It was sombre in Kisumu's Kondele Social Justice Center in Kisumu as residents wept and shared heart-rending tales of police rape, beatings and torture during the 2017 post-election violence. Later in the week she met other women rape survivors and together they reported at the Central police station. The survivors said they have abandoned hope of justice and said they have seen no benefits of the handshake. The groups include Kondele Community Social Justice Centre, Muslims for Human Rights, Women Concern Center, Transform Empowerment for Action Initiative (TEAM) and Kisumu City Residents' Voice. They also intend to seek compensation and damages for rape, beatings, torture and killings of innocent Kisumu residents.
