Fighting GBV in Migori County


The spread of COVID-19 pandemic accelerated a number of negative trends, including the erosion of human rights and democracy in Migori County.

This was according to Oruba OCS Shadrack Chesaroi who insisted that the government has remained unwavering in its commitment to gender equality and women and girls’ rights, particularly in the face of COVID-19, which has exacerbated existing inequalities and disproportionately impacted the lives of women and girls in Migori County and beyond.

The OCS said women experience physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime thus engaging the public shall eliminate such forms of violence against women and girls as core part of the government big four agenda.
