Witchdoctor defiles epileptic girl during seizure

20 January 2015, 22:59 John Kioko

Kwale - Police Officers in Kwale County have launched a hunt for a 50-years old witchdoctor who allegedly defiled a minor at Maganyakulo area in Matuga sub-county within Kwale County.

The witchdoctor, identified as Juma Mwiya, defiled the 14-year-old girl as she waited to receive epilepsy medication on Sunday morning.

The girl was in the company of her grandmother, Mwanamisi  Mwambindo when the incident occurred.

“My granddaughter has been suffering from epilepsy for the last four years and when I heard that there was a witchdoctor who could treat it using herbs I decided to take her for treatment. On reaching there, she had a seizure and Mwiya told me to get out of the room so he could administer treatment only to take advantage of her,” Mwambindo said.

She added that after about an hour, Mwiya the witchdoctor came out of the room saying they should leave the minor to sleep a bit and relax for the treatment to work in her.

“The witchdoctor claimed that he was going to the shop and when I saw that my granddaughter was not coming out of the room, I decided to go and check on her. I found blood all over her clothes,” she lamented.

She raised alarm and members of the public who came to her rescue took the minor to Kwale hospital for treatment.

Confirming the incident, the Kwale OCPD Patrick Oduma said that the P3 form has already been filled and police have also visited the scene of the incident.

“We obtained some documents from the witchdoctor’s residence that will assist us to get hold of him therefore investigations are still on,” Oduma said.
