3 Men Sentenced to Death for Assaulting a Woman in Kenya


Via BBC........
The death sentence was imposed after the three were convicted of robbery with violence.

A further 25-year sentence for stri--pping the woman was suspended due to the death penalty.

The incident was recorded and shared widely on social media three years ago, sparking nationwide protests.

Hundreds of women, some in tight fitting clothes, marched through Nairobi, rallied by the hash tag #MyDressMyChoice.

Chief magistrate Francis Andayi said that those convicted had taken part in a "senseless and uncouth attack that they seemed to enjoy because they were cheering as they stripped the woman", the privately owned Daily Nation newspaper reports.

This episode was part of a wave of sessual assaults in Nairobi during 2014.

Most people have been in support of today's ruling, however, one man told the BBC that the sentence was unfair and that women need to dress according to Kenyan traditions.Cases of sessual assault of this nature have greatly reduced recently.
