Give stiffer punishment to rapists

Give stiffer punishment to rapists

Dear Editor,

I would like to draw your attention to the recurring cases of defilement re­ported by the media in recent times.

For the past few weeks, I have read in different newspapers about persons being imprisoned or jailed for defile­ment.

The issue of defilement has become rampant and it is causing fear among girls between the ages of 5 – 12.

These girls being raped or defiled by men who ask for their help and later lure them into their rooms, defile them and threaten to kill them or their parents if they mention it to anyone.

The men who do this to these young girls are old enough to be their fathers or even grand­fathers and they pose nothing but danger to the lives of the young ones.

I would like to urge parents to be extra careful with people they leave their chil­dren with at home when going out.

Also, parents must ensure that they educate their children and tell them the need to open up when any man do such things to them.

I wish the appropriate authorities concerned would hand culprits of such crimes very harsh punishment to serve as a deterrent to others.

With that in mind, it will make the act unattractive.
