Behind the Headlines 17.12.12

Bulawayo East MP Tabitha Khumalo, talks to Tererai about statistics released by the Victim Friendly Unit of the Zim police last week, showing that more than 2,400 cases of child rape had been reported between January and October this year. A total of 3,421 cases of child abuse were reported in that same period. It’s believed many more cases are unreported, due to fear and shame. Khumalo said a clear message must be sent to victims that the only way to heal is to talk about the experience with others and not be ashamed.
