Grassroot football academies have come in handy in nurturing talents of juniors in the sport but one vice in particular is posing as a threat to the success and competence of the said institutions.

The unfortunate case of a 13 year old boy whose identity remains hidden, captured the attention of members of a community based organization in Dagoretti South, Nairobi who blew the whistle on the coach of a local academy who has allegedly been abusing the minor.

John Chege, chairman of the Cushites Family brought this to the attention of Ghetto Radio News mentioning that the perpetrator had taken in the orphaned boy and has instead been abusing him sexually with threats of throwing him out on the streets if he dared to expose his evil deeds.

“The boy is one of Coach Olewa’s players and two of my female colleagues who were surveying the area bumped into him and after interacting with him they realized that he was in distress,” he says.

After engaging further with the minor, that is when he revealed that the man expected to be his protector had been defiling him for over a year.

“From the conversation my colleagues had with the minor, he opened up on being defiled and how Coach Olewa has allegedly been blackmailing him that being the reason he never reported.” Explains Chege.

The victim has been taken to the Nairobi Women’s Hospital for treatment while the suspect managed to escape lynching by the angry residents and is till on the loose.
