Liz's campaign goes global

What you need to know:

  • A study in 2009 found that up to 68% of girls and 54% of boys in Kenya have been subjected to forceful sex.
  • The matter was first reported at Tingolo Administration Police Camp where it was recorded as an assault and three suspects arrested by villagers were released after they were made to slash grass in the compound as a punishment.
  • On Wednesday, the public prosecution’s boss Keriako Tobiko said he had received the file and directed immediate arrest and prosecution of the suspects. He had also ordered an inquiry into the conduct of the police who first handled the case.
  • But Friday, Butula CID boss who is leading investigations into the case said he was yet to receive Mr Tobiko’s directions.

A campaign pushing for the arrest and prosecution of suspects who violently attacked and gang-raped a Busia pupil four months ago has gone global.
