A warrant of arrest has been issued against an Administrative Police officer in Embu, Kenya. The officer is facing three charges of gang raping a 19-year-old woman with a colleague at Eastern Provincial Headquarter’s gate.
The Embu court heard that on April 12th the two officers Ahmed Amayo and Richard Anondo arrested the woman for no charges and kept her in custody till dark. One of the officers dragged her to a GK car at the headquarters where they took turns to rape her at gun point.
After raping her for hours they drove her to a church in the area where they released her at about mid night and warned her against telling anyone. However the woman told some Good Samaritans of her ordeal.
After the arrest of the officers, they were arraigned in court and Anondo was released on a bond of Sh. 200,000. However, he has not been following the terms of the bond and has been skipping hearings.
Embu Chief Magistrate Margaret Wachira issued a warrant of arrest for Anondo who will be appearing in court on January 15.
