Rape Cases Is Criminal Offences

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kisumu, Kenya
Map of RAPE CASES IS CRIMINAL OFFENCES WILL KENYA REALLY BE AMONG the developed nations in vision 2030? Kenya is one of the developing countries but you will find that even if education is one of the things that contribute to it's development , many people do not benefit from education since you find that most of the people abuse this privilege that they have. This is where you find most [people you find have no sense to differentiate between what is good or bad. I am very much touched when things that happen go against human rights. For instance rape cases are are nowadays rampant in this country making the matter worse most people impregnate even mad people in the markets. How do they expect this innocent people to go about their life and take care of children. If this doesn't stop, the country not only will remain in the one of the poor but also get curses from God.
