A four-month-old baby in Voi, Taita Taveta County is nursing serious injuries after his father bit his genitals.
The 23-year-old father, Salim Mwaluma, was arraigned at the Voi Law Courts after he was charged with subjecting the child with cruel treatment.
Mother to the child, while reporting the incident to the police, said that the suspect committed the offense on Saturday after the man insisted on taking the child for a walk.
Salim was charged with biting the son’s penis, his right leg and rib. The circumstances that led to him committing the offense are still unknown.
Appearing before Senior Resident Magistrate Frederick Nyakundi, the suspect denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Sh20,000 or bond of Sh50,000.
