Senior Prosecutor Tells Kenyan Court About Challenges of Taking SGBV Cases to Trial

A senior prosecutor told the High Court of Kenya 21 sexual and gender-based violence cases were filed in court following the violence that wracked Kenya after the 2007 presidential election.

Jacinta Nyaboke Nyamosi told the High Court on Wednesday, March 29, this was information in a press brief made by a multi-agency task force that reviewed cases from the post-election violence of December 2007 to February 2008.

“We got 11 convictions. In one case there was an acquittal. Five cases were withdrawn. In three cases there were warrants pending,” Nyamosi told the court.

“The accused absconded?” asked Judge Enock Chacha Mwita.

“Yes,” Nyamosi replied.
