BY CORRESPONDENT,NYERI,10TH JUNE,2019-Police in Nyeri have started investigation into an incident in which a 10-year-old boy’s penis was cut off by his stepfather who accused him of stealing KSH 50.
The boy is currently nursing injuries at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital.The boy maintains he did not steal the said Ksh.50.
The boy’s mother says the incident occurred on Thursday last week but the boy, a Class Four pupil, had been coerced into silence by the stepfather.
The mother only learned of the incident on Saturday when one of her daughters told her that the brother was in pain.
She raised an alarm and the man was arrested by area residents and handed to police at Endarasha Police Post where he was detained.
Dr. Eric Mabeya, a resident surgeon at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital who spoke to Citizen Digital, said the boy sustained soft tissue injuries and is expected to undergo an operation later on Monday.
Dr. Mabeya further pointed out that as much as the boy’s urination had not been affected he is traumatised and will need psychological help.
After the stepfather injured the boy’s private parts he further ordered him to cut two sacks of grass and feed the cows.
The man is reported to have had a history of assaulting the boy and the mother says he even recently hurt his hand but she always forgave him hoping he would change his violent behaviour.
