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, 2018,  kuadhimisha siku ya Kimataifa ya kupinga ukeketaji duniani.

 Maadhimisho haya yanaenda sambamba na kauli mbiu ya “Kufanya kazi pamoja kuongeza nguvu ya kumaliza Ukeketaji katika Kizazi Kipya” ambayo inaitaka jamii kushirikiana pamoja kupinga vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia kwa wanawake na watoto ukiwemo ukeketaji.

 

 Kwa mujibu wa utafiti wa Afya ya Uzazi na Mtoto (TDHS-MIS) mwaka 2015-16, umeeleza kuwa mwanamke mmoja kati ya kumi amekeketwa ambapo aina ya ukeketaji maarufu ni ile ya kukata nyama na kuiondoa kwa asilimia 81 licha ya elimu ya madhara ya ukeketaji kutolewa kwa jamii.

 Utafiti huo umebaini kuwa, uelewe kuhusiana na ukeketaji unaongezeka kadri  kiwango cha elimu kinavyoongezeka kutoka asilimia 71 ya wanawake  wasiokuwa na elimu hadi kufikia asilimia 97 ya wenye elimu ya sekondari na zaidi. 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 kwakua 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.

 Aidha TAMWA inaamini kuwa endapo vyombo vya habari vitaendelea kutoa elimu ya kuondoa ukeketaji, itasaidia kupunguza ukatili huo kwani vina nguvu katika kuleta mabadiliko ya jamii ikiwemo kuondokana na ukeketaji na aina zote za ukatili wa kijinsia.

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!|
