Embu - An Anglican Reverend belonging to the Embu Diocese was arrested after sexually assaulting his 7-year old niece.

According to Citizen TV the 37-year old pastor appeared before Principal Magistrate Robinson Oigara.

He has since denied the allegations against him.

The accused lawyer said the chargers should be dropped as he has a family to support and called for the court to provide them with evidence of the alleged crime.

After neighbours reported the incident the minor was taken to the hospital for examination where it was confirmed that she had been sexually violated.
