A Kibabii university student who was raped by a police officer is recuperating in a private hospital. The female student also had her arm chopped off during the horrific incident. As a result, she has yet to record her statement.
Meanwhile, an Administration Police Officer arrested in connection with the incident has not made his plea. The AP who appeared in court on Monday was attached to a Kanduyi, Bungoma police station.
The prosecution asked for an extra seven days to carry out the investigation, arguing that they could not get a statement from their victim who was still admitted to a hospital.
The prosecution wanted to conduct DNA tests and the Resident Magistrate decided to keep the suspect remanded for a week, even though he protested.
The rape victim was ambushed on her way home and raped.
