Kenya reports an increase in child sex-abuse cases
Child sexual abuse, including acts of apparent ritual mutilation, has reached alarming proportions in Kenya with perpetrators using brutal and sophisticated means to keep their victims silent, according to a nationwide study.

"The abuse of children's rights in Kenya has become endemic," said Millie Odhiambo, the head of Child Rights Advisory, Documentation and Legal Center (CRADLE) which compiled the report released last week.

"Alarmingly, the most common form of abuse against children appear to be sexual abuse that takes the form of defilement, oral sex, exposing children to pornography and prostitution, amongst others," she said.

You'd laugh if you went to an African country and could even to dream about law enforcement. Then read an article like this and think how the heck was anyone even able to report a crime!

What about Christian Missionaries child molestations in Africa over the last 100 years?
