There are a lot of relatives and family members that know who committed the rape cases but they choose to be quiet for one reason or the other. Most of these cases are committed by close family members. Therefore, the government needs to make some of these changes:
1.Punish family members that refuse to speak up not unless it can be proven that they were threatened.
2. Punish both offender and siblings that choose to hide their own relative from facing justice.
3. Ban family members that would be considered a threat to other relatives from attending court proceedings and holding them with reasonable cause to perform harm on their own relatives.
If these are performed, then the rape cases will go down. They have to go down as they have been significantly on the rise. Many are suffering and others are as brazen as to post their deeds online such as had been done by a certain chief in the North of Kenya.
“You can prevent rape by reporting your own relatives to the police”.Henry’s Care Initiative
We can fight rape and create a safer society for the girls who have been forced out of school by the COVID-19. Let us not forget the boys who also get sodomized by the relatives just as girls. The boy child should not be neglected and deserves as much care too.
Keep your children safe. Always.
