    And what shocks me is that why despite the many arrests and convictions of the perpetrators the numbers keep on rising?let’s castrate those burgers or chop off their katundus completely to serve as a deterrent measure,am sick of this.

      What shocks me is that this is happening in the so called christian nation. Christianity is not by proclaimation. This country is a devils paradise.

      The issue at hand here is about child abuse and its human tights commssiont seem to have taken away the responsibilities of either a parent or guardian. Even at school ,teachers are also parents to pupils but are reported to be violeting or abusing our children.Am not talking of sexally,but administratively .Thus the encrease of such misbehaving to our children

    Let’s tighten up our belts. Law is too soft at the expense of poor helpless weak boys and girls. Cut them they will stop. Imagine if it were your child.

    With the escalation of crime in the country,our communities needs to be highly sensitised;however, the perpetrators must be punished in such a way that the would be offenders would think twice before doing such vices.Let us be a christian driven country.
