Senate Senior officer arrested for claims of sodomising UoN student

He allegedly sodomised the third year student repeatedly.

On Friday, plainclothes officers attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations pounced on the suspect as he left County Hall offices in Central Business District in Nairobi.

Despite the ugly incident happening on Monday evening last week, the police took four days to arrest the suspect. He is said to be renowned.

The accused man attached to the Senate Parliament security team allegedly arrested the student, took him to an office in Parliament buildings and sodomized him repeatedly.

The student mentioned that he had reported the matter to Parliament Police Station but no action was taken, only to take the  matter to the Central Police Station, and the official was later arrested.

Confirming the arrest on Sunday, Central OCPD Robinson Thuku said the suspect was paraded and positively identified by the victim on Saturday.

“He spent the weekend at the Police Station after being arrested on Friday following the accusations,” Mr Thuku said.

“This is a serious crime and we had to be sure that the victim was referring to the same man we had in our custody.” Mr Thuku added that the suspect would be arraigned in court today (Monday).

Student ordeal

While recounting the ordeal, the student said the suspect had identified himself as a police officer attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations at Parliament.

“This man met me in town. He called me and when I approached, he identified himself as a police officer. He told me that I am under arrest for roaming in town with an intention to commit a crime. I told him that I am a student but he would not listen to me,” the victim told the police at parliament.

The student, whom we cannot identify for legal and ethical reasons, said the suspect took him to a room within parliament, locked the door and sodomized him.

on Monday reported that the victim reported the matter to the Parliament Police Station’s DCI offices but the suspect, who is said to be related to a senior official at the Parliamentary Service Commission, was not arrested.

It is not clear why the offender arrested the victim outside his area of operation. Parliamentary security personnel are required to operate within the jurisdiction of parliament, which includes the main parliament buildings, Protection House, Continental House, Harambee Sacco Plaza and County Hall.
