Women raise red flag over increased cases of child assault

11 December 2014, 15:41 Jackson Okata

Naivasha - Women groups in Naivasha town have raised red flag over increased cases of child sexual assault.

Speaking when they presented a petition to the Naivasha police boss, the Naivasha women groups’ forum said that the trend is worrying and called on the police to take action against the culprits.

Chairperson of the forum, Esther Nyambura said that they are worried because assault cases have been increasing recently but the culprits go scot free.

She said that the culprits have been targeting underage schoolgirls in the town especially in the evenings and at night.

“We want to come out and strongly speak against such evil animals that have been doing this to our young girls. It is sad that the criminals who have been targeting children as young as five are still walking freely in the town,” said Nyambura.

“Most parents are now worried because they can’t leave their young girls behind. We want the police to do all they can to deal with these 'animals’," she added.

Nyambura called on residents of Naivasha to help the police in apprehending the criminals by providing information to the police.

Naivasha deputy police boss, Agnes Amojong promised the women that she will work with them to ensure that the girl child is protected.

“I want to assure you that I share the same concerns with you and as a woman, I will do my best together with my officers to ensure that your young girls are protected,” she said.
