Residents are now considering jungle justice, since the government isn’t considering the death penalty. Too many deaths in a world that is bereft of love. There is a scar and deep hole in too many hearts. Where ever it is happening, assault on children and women is just inexcusable. A 4-year-old girl died after she was reportedly brutally raped by a 21-year-old man in Malawi’s Chiradzulu district.
Malawi news media reported the girl was declared dead upon arrival at the hospital on May 21.
The incident occurred after the girl was sent to to collect a bucket from a nearby borehole by her grandmother.
She was in the company of her 7-year-old sister.
On their way back home, the two girls met the suspect Gift Eraton, who dragged the younger girl into a secluded garden and raped her, leaving her unconscious.
Her sister managed to escape and called on the village elders who found her unconscious.
The girl was rushed to a nearby hospital but she was declared dead on arrival.
Hence, several witnesses were quoted as saying that the girl was strangled to death before the suspects fled.
