What a Tragedy!

My heart goes out to this sister soldier who has had to endure the wrath of a sick man, who needs to be in a mental hospital. It is obvious he is mentally ill and it is a shame it took this incident for it to become known. Why is she rotting and not getting proper medical attention. Have you followed up with her?

Welcome

Hello Dr Edonna,
Thank you for reading my journal, I have not followed up this particular story but every other day there is such a shocking story in the media: rape, defilement, violence etc. The awareness is created but the response is still a challenge.
Otherwise we welcome you to join the Uganda Pulse group on http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/75117
