Justice for Liz: Busia Gang rape survivor.

On the International Day of the Girl, we ask you to join us in demanding justice for Liz, a 16 year old girl who was beaten and gang-raped on her way home from her grandfather’s funeral and dumped in a pit latrine in Busia, Kenya. She is now wheelchair bound with a broken spine and has the worst case of fistula. She recognized her rapists and identified them to the police. Police arrested perpetrators only to have them slash grass as ‘punishment’ after which they were released.

Please sign and circulate the petition demanding an immediate arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators as well as disciplinary action on the police officers who failed to handle their duties to serve and protect.

We must not allow impunity to reign and women and girl’s bodies to continue to be battlefields. No more violence. No more impunity. Justice Now!Engage in the online conversations – #BusiaRape #JusticeForLiz. 

Let’s make lots of noise – too deafening for the powers that be to ignore.

Donations can be sent to MPesa Paybill 500944 to help meet Liz’s hospital bills.
