GSU officer sodomises his drunk friend
By Mercy Kahenda | March 28th 2016
A General Service Unit (GSU) officer allegedly sodomised his friend during a drinking spree in Subukia.
The suspect, who is attached to the Molo GSU camp, is alleged to have inebriated the victim last Thursday before sodomising him in a latrine at Subukia Centre.
According to the victim, the officer picked him at around 2pm and they went to drink in a club at the centre
He said at around 8pm when he wanted to leave for home, the officer asked him to stay because he was expecting his brother who was travelling from Kitale to join them at the club.
He said at around 9pm, the accused's brother arrived accompanied by his wife and they continued drinking.
The victim said when he went to the washroom to relieve himself, the officer followed him, forcefully removed his pants and sodomised him on floor of the toilet.
He said his cries for help were mot heard as the officer had locked the door.
"The officer threatened to kill me if I continued shouting," said the victim.
He said after being sodomised, the officer told him not to tell anyone.
He said on Friday morning, he went to Subukia Police Station to report the incident but was not allowed to record a statement after the officers realised he was implicating a fellow officer.
He said he returned home and shared his ordeal with a neighbour who accompanied him back to the police station and demanded that the officers took his statement.
"When I went back with my neighbour, the police agreed to take my statement," said the victim.
He later went to Subukia Health Centre where he was examined, treated and discharged.
Subukia police boss Alex Ng'ang'a said the implicated officer was summoned to the station to record a statement and was released as investigations go on.
Mr Ng'ang'a said he had directed the station's commanding officer to ensure that the people who were at the club, including barmaids, wrote statements at the station to help in investigations.
He added that an inquiry file had been opened that would be handed over to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to advise further.
"Investigating is a process and it is evidence that will see the officer interdicted and arraigned in court for justice to take its course," said Ng'ang'a.
He, however, denied allegations that his officers turned the victim away when he went to record a statement.
