At the age of 10, as a very shy primary school learner, I had no idea what this man I called my father was doing. We would stay alone in the house like any mother would leave their child with the father. He would get me all this nice stuff I would want, play with me, get me naked and bath me. It was all so sudden when all this led to him being sexually attached to me. This terrible situation only made sense to me when I was in my late primary grades. As a child you hear about all this weird things everywhere you go. I was too scared to say anything to anyone, not even my mother because I thought it would soon come to an end but this eventually continued till I was in grade 10.

My mum sent me to boarding school the next year, yet she still had no idea what was going on in my life. It felt like a challenge for me to go back home for the first time, but nothing happened throughout the weekend and my dad was so excited I was home. Three months past and everything was still ok, a month later I found out I was pregnant. I had gotten ill that morning, and felt some fever coming along. My hostel mother suggested I go see a doctor and it wasn’t such a big deal for me. I got my blood and urine tested but it came very shocking when the doctor told me I was pregnant. I couldn’t think of how I would’ve gotten pregnant but after some counselling from my doctor I suddenly thought of my dad. I had never felt so much pain in my life.

A week later I told my best friend about this situation, you know how friends are. She insisted I get rid of the baby and that she knows someone who could help me. Never in my life had I went through such, I was a step away to loosing my life although I had gotten rid of the pregnancy. I got over the whole situation but sadly enough in my matric year I experienced some complications in my body. Had I not aborted the innocent baby, I would be a mother of two kids today like I had always wished. Here I am now, tormented by my past and can never in my life have kids again. I pray and hope every day of my life but I have learned to accept that our past will always haunt us no matter how strong and how hard you try. Had I not let my dad get away with his torture perhaps the matter would have been handled in the right manner and my child would be alive. Rape is every woman’s worst night mare and I hope nobody would ever go through the same thing I did because it’s such a horrible situation to even think about.


  • Rape is a crime and it should be reported. No rapist should be let loose because they all belong behind bars. Who deserves to live a proper life when they have tortured someone else’s?
  • As a young girl there is so much pressure from those around you, the decisions you take and mistakes you make can also affect you for the rest of your life. Be careful who and what you listen to and don’t let your past determine your future for you.
