Brothers arrested for defiling three-year-old niece

27 November 2014, 16:11 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Police in Karatina, Nyeri County arrested two brothers who allegedly defiled their three-year-old niece in turns.

The two suspects, who are Form Two students at a local high school, are also said to have attempted to sodomize the girl’s younger brother who is about two years old.

The two minors are admitted at Karatina District hospital while the incident occurred at Githima village in Mathira East sub-County.

The hospital’s medical superintendent Doctor David Ndegwa said the girl had bruises on her private parts, was weak and was bleeding.

“The girl had lost 5.9 pints of blood when she was brought to hospital. We took specimen from both patients to verify the defilement allegations and we confirmed that the girl was actually defiled and there was attempted sodomy in the boy. However, they were not able to penetrate the boy but he had swollen,” said the doctor.

The minors’ mother said she had separated with her husband for one month after her mother-in-law advised the man to dump her because she is not from his ethnic community.

“I went to Kisii where I come from leaving behind my children with their grandmother. Later I strongly felt that I need them and that was when I came back here on Monday,” said the wailing woman.

On arrival at Githima village she found the two suspects with the minors in a room, which was locked from inside and very loud music.

The suspects said that they wanted to teach the woman a lesson.

“I asked them to open the door and they refused. I stayed out for more than four hours and finally asked neighbours to help me get my children who are locked in one of the houses. We did not find the suspects but found my daughter lying unconsciously on mat full of blood.

Later she heard my voice and begun shouting mum where are you. She had lost sight and had defecated on that mat,” said the woman while blaming her mother-in-law for the incident.

Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s wife, Margret Nderitu visited the minor at the hospital while accompanied by a group of women from Maendeleo ya Wanawake organization.

They condemned the incident and asked the government issue a stiff punishment against the young men stating that they should not be released back to the community to safeguard other girls’ lives.
