My Daughter Was Molested At All Souls Mission School

A woman claims that authorities at All Souls Mission school are refusing to help her get justice after her daughter was molested by fellow pupils at the school.

In an audio, the frustrated mom states that the school is protecting the perpetrators instead of the victim.

She laments how her daughter is traumatized and is unwilling to come out of her room in fear of the molesters.

According to her, All Souls Mission authorities are not assisting her to get to the bottom of the matter, hence, decided to transfer from the school.

A sex offenders’ register is also being considered.

Cabinet has approved amendments to the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act to introduce stiff penalties for perpetrators of sexual violence.

Rapists will be sentenced to life imprisonment or “any definite period of imprisonment of not less than 15 years”.

Presently, the criminal code does not provide for a mandatory sentence for rape or aggravated indecent assault, which is defined as the sexual penetration of a victim, including men, without consent.

Official data shows an average 22 women filed rape cases daily between January 2020 and December 2021.

Police also claim more than 16 000 cases of rape were reported in the two years to December 2021, with 7 377 and 8 715 women reporting in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

The Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act considers performing sexual or anal intercourse with a female person without her consent as rape.
