When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Kenya, cases of gender-based violence exploded. But a combination of fear, stigma and a lack of trust in the police mean the majority of cases are never reported. It has been described as Kenya’s ‘hidden epidemic’.

Africa Eye reporter Tom Odula investigates the deep-seated roots behind the violence, discovers the trauma behind the shocking statistics, and explores the police and government inaction that leaves survivors with little hope of justice.

More PeKKKa PROPAGANDA! The RACIST State Owned British BBC are SCUM! The ONLY Place where an EPEDEMIC of VIOLENCE against WOMEN is Occurring is in EUROPE and in BRITAIN especially the WHITE SAVAGES are RAPING and KILLING their women in even more numbers than before COVID 19, they didnt need any excuse? It’s what they have done for centuries, their Mysogeney and violence towards women and girls is SYSTEMIC! Tell the BBC to report that! This is more PeKKKa BS to try and Attack black people to cover up peKKka CRIMES!
