According to Drum, Bentels’s app comes as the country commemorates the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence.
“GBV is a big problem in our country, and this is a way of trying to help get help for victims and get the perpetrators behind bars where they belong because the authorities will be in possession of the evidence,” the report quoted Bentele as saying.
