Ogiek Women Raped by GSU
Tinet / Kenya - WTN - 8th Jan. 2008 - Members of the General
Service Unit (GSU), the paramilitary force known for its brutality
since 20 years, have allegedly raped two Ogiek women and two girls
of minor age during the days of turmoil after the fraudulent
presidential election in Kenya.
Reports indicate that Paulina Segem and Josphine Soi (the names of
the minors are still withheld), who all hail from Tinet village,
were raped by GSU personnel, which had been dispatched to guard
the tea-factory and plantation at Kiptagich, belonging to former
president Daniel arap Moi.
The four victims have not yet officially reported to the Police,
because they fear reprisals at the hands of the police and the
given intimidation is forcing them to not file a report. The
that they get immediate protection from Human Rights Organizations
and thereafter will report and press charges.
