The National government has promised to fast track the setting up of a Gender Based Violence (GBV) Recovery Centre to curb the increasing number of domestic violence in Nyandarua County.

Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Rachel Shebesh, while regretting that the COVID 19 pandemic had led to a spike in GBV cases, said the setting up of the recovery center in Nyandarua was long overdue and will come in handy to ensure victims heal and get justice.

She regretted that women and men were being harassed in their homes and hence need to have a safe haven for victims to run to.

Shebesh urged Kenyans to tolerate one another during this time when the Country was battling COVID 19, by adopting a new normal. She was speaking while she oversaw issuance of National affirmative action funds worth 15 million to vulnerable groups by the Nyandarua Women representative Faith Gitau.
