In Kenya gender based violence is common mostly against women and in many cases go unreported especially rape because of the stigma this causes. In  instances when reported it is sometime resolved traditionally with the father of the girl being paid so that matter does not proceed to court as the girl in most cases a minor being forced to withdraw the complain. The slow court process also frustrate efforts to seek legal redress since the case can drag on for a year! Few cases of violence again men are now being reported especially extreme cases of wives chopping off genitals of their husbands. this tend to attract sensational  media attention and cases against the women tend to be attended to faster

More organizations dealing with gender violence need to come up to ensure young female victims of GBV are not coerced to withdraw cases and deterrent punishment meted out to offender, with the media support in disseminating such efforts .
