Two persons have been detained by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in relation to a notorious video showing an adult administering alcohol to a three-year-old toddler.
The DCI claims that the suspect and his accomplice were caught after thorough analysis methods used to track online child offenders and reveal the identities of the suspects were put in place.
The two were awakened from their slumber in the Thindigua and Pangani estates, respectively. They were Edward Ndirangu Muhuka, 22, and Abdulmajid Hassan Arafat, 19.
The two were charged with failing to protect a child from drugs and substance abuse in violation of section 24 (1) (a) as read with section 24 (2) of the Children Act No. 29 of 2022, and they were arraigned at the Kiambu Law courts on Thursday, December 29. The first accused pleaded guilty and the second accused denied the charges.
The facts of the case will be read to the first accused on January 18, 2023, and a hearing date will be decided.
The second defendant, meanwhile, received a KES 200,000 bail and a KES 200,000 surety.
An adult is seen administering alcohol to a three-year-old boy in the now-famous video that former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko posted online.
According to the DCI’s investigation, the two crashed a Christmas party that a mutual friend had been invited to.
The mother of the young child, who had gone to bed early after looking after her visitors, was startled when she was awakened at two in the morning by worried friends who had seen the viral movie and had shown it to her, according to the DCI.
