Police in Rabuor, Kisumu County are holding a 42-year-old man accused of defiling and impregnating his 13-year-old step-daughter.
Police said the suspect was arrested in Kadibo Sub County after the pupil’s teachers noticed she was exhibiting unusual behavior.
Upon questioning, the class 7 pupil opened up and was taken to a nearby health facility, where she was confirmed to be 4 months pregnant.
Kapiyo area assistant chief Amos Odeny said the father has since denied committing the heinous act.
“The minor has been taken to a safe house. The man is the girl’s step-father, having married the girl’s mother as a second wife,” he said.
The suspect is being held by police as investigations get underway.
