Government has expressed concern over an increase in cases of child abuse saying there is need for a multi stakeholder approach targeting the root cause of child abuse in the country.

Responding to questions during Star FM’s News and Current Affairs Program Muriro on Monday last night, Women Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Minister Sithembiso Nyoni said perpetrators will not be spared jail time.

This comes as Zimbabwe is marking 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, at a time there is an increase in cases of child sexual abuse.
