Sisters raped by gang of three in Sabatia

16 October 2013, 10:04 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Two sisters are nursing injuries at Vihiga Hospital in Mbale after a gang of three unidentified men attacked them at their home Monday night and raped them.

The incident is the second one targeting the same family from Lusala village in Sabatia constituency, Vihiga County, in less than three months.

"Phylis Kasai’s house was broken into at around 1am and her two daughters aged 16 and 17 gang raped by unidentified suspects," Sabatia police boss, Martha Mutegi said.

She noted that in the first incident, the minors were stripped naked in front of their mother and then taken to a nearby bush where they were raped.

The mother said the attackers confessed that they had been sent to torture the family adding that the issue was under investigations.

“Preliminary investigations indicate that the incident could be as a result of family wrangles whose main aim is to evict the single mother from her home," Mutegi said.

She allayed fears that the incident was not a security threat as security had been beefed up in the region and police patrols increased.

“Security in Sabatia is not as bad as it had been a few months ago. People should not be worried. This incident is not a security threat,” she said.

She revealed that the two girls had been taken to the hospital adding that the 16-year-old girl was badly injured, although she was slowly recuperating.

Area member of parliament, Alfred Agoi, condemned the beastly incident noting that police should bring the perpetrators to book so that they can face the full wrath of the law.

"I want to condemn the act strongly, and urge the youths to engage in positive acts other than engaging in activities that will make them be haunted by the police," he said.

Agoi noted that CDF money was available for youths in the County and thus they should take the opportunity and utilise it.

"We want our youths not to be haunted because of engaging in criminal acts and thus they should engage in development projects," he said.

Incidences of insecurity in Sabatia constituency have been on the rise with police increasing patrols in the area to help arrest the criminals.
