Three men who stripped a woman provoking demonstrations dubbed ‘my dress my choice’ in have been sentenced to death.
A driver, conductor of a Githurai bus and a petrol station attendant accused of stripping and sexually assaulting a female passenger and robbing her in 2014 have been found guilty.
Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi sentenced the three accused person Nicholas Mwangi, Meshack Mburu Mwangi and Edward Ndungu Kamau to suffer death for the charge of robbery with violence.
They have also been sentenced to serve 25years in prison. However, that sentence has been set aside due to the first sentence.
CM Andayi has said in his judgement that It is important to respect the decency of women.
He has added that from the evidence provided in court it was clear that the lady was alert and in her full senses and was aware of what happened to her.
The three were charged with sexually assaulting a woman on September 19 2014 at Millennium petrol Station in Githurai 44 and another count of robbing the victim items amounting to 41,700 shillings.
“It is important to respect all human being because we are all equal and even more important to respect a woman not to humiliate or harass a woman,” he said.
Twelve witnesses testified in the case.
In mitigation, the accused persons pleaded for leniency on grounds that they have been behind bars for three years with pump attendant indicating that he is a family man who is the sole breadwinner of his wife and two kids.
