Man arrested in Nakuru for wanting to secure an abortion after defiling his daughter


A 39-year-old father of four is being detained at Njoro police station in Nakuru County after he was arrested attempting to procure an abortion for his 18-year-old daughter.

The man is alleged to be responsible for the pregnancy.

Amani sub location assistant chief Milka Lang’at said that the man had gone to pick his daughter from  school in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County with the aim of procuring an abortion for her.

The girl is said to be three months into pregnancy.

The man is said to have been tricked by villagers into travelling back home to conduct the procedure before being led to a backstreet in Njoro town.

Langat said that the girl confessed to having been forced to have the illicit affair with her father for four years and said when she attempted to have her mother intervene, she was warned of dire consequences.

She said that the man will be charged with incest and defilement among other charges once the police conclude their investigations.

“Today, we went to visit their home and talk to the wife about what has been happening so that she can  explain why she has been silent and whether the other daughters have been undergoing the same,” she said.
