Your comment

Hello Busayo,
thank you for your comment. If there are any stories you want covered feel free to send them for the newpaper.

I have been working on these stories since 2008. The one in the article is true and there is so much more . The guilty parties are related to a police officer and even though they have 5 long police files on them , they are enver charged.
they harrass anyone who reports them.

Thank you for your words of encouragement is not free to comment and send stories and events. WORLD PULSE inspire us all much we

Congratulations

Hello Diane,

Congratulations on your new newspaper. While I was sad to read the story it contained, it was still an important story that needs to be told. Good luck with putting out future editions and shining the light on stories others might not want to tell.

The dignity of others

Hello Kristina, this story started for me in 2007 , it is sad but true and the fact that this has not been covered is also sad.
This is not an uncommon story and I hope that somehow a bigger netowrk will cover it like 5th estate or some other type of media.
thank you for your comment. This story is for the dignity of others

Being brave

Hello Diane,

Congratulations on having the courage to use your words and time and energy to make public a story that people would prefer not to get publicity. Have you thought of sending it to other news sources in your area and/or making it available on an online site?

good luck with what you're doing.

Best wishes,

Fiona

Thank You!

Hello Dear!
What a bold piece!
You know, the majority of women dare not report cases of violence and abuse on them; dare not express themselves in decision-making venues except when there is a misunderstanding... This keeps them ever diturbed and confused. Yet there are a few who can cry out 'NO to violence perpetrated either by the State oe Individuals on others'. You are one of the beautiful women already born to 'Cry the Beloved country'.
We hope to add spice to your paper in future editions.
