Government has appointed an Anti-Domestic Violence Council to stop the scourge of domestic violence through monitoring and implementing the Domestic Violence Act.

The 12-member council includes traditional leaders, Government officials and members of the civil society.

Minister of Women’s Affairs, Gender and Community Development, Nyasha Eunice Chikwinya said the appointments were precipitated by the increase in cases of domestic violence which has seen families disintegrate.

“I was eagerly waiting for this day to have a council in place to assist my ministry to address the scourge of domestic violence.”
