A father who sexually molested his 11-year-old daughter in Kibwezi, Makueni County will be arraigned in court today.
Matuku Katumo, 38, committed the offence on Sunday, January 30 at around 6.30 pm.
The father took advantage of her daughter when they were going home from a nearby shop.
“The daughter, a class five pupil narrated how her father had restrained her hands along a stretch within Mikuyuni Teachers area, before forcing himself into the petrified girl,” the police said in a statement on Friday.
“She had, however, deployed all her power and might into fighting off the predatory dad, releasing a piercing cry that shrunk his muscles in fear.”
The police said that Katumo had threatened her with dire consequences.
“But realizing she had difficulty in walking, he further coached her to frame a fellow pupil at the school, a boy,” the police said.
Nyumba kumi officials who got wind of the matter yesterday demanded to have the alleged perpetrator questioned, as the victim was taken to Kibwezi Sub-county Hospital for examination.
It was while privately with the medical team that the brave girl exposed her savage dad, who was at the time leading the Nyumba Kumi team to the home of the framed boy.
Kibwezi detectives were informed and immediately arrested the suspect.
