Two men, aged 19 and 22, were arrested today on suspicion of defiling a 16-year-old student in Sotik, Bomet County. Besides, a father who forced himself on his 10-year-old child was arrested in Makueni.
The two men allegedly locked themselves in and defiled the student in a bedroom at a hotel in the Tembwo area.
A citizen who was outraged by the incident reported the matter to the deputy chief of the area, who immediately informed the police.
Sotik police officers arrived at the hotel and arrested the suspects, who are currently being held under house arrest.
The rescued daughter was taken to hospital for further treatment and examination.
Elsewhere in Makueni County, a 50-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing his 10-year-old daughter, a third grade pupil.
John Muema is accused of brutalizing his daughter at their home when her mother had left the two of them and went to fetch water. The father later threatened to kill his son if he spilled sorghum on his mother.
The incident took place in the man's home, but out of fear of the girl, she decided to remain silent following threats from her biological father.
However, the man's treachery ended today after the girl broke her mother's blessing, and the report was registered at Kola police station, in Kilungu Makueni.
The child was taken to hospital for further investigation while the suspect was detained at Kola police station awaiting trial on a charge of defamation.
