If you believe the government is the only one responsible for combating Gender-Based Violence in our community, you are not alone; I used to believe the same thing for a while but not longer. The fight against GBV is not a one-way traffic; it is a community-wide effort.
With that said, Kings FM has chosen not to settle for less and has chosen to join forces with other tribes and position itself as the savior of the southern highlands through our TUZUNGUMZE UKATILI radio program.
The program debuted in early March 2023, hosted by our very own Sophia Issa, who used the microphone to speak out against sodomizing and raping children and women, which has been widely reported in our region.
Tuzungumze Ukatili has thus found itself in an exceptionally good position with a new partnership, where we are now working together with the Legal and Human Rights Center (LHRC), Tanzania’s leading organization in the fight against all forms of human rights violation.
“In the first three months of Tuzungumze Ukatili, more than seven harassment and discrimination cases were reported to police stations and admitted to court. More than ten women from the Njombe and Iringa regions received family support and were successful in relocating the House Maid to the Manyara region after being harassed for a long time while working in the Njombe region.”
We are very humble and proud that through this program, we have expanded our network and collaborated with the Njombe Regional Police Commissioner’s office, the Regional Gender and Children Desk, social workers, LHRC, local government leaders, religious leaders, and traditional, cultural, and social leaders.
Join us every Tuesday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Tuzungumze Ukatili or be part of our team/partners today.
