A 43 years old man shot and killed his partner, aged 38 and his partner’s niece aged 27 and injured his 16 years old daughter. He then turned the gun on himself and committed a suicide.

We can’t continue to always talk about women and children attacked by men who are supposed to love and respect them. These senseless killing are not just statistics but human beings who also have the right to life. We simply won’t take it anymore. The behavior displayed by perpetrators of of GBV is barbaric”
