To add insult to injury in the women violence crime that are being reported daily in the country, a man has reportedly defiled a class one pupil.
The 11-year-old girl is receiving treatment following an injury she sustained when she was defiled.
The girl from Loosuk area of Samburu central is recuperating at Samburu County Referral Hospital after she was defiled by a person well known to her family.
Maralal town Chief Selina Lemakara condemned the incident saying that the suspect who is well known in the area fled away and disappeared after committing the crime on Monday.
“I will follow up to ensure that the man is arrested, prosecuted and jailed because he committed a very inhumanly act,” Lemakara said.
Ms. Lemakara and Nyumba Kumi chairperson Solomon Wanyeki urged men in the county to stop ruining lives of children by engaging in such acts.
The sentiments were supported by Nyumba Kumi vice chairperson Gulleid Mohammed who asked the government not to have mercy on suspects accused of defilement.
