KEY FACTS

  • Citizens rank the country at 54% when it comes to achieving the SADC Gender Protocol targets related to GBV.
  • Swaziland falls into last position in this category out of the 15 countries in the SADC region.
  • Comprehensive data on GBV is still lacking.
  • All rape cases have been moved to the High Court which allows for tougher sentences.
  • Comprehensive legislation that addresses all forms of GBV is lacking, for example the Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Bill of 2005 does not include marital rape and sexual harassment.
