A man was this week arraigned in court and charged with sodomy.

The accused, identified as Edward Kariuki, appeared before Senior Resident Magistrate Eunice Kelly on Tuesday. He was accused of sodomising a 12-year-old boy.

According to court documents, the accused committed the offence in Nakuru town’s Flamingo Estate.

Prosecutor Rita Rotich told the Nakuru court that Mr Kariuki kidnapped the boy while he was on his way home on October 24 at around 5 pm and forced him into a saloon car.

The accused reportedly took the minor to a house in Flamingo Estate and sodomised him.

The suspect’s lawyer, Mr Geoffrey Otieno, pleaded for lenient bond terms.

Magistrate Kelly released the accused on a Sh500,000 bond.

The case will be mentioned on November 5.
