  • I9-year-old from Gatwikira,  Kibra, was accosted by a group of young men who threatened her with a knife before dragging her into an isolated house where the four gang-raped her.
  • While there have been measures to contain such incidents in the slums, challenges including proliferation of Kangaroo courts and delayed response by authorities still abound.
  • The perpetrators do not get arrested and for those who we manage to prosecute, the court cases drag for long.
  • A 12-year-old recently defiled by a 16-year-old who was considered a minor and easily got off the hook.
