LES ABUS CONTRE LES FEMMES

Au village de EBOKO situé à 40 kilomètres de la d’uvira dans la collectivité-secteur de Tanganyika en territoire de « Fizi », un militaire en position sur le lieu, a scandalement violé une fille âgée de 14 ans, la pauvre victime se rendait à la rivière Kabumbo quand son bourreau l’a tenue à la main, tirée de force vers un buisson pour commettre cet acte de viol.
