A Likoni man, Mombasa was on Wednesday, February 17 charged for defiling his 10-year-old daughter moments after she defiled too by a neighbour.

Taking the witness stand, Dr Stephen Kalai, previously of the Coast Provincial General Hospital, proved to the Mombasa Law Courts that the minor had indeed been badly penetrated.

Dr Kalai, who had been attached to the medical facility’s gender desk, informed the court that the child acknowledged that she was defiled by her father when she reported to him that their neighbour had earlier raped her.

The event happened at the suspect’s home in the Mathare area, Likoni Sub-County on May 24, 2020.

“The victim had asked her father, Hussein Mzungu Kibao, to assist her to get justice after she had been defiled by their neighbour. The suspect, however, told the minor that he wanted to confirm his manhood how deep the neighbour had penetrated the child,” Dr Kalai, who is now operating at the Likoni Sub-County Hospital, told Mombasa Resident Magistrate Christine Ogweno.

The victim was thereafter taken to the Coast Provincial General Hospital gender desk, where a defilement complaint was recorded and medical tests were taken.

“We established that the girl had undergone womanhood wall abrasion, had a broken hymen and had a healing wound in her womanhood. After being advised and placed under medication, the child admitted to me that she had been defiled repeatedly by her neighbour, and when she reported the incident to her father, the dad also defiled her,” said Dr Kalai.

The victim’s father was later arrested and charged with committing incest with a child, which could subject him to life in jail.

“If it is proved that the female person is under 18 years, the accused person shall be subject to imprisonment for life and it shall be Incest by male persons immaterial that the act which causes penetration or the indecent act was obtained with the consent of the female person,” says the Law.

The hearing to be continued.
