Abortion laws force abused women to stay with perpetrators in order to obtain abortions. One in five women is forced to remain with an abusive partner due to abortion laws.
Punishments for reporting crimes against women and child victims of violence are not being implemented. According to a Human Rights Watch report issued in 2011, “Despite the growing number of reported cases of child abuse in Keny바카라a, none of the law enforcement agencies in Kenya are carrying out formal investigations of those crimes. Instead, the law enforcement agencies’ focus is on their own criminal cases and on pursuing personal cases involving family members.” While Kenyan government efforts to prevent child abuse from being perpetrated by people living in Kenya are laudable, they do not apply in cases of abuse of women and children.
Violent Gender-Based Violence (Violenda)
Kenya’s criminal code provides for severe penalties for women and children who perpetrate gender-based violence against them, including rape, incest, robbery, abduction, imprisonment for rape, sexual violence, and forced marriage. In May 2009, a high court convict예스카지노ed a man who raped his two daughters after telling police he had no intention of marrying them and his girls were “going to live like animals until they [his two daughters] grow up.” A law enforcement officer arrested two girls for allegedly kidnapping and sexualizing their mothers and daughters, raping the victims and burning their corpses. A second case, which involved the kidnapping and torture of a seven-year-old girl, was closed by prosecutors on November 29, 2007. In 2006, the Kenyan Parliament passed the Law on Prohibiting Sexual Violence against Children and Girls (Protection of Child Sexual Abuse and Incest), which allows for charges to be brought against the perpetrators of child sexual abuse of a child to include the use of force and threats against the victim to force her to continue sexual activity. The law further criminalizes girls and women who have sex with women, boys and girls; it provides for punishments and is vague on who may be criminally responsible, including the perpetrators of child sexual abuse. The Kenyan Government’s Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act defines sexual abuse of a child as rape or any other act or activity against a child in a position of trust. In 2007, a male student was arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a ten-year-old girl by another student d바카라uring an early morning raid.
In November 2009, a female student was arrested and charged with sexual assault of a nine-year-old girl by a male student on her way to school.
