A four-year-old girl who was kidnapped and rɑpǝd in Mutoko, Zimbabwe, is still in intensive care three months after the horrific ordeal.
The child was abducted on her way home from school and allegedly targeted for ritual purposes by her attackers, Pedo Samu and Godfrey Gatsi. Both suspects have been arrested, and investigations are ongoing.
The victim’s family is seeking help from well-wishers to support her hospitalization and are traumatised by the condition of their child. The National police spokesperson has confirmed that the victim was ƨǝxuɑlly abused, and her attackers allegedly confessed to intending to kill her for ritual purposes after being promised US$1 500 by one of the suspects.
The family is hoping for their child’s speedy recovery and safe return home.
“We don’t know what to do anymore, our child is suffering and has been in the ICU since April. We are seeking help from well-wishers to help our child in hospital. All we want is our child to come back home,” said the girl’s father.
This harrowing incident is a stark reminder of the dangers faced by children in Zimbabwe and the need for increased vigilance to protect them from harm. Hopefully, justice will be served, and the little girl will make a full recovery.
