On the 3rd July 2017, the Gender consortium held a crucial Directors’ caucus in Manzini and resolved to stay the 4 clauses of Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence (SODV) Bill, 2015 which have hindered deliberations and subsequent enactment. These clauses elaborate on stalking, abduction, incest and flashing. However, the consortium position not to lead the clauses’ removal seeks to strengthen further the advocacy for the enactment of SODV Bill after attempts to see to it passed into law failed. The Bill has been deferred by the incumbent 10th Parliament since tabled in the House of Assembly in 2015.Tag: child, charity
