The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has vowed to take action against Donald Njiru Njaaga after he posted an explicit update on Facebook.

In the post, Njaaga purported that he enjoys babysitting young girls and even went as far as explaining how he would take sexual advantage of the children.

The suspect could be in violation of Section 12 of the Sexual Offences Act which states that:  

A person including a juristic person who - (a) manufactures or distributes any article that promotes or is intended to promote a sexual offence with a child; or (b) who supplies or displays to a child any article which is intended to be used in the performance of a sexual act with the intention of encouraging or enabling that child to perform such sexual act, is guilty of an offence and is liable upon conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than five years and where the accused person is a juristic person to a fine of not less than five hundred thousand shillings.

One woman took to social media ranting about the post and asked the police to arrest the suspected pedophile.
