Police raid, close children’s home in Kibra after five boys molested


Police in Nairobi raided and closed a children’s home in Kibra area following confirmation of reports of child molestation.

Five boys seeking refuge at the Kings and Queens Children’s Home were confirmed to have been sexually abused after medical examination, with doctors blowing the whistle even as the home’s administration sought to sweep the misdeeds under the carpet.

On Saturday all 15 children rescued from Kings and Queens Children’s home, who have since been transferred to a government facility, were taken to Nairobi Women’s Hospital for examination.

Police are trying to establish whether someone deliberately introduced the children to the act before deciding whether there is a criminal case.

The home had 11 boys and four girls at the time of the raid.
