KENYA – A police officer in Busia County has been disarmed, arrested and placed into mandatory quarantine after he was found raping a COVID-19 patient.
The cop was one of two police officers and three wardens from Busia prison stationed to guard the Agricultural Training Centre, an isolation facility set aside by the Ministry of Health for coronavirus patients.
According to a police report seen by Citizen Digital, one of the officers on routine patrol at the facility on Thursday night noticed the suspect âengaging a patientâ and became uncomfortable hence went back to the guard room.
He then narrated to his colleagues what he had witnessed and they became suspicious but, upon going to check on the suspect and the patient, they did not find them.
They hence started looking around the facility and, at about a little past midnight, they reportedly heard a commotion coming from the womenâs ward.
The officers, upon rushing there, found all the other patients outside âcomplaining that the prison officer was raping the said lady patient.â
Health officers were summoned to the scene and the officer was disarmed by senior colleagues from Busia Prison before being quarantined within the same facility.
