The story of the young lady who died while giving birth at 14 has caused mayhem on the internet.
Despite the ZRP releasing a statement that they will be looking into the matter, Mai Titi has given a statement. This is what she had to say:
PUBLIC NOTICE TO THE ZIMBABWE REPUBLIC POLICE
I note with grave concern the ongoing issue about a minor child who died whilst giving birth in the Marange area.
I am writing this statement as a mother of two beautiful daughters, a woman, and a Zimbabwean who is particular about Child rights.
Edmund Burke once noted that “The only thing necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing”. I refuse not to do anything.
This statement is a public notice to the Zimbabwe Republic Police to apprehend Evans Momberume’s suspect within 24 hours of this notice.
If there is no arrest in the stated period, I am driving personally to the Marange area, conducting a Citizen arrest against the suspect, and bringing him to the nearest Police Station.
I shall be broadcasting from the location so that whole of Zimbabwe sees in real-time the events.
My heart bleeds as I hear plans to send a 9year old to replace the child who is now deceased. Whilst, we are free to pursue our own faiths, any faith and practice that endangers the welfare and security of minor children is a nuisance in our society.
We need to look out for each other and protect our vulnerable children.
