Over the past weeks, the incessant reports and incidents of rape has been on the increase. I read a pathetic story recently about a five year old being raped by a forty-five year old man. Pls help me ask, what is in the body of a five year old girl? No greater justice would be as fair than the cutting of the penis of any man convicted of rape. Many men as a defence, would name the devil as the instigator and one that coerced them to doing the crime. Na the devil close your ears to that girl's plea and cries?
Many women have been known to have a bull's eye on their body saying "I'm for the taking". Their clothing or lack of it acts like a calling card to any would-be rapist. In as much as I tell ladies to dress decently cos of these insane people, that doesn't make them marked to be raped? No woman wants to be raped. The mental trauma is not even wished on my worst enemy.
I went to a birthday party for a six year old and I was shocked at what I saw. Little girls were wearing skimpy skirts that would make a priest blush. I overheard a girl singing the chorus to a Wizkid's song,"...I want your body sleeping in my bed". Haba!! what body kwa!! Please, paedophiles exist, parents should be mindful of the clothes they put on their kids. These maniacs feeds their dirty minds on those things.
Yes, times have changed and children ain't babies anymore. Is that enough reason for them to be raped? Yes their clothes and "swag" bespoke of maturity, but under those linen, an innocent child resides, scared, fragile and dependent on us as adults to protect, guide and guard them. When we do the opposite, how do we want them to trust us? Its time we take our kids as what they are, kids. Let's protect them, let rape and rapist pay dearly for crimes against not only the child, but against children and humanity. Thank God for the bill about to the passed, let these rapists be punished dearly. I have said my mind.
