|CGE pays homage and respect to the fathers|
The Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) wishes to extend its sincere appreciation to the fathers of our society as they celebrate fathers’ day on Sunday. The Commission wishes to salute the fathers who are involved in the raising of the children and particularly those who are on their own. For those fathers raising their children on their own, this is testimony to the fact that fathers also do care about the future of their children. Fathers’ Day has an important celebratory significance, as it reminds us of the role that fatherhood plays in the upbringing of children. This is therefore an opportune moment to encourage all fathers to be proud of their role and status in their households.
CGE also pays homage and respect to all responsible fathers who assist their spouses, partners and girlfriend in household chores, including caring for their children. It is also critical that fathers boldly pronounce that the scourge of gender-based violence (GBV), sexual harassment, rape etc cannot continue to take place in their name.
Therefore on this year’s occasion of Fathers’ Day, the CGE pays tribute to all fathers in the country.
