42-year-old woman who wanted to marry Class 8 pupil arrested in Migori


A 42-year-old woman accused of defiling a Class 8 pupil in Suna West sub county has been arrested.

The suspect was found with the 14-year-old boy at her home.

Area Assistant Chief Evance Nyarube confirmed the incident and stated that he got a report from irate residents who complained about her alleged relationship with the teenager.

According to him, the boy’s parents had repeatedly warned the two against having a relationship.

Mr. Nyarube said investigations established that the woman hinted that she intended to marry the teenager.

She is expected to appear before a Migori court on Monday.

“A person who commits an offense of defilement with a child between the age of 12 and 15 years is liable upon conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than 20 years,” the Sexual Offenses Act reads.
