Rape Obscene

Rongai: Man Charged for Raping a Woman and Infecting Her with HIV

There was drama at Kibera Law Court on Tuesday after a man (name withheld) was charged of raping a woman, committing an indecent act with an adult and deliberately transmitting a sexually transmitted infection to the complainant whose name also was withheld.

The motorist is accused of luring the woman who was stranded at Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) bus stop along Magadi road on May 27 promising he would drop her at her home in Ongata Rongai, only to end up in his house at Kuthi rental houses along Magadi Road where he committed the offence.

He denied the charge before chief magistrate Joyce Gandani.

According to the police report in court, the woman was at the CUEA bus stage waiting to board a matatu to her house in Rongai when the accused approached.

The report further states that the accused then offered her a ride home.

The man drove up to Total Petrol Station along Magadi Road where he stopped and told her that he wanted to greet his friend at the adjacent pub.

The woman decided to accompany him, the report reads. When they got into the claimed bar, there was no friend and the man just bought beers which they drank together.

“The woman allegedly got worried and requested the man to drop her off at Rongai or let her take a boda boda there. But the accused told her that riders are immoral and dangerous at night,” it reads.

He instead advised her to go with him to his house until the next day as it was almost curfew time.

“They agreed on it and ate supper around 10 pm before they went to bed and he raped her,” the police report states.

It also states that the man claimed to have used protection both at night and in the morning.

However, the woman checked the condoms and upon realizing they had holes, she insisted they go for an HIV test.

The man is said to have refused at first but he later accepted. He tested positive of the virus.

Gandani released him on Sh200, 000 bond or Sh50, 000 bail. The case is slated to proceed on August 10.
