A house-help in Nairobi was on Wednesday, August 18 charged with defiling a 12-year-old boy.

The Milimani Law Courts heard that Sabina Mwikali Muasya on diverse dates between January 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021 coerced her employer’s son into sexual acts, contrary to the law.

The offences allegedly occurred at the home of Mwikali’s employer in Mosata Gardens in the upmarket Kileleshwa neighbourhood.

The suspect faced three charges, namely defilement, committing indecent act with a child and inducing a child to perform an indecent act.

Mwikali’s first offence was coercing the minor into sexually penetrating her.

The second count states that the domestic worker, on the said-dates, touched the boy’s private parts with her hands.

The third count statesMwikali compelled another child, 5, to suck her 12-year-old victim’s penis.

The suspect denied all the three counts.

Senior Resident Magistrate Jane Kamau directed that Mwikali be remanded at Industrial Area Women’s Prison until September 2, when her probation report will be presented in court to determine her bond terms.

The suspect pleaded with the magistrate to release her on lenient bail terms, saying she has a three-month-old baby that she is looking after.
