Police have launched a manhunt for a suspect who raped his 90-year-old mother on Wednesday, in Mbooni-Makueni county, eastern Kenya, before going into hiding.
In a statement released on Friday by the DCI, the woman was found in her bedroom by her eldest son writhing in pain, complaining of waist pains.
“She tearfully narrated her harrowing ordeal in the hands of her younger son Patrick Mumo, 45, who forced his way into her bedroom at around 8pm as she slept and subjected her to the beastly act,” said DCI.
DCI said she was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital in serious condition, where the doctors at the medical facility confirmed that indeed she had been raped.
Patrick Mumo, the suspect, has been ordered to surrender to the police before the long arm of the law catches up with him.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
