14 August 2013, 16:02
A warrant of arrest has been issued against a police constable accused of sodomising a 6-year-old boy last month at Kerugoya police station.
The warrant was issued on Wednesday morning by a Wanguru court after the officer refused to appear before the court as directed by his seniors.
According to Kirinyaga central police boss Njuguna Kamau, the officer disappeared from police line and effort to trace him has not born any fruits so far.
The police boss also revealed that the disgraceful police officer has been interdicted and he’s no longer in the police service.
“I can now confirm that the officer has been interdicted and he must clear his name before the court of law before he’s reinstated,” He pointed.
Kamau revealed that the regular police constable attached to Kerugoya police station was expected to appear before Wanguru court to answer to charges of defiling the minor and engaging in an unnatural act.
He pointed that he was out after being released on cash bail of 20,000 shillings to await the outcome of the police inquiry instituted to investigate the allegations.
The inquiry that was headed by local CID boss confirmed that the officer actually sodomised the boy and threatened to kill him if he reported the matter to his parents.
When the matter came before the court, the officer was nowhere to be found and effort to get him through his cell phone was unsuccessful.
“We tried to reach him through his phone but it was switched off and he was nowhere to be found; we suspect he has decided to run away but I promise we are determined to bring him to book,” said the police boss.
The inquiry according to the investigators found the constable culpable and recommended for his prosecution and interdiction according to the police service standing orders.
The officer Nuro Hamis was also accused of defiling a 12-year-old girl three months ago but he was discharged by a Kerugoya court due to lack of evidence.
The officer was accused of defiling the girl and threatening to kill her with a gun in his house at Kerugoya police station.
The OCPD termed the officer as a disgrace to the police service pointing that such individuals are responsible for the bad image police service is associated with.
