Police in Migori have started investigations into allegations that an Administration Police officer sodomised 13 primary school pupils.
The officer who was stationed at Makalda AP camp said to have lured the children aged between eight and 15 to his house in the past one month and abused them.
County Police Commander Joseph Nthenge said 12 children have since recorded statements.
“We have the information and we have ordered that the children be taken for medical examination before we can take any action,” said Nthenge.
He said the children’s guardians and witnesses had also been summoned to record statements.
On Thursday, parents, teachers, and pupils of St Gabriel Primary School staged demonstrations, demanding the officer’s arrest.
Parents of the alleged victims said that the sex pest had been luring the children to his house and showing them computer games on his laptop.
They claimed that the officer would give the children money or threaten them with dire consequences if they told anybody about the assault.
One parent said he realised his son had been abused when a neighbour overheard him describe his experiences at the hands of the policeman to other boys.
The school’s headteacher, Elizabeth Amollo, said the officer frequented the school compound and sometimes spoke to pupils through the fence.
