SHAME: Father RAPES daughter, IMPREGNATES her in BungomaCounty News 03:47
Tuesday 16th July 2013 - An elderly man was yesterday arraigned in court after he raped and impregnated his daughter.
The man was accused of raping the daughter at their home while the wife was away.
The court heard that the wife travelled to her kinsmen for a burial function when the husband turned to her daughter for his conjugal needs.
According to the 16 year old daughter, the dad forced her to move into the bedroom where he used to sleep with the mother. She told the court that she had to wait everyday for her siblings to sleep because they used to sleep in the sitting room before leaving to the bedroom to sleep with the dad.
The complainant said that she had to persevere with the pains because the father warned her against screaming. Sometimes he could cover her mouth with a piece of cloth to avoid waking up her siblings.
The court heard that the accused would later on leave the daughter to go join her sisters after he was satisfied.
However, appearing before the senior resident magistrate, the accused denied the charges.
The magistrate said that the case will be postponed until the paternity of the baby is established because it was the only proof remaining to ascertain the charges.
