“Dad Demanded Sexual Favours From Me”, Form One Drop Out
The girl, who hails from Mathariti village in Murang’a County, alleged that her father sexually assaulted her since she was in standard eight.
She said that her father warned her against uttering a word about it lest he would kill her.
The girl said that upon completion of her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations she joined a nearby secondary school but things changed when she was transferred to a different school by a well-wisher.
She said that he father started denying her basic necessities such as pocket money to purchase personal effects.
She further alleges that her father would chase her mother out of their home every end term so that he would ‘enjoy’ time with her.
In the second term things took a new turn after her father threatened to kill her after a drop of grade in her academic performance.
Her life has since changed after being reduced to a homeless girl hooping from one home to another in search of a better life.
She alleges that her father recently demanded for Ksh 100,000 from a young man who had housed her.
She has been since reported the matter to the Kangema Children’s office where the case is being pursued.
