Reprimand For The Rapists and Reforms In Policy Against Rape and Gender Based Violence

Cases of rape have been on the rise in Kenya. They have especially led to many girls under 15 getting pregnant and emotionally scarred for life. They have destroyed parents and siblings alike.

Most children get raped by their relatives and known persons such as neighbors.

There are a lot of relatives and family members that know who committed the rape cases but they choose to be quiet for one reason or the other. Most of these cases are committed by close family members. Therefore, the government needs to make some of these changes:

The right laws will minimize rape cases in Kenya and fight gender based violence.

1.Punish family members that refuse to speak up not unless it can be proven that they were threatened.

2. Punish both offender and siblings that choose to hide their own relative from facing justice.

3. Ban family members that would be considered a threat to other relatives from attending court proceedings and holding them with reasonable cause to perform harm on their own relatives.

If these are performed, then the rape cases will go down. They have to go down as they have been significantly on the rise. Many are suffering and others are as brazen as to post their deeds online such as had been done by a certain chief in the North of Kenya.

“You can prevent rape by reporting your own relatives to the police”.

Alfred Yambo
Let the government be stricter in punishing rape.

We can fight rape and create a safer society for the girls who have been forced out of school by the COVID-19. Let us not forget the boys who also get sodomized by the relatives just as girls. The boy child should not be neglected and deserves as much care too.

Keep your children safe. Always.
