Influence of Slum Settlements on Rape Crimes during And After General Elections In Kenya: A Case Study Of Kaptembwa, Nakuru County between 2007-2017

Abstract:

The study sought to examine the influence of slum settlements on rape crimes during and after general elections in Kenya: a case study of Kaptembwa, Nakuru County between 2007-2017. The study focused on the following research questions: to investigate the link between the occurrence of rape and election in Kenya; to investigate the link between slums and rape crimes in Kaptembwa, Nakuru County during elections; and to assess remedies to the prevention of rape during elections. The target population of this study was the 13 community based organisations initiated to help rape victims and make a difference to those who are forgotten in the slums of Kaptembwa in Nakuru County. Panel data for a period of 10 years (2007-2017) was gathered from the County Government of Nakuru, World Values Surveys, UN records, National Government Records, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) records. To corroborate the findings from the secondary data, primary data was collected from community based organisations dealing with rape victims in Kaptembwa using a questionnaire. Information was dissected utilizing Descriptive Analysis, Pearson's Simple Correlation Analysis and Panel Regression Analyses. The outcomes acquired from the model was presented in tables to help in elucidation and straightforwardness with which the inferential measurements will be drawn. The findings shows that rape crimes in Kaptembwa slums is significant and positively correlated with income inequality, unemployment, political competition, and negative ethnicity. Political tribalism has been identified as the major contributor to negative ethnicity in Kenya that weakens the nation state project, patriotism, democratization and governance in the country. Poverty, unemployment and marginalisation have been identified as the key causes of slums. The study concludes that majority of the productive individuals in the society (the youth) in slums are idle and jobless which goes to mean that rape crimes and other forms of crime will continue rising if the trend is constant in the future. The study has also concluded that Government lies with the key responsibility in helping to reduce rape crime incidences in Kaptembwa village. The study recommends people who have migrated into the slums to stop retaining their identities at various levels and stop seeing themselves as having something in common among them. The study recommends government to ensure equality in development to reduce slum settlements.
