Kenyan woman charged with having sex with a boy in police cells

Published

on

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with defiling a Standard Eight boy in a police cell where they had been detained for different offences.

But when she appeared at Milimani Law Courts on Wednesday, Naomi Nechesa Sanya denied that she engaged in sex with the underage boy at the Riruta Police Station on Sunday night.

Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot heard the accused, who is being investigated for the offence of murder, met the complainant along the corridors of the police station cells.

“The 15-year-old boy had been arrested over a drug-related offence and could not be detained with adults in the cells,” State prosecutor Kennedy Panyako told the magistrate.

CORRIDOR

The prosecutor said the boy was in the corridors of the police station when the accused bumped into him.

The accused denied two counts of defilement and indecent assault.

Nechesa applied to be released on reasonable bond terms, saying “I have an 11-month-old baby who is breastfeeding.”

She further pleaded, “Since my arrest and detention on Sunday I have not seen my baby neither have I breastfed her.”

The accused told the magistrate it is the child’s right to be breastfed and separating her from her mother is a breach of the baby’s rights to suckle and to motherly care and attention.

“I urge this court, in the name of my child’s rights, [to] release me on bond or direct police to go to my residence and pick my baby and reunite her with me at the police station,” Nechesa pleaded.

MURDER CHARGE

She said that she will plead guilty to the murder charge once investigations are completed.

Mr Panyako opposed the bail plea, saying murder investigations were underway.

In his ruling, Mr Cheruiyot directed police to reunite the woman with her baby so that she can breastfeed her.

“I direct police pick the baby from the suspect’s residence then take her to the accused at the Riruta Police Station to breastfeed her,” the magistrate said.

He also ordered that the defilement case be heard Thursday since the boy is being held in a children’s detention home.

The magistrate further directed that Nechesa remain in custody to help police to conclude the capital offences investigations.

TSC PROMOTION SHOCKER FOR TEACHER WITHOUT MASTER’S

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is in crisis after insisting that teachers eyeing promotions to secondary school principal positions must have attained a Master’s degree.

Several tutors were locked out of interviews in spite of being shortlisted.  The interviewees were shocked when they arrived at the interview centers to be barred for failing to meet the new requirement.

In counties like Narok, Kericho, Bomet, only five candidates were cleared to sit for the interviews out of the 17 shortlisted candidates for secondary school principal positions.

“Only five of us were cleared to enter Kaplong Boys Secondary School in Sotik Constituency, Bomet County, which was the venue of the interviews for those from the South Rift on Friday,” said a candidate who was among those locked out of the interviews.

He added: “TSC should come out and clear the air on why we were shortlisted and invited for the interviews only to be turned away at the gate for lack of Master’s degree certificates.”

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) and the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) have since demanded the interviews be called off and the exercise be started anew in the spirit of fairness.

“Concerns have been raised by the teachers, with Kuppet having formally written to TSC on the matter,” said Ms Macharia.

According to Wahome, the motive behind the attack was still a mystery to them as the man could not talk.He said that the two were well known as they have been lovers and were frequent visitors to the bar.

“After biting and cutting off a very big chunk of the tongue, the woman fled leaving the man writhing in pain and was rushed to the hospital,” he said.

Area Chief Hassan Guyo confirmed the incident adding that police were looking for the suspect while the man was in great pain and but undergoing treatment.Guyo admitted that it left many questions unanswered adding that only the victim and the suspect could reveal more.“The man cannot talk as a big part of his tongue is missing while the suspect responsible for the attack has gone missing,” he said.
