A 28-year-old paedophile who abused young boys sexually on Tuesday was arraigned in court by detectives based at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Child Protection Unit.
Patrick Mbauni alias Pat ARV who has been harbouring four boys aged between 10 and 12 in his house, was arrested in the coastal town of Malindi last Wednesday after the detectives based at the DCI Academy intercepted disturbing content online, portraying the 28-year-old abusing the minors.
Medical tests later confirmed that two of the minors had been sexually abused.
The sleuths using specialized software for flagging such content online went for the paedophile who runs a football foundation in Malindi, which he has been using to lure innocent minors before engaging them in the beastly act.
The suspect was arraigned before chief magistrate Hon Elizabeth Osui at the Malindi law courts, where he pleaded not guilty to 2 counts of defilement, four counts of child pornography and four counts of child trafficking.
The suspect remains in custody until February 7 for a pre-bail hearing.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
