I write this short note to thank the Minivan News team and Judith especially for the article on Shifau. I had to read the piece over and over again several times, to understand whether Shifau was a significant party to the gang warfare or just “collatoral damage”.
You might ask why I thank Judith and Minivan News. Is it not obvious?
An arrest of a man deserves the attention of the whole media and sometimes all state resources and the politicial leaders. Yet the loss of lives of young people on the streets of this Godforsaken City of Male’ does not deserve the attention of the high officials and politicians who are busy with their personal agendas.
Thank you Minivan. Please keep up the vigil so that the matter is brought to the attention of people who matter. Let the people rise to the occassion as they did to the murder of Evan Naseem and others.
Our young people cannot be left to die! Please God, do something!
Shifau – left to die
