Two to serve 20 years for raping woman in front of her husband

Two middle-aged men who raped a woman as she walked home at night in the company of her husband have been sentenced to 20 years in prison by a Kapenguria court.

Jackson Chelinganyang and Joseph Rianagura were found guilty of having committed the offence on April 5, 2015, at 8pm in Chepkorniswo in West Pokot County.

The two attacked the woman as she and her husband were returning home from the market.

Her husband was hit on the head and lost consciousness; they then proceeded to rape her.

The sentence was delivered by resident magistrate Martin Wachira. The two were first arraigned in court on April 22, 2015 and have been in custody throughout the hearing.
