Pastor on the run after raping girl, 8

17 July 2013, 11:40 Dareel Eric

An elderly clergy at Chanzeywe village in Mungoma location, Vihiga County, is on the run after he discovered that the police were hunting him for rape allegations.

Haman Amoi, 60, raped the minor on Monday night in a maize plantation and immediately went into hiding.

The 8-year-old was rushed to Vihiga health centre by the police from Mahanga administration police post.

The young girl is a neighbour to the pastor, and her mother is a single parent living in a rental house.  

Confirming the incident, Mungoma location chief Aderi Adaro said that the residents realised that the child was being raped when a young boy, 10, leaked the information.

“When the people checked, they found her bleeding profusely and took her to the AP post for further action,” he said.

The girl positively identified that it was the pastor who raped her. The boy who witnessed the ordeal and has recorded a statement with the police, also confirmed that it was the pastor who committed the offence.

The chief condemned the beastly act and warned the residents who will be found prowling on the young kids that they will face the full force of the law.  

“Those who will be found performing the beastly act should know that the law will not favour them at all,” he cautioned.
