Rape Obscene

Pastor Reveals How She Was Raped For Three Days

Pastor Cecilia who is currently living in Uganda, has shared her story on Gender Based Violence with BBC.

She said, "I was raped at the age of 17 by a neighbor. For three days I did not eat or drink until I was saved.''

Cecilia Muthoni Ssewagaba is now a preacher and often uses the altar to inspire the community and especially the girl child.

She continued saying, "It's as if my mother didn't believe I was abducted and raped by our neighbor when she sent me to the shop to buy sugar… she thought I escaped on my own as usual for girls my age",

How has his life journey been since the incident in his village? Is he married? How does society view an abused girl child?

However, it's true that the lady got married later in life. She however got divorced after first marriage but she did not give up on love. She met her Ugandan husband.

So many people are going through a difficult time but try to hide.
