Erasing evidence, Man swallows condom’ after he’s allegedly caught defiling 10yr old daughter

A 50-year-man from Majengo Kismayo Estate in Embu West Sub-County endure lynching after he was supposedly caught defiling his 13-year-old daughter.

A neighbor, Stephen Macharia, said he caught the suspect abusing the minor in his (suspect’s) home in the afternoon.

Macharia said he had been alarmed of suspicious activities in the man’s home by another occupant, a food vedor who had gone to collect money owed to her by the suspect.

“Our neighbour, Caroline, told me she found the suspect’s door locked from the inside, and that sounds of a girl in distress were emanating from the house. I mobilised other residents and went to the suspect’s home, where we broke down his door, and found him defiling his teenage daughter,” Macharia said.

The witness claims the suspect swallowed condom which he had allegedly used in the act.

“The man is conversant with the law. He swallowed the contraceptive to erase evidence,” added Macharia.

Neighbors said the man’s better half, a casual labourer, was away working when all this happened.

Embu West Deputy County Commissioner, Caroline Imaya, confirmed the episode, saying they managed to save the suspect from an angry mob.

“They (residents) had seriously assaulted him. The suspect was bleeding profusely from the head, when we rescued him,” Imaya told The Standard.

The police claims fundamental investigation indicate the suspect, who is living with disability is an ex-convict.

“We are, however, yet to ascertain how true that claim is,” said Imaya.

The suspect was taken to the Embu Level Five Hospital, where he is getting treatment under police monitoring.

If arraigned and found guilty of incest with a child, which is against Section 20 (1) of the Sexual Offences Act, the suspect could spend the remainder of his life in jail.
