A bill seeking to have rapists castrated has been opposed by activists.
Maendelo ya Wanawake chairperson Rahab Mwikali said the county assembly should not rush to make such a law.
“I understand — as a mother — that feeling of wishing to castrate the offender but we have to look at it on a case-by-case basis to determine the kind of punishment to be meted,” she said.
Mr Nderitu Njoka of Maendeleo ya Wanaume said only “weird male” leaders could propose such a Bill.
He said both boys and girls were victims of defilement, hence it was unfair to make laws targeting one gender.
“If we want to castrate men, then also put a law cutting off the breasts of women who defile our young boys,” he said.
