Under age girl raped, impregnated by uncle

20 September 2016, 19:59

Nairobi - A 16 year old girl is living in agony after she was raped by two of her close male relatives in Nakuru.

The girl who was a form one student at a Nakuru High School has narrated how she was drugged by her uncle, identified as John, whom she was living with in Rhonda Estate of Nakuru town.

“While my aunt was attending a church conference, my uncle whom I was left with gave me a spiked Afya juice. It was when I woke up I realized he had raped me.” Mary (not her real name) narrated.

Mary confronted the uncle who pleaded for forgiveness saying he was not in his senses when he committed the act on February this year.

After a few months  the minor realized she was pregnant and informed the uncle who urged her to terminate the pregnancy.

“I told him I was pregnant and he promised to support me. Days later he gave me Sh1,000 to buy Quencher juice and drink without diluting it. I did not manage to drink it.” She added.

Her situation worsened when she returned to her home where she was living with her mother and a stepfather who made similar advances to her.

The stepfather John Gathigi, asked the minor to marry him since her mother, Joyce Waithera, had not bore him any children.

The Mother, Waithera, narrated how the second suspect continuously nagged and made her daughter give in to his advances and rented her a house behind her back.

She added that Gathigi threatened to kill her, her daughter and himself, if he finds them in a relationship with other men, matter which they reported to Kiugu Police station.

Priscilla Gitau, a social worker attached to Kagoto PCEA church realized the discomfort the girl had and followed the story.

They later recorded a statement at Rhonda Police station but and are now shocked to see that the two suspects are still roaming freely. Efforts to speak to the OCS in charge of the police station bore no fruits.
