Police in Kisumu have arrested a 53- year- old Caretaker who has confessed to defiling four kids in Manyatta area, Kisumu County.
Suspect known as Omwani was arrested on Monday afternoon after one of the allegedly defiled minors reported the matter to her parents.
When interrogated Omwami confessed that he had lured the children with Ksh. 20, Ksh. 50 and even Ksh. 100.
“I did it this month, the first one is nine years and the other seven years old. She is the one who came close me. They usually visit me claiming that they don’t have food and most of the time they go hungry. I used to assist them with the little amount I have. I am a security guard at Manyatta,” says Omwami.
The kids are said to be below 12 years old while one of the kids is said to have disappeared and nobody knows her whereabouts.
A parent of the nine year old stated that she took her child to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital after the child explained to her everything.
“The child explained everything to me, I later took her to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga and later we reported to Kondele police station.
The nine year old defiled child says that the guys used to give them money in return of the act.
“He gives us money, like Sh. 20 in exchange for the act and when we refuse, he threatens us with a knife,” said one of the victims.
The suspect is currently at Kondele police station waiting to be arraigned in court.
