A 10-year old boy from Nyeri County is nursing injuries after his step-father brutally pulled his penis for allegedly stealing Ksh 50.
The Thursday incident was not quickly known to the mother as the boy was threatened not to speak about it.
One of the boy’s sisters informed their mother of the class four student’s pain before an alarm was raised and the step-father arrested.
It is not the first time the step-father has abused the young boy as the mother narrated of how he once injured his hand.
During the fateful day, the step-father is said to have ordered him to collect two sacks of grass and fed the cows even after hurting his penis.
