Nampol Spokesperson Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi has advised men who have been raped by the same gender or women to not suffer in silence but to open a case whenever necessary.

Speaking to The Villager, Shikwambi said that there are people who have fallen victim to rape but are not comfortable enough to come forward.

“We get reports on male being raped but not so often, I remember early this year, a man was raped by a woman. It is not something new but I repeat, everyone has the right to liberty,” she said.

She further told this publication that the police will continue protecting those who are violated against their will.

She also emphasised that it is never too late to open a case against any form of rape that might have taken place.
