A rape suspect is fighting for his life at a Busia hospital in Western Kenya after receiving a thorough beating from an irate mob for raping a physically challenged woman.
The suspect, George Ouma, had crept into the victim's house after noticing the victim's caregiver leave the house at around 6 pm on Wednesday evening.
He took advantage of the victim’s situation and forced himself on her as she screamed for help.
“Luckily, her brother, who had just rushed to nearby Mundika market to buy vegetables, came back only to find the man in the beastly act,” said DCI.
Together with other angry villagers from Esikulu, they descended on the suspect with blows and kicks, attracting the attention of police officers from the local patrol base.
The officers rushed to the scene and saved Ouma from the angry mob's wrath.
Meanwhile, the visibly shaken victim was rushed to Busia county hospital for treatment and medical procedures necessary for a strong rape charge against Ouma.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
