University student gang-r.a.p.e.d, stabbed in private parts while returning from nightclub with boyfriend

A Second-Year student at Kibabii University is fighting for her life at the Bungoma West Hospital after she was gang-r.a.p.e.d at 3:30am on Saturday.

The victim was in the company of her boyfriend, who is also a Second-Year student at Kibabii, when the incident happened.

The lovebirds were returning to the hostels after spending Friday night at a nightclub in Kanduyi.

A five-man gang waylaid the couple meters to the university and whipped out crude weapons. The victim’s boyfriend managed to free himself and took off, leaving his girlfriend behind.

The female student was r.a.p.e.d in turns by the five-man gang, who also cut her in the buttocks before stabbing her in the private parts.

Her boyfriend ran to the hostels and informed other students, who rushed to the scene, but found the criminals had already fled.

The students took the victim who was unconscious to Bungoma West Hospital, where she is receiving treatment.

Dr Dennis Sande of Bungoma West Hospital told K24 Digital that they took the patient to theatre for a surgical operation.

“We are planning to transfer her to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret for advanced medical attention,” said Dr Sande while appealing for blood donation.
