Outrage as woman defends a man who sodomized her 8-year old daughter in South C Nairobi.

Thursday, January 10, 2019- A woman in Nairobi has sparked outrage after defending a man who defiled her 8-year old daughter in South C estate.

The suspected pedophile, a pilot by profession, was arraigned in a Nairobi court on Wednesday where he denied the charge.

Senior principal magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot denied the suspect bail and he will remain custody until January 17, when the victim testifies in the case.

The court heard that the victim jumped off a four-storey building to escape him and was taken to a Nairobi Hospital.

“She [victim] is very scared of him. The violent nature of the accused person is intimidating to the child victim and will cause her to refuse to testify against him. His influence over her is real and it will cause fear in the child not to testify against him,” Inspector Evelyn Mboya of the DCI’s Child Protection Unit said.

“The victim was severely traumatised by the painful ordeal to the extent of attempting to commit suicide by jumping through the window of their house on the fourth floor. As a result, the victim got fractured and was admitted to Nairobi Hospital” Mboya added in an affidavit filed by state counsel Caroline Karimi.

However, despite doctors informing the minor’s mother about the defilement, she refused to accept and has continued to deny that her child has been defiled.

 “After examining the child, doctors found she had been defiled. They gave the information to the mother, who maintained that the child had not been attacked. It has taken three months of counselling for the girl to reveal the perpetrator because he is a relative,” State counsel Caroline Karimi said.

The suspect identified as Ledama Sultan, has been co-habiting with the victim’s mother.

The minor is in custody of the state and has been placed at a children’s home in Nairobi.
