Police have located a missing schoolgirl in Ndeiya, Kiambu County, after a week-long search. She was living with an older man, according to the local chief and police. During the arrest, Firidah Muema, the gender department officer at the Tigoni police station, voiced her worry over the increased occurrence of child defilement in the area. "At least two incidents of defilement are reported every week. It's unfortunate that the men who should typically defend society – particularly women – are the culprits," Ms. Muema remarked.
The quest for the Nguirubi High School girl had frightened the villagers until Leah, the Ndeiya sub-chief, learned about the girl's hiding place with a 42-year-old man and contacted the police. Officers from the Ndeiya police station staged an ambush at the man's milk stand in the Boma shopping mall. Following his arrest, authorities learned that the girl had gone to the Ndeiya health center for medical treatment.
At the health center, police set up a new ambush and arrested the girl. They were transported to the Ndeiya police station, where authorities and the girl's parents discovered she was pregnant and had been to the clinic for a prenatal check-up. Then, Ms. Nguhi, who led a team of officers to the guy's arrest, expressed her sadness that the man, who is the girl's neighbor, would perform such a trick and plunge the entire village into misery and dishonor.
"I implore men to refrain from preying on young women in schools. This vice has no respectability. The man is older than the girl, and she has no chance of surviving his attack. "He's preying on the girl's naivety," the sub-chief explained. The man was arrested and transferred to Tigoni Police Station, where he will be interrogated and arraigned on Monday in Limuru. At the same police station, the girl was turned over to the gender desk. She will be subjected to a medical examination, which will be used by officers to compile a report to be presented in the courtroom.
