Dick

There is a far deeper problem to the article. In Great Britian rape is a
criminal act.
My surprise with that the article, is why it took so long to bring the
culpits to book?
This is a very serious issue by the way.
More so military law  to which most African countries subscribe  and
which originated 
in the UK is very very very strict on such behaviours within the army to
the extent that
it migth cause demotion, dismissal from the army and imprisonment.

Now where do we start?

stay well,
