Mombasa - The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Keriako Tobiko has directed the OCS Changamwe police station to explain why there was a delay in charging a chief suspected to have forced a 10-year-old boy to engage in oral sex with him.
In a letter dated January 26, 2015 through the senior state prosecutor Alexander Muteti, Tobiko said he was shocked by the allegations involving Bomu Ward assistant chief, Mohammed Abdullah Nyando.
The assistant chief is alleged to have forced the boy to perform oral sex after he was handed over to him by Bomu primary school headteacher for corporal punishment on September 2, 2014 in the chief’s office located inside the school compound.
“The alleged incident is shocking and disturbing. It’s wrong for a public officer to engage in such an act,” stated Tobiko in the letter.
Muteti has recalled the police file and directed the Changamwe CID boss to commence investigating Nyando.
Muteti said they had received a letter from Muhuri lobby group saying that the investigation against the state officer had been delayed.
A government laboratory report confirmed that the DNA report on semen recovered from the boy's sweater has been received by the police after two months' wait in Nairobi.

Samples obtained from the public officer matched the semen that was collected on the sweater of the boy.
The guardian of the boy said the minor had stopped attending school because of the trauma he suffered.
According the guardians of the boy, he was in a group of four boys who were found selling an alleged stolen phone at school.
The chief is said to have punished the boys before ordering the minor to go back to his office where he forced him to engaged in the act.
However, Nyando denied the allegations saying he was a married man with three children.
“Am a parent with three kids; I cannot engage in such an evil act,” said Nyando.
