A 23-year-old woman claims her life is in danger after she reported her seven-year-old daughter’s defilement.

The woman from Kiangua village in Meru County said her 18-year-old nephew who committed the act in October has been threatening her.

She reported the case to Kiangua chief Gerald Mutwiri who asked her to take the victim to the hospital and report the case to the police

The suspect was arrested and charged in court but was released on bond pending the hearing of the case.

“I have been receiving death threats on me and my daughter for failing to withdraw the case in court,” said the woman who is now in hiding.

South Imenti police boss John Cheruyoit could not comment on the matter as he was holed up in a meeting.
