A 15-year-old girl is fighting for her life in hospital after a forced abortion went wrong.
The girl had fallen pregnant while working at a brothel in Eastleigh area Nairobi.
According to police, the 15-year-old minor said she had been taken from Mandera in 2018 and brought to Nairobi where she had been promised that she will be taken to school. However, that did not happen.
The girl explained how she was instead taken to a brothel in Eastleigh, Nairobi where she was forced to sleep with different men.
“The sad part of the story is when the girl narrated how when she discovered that she was pregnant, her “boss” gave her abortion pills to get rid of the pregnancy and even went ahead to step on her tummy,” a source who sought anonymity said.
She was found writhing in pain by good Samaritans who took her to a hospital before reporting the incident to the police.
Police officers raided the brothel and arrested a woman believed to be behind the illegal child sex trade.
