The suspect, Kevin Mutheu, was on Monday, November 2 arrested after being found with the teenager in a lodging facility at Chimoi trading centre. Mutheu is alleged to be responsible for the girl’s 4-month pregnancy.
“He (Mutheu) has been defiling my daughter, and finally we caught him red-handed. I do not want to settle this matter out of court. I want the perpetrator arraigned,” said the minor’s father.
The teenager’s teacher, Robert Mandila, who is the head-teacher of Makange Primary School, described the Class Eight pupil as a “bright learner, who has a promising future”.
“She is a bright child. In her last exam, she scored 320 marks out of the possible 500. The girl has a promising future, but it appears the defiler is out to ruin it,” said Mandila.
Confirming the incident, Lugari sub-county education officer, Tom Oluoch, said: “I am urging police to ensure that the suspect who’s a cop is prosecuted.”
Mutheu is being held in custody at Matete Police Station as investigations into the defilement allegations continue.
