Gatundu man arrested for impregnating 15-year-old daughter
Police in Kiambu County have arrested a man suspected of impregnating his teenage daughter.
The 47-year-old man from Kagambwa village was arrested after his wife found out that the father of three had been habitually having sex with his biological daughter.
The 15-year-old girl subsequently conceived leading to a successful delivery on December 28, 2022.
The mother said her suspicion grew following her husband’s fishy behaviour that included occasional outings with the daughter.
When she confronted her husband he threatened and warned her against disclosing the matter.
“He kept threatening me whenever I raised the issue with him. He often asked me; ‘you want to take me to jail?’” the mother said.
The mother claims her husband asked her to take the minor to his sister who lives in Naivasha where she gave birth.
After the minor gave birth, the mother informed neighbours about what had transpired and with their help, contacted the police leading to the suspect’s arrest. The mother and child later fled their home fearing that the suspect would seek vengeance in the event that he was released.
In December last year, a man was arrested in Murang’a County after he allegedly impregnated two of his teenage daughters.
The arrest was made in Gichengo village in Kandara Sub-County after members of the public threatened to take the law into their hands.
The man’s wife was also arrested after it emerged that she may have conspired with her husband to cover up the abuses, but she was later released.
The couple has four daughters. One of the girls, 14, who at the time was suspected to be four months pregnant, sat for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams last year.
