Men Who Stripped A Harare Woman For Wearing A Mini Skirt Are Arrested
Few days back, a video of a woman who was stripped because she was wearing a mini skirt went viral around the world, it was some group of touts, drivers and conductors who had committed this act, some people were glad of this jungle justice but some insisted that it was uncalled for…
This had forced the police to identify these men and are appealing for her to come forward and press charges.
Police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi said
"We want to thank the public for their assistance in this case and we are hoping to finalise the matter anytime if the woman comes forward," he said.
He appealed to commuter omnibus owners not to employ touts for the safety of the public.
Women organisations on Friday condemned the harassment of the young woman by the touts and urged the police to immediately arrest the criminals. They also called for the removal of touts from all commuter omnibus ranks.
Women Coalition board member Ms Nyaradzo Mashayamombe described the incident as barbaric.
"It might appear as an act directed at one woman, but its effect is to damage our children psychologically, dehumanise women and present us as a lawless nation," she said.
"As women of Zimbabwe, we will not stand by and watch women being harassed and humiliated," she said.
"Real men do not violate women's rights! Those who are not real men and harass women like this belong to the Department of Prisons and Correctional Services," she said.
SAfAIDS communications director Ms Tariro Makanga said "Enough is enough. This is our last time to talk as women. Now we want action," she said.
"Even if a woman is wearing next to nothing, no man has the moral ground to even lay a finger on her," posted one irate woman.
"Stripping a woman is an act of cowardice but women should also consider their dress code when at public places,"
