December 10 2015 - “On the way to N. I met a man standing alone in a tree plantation. He greeted me with a Swahili slogan “Mambo?” I answered “Poa”. He asked “Can you come with me so that I escort you to your home?” I agreed and we started to walk. Suddenly, he took out a knife and requested me to put off my clothes and lay down on the ground. I started to cry. He started to beat me with a stick, and forcing me to take my clothes off. He kicked me, I felt down and he started to rape me. He warned me not to tell it to anyone - he said that if I tell this to people he will kill me and chop my body into pieces. Then I got up and walked home. When I arrived at home, my aunt asked me why I delayed at the shop. I told her that the shop was closed. Although I had terrible pains, I didn’t say anything.” (Girl, then 10 years old in Primary School).
