Joseph Musuguri

A study on the capacity of community members in combating Gender-Based Violence crime was carried out in 2013, a case of Kibaha Township. Whereby, two Wards were involved as specific case study namely Picha ya Ndege and Tumbi Wards. The general objective was to investigate the capacity of community members in combating Gender-Based Violence crime. The study employed descriptive research design to survey the study area, sources of data collection were primary and secondary in nature within which tool for data collection were, Key informants interview and questionnaire. It has been found that the capacity of community members in combating gender-based violence crime is poor. The study recommends that the government should formulate community policing policy to be used as a working tool in combating gender-based violence crime by empowering the lager community to use their local techniques to find solutions for local crime related issues. This will be achieved by providing special training to volunteers in Neighbourhood Watch Groups.
