Over 100 girls defiled in Webuye this year

22 October 2015, 09:11 Ben Wafula

Webuye - Over 100 underage girls in Webuye West and East constituencies have been defiled since the beginning of this year.

Bungoma East Deputy County Commissioner, Khalif Abdulahi said the number of young school children being defiled has increased in Webuye region owing to negligence by both parents and guardians.

Speaking in his office, Abdulahi said that children aged between six and seventeen years have reportedly been defiled by their neighbors, relatives, boda boda operators and shockingly teachers.

“This statistics are shocking because we are leading in defilement cases in Western region; this is because of the don’t-care attitude by  parents and guardians. We want parents to be held accountable for any defilement case that will be reported to our offices,” said Abdulahi.

The Deputy Commissioner said that some of the cases are still pending in Webuye law court and are yet to be determined.

‘We are worried by the trend in which this cases are being reported every now and then where some are even minors who are defiled by their fathers,’’ he said.

Abdulahi said that the incidents in the sub county are impacting negatively on the education of the victims and appealed to parents to take care of their underage daughters to stop such incidences.

He appealed to residents of Bungoma East to respect young girls and stop spoiling their lives.

Abdulahi cautioned members of the public who are perpetrating the vice to stop or else the law will catch up with them.

He warned Chiefs and other local leaders to stop engaging in Kangaroo courts to iron out issues between the suspects and the victims.

“If you are found negotiating with defilement suspects and victims' parents out of court you will be sacked. We cannot tolerate corrupt officers in our systems,” he said.

He said defilement cases should be reported to Chiefs, their assistants and the police for action to be taken and perpetrators prosecuted to deter the menace.
