Mamos Media

More than half of women in Kenya have experienced gender-based violence on public transport, according to a recent study. In 2014, there were national protests after a woman was allegedly stripped on a public bus in Nairobi.

Anita Nderu is a television and radio presenter based in the city, who says she was groped while travelling on a bus.

She hopes that sharing a story will help other women to come forward.
