A Standard Eight pupil has been rescued from an abusive uncle who allegedly defiled her at a mission hospital where she had been admitted. 

Mary Monari, the Marigat Catholic Mission Health Centre Hospital in-charge, said the 16-year-old from Ilchamus location in Baringo County had been admitted with acute malaria and burns.

According to hospital records, she was admitted on June 13 and was defiled on the night of June 15 in one of the wards.

Sister Monari said the 38-year-old suspect claimed the girl was epileptic and that he was to closely monitor her within the ward, a request that was granted.

But at night, the uncle allegedly switched off the lights and defiled her.

“A doctor who examined the girl in the morning raised alarm after observing discharge from the minor’s private parts,” Monari said.

Management of the hospital reported the crime at Marigat Police Station on June 15 and the suspect was arrested.

The girl was discharged at the weekend and handed over to a child’s welfare unit on Monday.

The pupil, according to hospital records, has been living with the suspect for more than five years after death of her parents.

Area police commander Benjollife Munuve said the suspect will be charged in a Kabarnet court tomorrow.
