She said that on the morning of December, 05th, 2012, while at church, her brother called her to ask her about her whereabouts.

He then instructed her to be home by 4:30 pm.

On the way home from church with two friends they met the brother who got angry and asked the girls if they were the ones who delayed her.

“He told the girls that they shouldn’t say anything, they left me and he dragged me to the bush where there was a shack with torn blankets. He told me to call my mother and friends to inform them that my life was about to end. He then took off his clothes and forced me to undress but I refused, so he undressed me and raped me,” said the victim.

The matter was later reported to the police who arrested the suspect and took the matter before court.

The suspect, who is on bail, is expected to be back in court for continuation of trial on August 5th, 2024.
