Man accused of incestuous relationship flees home
By Vincent Mabatuk
A man who has allegedly been living with his daughter as ‘man and wife’ in Molo has gone into hiding.
Joseph Chirchir is alleged to have run away on Thursday night with the daughter-turned-wife and their three children.
Molo based human rights activist Mr Brian Rono said the man left Kamara village after disposing off his three of his cows, goats and a donkey.
Three days before leaving, Chirchir is said to have felled down all trees inside his compound and sold it off to saw millers.
The old man who has been cohabiting with his daughter for the last eight years is said to have hired a private vehicle that ferried them out of the village to unknown destination.
After The Standard published the story, Chirchir was summoned to Molo Police Station and blood samples was taken from him and the daughter to prove if they have any biological connections.
He has since denied the daughter being his and accused the human rights activist of trying to bribe police to interfere with the findings.
Molo police commandant Achesa Latabalia said he was not aware about the man’s disappearance.
He said investigation were under way to establish the truth.
"We have launched investigations to establish the truth and are underway. The man claimed to have been framed and we want to know that", said the OCPD.
