INFORMATION A LA UNE DANS LE QUARTIER PANZI, VILLE DE BUKAVU, COMMUNE D'IBANDA, PROVINCE DU SUD-KIVU EN R.D.CONGO

Une information qui est à la une dans le quartier PANZI depuis deux jours, un papa a engrossé sa fille de 14 ans quelque chose qui est impossible mais vraie : Selon la jeune fille, son papa l’avait dit un jour qu’il va lui montrer comment on consomme des relations charnelles avec son mari pour prévenir les difficultés lors de son mariage, la fille a accepter sans aucune discussion.
Un jour alors la maman était malade et interner dans un hôpital de la place et la fille étudiait dans l’après-midi car sa maman avait un enfant de 2 ans et c’est la victime qui avait la charge de gardait cet enfant dans l’avant-midi pendant ses frères et ses sœurs partent à l’école.
Pour votre information, cette famille et composée de 12 enfants, la victime est le sixième et la quatrième fille de sa famille. Le papa avait eu des occasions de faire tout ce qu’il voulait à sa fille, quelque jour après la maman été à la maison pour des repos médicaux car elle est vendeuse de la farine de manioc dans le marché Kamagema/Panzi. Trois moi après la maman a remarquée que la fille a déjà une grossesse ! La maman a demander à sa fille qui est responsable de cette grossesse, la fille a résister de dévoiler son secret ; la maman a insister en intimidant sa fille pour qu’elle dénonce le responsable de la grossesse. Deux jours après, la fille a appelé sa maman en disant que c’est papa qui est le responsable de cette grossesse ! La maman a perdue la connaissance après récupération, la maman a inviter tous le membre de la famille y compris son père pour reposer la question à la fille ; et cette dernière a citer son papa comme le responsable de cette grossesse ! D’après nos sources, la maman est à l’hôpital car elle a perdue la connaissance ; Le papa est tranquille chez lui…
Le débat est ouvert pour tout chercheur et personne qui veulent en savoir plus.
QUESTION :
-La fille va considérer le papa comme son père ? Ou comme son mari ?
-La fille va appelée sa mère qui ?
-L’enfant qui naîtra sera considérer comment vis-à-vis d’autres enfants qui sont dans cette maison, famille et quartier ? MERCI

A story that has been front-page news in the Panzi neighborhood for two days: a dad impregnated his 14-year-old daughter, impossible but true: According to the young girl, her dad told her one day that he was going to show her how to consummate carnal relations with her husband to prevent difficulties during her marriage, and the girl accepted without discussion.

Then one day, the mom was sick and in the hospital and the girl was studying in the afternoon, because her mom had a 2-year-old child and the victim was the one in charge of watching the child in the morning while her brothers and sisters were at school.

For your information, this family consists of 12 children; the victim is the sixth, and the fourth daughter in her family. The father had multiple occasions to do what he wanted to his daughter. Several days later the mom returned home for bed rest, as she was a manioc flour vendor in the Kamagema/Panzi market. Three months later, the mother noticed that her daughter was already pregnant! The mother asked her daughter who was responsible for her condition; the girl resisted telling her her secret; the mom insisted, bullying her daughter into denouncing the man responsible for the pregnancy. Two days later, the girl called her mom in, saying that is was Dad who was responsible for this pregnancy. The mother lost consciousness. After recuperating, she asked every member of the family, including her father, to ask the girl the same question, and this girl named her father as the person at fault for this pregnancy. According to our sources, the mom is in hospital because she passed out; the dad is still happily living at home…

The debate is open for anyone seeking more information.

QUESTION:
--Is the girl going to consider her dad as her father? Or as her husband?
--What is the girl going to call her mother?
--Will the child when it’s born be considered as equal to the other children in the home, family and neighborhood?

THANK YOU

remerciement

Merci pour votre information, je suis de Panzi et ce que je sait sur çette info et que cette fille engrossé et l'enfant adoptive de ce papa; la maman avait cet enfant avant de se marié à cet homme et cet homme prénait cet enfant en charge, donc ce papa n'est pas le père propre de cette fille.

Chère Ariane,

Merci d’avoir écrit ce reportage pour notre communauté. C’est une histoire triste et traumatisante. Mais il faut révéler ces actes au monde, pour qu’on y mette fin. Merci pour ton courage et ta continuation de ton journal.

A bientôt,
