Nakuru - Police in Njoro sub-county have launched a manhunt for a Njoro University main campus student for allegedly defiling an eight-year-old class two pupil.
The suspect, according to the girl’s grandmother, was well known to the girl and realizing that the victim’s mother was away for a burial in Kakamega, tricked the girl by telling her that he wanted to collect her mother's national identification card that she had forgotten.
“Since the girl knew him, she opened the door but the suspect turned to the girl and defiled her severally threatening to kill her if she attempted to disclose the heinous act,” said the girl’s grandmother.
Speaking to the media in Njoro, the grandmother said the girl kept quiet since the incident on Thursday, but on Sunday evening she complained that she was experiencing pain during short calls, prompting her to probe her.
The girl disclosed that she had been defiled, prompting her and the girl’s mother to take her to the nearest health centre where she was examined. The nurses realized the seriousness of the damage done on her and transferred her to the provincial hospital in Nakuru town, where she was treated and later recorded a statement at the Njoro Police Division.
