Brothers Arrested for Abducting, Gang raping Schoolgirl for a Week

May 16, 2019

Two brothers were on Tuesday arrested for allegedly gang-raping a school girl in Homa Bay County.

The two — Kevin Ouma, 25, and Tyson Onyango, 20 — allegedly abducted the girl while she was on her way back to school from home where she had gone to collect school fees.

Area chief Bernard Omuga said Tyson — who is a bodaboda rider — lied to the girl that he would take her to school but forcefully took her to their rental house at Pala Trading Center where they detained and defiled her for one week.

Mr. Omuga added that the Form Two student said Tyson, his brother Kevin and another unidentified man had gang raped her.

Acting on a tip-off from members of the public, the Chief and area police officers stormed the house on Tuesday where they found Tyson with the student.

The detectives then tracked down and arrested Kevin, further launching a manhunt for the third unidentified suspect.

The two brothers were detained at Homa Bay Police Station.
