The minor had told the court that her drunk father dragged the little girl to his bedroom where he committed the heinous act and threatened to harm her if she dared to tell her mother about it.

She told the grandmother the following morning who in turn reported to the police.

The police intercepted the man on January 15, 2014 before he was charged at a Nakuru court.

A senior doctor who testified in the case told the court that the girl had injuries in her genitals and tested positive for HIV.
