A Kenyan ex-medical officer faces charges for defiling and impregnating a 16-year-old girl in Migori County, southwestern Kenya.
The suspect, who is in his 60s, was arrested yesterday (Thursday) and is being held behind bars awaiting arraignment.
Police report shows the retired officer committed the act on the day he had gone to the victim’s home to treat her while her mother was away.
The minor is living with mental illness and physical disability.
She gave birth yesterday and confirmed that the suspect is the father of her baby.
The local authorities have condemned the act and warned men against committing such heinous acts, saying those found guilty will face the law’s full wrath.
