Police investigators in Bukhulungu, Busia County are on the hunt for three men believed to have defiled two sisters on Saturday night.
Reports show that the men broke into a house where three sisters aged 13, 14 and 19 were sleeping. They proceeded to rape two of the sisters before stealing household items.
The sisters were alone during the time of the incident as their uncles and grandmother were away.
The victims were taken to Buburi dispensary for treatment with medical reports confirming that they were defiled.
According to the girls’ grandmother, the assailants threatened that they would return.
“Sisi sasa tunaishi kwa woga, unasikia waliambia watoto watarudi tena….serikali itusaidie,” the grandmother told Citizen TV.
The girls’ uncle, Mr Kevin Bwire, suspected that some locals have been working together with the thugs to commit crimes.
“It seems kuna watu hapa wanacoordinate na strangers na kuwapatia information ya kuja kuvamia na kufanya vitendo kama hivi.”
Investigations are ongoing.
