Eleven petitioners, who were survivors of defilement, child abuse, and other forms of sexual violence, brought a petition before the High Court at Meru against Kenyan law enforcement agencies. They alleged that the police had failed to effectively investigate their complaints and take the necessary action, which would have brought the perpetrators to account for their unlawful acts. They based their petition on diverse national and international laws, including the Constitution of Kenya 2010, the Sexual Offences Act 2006, the Police Act of the Laws of Kenya, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
