Sexual Violence In Kenya Continues

The Coalition on Violence Against Women writes in The Star that “[s]exual violence in Kenya is commonplace, and the government is derelict in its responsibilities to protect victims, punish perpetrators, and provide redress to victims. … The government repeatedly asserts that its domestic justice system can address these crimes and has taken steps to establish an International Crimes Division in the High Court of Kenya. But even if judges are positioned to hear cases, there have still been very few investigations and prosecutions, and none of high-level perpetrators. … The rare cases where perpetrators of sexual violence are prosecuted stand as exceptions rather than the norm” (3/21).
