Parkop: Arrest the sick person who raped 7-year-old girl

Let us put pressure on police to investigate and arrest this sick person who committed this despicable crime but let's not stop there. 

NCD Governor, Powes Parkop
The recent news about a 7 year old girl being raped and killed is the result of all of us not doing much to stand up against violence generally and especially gender base violence and violence against women and girls in particular in our country. 
By our indifference or poor response to this outrageous behavior and trend, we have are allowing and making space for this disgusting behavoiur to grow and become a norm in our society. We have witnessed women being tortured on accusation of sorcery. We have witnessed and tolerated young woman being burnt alive also on allegation of sorcery and legs being chopped off on allegation of extra martial affairs. This despicable act of rape and murder of a seven year old girl is too much. 
We must act and stand up. We must do more. We are all at risk. Not just risking our physical safety but also our sanity if we do not ACT now. Let us put pressure on police to investigate and arrest this sick person who committed this despicable crime but let’s not stop there. We need the strategy to counter gender base violence and violence generally to be rolled out all across the country. We need to take action  NOW. Everyone! I will send these images to the Minister and Commissioner for police but let us roll out the strategy before its too late!
In POM I will never allow such atrocity to happen to our women and girls. Hold me to this. I will work with police to ensure enforcement is tighter. I will be announcing some of our initiative to deal with gender based violence and violence generally tomorrow when I present our strategic plan 2017-2022 for the City tomorrow to our Executive Management and line Managers in the City Hall. This has to stop NOW!

    My heartfelt for the innocent little 7 years old girl. I pray by God’s will the ‘sick person’ face the full force of His (God’s) ‘weep’! Even the ‘sick person’ would regret that it had not happened. RIP daughter!
