A man alleged to have defiled her granddaughter has appeared before a Nakuru court to face the charges.
The suspect Thomas Lokohe is accused of committing the offence in Njoro sub-county last year, intentionally attempting to infect the girl with HIV virus in the process.
Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Joe Omindo, the minor, who is now seven years old, told the court that the suspect threatened to kill her if she reported him.
“He told me that anytime I discloses what transpired between us he would cut my throat but if I will be a good girl he will not do anything wrong.” The girl told the court.
The court heard that Lokohe threatened to slit her throat if she dared tell anyone what he had done to her.
The victim who is a class one student was later taken to Njoro sub-county hospital for medical attention and the matter reported at the Njoro Police Station.
In addition to the defilement charge, the suspect was also charged with attempting to infect his granddaughter with a virus.
The accused was released on a Sh500,000 bond, with the case set to for a mention on October 11 and heard on November 15, 2018.
