A minor shocked a Kibera court after she refused to testify against her
The father to the minor was accused of defiling her when her mother was not at home and in the case the minor was to testify.
She told the court that she had sprained her arm and asked her father to massage it as she was feeling pain but their neighbour mistook the sounds she made out of pain as moaning caused by a sexual activity.
The incident happened 2020 June during Corona period at their Keroka home in Kangemi, Nairobi county.
The minor said her father was massaging her in the presence of her sister but she was crying in a manner that made neighbours believe she was being defiled.
It was the neighbor who was was eavesdropping who reported the matter to the police as a defilement act. The man was then arrested and has been in police custody since then.
The minor narrated to the court that after her father was arrested she was asked to go to the police station to record a statement. In the statement she was forced to write that she was defiled by her father.
Following the testimony, the prosecution considered her a hostile witness but she maintained that she was telling the truth.
The minor, who appeared in court with a child, told the court that she got pregnant while staying at a children’s home where neighbours took her after the defilement allegations.
The case will proceed later next month.
