Residents of Silanga village, Passenga Location, Ol Kalou Constituency in Nyandarua County are demanding the arrest of a man they accuse of being a serial defiler.

The residents have accused the 18-year-old suspect of involvement in several defilement incidents.

They also want the suspect's father arrested for protecting him.


On Monday, angry residents stormed the suspect's home after he allegedly defiled his 14-year-old sister on Sunday afternoon.

They claimed that the girl’s father cautioned her against revealing the incident to outsiders.


“We are bitter that he ordered the daughter to go and work in the farm in the company of her brother who defiled her. The minor is traumatised and in a lot of pain. She has not been taken has to hospital since yesterday and the matter has not yet been reported to the police. Her father is not bothered,” said a resident, Mr Julius Warui.

The suspect is said to have on Sunday afternoon forced his younger sister into a maize plantation where he allegedly repeatedly defiled her.

He is said to have stuffed her mouth with a shirt to stop her from screaming.


She reported the matter to her father who reprimanded her but she later sought the assistance of a neighbour who revealed the incident after her father refused to cooperate.

Another resident, Ms Nancy Wangechi, said this was not the first incident and blamed the suspect's father of being overprotective.

“He on Friday lured a nursery school minor into his house. He gave her some sweets and promised to make her his wife when she grows up. He then went ahead to undress her but the minor managed to escape. The matter was raised with his father who defended the son as usual,” Ms Wangechi said.


Passenga Location Chief Daniel Muniu confirmed the incident, saying that the victim had been rescued and a search for the suspect launched.

“We did not interrogate the minor to avoid traumatising her. She has confessed everything and we have warned his father against meddling in the investigations. The victim has been taken to JM Memorial Level Four Hospital for treatment,” said Mr Muniu.

The victim lives with her brother in the same room after their mother abandoned them to go work in a bar in Nakuru town, while their father lives with another woman in a rented house, a distance from where the children live.
