A child of 13 years has been defiled and sodomized by the neighbour in Watamu. We directed the family on the mechanisms of reporting to the police and taking her to the hospital for post rape care.

The desk in Watamu Police told them it’s not that big of a deal, it’s just rape. No arrests or OB has been issued as of now.   The family has made their way to hospital. We will escalate this matter to the relevant authorities for further help.

Why do we report these issues? To sensitive you on what to do in cases of defilement. Do not be silent or silenced. We need to combat the taboo that surrounds Sexual and Gender Based Violence. We cannot normalize our children being survivors of Sexual abuse.
