A 28-year-old Upper Hill Day Nursery School cook has been charged with defiling a four-year-old girl.
The suspect, Alex Opicho Wafula, is said to have committed the crime on January 26, 2022. He’s accused of instilling his manhood in the minor.
According to court documents, the incident was discovered after the victim’s mother noticed blood on the minor’s uniform after school. This prompted her to undress and question the 4years old girl who was crying. That’s when she noticed her daughter was defiled.
The report read;
“She called her husband who came home and took the child to Capital Hill Police Station. The investigating officer then advised them to take the child to a hospital for treatment.”
The following day, the investigating officer accompanied by the mother of the victim went to the Upper hill Nursery school in order to unravel what had transpired.
Upon arriving the school, the investigating officer asked the minor to take them to where the incident happened.
“It was at the school where the victim led them to a composite pit at the compound just behind the classes where the incident happened.”
“The officers subsequently conducted an identification parade at the school. The school had only three males, two teachers and a cook, all of them were paraded and the victim positively identified the cook one Alex Opicho Wafula as the perpetrator of the heinous act.”
Alex however pleaded not guilty before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Wendy Micheni. The victim’s lawyer strongly objected to the release of the accused on bail. claiming that he was positively identified by the minor during a parade at the school hence a likelihood of interference of witnesses if released.
