The court heard that in January 12th, 2013, Waweru came home drunk and found his daughter and her three siblings sleeping and ordered her to move to a separate room. The minor obeyed and moved to a separate room oblivious of her father’s intentions.
The class five pupil told the court that her father moved to the separate room where she was and warned her not to scream before he sexually assaulted her.
“I had to wait till morning to tell my grandmother because my mother was in Narok then. When I told her, she reported the matter to the Mau Narok police station. When my mother came she took me to hospital,” she told the court.
The accused, however, denied the charges.
