a piece of sad news reaching our front desk is one about a 17 year old girl who for some reasons name has been with heald. this girl got raped by 3 strong men on her visit to one of them who she had just met on facebook and started online dating with.
upon the girl’s first visit to the online boyfriend identified as Vincent as scheduled by the boy, the boy raped her and kicked her out leaving her to be raped by two more guys.
according to the girl when reporting the issue said:
“I met the man on Facebook. His first name is Vincent. He invited me to Mbale, Vihiga County so that I know where he stays. I usually stay with my aunt. I told her that I was going to visit mum and return on Sunday, June 14.
“He told me to use my money to travel to his place, and that he will refund once I get there. Vincent defiled and kicked me out of his house without giving me any money to travel back home.
“While stranded, I met a Boda Boda rider, who promised to provide me with somewhere to shelter for the night. He further said that the following day, he will take me to Kisumu, where I will board a bus home. He took me to a lodging facility in Kakamega, where he defiled and stole my phone.
“On returning to Mbale, I met yet another man, who took me to Vincent’s place. We found the door had been locked. The then-curfew cut-off hour of 7pm had clocked. So, the man told me he would take me to his place, where I would spend the night. While at his home, he defiled me and kicked me out the following morning.
“I want this case to be pursued to the end. The men hurt me.”
the good news is that a report from K2TV has it that one of the suspects, David Nyangweso has been arrested and arraigned. He is being held in custody as investigations into the matter continue.
