27 June 2014, 08:40 Ken Laban

Kakamega - Police have launched a manhunt for a 73-year-old man who allegedly raped a 6-year-old child in Kakamega County.

Kakamega County Police Commander Warui Manegene confirmed the incident and said the suspect identified as Laban Mukabwa molested the standard four pupil on Monday evening.

“Medical reports indicate that the girl was sexually molested and we have launched a manhunt for the accused. We promise to leave no stone unturned until we arrest him and arraign him in court in accordance with the law,” Warui said.

He urged parents to be careful with their children to avoid such cases.

“Reports of rape cases are on the rise in this region and we humbly advise parents to ensure they leave their children under the care of trustworthy, honest and responsible people. We should work together to eliminate this evil vice,” he said.

According to the minor, the man who is their immediate neighbour sent her to buy a match box and when she returned, he forcefully pushed her into his house and raped her.            

"He tore my dress and raped me before pushing me out of the house and threatened to kill me if I informed anyone,” the minor said.

Titus Okello, the father to the victim said he realized that her daughter was raped when she complained to her mother that she was feeling pain when she went for a short call.

Upon checking her, they realized she had ruptured and swollen private parts an indication she had been molested.

“Though we suspected she had been raped, we rushed her to hospital to confirm our worries and the nurses confirmed our suspicion. She later informed us who the culprit was he managed to escape before we arrested him,” said Okello.

The victim is now recuperating at Kakamega County General Hospital.
