Busia gang rape case kicks off

09 April 2014, 10:15 Nechesa Chemoi

Busia - A group of men accused of gang raping a schoolgirl and being made to cut grass around a police station as punishment were formally charged at the Busia Law courts on Tuesday.

The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko last week directed that the suspects be charged after reviewing the evidence.

According to a statement from Tobiko’s office, the prosecution filed an amended charge sheet charging all the 6 suspects with the offences of gang rape and grievous harm respectively.

“In addition, the Prosecution, applied and obtained warrants of arrest for the 5 suspects who are still at large,” the statement read in part, adding that it also applied for Liz to be declared as a vulnerable witness and Court protective measures including appointment of an intermediary for her.

However, the defence sought more time to reply to the prosecution’s application for Court protective measures.
The case was then put off to 28th April, 2014 for the defence to reply.

Liz, was reportedly attacked and raped by six men in Busia in June last year. The gang dumped her, bleeding and unconscious, in a deep ditch.

Worldwide outrage over the punishment last year prompted over 1.6 million people to sign a petition demanding justice, with the office of the director of public prosecution then ordering an investigation into the handling of the case.
