Chama cha Wanahabari Wanawake nchini – TAMWA kinaungana na mashirika mengine yanayopinga vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia na kutetea haki za binadamu leo tarehe 6 Februari, 2017, kuadhimisha siku ya Kimataifa ya kupinga ukeketaji duniani.

 

Kauli mbiu mwaka huu ni “Ujenzi wa daraja shirikishi na imara kati ya Afrika na Dunia kuondoa ukeketaji ifikapo mwaka 2030” (“Building a solid and iteractive bridge between Africa and world to accelerate ending FGM by 2030) ambapo kwa mujibu wa utafiti wa Kiafya wa demografia wa (TDHS-MIS) mwaka 2015-16, umeeleza kuwa mwanamke mmoja kati ya kumi amekeketwa licha ya elimu ya kuhusu madhara ya ukeketaji kuendelea kutolewa kwa jamii kila mara

 

Utafiti huo umebaini kuwa, uelewe kuhusiana na ukeketaji unaongezeka kadri kiwango cha elimu kinavyoongezeka kutoka asilimia 71 ya wanawake hadi kufikia asilimia 97. Aidha, utafiti huo umebaini kuwa kiwango cha wanawake wenye umri kati ya miaka 15-29 waliokeketwa kimepungua kutoka asilimia 18 mwaka 1996 hadi asilimia 10 kwaka 2015.

 

TAMWA inaamini kuwa ukeketaji unaweza kuisha endapo jamii itapata elimu endelevu ya kuondokana na mila kandamizi kwani zinakiuka haki za binadamu na kudhoofisha afya za wasichana na wanawake kwa kutokwa damu nyingi kwa wanaokeketwa na hadi kusababisha kifo, madhara ambayo hurudisha nyuma juhudi za kimaendeleo ya familia na Taifa kwa ujumla.

 

Aidha TAMWA inaamini kuwa vyombo vya habari vina nguvu kubwa katika kuleta mabadiliko katika jamii ikiwemo vitendo vya ukeketaji na aina zote za ukatili wa kijinsia

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
    your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
