“The girl was not able to sit down properly when she went to school on Wednesday that’s when she was confronted by her teachers and revealed everything that happened. She is staying with her step mum who was not at the house when her father tried to defile her,” Lando added.

Community Volunteer Regina Awino condemned the act saying such cases are on the rise in Kibra.

“We want our mothers to be very vigilant it is not the first time we are handling such matter. For this incident the real mother to the child divorced and they are no longer staying together so the father took this as an opportunity. It is unacceptable and we will ensure stern action is taken against Avumba,” said Awino.

The girl is currently being hosted at the Shofco Rescue Center in Kibra where she will stay for some time.
