Upon reading the story captioned ‘File on abused 2-yr-old sent to DPP’ published on Tuesday 29th October 2013 on p 16, I felt compelled to make a public comment. This article, essentially informed of the death of a female toddler, Kimanie Watson, who reportedly collapsed after a sudden bout of diarrhoea. The autopsy that followed little Kimanie’s demise, “revealed she had been sexually abused… her anus was dilated.” This is indeed a gross act against humanity.
Based on the facts presented in this account alone, this is a case where the family has failed in its duty of care to this child.
The file is now in the possession of our DPP. I eagerly await the findings of this case and even as I do, I pray that justice be done.
In the meantime I make a special appeal to our families, caregivers, guardians, to be more vigilant in watching over those whom God has placed in their care, especially the young and vulnerable.
