As your Leader, whether in the past or now, I would like to express “my firm opposition” to rape and also to all forms of violation of the rights and freedoms of individuals, even more to the constant promotion of these violations at the view of the entire population … Something clearly needs to be done about this given the reported outrage of the population.
I ask the Ivorian media to become fully aware of their responsibilities vis-à-vis the education of new generations. I condemn the authors of these broadcasts and welcome the response of the Ivorian authorities.
My sincere compassion to all victims of sexual violence around the world.
May the Creator bless you and protect you.
