Kakamega Man arrested for defiling his child,

Police have arrested Mr Patrick Emali, 47, resident of Imbaka Village in Khwisero Constituency, Kakamega County after he was caught red-handed on Tuesday night (July 21) defiling his 13-year-old niece.

A trap was laid to catch Mr Patrick Emali after the minor’s siblings reported to their father (Emali’s brother) that the suspect usually comes to the kitchen where they sleep and defiles their sister.

On Tuesday 11 pm as usual Mr  Emali went to the kitchen, where the children sleep and begun on his escapade to his victim, a Class Seven pupil.

However, before he could flee the scene, the minor’s father and a few neighbours rushed to the kitchen and found Mr Emali pants down still in the process of putting on his clothes.

When confronted, the suspect said that he and the minor had been in a “consensual relationship” for a while now.

The girl’s father called the area assistant chief, Anne Necheza, who arrived in the company of police officers from Khwisero post.

“When we arrested him, he confessed that he has been defiling the girl for long. According to him, the girl has been giving him a nod to the action. However, we all know that legally, the minor is not in a position to agree to any form of defilement,” Necheza said.

“On the night that we caught him in the act with the child, we rescued the girl and took her to Mulwanda Health Centre, where it was ascertained that she had been defiled. STDs and pregnancy tests, however, returned negative results,” said the assistant chief.

“The suspect has been taken to Khwisero Police Station, where he is being held in custody. The child said she has been a victim has defiled by the suspect for a long time.

“I promise to ensure that the suspect is charged and faces the full force of law. I won’t allow the suspect and the girl’s father to enter an out-of-court settlement on the matter. This is a minor’s life we are talking about.”
