Video of Woman Being Raped in Nairobi CBD Sparks Fear

  • A video of a woman being raped in the Nairobi CBD in full view of pedestrians has sparked fear leading Nairobi Directorate of Criminal Investigations Nicholas Kamwende to take action.

    Kamwende has asked the woman in the video to personally go to his office and report the incident for arrests to be made.

    “What happened to the woman was wrong and we are urging her, wherever she is, to come to my office and record a statement so that she can help us in getting the men behind it," he remarked.

    A team of detectives has already been formed to pursue the matter and bring the perpetrators to book.

    The undated video seen by shows the unidentified woman calling for help while someone is recording the ordeal.

    It is believed to have taken place along River Road and was carried out by a street boy.

    "Don’t kill me please and please warn that person to stop recording. He might cause me to be killed,” cried the woman, who had already been overpowered.

    This comes just two days after rugby players Frank Wanyama and Alex Olaba denied gang-raping a female singer and were released on a cash bail of Ksh500,000 each.

    According to the charge sheet, the two were accused of committing the act in Highrise, Nairobi on February 11, 2018.

    However, Wanyama and Olaba pleaded not guilty before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi and the hearing of the case was set for May 16, 2018.

    The two Kenya Harlequin FC players were arrested last week after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji stated there was sufficient evidence for their prosecution.
