A 21 year old man mentally sick man was yesterday arraigned in a Nanyuki court charged with defiling two nursery school girls. Joseph Kanyi allegedly defiled the minors aged four and five years inside his house at Murungai village in Laikipia County on Friday, 15th, September.
The prosecutor Ms Caroline Muriu said on the material day, the two were walking home from school when it started raining and they decided to shelter in the nearest house, which happened to be Kanyi’s. Muriu said it was then that the accused ushered them in, defiled and later released them.
“On arriving to their respective homes, the girls who were complaining of pain in private parts informed their mothers what had befallen them and the parents reported the matter to Umande police station before proceeding to Nanyuki Teaching and Referral hospital for medication,” she said.
The accused was later arrested and charged. Ms. Muriu informed Principal Magistrate Waititu Gichimo past medical records showed the accused was mentally disturbed and requested the court to adjourn plea taking until Monday 25th, September for the accused mental state to be assessed at Nanyuki Teaching and Referral hospital.
The Principal Magistrate granted the request and set the matter to be mentioned on Monday.
