Woman wants 'rapist' husband who defiled daughter in maize plantation set free

She said she does not have any other person to depend on apart from her husband

“I had gone to fetch firewood when I saw him (step-father) approach. He grabbed me and when I tried to scream, he blocked my mouth with his hand and told me to keep quiet or he kills me,” the minor said of the incident.

Pregnant

As reported by The Standard, his wife Rose Kivandi, however, told journalists that it would be good if her husband is disciplined and released because she is pregnant and with no one else to depend on.

“I have a 3-year-old child and I am pregnant. I do not have any other person whom I depend on apart from my husband. I kindly ask that he be released as he is our sole bread winner,” Ms Kivandi said.

Shadrack Mahungi was arrested after teachers from Emanda Primary School discovered through other pupils that he has been raping his 11-year-old step-daughter repeatedly.

Protect

Vihiga OCPD Justin Nyaga noted they got information about the incident and moved with speed in apprehending the suspect.

“It is unfortunate that those given the responsibility to take care of these children are the ones who also harm them. I urge the general public to protect our children and not victimize them,” Mr Nyaga said.
