Police blame drunkards, idlers for stripping women

18 November 2014, 12:46 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Hundreds have been arrested in Nairobi for stripping a woman.

The woman was the latest to be stripped in a spate of violence against women in the country, this incident taking place in Kayole ares in Nairobi's Eastlands.

After the incident, police conducted a swoop in the area, arresting over 100 persons, most of whom were intoxicated and idle, according to police.

" They were mostly intoxicated and most that we caught are well known idlers, a police officer who did not want to be named told News24.

Deputy Nairobi police boss Moses Ombati said that the swoop in the area would continue until the vice ends.

" It is against the law for any person to strip their fellow Kenyans of clothes and we will arrest those doing so, he said Tuesday of the operation.

Nearly 1,000 people took to the streets of Nairobi Monday to protest against a series of vicious public attacks on women who were stripped naked and assaulted for wearing mini-skirts or other clothing perceived to be immodest

Videos of two attacks in Mombasa and Nairobi, taken on cellphones and circulated widely via Twitter and other social media, show mobs of men surrounding the women, wresting off their clothes and appearing to kick them in their genital area.

One of the march's organisers said she was aware of 10 separate attacks across Kenya. The Nairobi attack, which happened in broad daylight on a busy street last week, sparked outrage in the cosmopolitan capital.

Deputy President William Ruto called the incident barbaric and Inspector General Police David Kimaiyo has appealed to the victim to come forward, local media reported.
