A Kenyan woman, Naomi Nechesa Sanya, has been arrested and arraigned in court, for allegedly raping a teenage boy at a police station they were being detained in.
23-year-old Naomi Nechesa Sanya who was arraigned before Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot, who was previously arrested for murder, met the complainant along the corridors of the police station cells. The woman who was accused of raping the underage boy at Riruta Police Station in Kenya thereafter, however denied the allegation.
“The 15-year-old boy had been arrested over a drug-related offence and could not be detained with adults in the cells,” State prosecutor Kennedy Panyako told the magistrate.
Nechesa who pleaded with the magistrate to allow her breastfeed her baby as she applied to be released on reasonable bond terms, said;
“I have an 11-month-old baby who is breastfeeding. Since my arrest and detention on Sunday I have not seen my baby neither have I breastfed her.
“I urge this court, in the name of my child’s rights, [to] release me on bond or direct police to go to my residence and pick my baby and reunite her with me at the police station,” Nechesa further pleaded.
The lady who disclosed that she will plead guilty to the murder charge once investigations are completed, was released by Mr Cheruiyot who directed police to reunite the woman with her baby so that she can breastfeed her.
