Officers from the Office of the Director of Criminal Investigations on Friday arrested a 35-year-old man identified as Ephraim Kimani Macharia for defiling and impregnating his 13-year-old daughter.
According to the statement released by the DCI, the Class five pupil narrated how her father slept with her severally since July2020.
Upon noticing the condition of the class five pupil, the head teacher at Gatumbi Primary School took the child to a local hospital, where she was confirmed to be six months pregnant.
The girl has since been put under the care of a children’s officer at a rescue center in Muthithi, with the suspect in custody as further investigations continue.
