The theme this year for International Women’s Day is ‘gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.’

In Africa, where the woman is looked down upon, forced to live a life that is oppressive and downright degrading, we are seeing positive strides each year. More girls are going to school, the rate of F.G.M has gone down, and women are taking their place in the workforce.

Since the beginning of January, we have been addressing an issue with a young teenage girl who is deeply traumatized. She joined Form 1 in a girls-only boarding school three years ago, but she had to revert to being a day scholar. The girl’s father told us that his daughter was very excited to join boarding school, and he was equally happy for her to do so.

The days that followed were busy with school shopping as well as covering and labelling her books. Then it was time, and she joined the Secondary school.

A suitcase was dropped at the general service unit gate, home to the dreaded Kenyan army. It was abandoned overnight. The security officer, who found the suitcase, got curious and opened it. To his horror, he found a woman’s body stuffed inside; it had been chopped up into smaller pieces.

She was in her early 20s.  According to her father, who later came to identify the body, his daughter had dropped out of school when she was in Form 2. No motive has been established regarding her murder.
