October 20, 2015: Shelters for Battered Females Are Scarce in Kenya, But One Woman’s Group Works to ‘Rescue a Sister’

Retraction: This story was removed from our site after serious questions were raised about the facts originally presented by local sources. On Mon., Oct. 26 Global Press Journal began an in-depth investigation into the ownership and legal status of a domestic violence shelter originally featured in this story after an online group in Kenya suggested the lead source misrepresented herself as the owner. In the two weeks since our investigation began, none of the original sources in this story, nor the people questioning the veracity of the original source’s claims, have been able to provide proof of ownership of the shelter. A search was conducted on Fri., Oct. 30 at the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Services, where such organizations are generally registered. The clerk conducting the search said that no organizations, domestic violence shelters or otherwise, were listed by the name originally provided to Global Press Journal. The ownership of the shelter featured in this original story, as well as that shelter’s legal status, remain unclear. The investigation is ongoing. The article has been replaced with an in-depth blog about how the error occurred and how we are re-doubling efforts to ensure nothing like this happens again. Global Press Journal deeply regrets this error.

The Kenya Wildlife Trust does not support compensation or consolation schemes. The article has been update Global Press Journal regrets this error.
