dc.description.abstract This article presents an analysis of post-trial procedure in child sexual abuse (CSA) cases and the effect of giving evidence by child victims of sexual abuse in Kenya. The paper is presented under the following headings: post testimony effects of the trial on child victims of sexual abuse (CVSA), court orders to protect CVSA after their testimony, concerns about CVSA safety and welfare after their testimony and some strengths of CSA trial procedure in Kenya. The analysis concludes that the Kenyan post-trial procedure lacks mechanisms of protecting CVSA and therefore leaves them more traumatized than before they testified. The paper recommends various measures to protect CVSA after they testify in court. en_US
