  1. There’s way to many of our women and girls being rsped..matter of fact one rape is too many.Why set such a precedent .As a people we generally look to our leaders for guidance and answers.
    This issue of widespread tape of women and underage girls is being slighted by those in authority..if that’s indeed the case, why?
    Isn’t it counter productive when as a nation we’re trying to promote tourism and the hotel industry on one hand and the other hand the rapeing of our women and underage girls seems to be trivialized and is swept under the carpet?
