A Census enumerator was gang raped and robbed in Maseno, Kisumu West by unknown attackers. The police say she was attacked after being dropped home by her supervisor. 

According to Police commander, Dr. Makhoha, the woman was attacked outside her gate after she had been dropped off by her supervisor after completion of the exercise.

Dr. Vincent Makhoha said a hunt has since been launched for the attackers.

He further addressed that the County Statistics Department has been ordered to immediately suspend the supervisor who dropped the woman due to negligence.

The government had previously assured Kenyans and the census officials of a smooth and secure process following the deployment of police officers in various parts of the country.

The supervisor as well as police officers who were deployed in the area to offer security for the census team have since been summoned to record statements with the police in Maseno who are probing the incident.

The victim is currently seeking treatment.
