St Catherine MP, and Gender Affairs Minister Olivia Grange has joined in condemning the gruesome act of violence meted out to an 81 year old woman and her two young granddaughters on Sunday.

Minister Grange says she’s asked the Bureau of Gender Affairs to visit the community and provide support.

She says the incident highlights the need for Parliamentarians to move expeditiously to implement the law to eliminate violence against women and girls. 

She’s urging Jamaicans not to retreat or surrender to criminals.
