On Wednesday, two boys appeared in court in Kakamega to give evidence against an 18-year-old lady accused of defiling them earlier this year.
The youngsters, who are eight and nine years old, testified against the woman accused of defiling them on February 13 and 14 at Emusala village in Kakamega central before Principal Magistrate Joseph Ndururi.
Through their mother, the youngsters claimed that they were still dealing with the incident’s psychological stress.
The accused allegedly phoned the eight-year-old child to her home at around 4 o’clock in the afternoon while he was playing with his pals at home and pretended to show him a game on her phone.
“I was called into the house by the accused so that she could show me a game on her phone but after entering the house, she took me to the bedroom, undressed me and defiled me,” he said.
He added that during the act, the second complainant, who is his brother, also gave an account of what happened on the material day.
He claimed that when he was playing outside, he was intrigued about the type of game his sibling was watching. He decided to peek through the window and, upon discovering his brother naked and the accused in bed, went to knock on the door of the bedroom.
“When I knocked on the door, she (accused) opened and I saw my brother naked in bed. I asked what game they were playing but they didn’t answer me,” he said.
He said that the accused asked him to also go to bed to be shown the “video game” she had shown his brother.
“I went to bed full of curiosity only for her to defile me,” he said.
He added that they had been cautioned not to inform anyone and were concerned for their safety since the accused had threatened to beat them if they did.
Their mother claimed that her older kid experienced problems and is unable to walk normally.
“We have three witnesses remaining, including the doctor and the investigation officer to testify,” said State lawyer Leina Davies, noting that the accused was seven months pregnant.
“The matter will be mentioned on December 11 for remaining witnesses to testify,” said Ndururi.
