A Standard One pupil stunned a Meru Court Tuesday when she narrated how her father defiled her and gave her Sh 10 to buy a cake after the act.
The six year old testified, “I know the accused very well because he is my father.”
She added: “I was with my siblings in the sitting room when my father called me and told me to go to his bedroom. It was during the day after my mother had left home.”
She told Meru chief magistrate Lucy Ambasi, that the man undressed and defiled her.
“I felt a lot of pain and cried. When my siblings heard me crying they rushed to the bedroom. I told him I was feeling pain but he still continued. He gave me Sh10 to buy a cake after the act,” said the girl as quoted by Nairobi News.
The Court heard that the man stopped when he heard the mother coming towards the bedroom.
“My mother found me holding my panties and holding ten shillings that my father gave me. She then took me outside but my father started to beat her,” said the minor.
The girl’s mother reported the matter at Kiirua police station, where together with her first born they recorded statements.
While testifying in the case, the girl’s mother said she was shocked when she found her husband defiling their first born on their bed.
“I left my children with their father, however, on my way to the forest I found that I had forgotten a panga and I went back. When I reached home, our two other children told me that my husband was in bed with our first born. I found them naked,” she said.
She added, “I took the child but I realized she was bleeding. She told me that her father spit on her private parts and defiled her.”
She said that after confronting him, he became furious and hit her with a metal rod.
The child was treated at the Meru teaching and referral hospital, and put on medication for a month.
