A visit to Iten County referral hospital confirmed that they were indeed defiled as the area Chief confirmed that the suspect had separated with his wife.
“Yesterday, a PP1 teacher at the local school where the girls attend, noticed something unusual, in how the six-year-old was behaving. The minor experienced difficulties in walking and was often crying. Attempts by the teacher to get more information from the little girl turned futile.
This prompted her to summon her four-year-old sister also attending the same school, in a bid to figure out what the problem was. Shockingly, she too exhibited difficulty in walking.
The teacher immediately informed the school’s headteacher. After talking to the little girls, they said that they only lived with their father, after their mother left their home, a fact the area assistant chief confirmed. Without hesitation, the head teacher informed our officers who immediately swung into action. They escorted the minors to Iten County Referral.
Hospital for medical examination, where the doctors established that the little angels had been difiled. The children’s father was immediately apprehended and placed in Police custody, pending further investigations.” Said DCI
