A man who allegedly assaulted his three-year-old child and force-fed her faeces has been charged at a Kajiado Court.
Michael Kimani Wangui denied the charges before Senior Resident Magistrate Becky Cheloti. The man is also accused of beating up the child and injuring her face. The offence allegedly took place at Ilbisil, Kajiado County.
The boy’s stepmother Faith Njeri will be arraigned on Monday. Meanwhile, other witnesses including the doctor who attended to the child will testify on Friday June 11. The child is safely under the Kajiado children protection services.
At the same court, a 52-year-old man was charged for allegedly defiling his 7-year-old son. John Kirura was arrested in Noonkopir. He is alleged to have committed the offence after falling out with the boy’s mother.
Several witnesses including police officers and neighbours testified. Only evidence from a medic is pending for the conclusion of the case.
The magistrate said cases regarding children welfare should be expedited for justice to be dispensed.
