More Than 1 Million Sign Anti-Rape Petition in Kenya

Three men accused of gang-raping a girl were ordered to cut grass in a case that prompted national outrage


More than a million people have signed an online petition demanding justice after three men accused of brutally gang-raping a girl in Kenya were ordered to cut grass as punishment.

The policemen who ordered the punishment should be disciplined for failing to investigate rape charges, the petition said.

The 16-year old was gang-raped and dumped in a pit latrine in Busia.

When her case came to light earlier this month, it caused national outrage.
