GIRL’S DREAM SHATTERED BY HER OWN DAD!
Defilement has become one of the news headlines in our local news to day. Almost everyday news of a girl defiled, as well as impregnated by her own blood relatives is becoming unbearable.
Yesterday as I was listening to the main news on our local broadcasting news, I was shocked to hear of a father who defiled his own daughter. After been defiled, the girl became paralyzed and is admitted in hospital. The father of the girl has not yet been arrested. Commenting on the same matter, Deputy Minister of community, youth and child development demanded that the father be brought to book.
Although this is not the first time for me to hear of a girl defiled, it was shocking because this girl’s future is undetermined. Assuming this beautiful girl never recovers from her paralysis, then the life of this girl is wasted and her dreams shattered. Few months ago, another young girl was raped and impregnated by her own father. This and many more defilement cases are hinting our nation. Although the government is playing an important role in ensuring that these people are arrested, the situation is alarming.
Fathers, brothers and uncles are now a threat to the young girls whom they are supposed to be protecting.
