La guerre en Afrique rhîme avec violences aux Femmes!!!!!!!

imagesfemmes.jpg

Aujourd'hui, j'ai traitée un sujet émouvant dans ma rédaction. J'ai eu la chance d’interviewer une fille de 19 ans victime de l'occupation des terroristes dans mon pays. Vous vous rappelez que le nord du Mali avait été occupé par des islamistes, des terroristes pendant 2012. Ces individus sans foi ni loi, ont terrorisé la population, violés les femmes, les torturées. Aujourd'hui, j'ai discutée avec une jeune femme victime. Pendant l'occupation, elle a été forcée a épouser un de ces brigands. Son histoire est la suivante: ''Un jour en partant au marché, j'ai eu la malchance de croise un de ces hommes de terreurs, armé, il m'a demandé où est ce que je vais, il est interdit qu'une femme sorte de la maison. Je ne lui ai pas répondu, je suis retournée à la maison. Entre temps, il m'a suivi sans que je ne le sache. Quelques minutes après mon arrivé à la maison, il est arrivé armé, demande à ma mère ou est mon père. Ma mère lui a dit que mon père est sorti. Il pointa l'arme sur ma mère et il dit je veux épouser ta fille, ma mère rétorqua, qu'il n'en est pas question. Il jette 50 000 FCFA sur ma maman, il me prend par la main et me traîna jusqu'à sa voiture. Je criais, ma mère aussi, mais, il m'a emmenée comme ça. La nuit, c'est 4 hommes qui me violaient. Je passe mes journées enfermés dans une maison et ça pendant 4 mois. Lorsqu'ils sont été chassés de la ville, c'est en ce moment que j'ai eu un lueur d'espoir. Aujourd’hui, ce qui m’angoisse et me fait souffrir c'est le jugement de la population, je suis stigmatisée indexée comme si j'avais voulu.''Fin de l'histoire

Today I treated a moving subject in my writing. I had the chance to interview a 19 year old girl who is a victim of terrorists in my country. Today I talked with a young lady who is a victim. During the occupation she was forced to marry one of the robbers. Her story is as the following: "One day, starting at the market, I had the misfortune to cross one of those men of terror, armed, he asked me where am I going, he prevents a woman who goes out of her house. I didn't answer him, I returned back home. He followed me without me knowing that. After few minutes of returning back home, he also arrived and asked my mom where would my dad be, my mom told him that my dad has gone out, he pointed the weapon against my mom and told her that he want to marry her daughter. My mother replied that it did not matter. He threw 50000 FCFA to my mom and took me by the hand and dragged me to his car. I kept screaming and my mom too but he took me like that. At night 4 men raped me. I spend my days closed to myself at home and that was for 4 months. When they were expelled from the city, it is at this point that I had a glimmer of hope. Today what worries me and makes me suffer is the judgment of the population. I am stigmatized indexed as if I wanted to.'' End of story

Bonjour Kiki,
C'est vraiment un sujet émouvant, bien triste, c'est le moins que l'on puisse dire. Est-ce que vous savez si cette fille a eu un suivi quelconque, surtout comme elle est stigmatisée par la population qui ne semble pas croire que c'était involontaire? Parce que cela la lui donnerait une nouvelle confiance en elle et petit à petit elle pourrait aider d'autres.

Merci d'avoir partagé...
Cdt,

Edith

Oui, elle est rejetée par la population qui pense que c'est une fille souillé. En ce moment, elle prise en charge par une association féminine locale. Vous savez, elles sont nombreuses des jeunes filles comme elles qui ont vécus le même sort au cours de cette guerre. Malheureusement les guerres en Afrique riment avec violences aux femmes.
