Police in Nyeri Town have launched investigations into alleged defilement of a 12-year-old boy by a 60-year-old woman.
It is alleged that the elderly woman, who shares a neighbourhood with the child in King’ong’o area, sexually abused the boy recently in her house.
The boy informed his parents that the suspect lured him into her house and forced herself sexually on him.
“My child was, thereafter, threatened by the elderly woman that he would be killed if he speaks out,” said the boy’s mother.
“Every day, I have to walk him to school because he fears being kidnapped and harmed by his abuser,” added the child’s parent.
The boy’s relatives are now calling on police to arrest and initiate the suspect’s arraignment.
“Justice needs to be served before the boy makes a regrettable decision,” said the child’s uncle.
