Rape MP asked woman to take AIDS test

Nairobi - A woman raped by an MP was asked to take an AIDS test to determine her HIV status before her ordeal.
The woman has claimed that she was raped by Imenti Central MP Gideon Mwiti at his Westlands offices after he requested for a meeting.
She claims that the MP had asked her to take an AIDS test, which she did not know about and that he quickly demanded for sex after he knew her results, which turned negative.
" The MP asked for sex immediately after the AIDS test, the woman whose identity will not be revealed due to the nature of the case told News24.
" It was sinister because it was a business meeting and after I refused to take the test, I was beaten and later on abused, she added.
The woman who tried to reach her husband but who failed to save her because the MP has several offices in the city and did not know where to find his wife, is admitted at the Nairobi Women's Hospital.
She says that she will move forward with the case because she is sure the MP has done the same to other women previously.
" It is a matter that needs to be sorted by the authorities. It cannot go on. He has to respect women, she added.
It is alleged that Mwiti has tried severally to sort the case out of court with the woman, but she and her family have insisted that the MP be prosecuted for the offence.
