I condemn the brutal rape & murder of Hamdi Mohamed Farah, may Allah have mercy on her soul. Rape & sexual offences against women are acts that have recently become rampant in our society. We have to collectively confront this kind of crime and reject it with one voice. Investigative agencies should swiftly bring to book the perpetrators of this crime so they could face the full force of the law.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim, may her soul rest in peace.
