Speak openly about violence: President

October 8, 2017 4:20 am

There is a need to speak openly and discuss gender based violence within our community.

President Major General Ret’d Jioji Konrote in supporting the ‘Man Up Campaign’ said violence against women and children is illegal, immoral, and can never be justified.

“It is a matter of shame and disgrace that violence against women is reported in such high numbers in our beloved Fiji – a nation we claim is the way the world should be. Our combined action is well overdue to combat this life-threatening problem.”

Konrote says every Fijian must stand up and eradicate this violence from our nation.
