An eight year old was repeatedly gang raped by 14 men in Sudan and then the gang leader’s mum threatened to kill her if she told anyone about it according to reports.
The young child says she was brutally abused on several occasions after going to play with a friend at her neighbour’s house and the ordeal only came to light after the girl asked her father who is separated from her mum if she could leave her mum and go and live with him instead.
He says he noticed she was anxious and had lost her appetite when she asked the question.
The victim revealed how she went to her neighbour’s house to play, and her friend’s brother would lead her to another room where he and 13 other fiends raped her.
She also claims the rapist’s mother knew what was going on.
“She threatened to kill me if I told someone what had happened,” the girl said.
The girl and her father joined protesters in the Sudanese capital Khartoum last week demanding the death penalty for all child rapists.
She was pictured holding a sign which reads: “I am the child who was raped, eight and a half years old, by my neighbour and 13 others.
“I appeal to the minister of justice for retribution in a public domain.”
Her father says he has spent “five months knocking on doors of the prosecutors to restore my daughter’s rights.”
He has reportedly filed a legal case naming 17 people including the ring leader.
