A 14-year-old girl who has been impregnated by her father said she had to endure a series of both physical and sexual abuse from him.

The case was reported to 237 online by the Colombe association on April 23, 2015 after she fled her father’s home earlier this year.

Mariama, who stays alone with her father in Dibombari, Douala said her mother fled the house due to abuse from her father when she was only five years old. According to her, she began to suffer sexual abuse from her father at the age of nine and refusal to give in to him attracted some lashes.

The girl who could not endure the harsh treatment she received from her father courageously turned to the Colombe association to report her father on March 20, 2015.

Representatives of Colombe took the already traumatized victim to a hospital and after a pregnancy test; it was revealed she was pregnant.

Also Mariama is under the safety of the association until further investigations on her father who has been arraigned before court is over.

Meanwhile the child knew her father as her only relative without knowing the existence of any uncle, aunt, grandparents or cousins. This is because the father had never introduced any of them to her.

According to the Colombe Association, Mariama needs help in all its forms adding that this act is one of many that have occurred in the country.

The Association fighting against sexual violence in all its forms and for the protection of children, calls for vigilance and the involvement of all in this fight.

“Sexual abuse against children is destroying our youth and every suspicious behavior must be denounced in the competent services or through our Association”, stated the Association.
