By Stephen Rutto | February 11th 2021
A dispute over Sh1,000 during a sleepover has left a KCPE candidate in Uasin Gishu nursing an injury in his private parts for the last two years.
In June 2018, the boy suffered injuries to his genitalia after an attack by two boys who accused him of stealing some money from one of them who was a boda boda rider.
The boy who was in Standard Seven then and had to repeat the class as he sought treatment.
He narrated to The Standard how a boy living in his neighbourhood in Kapkawa area, Soy Constituency asked him to go for a sleepover in their house, and at about 9pm, his guest and another boy demanded to know the source of the money he had used to buy a pair of shorts and potatoes at Soy market earlier in the day.
“I am a KCPE candidate and I have not set foot in school since 2019. I can’t go to school because I can’t walk properly and I am also in severe pain. Recently, I started passing urine with blood,” said the devastated boy.
He said the boys accused him of stealing the cash from one of them who was a boda boda rider.
“My mother had given me the money to buy a pair of trousers but the two boys who were older than me accused me of stealing the cash. They forced me to kneel down before assaulting me for more than four hours at night. I managed to escape at around 3am,” Kiprop said.
His mother has been taking the injured boy to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and Reale Hospital for treatment almost every week.
“I was told by the doctors that some veins raptured in the attack and that I need about Sh100,000 for further treatment. I am unable to raise this money as we have already spent a substantial one on his treatment," said the mother.
The matter was reported at Soy police station under OB number 10/26/6/2018. A police officer at the station said investigations are still ongoing.
