A 45-year-old pastor has impregnated his two under-aged daughters in Kirinyaga County and gone into hiding.
One of the girls, a 16-year-old, gave birth seven months ago while the other 14-year-old is 5 months old into the pregnancy.
The mother narrated how she was called in school by the teacher only to be told that her daughter was expectant and when she gave birth the other one was also expectant.
“I was shocked and went to report the matter to the chief who advised me to go report the matter to the Sagana police station and i was given a P3,” she said.
Kirinyaga women representative Wangui Ngirichi and her Uasin Gishu counterpart Gladys Shollei led residents in protest against the act, demanding the police to search for the man and arrest him.
The two legislators, stormed Sagana Police station demanding reasons for the delay in the arrest of the culprit and later went visiting the girls with donations.
“If the Government of Kenyan is working, we must deal with such offenders and lock them in prison where they belong,” emphasized Ngirichi.
She assured the residents as the women representative of the county she would not rest until the man was arrested while they find sustainable assistance for the girls.
Shollei called upon the residents to whistle blow such cases and smoke out sex offenders in the society who are destroying lives of young girls.
“We cannot let such a man back into this home because he is a danger to the community and being at large puts at risk so many other girls in the country,” she added.
