An Eldoret court on Tuesday, December 20 issued death sentence to a male boda boda operator who robbed and raped a female university student in July 20, 2013 in Eldoret Town.
The court heard that Nixon Andayi robbed his 21-year-old victim of a laptop, cell phone and KSh150 before raping her at a field in Eldoret Town two years ago.
The victim had sought Nixon Andayi’s transport services and had directed him to take her to her residence in West Indies Estate in Eldoret, when the boda boda rider diverted and took her to an open field, where he robbed and raped her.
Judge Charles Obulutsa said that the prosecution proved their case beyond reasonable doubt that Nixon Andayi indeed raped the 21-year-old university student.
Andayi has 14 days to appeal the sentence.
