an iron fist because it is an inhumane and backward conduct not to be condoned.

“Communities and law enforcement agencies are now well equipped to fight gender-based violence using a multi-sectoral approach. Perpetrators are swiftly brought to book while victims are offered solace and rehabilitation if need be,” said President Mutharika.

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

The international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991.
