- Shadrack Murimi Maina, 45 and Hiribae Kokane, 43 took turns in attacking the intellectually impaired woman.
- They are now in police custody awaiting arraignment.
Police in Lamu are holding two men who allegedly gang-raped a mentally handicapped woman.
Shadrack Murimi Maina, 45 and Hiribae Kokane, 43, subjected the woman to the dreadful act in an abandoned house in Sina Mbio area.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations reports that the two masqueraded as Good Samaritans before attacking the woman.
“The sex perverts, accompanied by a Nyumba Kumi elder Samuel Ngumi, were on foot patrol when they bumped into the middle-aged woman preparing tea in the crime-prone area,” says DCI. “She had a loaf of bread.”
It was around 8am, Monday.
Watch Over Her
Fearing for her safety, the elder asked the two men to watch over her as he went to seek help. Upon return, he found Murimi in the act of raping the woman. “Kokane had already taken his turn and fled the scene,” adds DCI.
With the help of residents, Ngumi rescued the woman and alerted the police. The two suspects were swiftly arrested. The officers took the terrified victim to the nearby Hindi Magogoni Dispensary for medical examination. The rapists were also subjected to a medical examination.
Murimi and Kokane will now face rape charges once detectives finalise investigations. “To stem the rising cases of rape and defilement, the DCI wishes to caution men who prey on innocent women and girls that their days are numbered,” the sleuths warned.
