Boyfriend ‘raped me all night’

A schoolgirl yesterday told the court that tests conducted after she was defiled by her boyfriend confirmed that she had contracted a sexually transmitted infection.

The Form One girl at a local secondary school told the court that she was picked up by her boyfriend on August 13, 2018, at their Matioli village home, Lurambi sub-county, at 9pm and defiled the whole night.

The complainant, identified as LA, who was then a Class Eight pupil, said she had accompanied the accused to his house.

She told Kakamega Resident Magistrate William Lopokoiyit that she was shocked the next morning when her grandmother demanded to know her whereabouts on the fateful night.

She was testifying in a case in which Kelvin Shimwoka is charged with defiling an underage girl. The girl was 16 at the time.

Shimwoka, who was given a chance to cross-examine the complainant, sought a later date saying he needed the witness statements to enable him to correlate them with her testimony.

Mr Lopokoiyit adjourned the case to April 22, when the complainant shall be called again for cross-examination.

Shimwoka will remain in remand at the Kakamega Prison.
