Narok - Three suspected gangsters have been arraigned before a Narok Court charged with six different counts of violent robbery and gang rape at the volatile Olpusimoru area in Narok County that was recently rocked by tribal violence.
The accused persons allegedly took advantage of the police patrols currently going on in the area due to insecurity where they have been knocking on the doors of their victims pretending to be police officers before robbing and raping women.
Boniface Kerema, Dickson Kuiyo and Moses Sadera appeared before Narok Senior Resident Magistrate, Allan Sitati where they were charged with violently robbing a businessman of KES 4 000 in cash on January 7 this year.
They also faced another charge of gang raping the wife of the businessman the same night in the full glare of the businessman.
They denied the charges.
The court also heard that on January 9 this year at the same Olpusimoru trading centre, the accused persons broke into the house of another woman and gang raped her.

They faced alternative counts of indecently assaulting the rape victims herein by touching their private parts.
They denied the charges and were remanded until January 14 when their case will be mentioned.
The prosecution had opposed their release on bond saying the investigations were not complete and if released the accused persons were likely to interfere with them.
On Christmas Eve last year, violence erupted in Olpusimoru area within Narok County on the Narok-Nakuru border after suspected cattle rustlers shot dead two Maasai herders at Kass FM village in the Mau Forest and made away with some of the animals they were herding.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
