Speaker of Parliament, Doctor Jiko Luveni

Speaker of Parliament, Doctor Jiko Luveni said she will continue to look at the realities when dealing with domestic violence and sexual violence.

Doctor Luveni said although some NGOs have made assumptions that she is blaming the victims of violence when saying that women should not aggravate the situation at home with their partners, she is only looking at different situations and talking about solutions.

She said while people may say that women can do anything, they should ask the question whether women can go and drink alcohol with men in the bushes.

Doctor Luveni said some of the cases have come up where the women have been raped.

She said she is not blaming the victims but is just asking people to look at the reality of the situation.  

Doctor Luveni stressed that it all comes back to family values and everyone should work together to have happy, caring and loving families.
