Parliament is holding a two-day National Men’s Parliament to deliberate on various ways and means to combat the scourge of Gender-Based Violence against women and children.

The second national annual Men’s Parliament comes just before the official launch next week of the 16 Days of Activism For No Violence Against Women and Children international campaign.

In his official opening of the virtual gathering, Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Lechesa Tsenoli, said it is only befitting that the timing of this important meeting is held now prior to the campaign on 16 Days of Activism to fight the unwarranted violence against women and children.

“This is a critical role because what will emerge from here ought to have an impact that is visible-practical that can be felt in every neighborhood in our country. ”
