Police in southern Sudan has arrested four of it’s police officers for
reportedly gang raping two Kenyan girls.
The four policemen were working at Torit, in Eastern Equatoria State.
According to one senior police officer in southern Sudan, Dennis Taban, the two girls were arrested on Wednesday after being accused by a Sudan People’s Liberation Army soldier of stealing 850 Sudan dollars (about 425 US dollars.)
“The two girls have accused the policemen of gang raping them while they were in custody at night on Wednesday. The girls were taken today for medical check up and medical reports indicated that they were indeed raped,” Taban confirmed.
He said the four policemen will be charged for rape in the courts of law. He also said they cannot tolerate indiscipline in the police force and “therefore if
those policemen are found guilty they will be heavily punished”.
