Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has again reminded everyone of the serious need to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
Speaking to thousands of Fijians at Ratu Cakobau Park, Bainimarama says there is a collective responsibility to prevent such acts.
Bainimarama has urged everyone not to abuse and exploit the weak or less powerful.
“It’s time we start taking more preventive measures in our communities to protect our most vulnerable groups, our women and children from violence. when we allow violence to persist in our most intimate settings such as our homes that creates and infection of destructive behaviour that spreads throughout our society.”
Bainimarama says it is time for Fijians to work together and stop turning a blind eye to domestic violence and sexual attacks on women and children.
Bainimarama highlighted the need to create a better future for families where there’s no suffering and only love and support.
