We have just celebrated Youth Month. This makes me reflect on the challenges that the boy child is facing.
How do you explain or rationalise a phenomenon where boys are ganging up to rape, molest and even kill their victim?
On a daily basis, young girls are violated by boys who they had hoped and thought would protect them. We are indeed in serious trouble when boys, as young as 12 years old, plan to rape and kill young innocent girls.
Our boys also are taking drugs as if these drugs are going out of fashion. They even rob and maim their elders without fear of being arrested. Where has their conscience gone to?
What has happened to them to behave like cold-blooded monsters?
Or is it because society does not care for them anymore that they have lost interest in life and its challenges?
Maybe we are in a spiritual warfare against the devil that aims to destroy our future generation.
If these boys continue to indulge in drugs, unprotected sex and rape, what kind of fathers, husbands or future leaders are they going to be?
We need to act now to avert the birth of a generation of doom.
Mostly it is the choices that these boys make that get them into serious trouble. It is always expedient to blame their parents for their indiscretions but that does not absolve them from responsibility for their decisions.
