“The bill comes into place when we really need it. Cases of Gender Based violence have become increasingly high. The Bill clearly stipulates where a victim of Gender Based violence is supposed to go, the procedure, where to get help and how to report the cases and ensuring that the cases are keenly taken care of,the figures increase every day. We have cases which are never reported and that’s the reason why we came up with this bill;for people to know where to report,”Wanjiru said

The MCA for Jasho ward in Kasarani Sub County, Hon Anthony Ngaruiya Mburu also said that cases of the male being violated have also been taking place and building of the centres will also help the Male victims.

“Looking at the bill, it will help the victims of Gender Based violence. It is for both the male and female victims. The bill will help the government in helping curb the cases. We know the county and national governments are in a position of ensuring Gender Based violence is fully eliminated” said Ngaruiya.
