Mentally ill boy sodomized in Nyeri

29 August 2013, 14:26 Wangui Joseph

Nyeri - A 15-year-old mentally ill boy was admitted at Nyeri Provincial General Hospital after he was allegedly sodomized by an unknown person on Wednesday night.

Speaking to the media in Nyeri town near Majengo slums, the boy said the ordeal was committed by a man armed with a knife who was threatening to stab him if he attempted to raise alarm or decline to follow his orders.

“I was sleeping here when a man came armed with a knife and threatened to stab me if I scream or refuse to stay calm as he defiled me,” said the mentally disturbed minor.

The minor, reportedly from Thunguma Rehabilitation Centre had escaped the institution, and was sleeping at the roadside a few meters from the hospital.

The assailant left the helpless boy naked, sleeping on a heap of saw dust before he was discovered by a nearby chemist operator.  

The area chief said he will be taken back to the rehabilitation centre and will seek explanations on why the minor had escaped.

The county deputy commissioner John Marete condemned the incident and said investigations into the incident had began. He also urged members of the public to report on any suspicious activities in the area.
