A man suspected of raping his 10-year-old daughter in Kilungu, Makueni County has been arrested.

Fifty year-old John Muema Ndilu is believed to have turned on his own daughter while her mother was away.

According to the police report, Muema committed the crime on September 28 while his wife was away fetching water.

In a separate incident today, DCI sleuths have arrested two men suspected of defiling a 16-year-old girl in Sotik, Bomet County.

Linus Nyakundi, 19 and Danface Makori, 22 are suspected of locking up the school girl at Sudan Lodging within Sotik's Tembwo trading centre where they allegedly committed the dreadful act.

Kinoti, said the two were spotted by a concerned resident, who reported to the area assistant chief of having seen the two earlier in company of a young girl.
