Kenyan soldier defiles a 12-year-old girl

Detectives have a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldier for defiling a 12-year-old minor in Langas, Uasin Gishu county, Kenya’s North Rift.

The KDF Private, Elly Kipkoech, based at 9KA, Second Brigade, is accused of taking the innocence of a 12-year-old girl who is a class seven pupil at a local public primary school, in Eldoret town.

Reports indicate that the minor who went home on a fateful day told her worried mother that she had reported home late because she had been held hostage by a man who took advantage of her. Upon further interrogation, the mother noticed blood stains on her daughter’s undergarments and pleaded with her to reveal the identity of the perpetrator.

Upon filing her report, Eldoret-based detectives employed digital and cyber forensics to trace the suspect, who had gone into hiding at Green Park estate and placed him behind bars.

“Private Elly Kipkoech, is currently being processed for arraignment in accordance to military parlance, after being positively identified by the victim,” said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

The two have since undergone medical tests at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
