On Friday 22nd January 2016, these women achieved justice
We entered the court room, cool air, dark wood, to listen to the final plea of the defence, representing four women accused of South Africa's first 'exorcism' case. We had been volunteering with Bobbi Bear for just over a week, and were had been eager to see the Durban High Court.
The facts were truly horrific as we listened to the prosecution and defence. Four women took the life of a 14 year-old, and the defence 'the accused are studying, have their whole lives ahead of them', little acknowledgement, that the murdered child would now also be 18 and studying, had her life not been brutally taken from her. The following day, the four accused were sentenced to life.
Lady Fair, a Child Protection Office from Bobbi Bear had been with the case from day one. She cheered as the verdict returned. The passion from the Bobbi Bear women was inspiring. They relentlessly supported the children and communities of South Africa, educating and protecting. These women are a force to be reckoned with, and should rule the world.
To support BobbiBear join the next VOLUNTEER INVESTMENT PROGRAMME in March 2016.
