    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Cases of domestic violence are on the increase in Zimbabwe regardless the existence of anti domestic violence laws. Not much has been done to establish why the existing laws in Zimbabwe are failing to reduce or stop Domestic Violence. Some of the factors for increased cases of Domestic Violence in Zimbabwe include amongst others, total disregard of the African Traditional culture and practises, poverty and economic hardships, increase in awareness of the law, non coverage of remote areas during anti domestic violence campaigns, limitations in the enforcement of the law, natural characteristics of perpetrators, challenges faced by organisations who deal with domestic violence cases, corruption, alcohol and drug abuse and infidelity. A qualitative research was conducted in Highlands, Dema and Chitungwiza Suburbs. What boggles the researcher&amp;rsquo;s mind is the non intervention in domestic violence by members of the society. Domestic violence is manmade and so why does it continue unstopped since it is hating and sometimes ending lives of innocent people. The research recommends the inclusion and use of the African Traditional cultural practises in solving cases of domestic violence. It is also recommended that the anti domestic violence laws be made restorative in nature, catering for both the healing of the victim and the rehabilitation of the perpetrator. It is also recommended that there should be a zero tolerance to domestic violence amongst Zimbabweans and that everyone should play his or her role to fight domestic violence.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
