Stepfather cuts son’s penis for allegedly stealing Ksh.50
- According to the boy's mother, the incident occurred on Thursday last week but the boy, a Class Four pupil, had been coerced into silence by the stepfather.
- The mother only learned of the incident on Saturday when one of her daughters told her that the brother was in pain.
A 10-year-old boy is nursing injuries at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital after his stepfather vigorously pulled his penis for allegedly stealing Ksh.50.
According to the boy’s mother, the incident occurred on Thursday last week but the boy, a Class Four pupil, had been coerced into silence by the stepfather. The boy maintains he did not steal the said Ksh.50.
The mother only learned of the incident on Saturday when one of her daughters told her that the brother was in pain.
She raised an alarm and the man was arrested by area residents and handed to police at Endarasha Police Post where he was detained.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, Dr. Eric Mabeya, a resident surgeon at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital, said the boy sustained soft tissue injuries and is expected to undergo an operation later on Monday.
Dr. Mabeya further pointed out that as much as the boy’s urination had not been affected he is traumatised and will need psychological help.
After the stepfather injured the boy’s private parts he further ordered him to cut two sacks of grass and feed the cows.
The child’s mother said the man has often assaulted the boy and had even recently hurt his hand but she always forgave him (stepfather) hoping he would change the violent behaviour.
