A Gatundu South family is seeking justice for their daughter, who was impregnated by a church elder who asked the parents to help the girl pay her school fees.
The 14-year-old girl, who was in seventh grade at the time, may be forced to leave school to nurse her three-month pregnancy.
The victim’s family told the media that their daughter is three months pregnant after conceiving during a one-week love affair with the accused male, which stopped after she became pregnant.
The suspect asked the minor’s family for permission to adopt and educate the girl, claiming that he has the sufficient cash and desire to help them improve their living conditions.
“My kid has been diagnosed with a mental condition. The man asked for my daughter in order to provide her with a better life because I was suffering and had another kid in school. “It’s unfortunate that instead of providing her with a better life, he has ended up impregnating her,” the girl’s mother expressed sadness.
After his daughter returned home, the father brought her to the hospital but did not report the incident to the police. Instead, he devised a trap and caught the two lovebirds in bed on Saturday evening, transporting them to the nearby police station. The woman informed the cops that the old guy had been acquiring products from her fraudulently, such as candies, sodas, and cakes, before sleeping with her at his shop and at her home. She stated that she aspires to be a doctor, but that her current circumstances have forced her to put her studies on hold for the time being.
