Kenyan authorities and aid agencies say defilement and sexual abuse cases against girls and women have increased since the start of Covid-19 pandemic.
The reports indicate children have extra time off these days since some schools closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. That is making them more vulnerable to sexual predators.
Currently, a 59-year-old woman from a marginalized community, has died after a group of evil minded men gang up to defile her repeatedly.
According to statements filed in police station said victim was doing her manual duties, when she was dragged into a nearby bush and attacked by the men.Authorities further refuted reports that the woman's tongue was cut out — when in fact she bit down on it while the pervs tried to strangle her.
The doctor's reports reveals that the woman dies while receiving treatment under intensive care unit, after suffering from multiple fractures.
The latest assaults come months after four men were arrested for the 2020 gang defilement and murder of a University student.
