(+) BE­FORE THE COW, OTHER RAPISTS MADE TO CUT GRASS

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

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.
