“Our members the Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) are currently working with the Ministry of Community Development, Department of Social Welfare to support Ms Solochi with counselling,” she added.

“The women’s movement will keenly follow this matter to its logical conclusion,” she said.

In her video, Solochi had alleged that she was sexually abused by her uncle and cousins.
