Family in quest for justice for defiled child

By KBC Reporters

A family in Kitengela Township is seeking justice for their four year old daughter who was allegedly defiled by a neighbor.

The family claims that attempts to get justice from regional authorities have proved futile and blames police officers at Kitenglea police station for laxity and refusal to apprehend the suspect.

The mother of the minor said her daughter was defiled when she left to run an errand.

She is now calling on the police to begin investigations into incident and have the suspect apprehended.

The girl was defiled by a person well known to her family and the fact that the accused is still roaming freely is a pain the mother says is unable to live with.

A Medical report from Nairobi Women’s Hospital in Kitengela indicates that the girl was defiled and is currently under medication.

And in Machakos County a senior Inspectorate Officer was arraigned in a Machakos Court to answer charges of defilement filed against him.

Paul Mutunga alias Kidawa appeared before Resident Magistrate Irene Kauya but did not take plea after the police asked for more time to complete their investigations.

The Court ruled that the accused person be detained at Machakos Police station for three more days to allow the police complete investigations.

The officer is alleged to have committed the offence on July 22 at his official residence at Machakos Level 5 Hospital.

He was arrested on Monday evening after the case was reported to the police by family members who had noticed a two day unusual bleeding by the 17 year old girl.

There was drama at the Court when angry members of public who had attended court to follow the proceedings started baying for the officer’s blood.

The police had to whisk the officer away from the angry mob who had even tried to block the police car

He will now remain in police custody until July 29 when the case will be mentioned again in court.
