Lamu Woman Representative Ruweida Obo is proposing the chopping off of the genitals of men who rape underage girls.

Speaking at an event in Hindi, Lamu County on Friday, April 12, Ms Obo said punishment equal to the trauma rapists are subjecting their victims to should be introduced.

“When a suspect is found guilty of rape and sentenced to 10 years in jail, that punishment is not commensurate to the amount of destruction that rapist would have done to a minor. The victim’s life would, thereafter, be completely ruined. I am asking for those genitals [of rapists] to be chopped off. And, [as a lawmaker], I would ensure that laws to allow the chopping off of rapists’ manhood is introduced,” said Ms Obo.
