Yesterday 25.04.19, I was a guest on a power program on HiTv called Girls' Talk, hosted by the talented Wilson Blessing in the city of Buea, Cameroon.
We were looking at the Increase in Child Rape in our society, and we had other expert resource persons like Prof Teke of the University of Buea, and Dr Forbellah a partner with Doctors without borders. I was brought in, in different capacities, and discussed different aspects of rape which could be leading to its increase in our society regardless of all we cry against.
As a lawyer, I looked at the shortcomings of the provisions in the penal code and how undeterring they were to perpetrators. As a Psychotherapist, I looked at the life time trauma of victims/survivors. As a parent, I looked at our plight, role and responsibilities. As the founder of the Association Hope for the Abused and Battered, I used some specific cases we have addressed so far to drive home my points that there is a lot needed to be done by our collective Synergies.
You mustn't wait until your child or family member is raped before you speak up. It was a thrilling day.
