She adds: After this stay in this house, Fatima began to complain of stomach aches and became very sick. Brought to the hospital, we were told that she was 4 months pregnant when we thought it was fibroid. We don’t know the perpetrator of this pregnancy, we just know that this 20-year-old girl was raped. On several occasions, she thought of committing suicide».

According to her, Ndeye Fatima Dione now intends to clarify all this history in order to know what happened in this house. “We were afraid of the uproar that her pregnancy would cause, but now we want to expose all the shenanigans that are going on in the organizing committee,” the source said.
