  1. The only way this crime will stop is if men convicted of rape are castrated. Stop throwing them in jail just castrate and let them go.

    • @Linda, it’s very very very hard to control an erection, extremely hard. Especially working at Girls secondary school, it’s hard.
      Girls are naive, at 15 they view themselves mature. why did she go to office alone?
      Putting these guys in prison for 15 years is too much punishment.
      6 months at Chaimama’s psychiatrist can do them a great change.

    • These days parents don’t beat a shiit out of these girls. They call victim police on their parents.
      When it’s painful then that’s when they cry.
      Am not supporting chikkala coki no no no. Am saying ba fikkka learn to control erections, just train to. It’s not easy but we learn in MBA too. In presentations classes. Don’t get an erection during meetings.

    • @Nostradamus 1:1; I remember you supporting a UPND rapi$t who committed suicide in Kitwe after the girl told her parents. You blamed the girl to the point of saying maybe she wore tight clothes. Your comments today just made me lose respect for you as a human being. I hope to God you don’t have kids male or female because with a father like you, you may end up [email protected] your beautiful girl children.
      One doesn’t commit [email protected] because there are pretty girls in the world, one commits [email protected] because he is a rapi$t. Period!

  2. Cook how do u call a young girl to the kitchen to defile her? Don’t you know that you can infect or impregnate her? Parents send their children to school to learn. Girls, be careful not to find yourselves alone in comprising situations. Identify any danger as quickly as you can.

  3. Bail? The guy will just cross the Luapula River into the DRC where naturally he’s got plenty of kith and kin. Keep him under lock and key. We send our children to that school for serious studies not for what he did to this young girl.
