David Wanyoike the National Youth Council Kariobangi North representative, who reported to the police the plight of a 10-year schoolgirl from Marura Primary School, says his life is in danger.

Mr. Wanyoike who is a neighbour of the girl who slept on her father’s door steps for almost 4 years claims he has received threats from the girl’s grandmother and relatives for exposing the story.

Mr. Wanyoike, who says he has reported the matter to Kariobangi Police Station and obtained OB No. 26/20/9/2015, further claims that unknown people have been trailing him wherever he goes.


After Nairobi News broke the news last week, the girl’s father, Rashid Adan, 47, was arrested and is still in remand waiting for the police to finish their investigation.

Family members explained the reason for the child’s mistreatment being that she brought “bad luck”.

The 12 year old girl is in the good care of Rescue Dada orphanage, while still waiting for her paper work to be finished before she is transferred to a permanent home.
