A man who is believed to have defiled his two daughters aged 4 and 6 has been apprehended in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County.
Luka Rutto well known as Cherambach, 49, was arrested yesterday night.
According to DCI director George Kinoti, the father is suspected to have committed the crime while living with the children.
“Rutto is believed to have committed the heinous act while living alone with the minors, after separating with their mother.”
Kinoti confirmed that a PP1 teacher at the girl’s local school observed something unusual, in the six-year-old behaviour.
“The minor experienced difficulties in walking and was often crying,” Kinoti said.
Trials by the teacher to obtain more information from the little girl were unsuccessful.
It resulted in her calling for her four-year-old sister in the school, trying to discover the problem.
“Shockingly, she too exhibited difficulty in walking. The teacher immediately informed the school’s headteacher,” Kinoti remarked.
They talked to the little girls, they said that they only lived with their father, after their mother left their home.
According to the area assistant chief, the claims were true.
The headteacher informed officers who instantly began their investigation.
“They escorted the minors to Iten County Referral Hospital for medical examination, where the doctors established that the little angels had been defiled,” he said.
The children’s father was arrested and placed in Police custody, for more investigations.
