RAPE CRIME: Help 16 year old Liz Pseudonym get justice from Kenyan Government.

Filed under: Global Issues |

 

Hundreds of protesters marched in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, to demand proper punishment against men who were ordered to mow the lawn for gang-raping Liz. Liz is a native of Kenya, whose complete identity, including full name are kept under rap because of the sensitivity of her situation. She was ambushed by six men while walking home from her grandfather’s funeral in Busia County in western Kenya in June, who took turns in raping her and her unconscious body, thrown into a 6-meter deep pit latrine. According to Nairobi-based Daily Nation newspaper who reported on October 29, that as a result of her injuries from the assault, Liz is now confined to a wheelchair, paralyzed.

 

 

There punishment for such a hideous crime, given to them by the state police, was to mow the lawn in their station after which they were set free?! What is that? Is this a kind of high school punishment for noise making in the classroom? They might as well give them a pat on the back for a job well done. The President of Kenya, should weigh in on this unless he is ready to use this as his next campaign slogan during Kenya’s general election; ‘vote for me: get to mow a lawn for rape crime’.

 

 

Mowing a lawn for a crime of rape committed by six men on a girl of 16, is simply an act of kindness, more like encouragement for job well executed and for that singular act of kind gesture by the Kenyan police, it stand to reason that both the police and the rapist are working together and should not go unpunished.

 

According to our friends from the legal profession who are used to the statement: truth is relative, so one can quit wondering why people maybe finding it difficult to differentiate between justice and vengeance this days. If matter of this magnitude is treated with such levity by the government, it leave little to reasoning why some people chose to take laws into their hands -violence against women, girl, or any person must end.

 

 

Alarming but shameful statistics shows that two out of five women in the world are subjected to rape, and more than half of that number chose to keep it secret, while one out of every three women suffer domestic violence, girl child molestation and all kinds of gender harassment. Liz’s case should present Kenya’s government with the rarest opportunity to lay the gauntlet for such gross misconduct from future offenders and by so doing sending out a clear message to the world for those who will be interested in molesting women or any girl child.

 

 

Enough is enough, Join this cause, and let your voices be heard loud and clear. It could be your daughter, mother, niece or sister tomorrow who suffers from such indignity and injustice. Make your contributions with ideas to stemming this act.
