Horrible.They have all fled,and will get away with rape,and assault.Many more will suffer these grim crimes before justice and freedom restored.

rexon

This 13 year old girl will really be left traumatised maybe for a significant part of her life. I hope she will be strong enough to go over this. I am really traumatised myself after reading such a horrible story. This story is really pathetic. How can people treat a 13 year old like that? Reaping her from left to right, family and rapist refusing and abandoning the little girl helpless. We really have to educate our society on the effect of certain crimes as the origins might go down to a lack of education and respect to our judicial system.

felix

This is a very serious crime that need be investigated by the State and all offenders brought to book.
This Girl need Rehab and should not just be left out like this.

Denzy E. A/ Atlanta, Georgia

Cameroon is supposedly a country governed by law. We can joke around with politics but the people in power should be serious in issues dealing with heinous crimes like this. Police and judicial authorities always play no role when incidents like this are reported. Is Cameroon turning into the Democratic Republic of Congo where rapists go without punishment? It will not be too long when we will watch documentaries on CNN about these outrageous crimes happening in “Our Fatherland.” Please, Mr. Provincial Chief of Police, Mr. Commissioner of Buea police, go behind these fools so that others can learn a lesson. Contact the post and they can give you the identity of these individuals. They are still around Buea. Her aunt also has to face some charges. Take her to her parents if you can’t keep her anymore or take her to the village if her parents are death. May God bless this poor girl’s heart.

PATHETIC

PATHETIC INDEED FOR THIS YOUNG GIRL
PATHETIC FOR REPORTING THAT KNOWS NO INVESTIGATION
PATHETIC THAT THIS REPORT EXPOSES THE DEGREE TO WHICH CAMEROONIANS SHUN, MISTUST AND MAYBE DONT EVEN KNOW THE LAW.

I THOUGHT THE REPORT WOULD SAY "MANYULO" INFORMED THE POLICE WHO RANSACKED THE MILE 16 AREA BUT FOUND NOBODY.

ABSENCE OF OFFICIAL INVOLVEMENT IN THE MATTER MAKES THIS STORY APPEAR AS MADE UP(EVEN THOUGH IT COULD BE TRUE)

WHY WOULD THE JOURNALIST BE SO HASTY ABOUT GOING TO PRESS WITH HIS "STORY" WITHOUT EVEN INTERVIEWING THE GIRL'S AUNT?

HE SHOULDNT SAY HE DOESNT KNOW THE AUNT'S PLACE BECAUSE THE SAME ROLAND WHO TOOK HER BACK TO THE AUNT COULD HAVE TAKEN HIM THERE TO INVESTIGATE MORE.

YOUR REPORT GIVES THE AUNT THE IMAGE OF MONSTRESS WITHOUT SEEKING TO GIVE US HER POINT OF VIEW.

WE DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE SHE BECAME PREGNAT...WAS SHE LIVING WITH HER AUNT??AND RETURNED WHEN PREGNAT??WAS SHE A PUPIL IN SOME PRIMARY/SECONDARY SCHOOL??

BOY THIS IS JOURNALISM, NOT A NOVELLA, AND YOU DONT REPORT A STORY IN MEDIAS RES..

INVESTIGATE FURTHER
COME OUT WITH A COMPREHENSIVE REPORT WHICH CAN MAKE THE GIRL'S CASE AGAINST WHOEVER WAS INVOLVED VALID BEFORE ANY COURT..

RAPING IS A CRIME...MY SYMPATHIES TO YOU, DEAR LITTLE GIRL...

NEXT TIME, YOU GOTTA WATCH OUT FOR THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE WITH..

YOU LIKED IT..AND IF THIS TRAGEDY DIDNT HAPPEN, YOU WOULD HAVE CONTINUED LIKING IT..

WHAT A GENERATION!!!!!!

Fon

This story gives the world the impression that Cameroon have reached the abyss of lawlessness.That anybody can do what ever and goes away with it.
Even if no formal report has been made to the security,it will be unbelievable that the story has been published by the Post,and the commissioner will not take upon himself as a challenge to investigate the matter.
I also hope that in the days ahead, we will read that human rights groups have taken upon themself to investigate this bestiality.
No matter what this little girl has done to the aunt; since we don´t yet have her own story, I think she is wicked because if this girl was the daughter, she would not have treated her as such

Ma Mary

This is a clear invitation to jungle justice. With no relief from the colonial officials who should be helping seek justice, the society has no choice than to hunt down and destroy the perpetrators of this act.

Njei M. Timah

Thanks to The Post for bringing some of these sordid things to light. Your job is not finished until you follow the police to ensure that they act against those that abused the child.

I must say I am completely shocked at the version of the Mirabel incident as versioned by the Post. I completely accept with katakata that the journalist was somuch in a hurry to have his story on Caption, rather than investigating and giving the right information to the Public. I am the Roland whoose name appears on the Pages as having paid the Bills. Mirabel is 16 and not 13years old. Besides her Auntie never threw her out of the house. I will throw more footlight on the entire story tomorrow..

katakata

GOOD JOB ROLAND

SOMETIMES WHEN WE CONTRIBUTE HERE, OUR CRITICISMS ARE NOT TAKEN NICELY.

WHEN A SITUATION NEEDS REMEDYING, THEN WE SHOULD FIX IT UP WELL RATHER THAN PATCH IT.

ROLAND YOU HOLD THE KEYS TO THE TRUTH SURROUNDING THE MIRABEL STORY.

BE CERTAIN HER AUNT WILL BE VERY PLEASED TO COOPERATE WITH YOU AND GIVE YOU THE WHOLE STORY....
AND WHEN YOU GIVE US THE FULL VERSION, THEN AM SURE THE REPORTER :ELVIS TAH WILL LEARN FROM YOU WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A COMPLETE REPORTER.

WE ARE PATIEMTLY AWAITING THE RESULTS OF YOUR INVESTIGATION, AND NOT DISTORTED VERSIONS OF A STORY TO MAKE IT APPEAR MORE SYMPATHETIC THAN IT SHOULD...I BEGIN TO QUESTION IF SHE WAS ACTUALLY RAPED...OR IF IT WAS MUTUAL CONSENT.

GIVE US THE FEEDBACKS ROLAND...

katakata

" since we don´t yet have her own story, I think she is wicked because if this girl was the daughter, she would not have treated her as such.." (FON)


FON,
I THINK YOU WERE A BIT HASTY JUST LIKE THE JOURNALIST TO REACH THE CONCLUSION QUOTED FROM YOUR CONTRIBUTION ABOVE.

THE INTERNET IS A POWERFUL COMMUNICATION TOOL, YET IF WE JUDT BELIEVE EVERYTHING WE READ, THEN WE BECOME ROBOTS AND SLAVES TO THE TECHNOLOGY AT OUR DISPOSAL.

ALWAYS HAVE A QUESTIONING MIND AS YOU READ STORIES WHICH YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT...

AND REMEMBER...EVEN THE MOST RESPECTED MEDIA HOUSES COME BACK TO APOLOGIZE OVER A NEWS ITEM AIRED OVER THEIR WAVES...

SO BE WATCHFUL HOW YOU APPORTION BLAME...

LETS WAIT AND GET THAT VERSION FROM THE AUNT.

FINALLY SILENCE FROM HER AUNT, WHO MIGHT NOT BE A VISITOR TO THIS FORUM DOS NOT MEAN SHE IS "VERY WICKED"

SLEEP TIGHT

Rolandlexus

I very much accept with Katakata that the journalist for this story was more interested in having his name signed at the bottom of his story. There are several lines and information in the story that are missing, inadequate and faulty.

It was on Monday afternoon that I was informed that the "13 year old girl abortion story" had appeared in the Post. Bought a Post News Paper that evening and very disatisfied. I am the Roland, whose name appears on the News Paper has having paid the bills. I was not paying it bacause I needed to be mentioned on some News Paper, but for the sake of humanity.Putting a few things right,

- First, the little girl is not 13years but 16years old. Thus I find the caption of 13years written only to captivate the minds of reader.

- Second, the child was not driven from home by the Auntie. That is why it was very
important for the Journalist in qestion to be in contact with the Auntie of the Child before posting out such cruel remarks. I am not sure Mama Rebeca will love to hear this.


I was to Mile 16 on the 1st of February to visit my grand Mother, when I met the Mirabel incident.(Mirabel is the name of the girl.) She was sitting in a Palm wine drinking hut, when suddenly the supposed Mr Ferdinard arrived and started shouting at her to stop spreading false information about him. Thats what caught my attention, and as I moved closer to find out what the matter was, discovered several other hard to believe accounts..


- First, Mirabel claimed she had been given a drug to drink and another inserted in her vagina by Ferdinand, two months ago. The drugs, she claims was given to her to abort her one month old pregnancy. She claimed thrice she had refused to take the drug but due to pressure from Ferdinand was forced to take it. Note: She was co-living with Ferdinand during this period. Ferdinand refused the charge and claim he had only given her drugs for headache.

- Mirabel claimed the pregnancy was Betrands ( Betrand lives in mile 16 and is a neigbour to Ferdinand.) Betrand whose parents had been notified about the pregancy refused authorship. His excuse was that Mirabel had slept with almost every male in Mile 16.

Mirabel who had started vomiting by now, also said she was having severe pains in her abdomen and had been having smelling discharges over the past two weeks. Several suggestions were coming forth with several persons pointing a finger at Ferdinand and claiming he was capable of the act.
Others said, the girl was too irresponsible to point a finger at anybody. Thats when I
noticed the so called Mayulo. As much as he was concerned for the girls health, I realised he had scores to setlle with Ferdinand and so wanted him brought to shame.

- Thankfully enough the yielded to my sugesstion. As much as I suggested that the matter needs to be carried to the Police, since it involved the false usage of drugs for the intent of abortion, I was also mindful of the fact that the girls health was of immerse importance.

Thus, she was not picked at the roadside in a pool of "bleed" and carried to St Albert as the journalist wrote. My sugesstion was that since she had taken some unknown tablets, it was important she had an echography done, to be sure the Child in her womb was still alive, and that she was in good health. Ferdinand was not in support of the idea, and it only took my hard stand that I will call the Police Commisioner, before he yielded. For fear of having Ferdinand dump her somewhere, I decided to use my Car for the Hospital Trip. Mayunlo opted to go as well, as he thought Ferdinand might escape in my custody..lol After visiting three dispensaries which had no acess to Echography, we setlled for St Albert. After a series of test, it was discovered that the foetus of about four months had been affected and Mirabel
had just began to bleed. By this time her counternance had changed and she was getting weaker with need for serious and urgent medical help.

You all know the way Hospitals work with Cash deposit. Mirabels situation had gotten severe and Ferdinand who up to now, was still refusing had never given her drugs had nothing more to add to the 5.000frs he had already spend on the tests. As much as I felt the concern, desire and sympathy to reach out financially to save her life, I also realised I was a nobody who knew little or nothing about the girl. We are Cameroonians and we know ourselves. If the negative did occur, no one will beleive you were actually helping out. You could even be branded as the author of the pregnancy...lol Thats when I decided to meet the family. She gave me her aunties number wich kept singing,,, The number you trying to call is
not.....

- While allowing her in the Hospital with Ferdinand and Mayunlo I then had to drive to Tiko to check on her Aunt. Was not easy locating her, but as she said she hailed from Nkambe, a Nkambe lady finally carried me to thier house. Contrary to the stories I had heard in Mile 16, that she ran away from home because it was a "caraboat" house with no food, The house was a well build block apartment. After introducing myself I told her Auntie my mission.

_ Her Auntie at first refused to go with us, as she claimed she had no money in the house and Mirabel has been of unbearable behaviour. According to her Auntie, Cousins at home and even neighbours, Mirabel suddenly started this outside life style two years ago. Mirabel who is her grand niece has been staying with her ever since she was 5. Although not brilliant in school had always been a good girl, not untill she started meeting men around Tiko. Stopped school in Primary 5.Has been temporary out of the house for 5months before this recent incident. Shocking to note that she had been to the house three days before this
Mile 16 incident. Two boys brought her home from Muea, who sawe her looking sick. Upon
arrival at home, her cousins asked her to apologise to her Aunt, but she refused and decided to leave the house even without being driven away.

- It might interest you to know that this is not the first time Mirabel is getting involved with a bout of boys. Her Auntie with tears recounted the last incident that had her going to the Gendamarie in Tiko everyday. That was about June 2006. Mirabel left the house and was cohabitting with a boy in the interiors of the Tiko Beach area. She was only located with the help of tribesmen who are in the Army. But even as she was brought back home during that
period she was discovered pregnant. Was never easy for her to show who the father was, as according to her aunt, cousins and neighbours she had slept with atleast 15boys and didnot know who to chose. The incident caused a severe Gendarme scandal, with her Auntie recounting how the Gendarme will
run out of their bench, go outside and laugh at the fun of a girl sleeping with somany
boys and not knowing who is responsible. Finally she pointed at a guy whom her auntie
claims its because he was from a rich family. That not withstanding, because of the complexity of her undeveloped womb, age and cervix she had to do with a D and C.

-Finally I was able to have Mama Rebeca follow us to the Hospital. She Spend nights with Mirabel at the Hospital untill she was discharged. This time despite the complexity of her cervix and worsened by the fact that they were two foetus in her womb, I am happy the Lord still worked his Miracles and she came out alive. Shocking tale, Huh ? Costed me 90.000Frs
for her medical bills, but what is that compared to the satisfaction that a life was saved.

She is once more living in thier house and I am sure with her last painful and near death
ordeal she will see a need for a new lift. I might need some expert help here. I think
Katakata who has been quite interested in this page can be of help. I am thinking of a way of helping her out. But with her level of just Class 5, I am wondering what to do. She says she wants to learn Hair dressing..What you think?

-One last thing, Ferdinand, Betrand and all those who might have slept with her are all
living in Mile 16 and didnot run to anywhere. Ferdinand was in the Hospital on the First day and after that stopped coming. I have never been able to see Betrand. I learned he is an Aperentice Photographer at Maryland Photos, Molyko. I have been there twice but he was on break. Ferdinand is a clandestine driver at the Mile 17 Park. Drives the Douala line.I only wanted Mirabel fully restored to health so she herself can put the facts straight infront of the Police for justice to prevail; as much she herself facing the consequences of her actions.

Some very important facts:

- Mirabel to the best of my knowledge has always been well treated at home. She did acknowledge to me of having the best of treatment at home and yet abusing it, thus no more blames for Mama Rebeca..

- Mirabel accepted to me and the Public that she had been having sexual affairs with
Ferdinand even before she got pregnant for Betrand. Such affairs often took place in
abandoned cars in the mile 17 Motopark.

- Mirabel though in her 16, has co-lived with boys in Muea, Mile 16, Tiko, Great Soppo...

- Before the incident of the 1st of February, it had been 6 weeks since Ferdinand last saw Mirabel. The last time he saw Mirabel was when Mirabel brought a boy to his house and pleaded with him to act like his elder brother. The boy whom Mirabel says lives in Soppo, was her boyfriend who wanted to help her.

Thank You

SOME REAL GOOD JOURNALISM

ROLAND,
THANKS A LOT FOR CLARIFYING THIS MATTER. I EXPECT THE POST TO OFFICIALLY PUBLISH THIS STORY IN THEIR PAPER.


WHAT YOU HAVE JUST DONE IS VERY GREAT INDEED.
WE ALL HOPE MIRABEL HAS LEARNT HER LESSON FROM THIS LIFE-THREATENING ORDEAL SHE WENT THROUGH.

YOU ARE A KIND HEARTED PERSON, AND I DONT SEE 2 OUT OF 5 CAMEROONIANS MAKING THE SAME SACRIFICES YOU MADE , JUST TO EXPRESS YOUR RESPECT AND VALUE FOR HUMAN LIFE..INFACT, JESUS EXPRESSED SUCH LOVE AND VALUE FOR LIFE WHEN HE CAME TO DIE FOR OUR SINS.

MIRABEL OWES MANY THANKS TO YOU ...AND SHE SHOULD LOOK UP TO YOU AS THAT SENIOR BROTHER SHE NEVER HAD...DONT CUT OFF THE TIES WITH THE FAMILY..CONTINUE GIVING HER WHATEVER ENCOURAGEMENT YOU CAN, AND LET HER UNDERSTAND THAT DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL SINCE PRIMARY 5 ISNT THE END OF THE WORLD..THAT SHOULDNT MAKE HER TO HAVE A LOW ESTEEM OF HERSELF..BECAUSE AM SURE ITS A MATTER OF ESTEEMING HERSELF SO LOW BEFORE OTHERS THAT MOVES HER TO PRACTICE THESE SINS CONDEMNED BY GOD.

YOU MIGHT NOT BE A FULLY RELIGIOUS PERSON, BUT YOU HAVE A HEART FINER THAN THAT OF MANY PERSONS WHO MIGHT CLAIM TO BE RELIGIOUS.

YOUR QUESTION: WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR HER???

I DONT KNOW YOUR TRADE, BUT WHAT I KNOW IS THAT MIRABEL NEEDS A LOT OF INNER STRENGTH TO WORK AT A PLACE(E.G SALOONS) , WHERE MEN COME TO PICK UP THEIR GIRLS AFTER THEIR MAKEUP.

YOU CAN HELP HER IN ANY WAY THAT WOULD NOT TAKE HER BACK TO HER FORMER COMPANIONS AND LIFESTYLE.

WE COULD DISCUSS THIS OFF THIS PAGE AS IT WOULD BE UNFAIR IF WE HAVE TO DISCUSS THINGS THAT CONCERN HER BEFORE A PUBLIC WHOSE INTENTS WE DO NOT KNOW.

WRITE ME AT:
akata_kata@yahoo.co.uk

GIVE ME YOUR NUMBER THROUGH MY MAIL AND I SHALL CALL YOU.

WAITING TO READ YOUR MAIL

Katakata,
Your point is noted.
The post will be doing alot of damage to their paper if they don´t apologize and publish Roland´s version of the story.

Roland, it is only God that will reward you. That was really humanitarian and as someone already mentioned, there are very few who can do what you did.
God Bless you
