Rape Obscene

Update of 8-Year-Old Girl Who Was Repeatedly Raped by Her Dad, Forced to be Mother to Her Sisters

Lynn Ngugi the online journalist covered a story of three girls who used to live in Korogocho two years ago. The girls used to live with their father and their mother's whereabouts are not known to date.

A lady called Gladys Wanjiku Njeri had gone to the slum to distribute food to the needy and neighbours revealed to her that the eldest child who was eight years old was being abused by her father. The girl used used to play motherly duties to her siblings during the day and her father would force her to be his 'wife' by sexually abusing her at night.

When the girl was taken to the hospital, the doctor confirmed that the penetrations via the front and back were regular meaning that she was repeatedly raped by her father and she was badly injured. The father is now behind bars because he was found guilty.

Gladys took it upon herself to adopt the three girls and started staying with them. Lynn did a follow-up interview with Gladys and it is a good thing that the girls are living a good life now.

The online community joined hands in supporting Gladys financially and in prayers. The eldest girl who is now almost turning ten was taken through counseling sessions and she is now recovering from the trauma of being abused.

They celebrated their Christmas in Mombasa after a netizen paid for their flight tickets and hotel. Gladys updated people that the girls are all going to school and urged them to continue supporting her.

She sternly declared that she is going to be there for the girls as long as she lives. That whoever will want to marry her will have to embrace all of them or he will not have a chance. She said that the journey of being a mother of four children without prior preparation has not been easy but God has given her the strength. She has a biological daughter who is 14 years old and she accepted the three girls as her small sisters.
