One day culture will not be enough of an excuse to commit crime against young girls, soon I hope.
Sharing her story, Memory Banda, a young woman from Malawi who managed to repel the terrible culture of ‘sexual cleansing’ of young girls in her community by an ‘hyena’ – an elderly man wandering from village to village getting paid by the victims’ community to violate girls as young as 11 years old in the name of culture. Some of this girls get pregnant as a result of the first time cleansing.
Ms. Banda’s own little sister got pregnant by the ‘hyena’ man at 11 years old, at sixteen she already had 2 husbands and three children.
Child bride, I have heard about plenty of time but a man coming round to violate young girls with parents and community’s permission – this is so sickening.
Not sure about the ‘hyena the service man’ but Nigeria definitely has child bride issue in common with Malawi and I hope enough girls can watch this and realise they do have a choice to speak up.
