That figure is going to go high says a victim who was willing to speak out. She says the victims feel like why report when nothing is done.

In 1992 when she was only eighteen a man tacked her raped and strangled her leaving her for dead. And he was never cought, a feeling she knows most how the prosces of reporting the crime can be frustrating. eNCA's reporter Barry Baitman filed this report Courtesy of#Dstv403 #eNCA
