  1. Such savagery…. and over a phone charger allegedly! Adults, where are you? Where is the village that it takes to raise a child? Those boys lost their father tragically back in 2012 when these boys were eight and twelve years old respectively. What support systems were there at the time to help this family cope? What support systems are there in place currently to assist especially our vulnerable youth to properly cope with problems they will inevitably face as they grow. Where are our church priests, bishops, deacons, elders, congregants? Where are the community clubs and other social groups that daily hug the spotlight… doing what??? It is time to rise from our stupor. Political wranglings, nasty exchanges, artificial barriers erected among families and communities must take a back seat, if not abandoned altogether, to the God-given responsibility of caring for our children, for if such is the kingdom of God.
