Rodgers Ouma, an officer who was attached to the Lamu Police Station has been sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a woman.

The woman had gone to report a case at the police station when the 28-year-old man raped her.

“He will also serve 10 years for abuse of authority and pay Ksh. 400,000 damages to the victim,”a statement from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) reads.

The court found that the Prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

The Lamu cop Rodgers Ouma had lured the 26-year-old woman to his house at Langoni Police Lines in December 2019.

She had gone to report that her husband was forcing her to take abortion pills to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.

The woman had braved the rains and was on her way home when somebody stopped her.

The person identified himself as Police Officer Ouma from the Lamu station, perused through her complaint, got her mobile number and said he was willing to help.

“…the woman trusted the officer as a person in authority, genuinely willing to follow the case. The officer asked that they walk together as they were going in same direction. He offered her shelter for rains to subside,” the ODPP said.
