MP wants rapists castrated

17 August 2016, 21:04

Nairobi - A female MP from Central Kenya is proposing that the law amended so that  people who rape women, young girls and boys  are castrated.

Murang’a County Women representative Sabina Chege Wednesday while   noting the increase in the number of rape cases, observed that castration was the only way to deter the sexual offenders.

“The long  jail terms are not working. Barely a week passes without cases of young boys and girls getting raped. Castration should be the ultimate punishment now for these sexpests,” Sabina told journalists.

“We should have no mercy on these terrible criminals. They should face the harshest form of punishment,” explained the MP.

A recent shocking report on rape statistcis in Kenya’s capital city Nairobi showed that slums are the leading areas where sexual and gender violence occurs.

According to the report by  Medecins San Frontieres (MSF)  released in April  2,421 victims were sexually abused in Nairobi last year.

The report indicated  that areas around Kasarani, Githurai, Roysambu, Kahawa West, Marurui, Santon, Mwiki, United States International University and Kenyatta University recorded the highest number of victims, who were sexually abused last year.

Kayole, Soweto, Donholm, Umoja, Jacaranda, Saika and Komarock areas were rated the second. MCF reports show that the least cases of sexual abuse were reported in Makadara, Nyayo, Mbotela, Maringo, Jericho, Harambee and Buruburu.
