Mombasa: Uber driver accused of sexually assaulting boy, 13, to be charged

An Uber driver who is alleged to have sexually assaulted a 13-year-old boy as he drove him home from school in Nyali, Mombasa is to be arraigned on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old driver was arrested on Tuesday after the boy’s mother filed a complaint accusing him of forcing her son to lick his private parts.

She revealed that an Uber taxi had been scheduled to pick up the Class 8 boy from school and drop him home at around 6pm.

It is alleged that after the driver picked up the boy, he stopped the car by the side of the road–about 50metres from the boy’s home–and locked the windows and the doors.

The boy’s aunt who had requested the Uber taxi is said to have become concerned after the taxi took too long.

She went out to look for the car and found it parked a few metres from the house.

When she asked the driver what had happened, he allegedly told her that the boy had forgotten where his home is.

The suspect is expected at the Shanzu Law Courts on Wednesday.

The boy was taken to the Coast General Hospital.
