27 October 2015, 08:13 John Kioko

Kwale - A class eight candidate at Kwale primary school might sit for his examination in  remand after he allegedly defiled a four-year-old minor.

The 13-year-old suspect, Jackson Mbatu, son to an administration police sergeant at Kwale, denied the charges before Kwale principal magistrate Cosmas Maundu on Monday.

He was accused of defiling a minor contrary to section 8 (1) of the sexual offence act number 3 of 2006.

Mbatu was charged that on October 23 at the Kwale administration camp in Golini location, he unlawfully and intentionally committed the offence.

The suspect is also facing alternative charge of indecent act contrary to section 11 (1) of the sexual act number 3 of 2006.

“He unlawfully and intentionally touched private parts of the minor,” heard the court.

It is alleged that the suspect was playing with the minor when he lured her into sex before the parents of the complainant got information and reported the matter to Kwale police station.

The victim was taken to hospital for medical checkups immediately.

After his arrest, his parents did not go to court for follow up.

Only the complainant’s parents were in the court when the suspect took plea.

He was ordered to pay KES 50 000 bond and surety of the same amount or cash bail of KES 20 000.

“Meanwhile, the suspect will be held at Likoni children home as the case continues,” he said in his judgment.

The case will come up for hearing on November 2.
