Man pleads guilty to sodomising boy at children’s home in Machakos
A man accused of sexually assaulting minors at the Martyrs of Uganda Children’s home in Kimutwa, Machakos County, has pleaded guilty to sodomising one of the nine boys he had been accused of molesting.
The suspect; David Mutuku Katuku, was arraigned before Machakos Resident Magistrate E. Analo where he was charged with sodomising nine boys.
He pleaded guilty to one of the counts and denied the other eight.
The accused will however remain in custody after the magistrate ordered that a pre-bail report be prepared and filed in court to inform whether the accused will be granted bond.
The prosecution opposed the release of the suspect on bail noting that he went into hiding after knowing police were searching for him following the incident.
The court was further told that it would be difficult to trace the accused as investigations, continue since he has no known abode as he was being hosted a relative.
