Woman chased away by family for reporting defilement of daughter


A woman in Kathiani Machakos County has been excommunicated from her community for reporting the defilement of her 11 year old daughter.

The 11 year old girl had been reportedly defiled repeatedly by her uncle and grandfather.

The woman whose name has been withheld says that her husband sent her out her home with her other children, calling her a murderer who did not deserve to be in that home.

“My husband hurt me, he called me a murderer who does not deserve to be here. He then asked me to carry all my children and leave,” she says.

She says that the family first held meetings and resolved that they deal with the matter internally.

“They held a meeting and barred me from attending, they did not even want me to know what was going on in that meeting,” she narrated

The two perpetrators of the heinous act have since been arrested.

She however insists that she wants to see justice on behalf of her daughter.
