Today, the Ministry of Women Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MWACSMED) held its first workshop to unpack the Public Service Sexual Harassment Policy 2022.

The policy is a brainchild of the PSC strategic plan (2021-23) which was approved by government early this year and seek to create a public service workplace environment that is free from sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse and improve ambience at work stations.

In his welcoming remarks, Permanent Secretary, Mr Moses Mhike applauded the initiative which he said is evident of government’s effort to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace and ensure maximum work productivity to achieve efficient and effective service delivery.

“This is an important sensitisation event as it helps to shed more light among working colleagues. At times we commit an offence because of ignorance. Let us all go through the policy thoroughly because under the Roman law, ignorance has no defence. Let us create a conducive environment for all genders,” he said.

In most cases, sexual harassment also known as sexual violence has caused the victims to lose their jobs, suffer physical and emotional pain, loss of income and various other negative consequences
