Andulo — The Angolan MP, Amélia Calumbo Quintas, Wednesday in Andulo, some 130 kilometres north of Kuito city, central Bié province, appealed to the society and the media to work in publicising the cases of domestic violence.
Speaking to Angop, on the occasion of the 16 days of activism, from Novembro 25 to December 10, the MP said the cases of domestic violence have been on a drastic rise, affecting the society as compared to the past when they were recorded in the homes alone.
She stated that the cases of domestic violence have been destroying thousands of families in the country, particularly in the province of Bie.
The MP on the occasion drew the attention to the lack of respect noted between adults and children everywhere in public places.
She recalled that the law on domestic violence passed by the National Assembly (Angolan Parliament) was designed to curb violent behaviours and punish excesses.
