Police officers in Eldoret are being accused of interfering with a case involving a 40-year-old man who allegedly defiled his daughter a few weeks ago.
According to People Daily Newspaper this Monday, the police are in one way or another, delaying justice for the teen.
Ms Shollei raised questions about why the suspect was not taking a plea yet medical reports had already been filled. She accused the officers of slowing down investigations into the matter despite a medical report being ready.
“The medical report is already out. Why hasn’t the suspect taken a plea? They are saying that they are waiting for a prosecutor to interview the child. This is illegal because this is the work of the police,” said Ms Shollei as reported by the newspaper.
“This is why defilement cases are not responded because people get frustrated,” she added.
The school which the girl studies is also on the spot for allegedly not reporting the defilement incident to police on time. The suspect works at the school.
