A father has committed the barbaric crime of torturing his own daughter over having a boyfriend in Kenya…
In the incident that happened in the village of Bukembe, Kanduyi, Sub- County on Monday, the daughter was left in extreme pain as she was rushed to the hospital.
The mother of the girl says her husband went into a rage after finding out their 16 year old form 2 student has a boyfriend.
He’s reported to have bound, beat and press a hot box iron on the private areas of his own daughter as a form of punishment, just because she has a boyfriend at 16.
“He called me in the house and then locked up the door. He then tied me and started beating me up before he burnt me,” the teenage said from her hospital bed
Wilson Nanga, Bungoma OCPD, assures the public the police are doing everything in their power to bring the man to justice, after he absconded following the committing of the crime.
“We have already launched a manhunt for the suspect and, once we arrest him, we will arraign him in court,” he said.
The teenager on the other hand was first taken to Mercal Healthcare in Bukembe, before being referred for further assessment and treatment to Bungoma County Referral Hospital.
