Children officers are investigating a case where a middle aged man who allegedly impregnated a 12 year old girl in Mathare Slums.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio News, Jesicah Muindi a children’s officer in Mathare Slums says the man is said to have lured the girl into friendship and then later impregnated her.
“This case was reported to us by the mother of the child last week. The girl is a standard six pupil at the Hope Primary School in Mathare slums. We are in the process of collecting our facts about the story after which we report to the police,” said Muindi.
Muindi also accused parents of colluding with the defilers hence helping them evade justice.
“My prayer is that this parent does not go back and have a settlement with the alleged defiler, because in many occasions we have had parents having a secret settlement with such people hence making them go scotfree,” she continued.
