The girl protesters say they want the government to take a step in dealing with issues of gender-based violence, saying enough has not been done.

In their petition, they are demanding that perpetrators of rape should face stiffer punishments to deter would-be offenders, among others.

They are also demanding protection of girls so as to prevent issues of rape and defilement in the country.

The demonstrations were led by Malawi Girls Guides Association (Magga).
