Njeri Rugene’s article in the Daily Nation of October 7th 2013, about the gang rape of a 16 year old girl in Busia County by three men, who were subsequently released by policemen with an order to cut grass, confirms the committed efforts to reverse the gains made by women within the Constitution. Rugene’s report comes over a month since the uproar caused by Governor Kidero’s public assault on Nairobi women’s representative Rachel Shebesh on 6th September 2013.
