maximum of hash penalties.

In Kenya sexual offences occurs daily

with several reported cases being genuine and

half of them being manufactured by the Victims

themselves, and that has been proved within

the corridors of judiciary by the Victims through their

after thought testimonies.

Due to this ongoing rampant mischievous

habits resulting to innocent Kenyans

unnecessarily being convicted on alleged manufactured

flimsy accusations on serious offences of rape,

defilement, sodomy and attempted sexual

offences which majority deny they are not aware of

and have never committed, the Sheria Mtaani legal office

located along Juja Road Nairobi County at the Sprawling

slum of Mathare Nairobi County Kenya filed an application

before the High Court seeking an order compelling

adherence on fair representations when accused are

prosecuted with sexual offences where in

most cases are rushed by the State in prosecuting.
