The girls would walk long distance to unkown places in the bush away from their homes into South Sudan or DR Congo .When they would get to the bush, they would be aligned with blouses removed,breasts exposed and the warlords would pick wives from the captives. Each commander would select 20 girls and would take them away to a secret place, and would have sexual intercourse with each of them. This was the second step of the wife selection process, from the 20 he would then choose the ones he thinks have sexually appeased him. And the rest would either be given a gun to fight or would be killed. A majority were never allowed to live.
While in the bush, Pamela gave birth to Gilbert and another Boy 12 years ,she returned from the bush in 2008 ,their Joy of coming back from the bush was short lived when the father of her children was jailed a year after.
Gilbert who was born in a bush does not know that he has a father, he does not know how he looks like, he was 2 years when his father was jailed.
