Kenyan rapists get 15 years jail

A Kenyan court has ordered 15-year imprisonment to each of the three men who gang-raped and dumped into pit latrine a teenage girl.
The girl was on her way home from her grandfather’s funeral in western Kenya’s Busia County in June 2013 when she was assaulted.
The girl, Liz, suffered a broken back and serious internal injuries.
It would be recalled that in October 2013, hundreds of people walked to the Kenyan police headquarters in Nairobi to deliver the petition, while the case was subsequently referred to the country’s judicial watchdog.
Meanwhile, reports that the rapists were ordered by police to cut grass as a punishment caused global outrage last year. The Kenyan police denied the claims.
Nearly two million people signed a petition demanding justice for the raped girl.
