And before that there more (remember Rwanda and surround area – 4 million dead). This is the biggest conflict since WWII. Why don’t you know about it, really know about it? Cause “civilization” stands for morals only when there’s money to be made. Think of the outcry against Iran last month when just one women was going to be executed. I feel for her, don’t say i don’t…but get the point too!
But back to central Africa where the one thing as big as death is giant rape:
‘One 15-year-old is drumming as hard as she can. Her experiences exemplify this complex war raging against women. She was abducted by 10 rebels from the Interahamwe group accused of carrying out the genocide in neighbouring Rwanda. They kept her for about a year as a sex slave.
”They would rape me in turns. It got to a point where I did not feel pain.”
They fed her when they wished and gave her water from their gumboots to drink. She soon became pregnant. The rebels said she would be set free once she had given birth.
”One day they tied me to a tree and tried to pull the baby out. The blood… it just kept flowing.”
She says she can no longer feel pain and relates all this in a detached manner – cold and emotionless – and then ties a colourful wraparound around her waist and walks away.’
