Kampala. Escalating cases of domestic violence during the political season are hindering women’s participation in the democratic process and becoming costly to families and country, activists said yesterday.
Women activists, under their local charity, the Centre for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP), warned partners against violent acts resulting from divergent political views that couples hold ahead of the 2016 general election, arguing that it is an indication of gender inequality and social injustice.
“Cases of domestic violence usually escalate as a result of elections where one partner supports a different candidate or party from their loved ones. This has sparked off fights and separations and increases vulnerability to economic development in a family,” said Ms Diana Kagere Mugerwa, the programme officer in charge of national advocacy at CEDOVIP.
