The story of Janet Langa, a widow from Nyaori area in Nyalenda A, Kisumu, is a harrowing tale of violence and injustice. Janet lost her sight after her brother-in-law allegedly porched her eye with pliers, leaving her with only one eye. The incident occurred when she questioned him about the proceeds from the trees he had sold at their home. This is not the first time the perpetrator has been accused of violence; he has a history of attacking family members and even causing the death of his own father.
Despite these serious allegations, the perpetrator is still walking free. This is a clear indication of the failure of the justice system to protect victims of violence and hold perpetrators accountable for their actions. It is unacceptable that someone with such a violent history is still able to walk freely and continue to pose a threat to the community.
Janet Langa's story highlights the urgent need for action to be taken to address the issue of violence against women in Kenya. The government must ensure that victims of violence receive the justice they deserve, and that perpetrators are held accountable for their actions. This can only be achieved by strengthening the legal framework and providing adequate resources to support victims.
It is time for the authorities to take action to bring Janet's attacker to justice and prevent further acts of violence from occurring in the community. The people of Nyaori and beyond deserve to live in a safe and secure environment, free from the threat of violence. It is time for justice to be served.
