Vijana Rombo na raia wa nchi jirani wabaka wanawake wakijishughulisha na kilimo mashambani

WANANCHI wa Kijiji cha Ushiri Wilayani Rombo mkoani Kilimanjaro, wameliomba Jeshi la Polisi mkoani humo, kukomesha vitendo vya unyanyasaji wa kijinsia vikiwemo vya ubakaji vinavyofanywa na vijana wakiwemo raia wa nchi jirani, dhidi ya wanawake wanapokuwa mashambani katika ukanda wa chini wa Wilaya hiyo, inaripoti Fikra Pevu.

Wananchi hao wametoa ombi hilo leo Mei 28, 2014 wakiwa katika uzinduzi wa kikundi cha Askari wa ulinzi shirikishi wa Polisi wa Kijiji hicho, kufuatia ongezeko la vitendo vya kihalifu vinavyofanywa na baadhi ya watu wasiofahamika na kuwafanya waishi kwa hofu na kuacha mali zao zikiharibika mashambani.

Mtendaji wa Kata ya Ushiri Ikuini, Benard Njau, amesema uanzishwaji wa vikundi hivyo unatokana na walinzi wa kikundi cha ‘mtambo’ kushindwa kudhibiti uhalifu huo pamoja na uhalifu wa wizi wa mifugo, uvutaji bangi na ulevi wa kupindukia.

Utafiti wa Kitaifa wa Afya uliofanywa mwaka 2010 umeonyesha kuwa asilimia 42 ya wanawake na watoto wanaofanyiwa vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia mkoa wa Kilimanjaro ikiwa nafasi ya sita kwa kuwa na asilimia hiyo ambayo ni zaidi na kiwango cha ukatili huo kwa nchi nzima.
