The driver and conductor of a Githurai bus in which a woman was stripped and sexually assaulted face the death penalty after they were charged with robbery with violence and sexual assault.
Nicholas Chege and Meshack Mwangi of NAZIGI SACCO denied that on the night of 19th November at millenium petrol station in Githurai 44, the two jointly with others used violence to rob off and assault a female passenger whose identity the court ordered concealed.
They took her bag, which had her mobile phone and other personal effects worth more than forty thousand shillings. They then sexually assaulted her while video recording her ordeal. The two were temporarily denied bail for their safety due to public outrage against them but the court will make a ruling on the same next Thursday. The bus still remains in police custody as a crime scene exhibit.
