More than one million people have signed a petition demanding justice after three of six men accused of brutally raping a Kenyan teenager before dumping her in a ditch were ordered only to cut grass in punishment before being set free.

Kenya police chief is "awaiting instructions..." Cop out much...It's time officials realize that women Do have a Voice and will keep hammering away at these atrocities against them, no matter where it happens. The guilty ones need prison, where they just may find rape and beating isn't fun when on the receiving end.

Rape is a violent assault and should be codified as such, not as the equivalent of a traffic violation in the West. Noted and thanks.

and she is in a wheelchair now! A young man here in South Africa was given two life sentences last week for raping and beating a young girl who subsequently died from her injuries, if she hadnt had died he probably would have got off too. There is alot of violence to women and children in Africa. I always thought that Kenya was somehow more aware and treated their women better, but i must be wrong. Those six Kenyan men who raped her thought she would die in that ditch im sure...then no one would have known.
