Domestic Violence and Gender Based Violence Continue to Plague Liberians

Domestic and Gender Based Violence continue to be major problems in Liberian society including here in Bong County. Of about two hundred and fifty five inmates currently behind bars at Gbarnga Central Prison, seventy are there for sexual violence offences. But anti-violence activists say cases that make it to conviction are just a tiny share of the true number of cases.

As Nukanah Kollie reports for Super Bongese Radio in Bong County, activists say more needs to be done to see the proper enforcement of the Domestic Violence act signed into law in 2019 and to prevent these crimes that devastate victims and families across the country every day.
