Samburu teacher charged with defiling a 12 year old pupil acquitted

A teacher who had been charged with defilement of a 12 year-old-girl at Milimani primary school in Samburu central sub county on unknown date and time between April28, 2017 and October22, 2017 has been acquitted by a Maralal court in Samburu county due to lack of a satisfactory evidence.

While reading his judgment on Tuesday evening, Senior Resident Magistrate Abraham Gachie said that, as per the evidence on record, in his view prosecution was unable to prove the charges of defilement and committing an indecent act with a minor in the first and alternative counts respectively against the accused person Mr Dominic Bosire to the standards required in law.

“The accused person is therefore not guilty as charged and I hereby acquit him as charged in the main count and the alternative count here in pursuant to the provisions of section 215 of the criminal procedure cord,” he said.

While reading his judgment, Senior Resident Magistrate Abraham Gachie explained that the prosecution failed to prove that Mr Bosire defiled the girl and made her pregnant.

“What would have cleared doubts was a DNA examination of PW1’s child and the accused person as had been sought by the prosecution. The prosecution never availed the DNA results and the accused person stated that he was never subjected to a DNA examination,” he explained.

Gachie further said that the minor’s evidence contradicted to the one that was testified in court by a clinical officer who examined her at Samburu county referral hospital.

“Further doubts are created by the PW1’s evidence that defilement took place on 5thday after they opened the schools on August28, 2017 and again four days later. That is on September2, 2017 and September6, 2017. This evidence was contradicted by the clinical officer who gave evidence that conception took place within the month of August 2017,”

The magistrate said that the prosecution failed to prove the complainant’s age with documentary evidence in court.

“PW1 gave evidence that she was 12 years old. However no conclusive evidence was tendered to prove her age, the birth certificate was not produced as an exhibit. From the evidence on record the age of the minor is not clear,” he explained.

100 boys from poor families benefit from free circumcision in Samburu

A hundred and twenty boys from poor families in Samburu County have undergone free and voluntary circumcision at Uhuru Academy in Maralal town Samburu County.

The initiative, which targeted boys from all communities living in the county, is aimed at reducing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases  (STDs) in the region.

“According to a research that was done, male circumcision reduces the rate of STDs especially HIV infection by 65 per cent,” said John Ekiao who is a doctor at Samburu county referral hospital.

Shades of hope Samburu, a local NGO operating in the county has been sponsoring the program at the end of each year for the last twelve years, a move that has seen a total 9000 boys and men get circumcised at no cost.

The organisation’s founder and director, who is also an MCA representing Maralal town ward Fred Kiragu said the program was being used to discourage cattle rustling, unite communities, nurture peace and cohesion across the county.

“When youths from different communities that are hostile at each other meet here for a month after a joint circumcision, it brings and yields friendship, cohesion and this helps us to fight cattle rustling,” Mr Kiragu said.

The beneficiaries are being trained life skills and on the importance of peaceful coexistence as well as pursuing education, a situation that has persuaded some of them to make a decision of joining primary and secondary schools to continue with education from where they had left.

“Even though I have never gone to school but I will go to school from here following a training session we have been given,” said Pasaka Lekarpes, a beneficiary.

Lekarpes discouraged his peers against cattle rustling and instead challenged them to join learning institutions to acquire education that would help them transform their lives for better.

According to some of the beneficiaries, they wouldn’t have undergone rite of passage this year if it were not for the program since their families are not financially stable to cater for their circumcision bills in health facilities.

Police In Samburu Investigating An Incident Where A Minor Was Forced To Undergo FGM By Her Parent

Police in Samburu County are investigating an incident in which a 14 year old girl was reportedly forced to under Female Genital Mutilation by her parent at Nga’ri village in Samburu central sub county.

The victim who had sat for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) this year told journalists that her mother forced her to undergo the painful cultural practice.

“My mum had told me about it, they woke me up at 3 am and forced me through the painful act, i am in lots of pain now,” said the shaken minor at Maralal police station.

Samburu county police Commander Alfred Agengo confirmed the incident saying that police have already launched the investigations into the incident with an aim of apprehending suspects.

He urged communities that are still practicing FGM in the region to abandon as the harmful cultural practice has been outlawed.

“This tradition has been passed by events, it is unlawful. It is a social and a health problem because it affects a child emotionally and this might interfere with her education,” said Agengo.

Agengo said that the girl will be taken to a rescue centre away from any suspects so that she can help the police with investigations

Paskalina Naibash, a staff at Samburu Girls Foundation said incidences of FGM have greatly increased in the county especially during this December holiday.

She warned parents that whoever that will be found forcing FGM on their children will not escape legal punishment as per the law.

60 Injured In a Road Accident While Travelling To a Political Rally In Samburu

Sixty people were on Saturday morning injured in a road accident at Nomotio area along Baragoi-Maralal road in Samburu central sub-county.

The victims were traveling in a lorry from Nomotio to Ng’ari area, about ten kilometers away for a political rally when the accident occurred.

Joseph Longu’on, a victim said the driver lost control when he approached a corner after driving for two kilometers from a place where they had boarded the vehicle.

“The vehicle was being driven at a high speed when we approached a sharp corner. The vehicle veered off the road and fell in a ditch after the driver failed to control the vehicle,” he said.

A number of passengers were rushed to Samburu County Referral hospital with serious injuries where they have been admitted in two wards and receiving treatment.

Joseph Lesilele, a resident of Nomotio said the morning journey caught residents by surprise in their homes.

“People were busy in their farms, they had to abandon what they were doing after a lorry approached abruptly asking them to attend a political rally,” he said.

Lesila said most victims of the accident victims are poor and don’t have NHIF cards urging his village mates to shun following politicians for handouts.

“Let politicians look for you at your homes because you are the ones who have votes,” he urged.

Efforts to reach police for a comment were in futile as Maralal OCPD Abagarro Guyo had traveled to Nairobi on official duties and County Police Commander Alfred Agengo was not responding to our phone calls.
