(+) BEFORE THE COW, OTHER RAPISTS MADE TO CUT GRASS
Kibicho warned that rape cases are on the rise in Western. One of the most brutal rape cases reported from Western was that of Liz, whose attackers were made to cut grass as punishment. The 16-year-old girl was brutally raped by six men and dumped in a latrine, left for dead in Busia in June 2013. Liz was attacked as she was returning home from her grandfather’s funeral. She suffered fistula and spinal cord injuries, which left her wheelchair-bound. The case sparked national and international outrage, with the slogan ‘Justice for Liz’. Her attackers were sentenced to 15 years in prison.
