A standard seven pupil at Nzawa Primary school in Mwingi west sun county was on 12/8/2017 defiled by one Pastor Steven Masila from Arising Christian Ministries.
According to the victim, Pastor Steven found her washing the church on that fateful Saturday evening and defiled her warning her not to tell anyone, else he would harm her.
‘Pastor Steven found me mopping the church and raped me warning me not to tell anyone including my mom, ‘ sad victim told Kitui Online
Mother to the class Seven pupil said when they told the Pastor about the newborn he denied hurling insults at her.
‘He insulted me terming me a bad mother as opposed to what he thought if i could destroy his reputation alleging he is the dad to my grand daughter. He further went on saying to take him where we we can, ‘ the poverty stricken widow narrated in tears
The controversial pastor vehemently opposed the allegations adding that if the baby is not his it will not survive and that the mother will also die.
The mother assured journalists that the pastor is responsible for her daughter’s pregnancy because having lived and known her, she was a virgin and knew no man.
However, she lamented on the heavy burden exerted on her as she has to cater for child’s medical check up who underwent Caeserian Section and has not recovered yet due to some complications and also provide for both of the children.
Mr. Katiku, Mwingi children officer accordingly advised the family who had reported to the office seeking maintenance of the baby.
He called upon the members of public to be reporting such happenings in time and also preserve the evidence so that they cannot loose such cases in court.
