Man ac­cused of de­fil­ing tod­dler in Nanyuki ar­rested

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

A one-and-a-half year old girl is ad­mit­ted at the Nanyuki Teach­ing and Re­fer­ral Hospi­tal af­ter she was al­legedly de­filed by her mother’s boyfriend.

Dr Kabochi Iladivo, a pae­di­a­tri­cian, said the girl was se­ri­ously in­jured.

The mother said the man who de­filed her daugh­ter in Likii vil­lage is a night guard.

She said the man came home drunk on Wed­nes­day morn­ing and ac­cused her of in­fi­delity.

The wo­man said they ar­gued and she left house to go to a nearby shop to buy veg­eta­bles.

When she re­turned, she found the man fast asleep, but the girl was writhing in pain.

The wo­man ex­am­ined the girl and found blood stains on her un­der­pants. “I re­moved the girl’s trousers and un­der­gar­ments only to find she was bleed­ing and with fresh wounds in her pri­vate parts. I re­alised the man had de­filed my child,” the mother-of-two said.

She re­ported the mat­ter to Nanyuki po­lice sta­tion and the man, who she said they have been liv­ing with for five months, was ar­rested.

Iladivo said the girl is in sta­ble con­di­tion and the hospi­tal is coun­selling the mother.
