Law enforcers in Migori have launched a manhunt for a man who stands accused of defiling and impregnating a 13-year-old in Awendo.
The minor, a class one pupil at Kindu primary school said to be mentally unstable, tested positive for pregnancy on Wednesday at a health facility following her grandmother’s suspicions.
A medical report seen by the area Chief Ezekiel Kokeyo stated the girl is about one month pregnant.
According to reports, the victim can positively identify the sex-pest but she cannot give a clear narration of her ordeal. She, however, identified the scene of the alleged attack near a stream in the area.
The area chief said they are yet to establish the exact dates the sexual assault occurred.
“We have launched a manhunt for the suspect and we will move around with the girl to help us identify him so that he can be arrested and charged for defilement,” Mr. Kokeyo told Citizen TV.
On his part, Migori police boss Joseph Nthenge said they are confident they will catch the attacker.
