PTA member impregnates 12 year old girl, gives her Sh50 to keep quiet

Posted by Administrator on September 15, 2011

A 12-year-old Standard six girl has dropped out of school in Nandi Central district after being impregnated by a member of a school Parents Teachers Association. Police in the area are looking for the 48-year-old man who defiled the girl and went underground after learning that the pupil was pregnant.

The pupil at Kiropket Primary school in Kapsabet division said she was defiled by the parent who gave her Sh50 and promised to give her many other goodies so long as she did not tell her parents. The girl has dropped out of school after the pregnancy became noticeable.

The school head teacher Richard Bett confirmed the incident saying he has written to the district education office and informed the local administration. “The man who committed the act is a neighbour at the home of the pupil and we have informed the relevant authorities to take necessary action,” said Bett who also confirmed that the girl was no longer attending class.

Villagers in the area are demanding police action over the defilement saying the girl is underage and from a poor family.  The villagers claim the man had been attempting to silence the family from reporting to the police. Child rights activists from Nandi County led by Rosebella Bett said the girl needs urgent support since she is too young for her body to bear the pregnancy.

She protested at the slow pace police had taken to act saying there were sufficient evidence to have the suspect face the law. “Police should have acted on this matter long ago because we are told the man is still loitering in the village as he tries to silence the parents of the girl,” said Bett. She said the crime committed by the PTA member should not go unpunished, and that it was unfortunate for a person holding such a position in the school to turn against a child. Police confirmed they are looking for the man.

Popular Kenyan Gospel Singer Mary Wambui Charged

Posted by Administrator on September 15, 2011

A popular gospel Kiswahili songs singer Mary Wambui of the Ahadi ya Bwana fame is among the three suspects held in custody in Embu over the last week faced with charges of conning several job seekers. Wambui, who has also rolled out other popular numbers like Umetukuka, Tuma Neno, and her co-accused were yesterday released on Sh250,000 cash bail for the two sets of charges they face.

Judith Irima Njiru, Josphat Ndambo Mwangi and the musician Mary Wambui Mutarura were charged before Chief magistrate Margaret Wachira that between September 5 and 6 at Kagwerori Market within Embu county and South C estate in Nairobi jointly with others not before the court and with intention to defraud they obtained between Sh12 600 and Sh20,000 from different people.

They allegedly cheated them that they will recruit them as employees in a well-paying non government organisation; East Global Community Association, a fact that they knew to be false. The magistrate had held them in custody after prosecutor Mulamula Imbwaga resisted their release until the prosecution finalised its investigations.

Imbwaga however late yesterday succumbed to their advocate Lugard Mogusu’s earnest request for their release on bond arguing that they had constitutional rights to be free on bond. For one set of the counts, the trio face 11 fraud charges and were bailed out on Sh100,000 cash bail each and another set in which they are facing seven charges, they were released on Sh150,000 cash bail each. The hearing was fixed for October 3.
