It will now become easier to report cases of sexual violence after some victims launched a mobile app to be used in reporting and documenting cases of sexual violence in Kenya.
The android app dubbed “SV_CaseStudy” is aimed at documenting, reporting and tracking cases of sexual violence.
The application was developed by Wangu Kanja a sexual violence survivor and her foundation; WanguKanja Foundation in partnership with Survivors of Sexual Violence
The app was officially launched by Ministry of Interior Cabinet Administrative secretary Patrick Ole Ntutu.
According to Wanja, the app will go along way to make sure that victims of sexual violence access Justice in time while also working towards developing interventions.
“Victims can access the app’s portal anonymously and report cases for authorities to follow and dispense Justice” she said.
A witness of sexual violence can also access the app and report cases on behalf of a victim.
The app is available for download on google play store.
