Man who defiled son in Eastern Kenya arrested
Police have arrested a man reported to have sodomized his 12-year-old stepson on Sunday night in Kibwezi, Eastern part of Kenya.
Benjamin Kavindu Mwania, 35, was arrested on Monday moments after the class seven boy studying at a local school reported his dad’s nauseating act.
Narrating his ordeal to officers, the juvenile explained how the one man he believed was a loving dad treated him to a sumptuous dinner before he turned against him.
Kivindu is said to have made his stepson share a bed with him, only to force himself into the innocent boy against the order of nature.
The suspect had then ordered the boy to shower immediately, threatening him not to tell anyone.
“On Monday afternoon, the boy opened up to his mother who was away on the fateful night, who escorted his son to make a formal report with the police,” said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
A manhunt for the savage step-dad was immediately launched, where he was trailed to Miangeni and netted. Meanwhile, the boy was rushed to a local hospital for examination and treatment.
This incest incident against a minor came barely four days after a similar case was reported in the same Kibwezi Sub-county, where a man defiled his 11-year-old daughter at a pathway along Mikuyuni Teachers area.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
