Father Of Six Arrested For Allegedly Defiling His Two Daughters For A Period Of Three Years

A father of six has been arrested in Kinangop for allegedly sexually abusing his two daughters for a period of three years.

The farmer who is been held in Ndunyu Njeru police station was arrested on Monday in his home in Mikaro village following a tip off by some family members.

This came as details emerged that the suspect would threaten the minors with unspecified action if they told anyone what was going on at home.

According to a resident Simon Muraya, the minors had on several occasions complained to classmates at school of the ordeal they were going through at home with little assistance.

Muraya said in the recent incidence, the two complained and when the teachers found out and reported the matter, the suspect transferred them to another school warning them with dire consequences if they reported again.

“They have been living in fear for that long but his proverbial days have come and he will have to spend the next part of life in jail,” he said.

Muraya noted that cases of sexual harassment among school going children in the area was rife with close relatives being part of the abuse.

Area chief Magdalene Kariuki confirmed the incidence saying the suspect was being held at Ndunyu Ndunyu police station and will be arraigned in court once investigations are through.

“The two minors have been taken to hospital where tests will be conducted to ascertain whether they were abused before the suspect is taken to court,” she said.

Meanwhile shock and disbelief gripped residents of a Naivasha estate after a new born baby was found dumped by the road side in the area.

Residents heading to work in the morning found the baby near the Naivasha law courts with many questioning the motive.

According to a resident Magdalene Wanja, the residents were alerted by screams from the infant who was hidden in a bag and on checking found she was alive.

She said that there were indications that the suspect gave birth on the scene before leaving the minor and fleeing to unknown place.

“We took the minor Naivasha sub county hospital where he is recuperating and we are asking members of the public to report any woman who may have delivered but does not have the baby,” she said.
