Police in Migori on Wednesday, November 11, arrested a local pastor for allegedly defiling and impregnating a standard eight girl at Ongito village in Nyatike sub-county.
According to police report, the pastor is accused of defiling the 14-year-old girl at Muslim Primary School in Migori County in September this year.
Nyatike Sub county Children Officer Joyce Atieno who spoke to Citizen Digital said that the minor had revealed that she had gone for prayers at the pastor’s church when the church leader defiled her.
The Children Officer added that the incident was discovered two months later after the girl wrote a suicide note blaming her parents for the lifechanging ordeal.
The girl said that her parents forced her to go for prayers at the suspect’s church.
“When this person came to our home, he told my mother that he wants me to go for prayer. I refused to go alone and I decided to go with my friend. When I reached there, he told us to go with him to the church for a prayer at 9.00pm. There was no one at the church, only the three of us.”
“When we reached there, he told me go with him to a room for the sick for prayer. After that I don’t know what happened when my mind came back, I was tired and could not walk properly but when I asked him what happened, he told me that he had just removed things which were disturbing in my stomach. I only saw blood and some white things coming from me,” reads the girl’s suicide note.
The suspect is in police custody and will be arraigned in court this week.
