A man was yesterday charged before a court with three counts of defiling minors aged between eight and nine.
Mr. Raphael Medadi is alleged to have raped the minors at his home.
The court heard that the accused was in the habit of luring small girls into his house enticing them with goodies before raping them.
On the day of his arrest, Raphael had taken a girl aged 8 and slept with her at his house in Mombasa.
According to the girl’s parent, their daughter went missing prompting them to inform the Area Chief who launched a search mission.
She was later found the following morning in the accused’s house. It is said that the young girl could barely walk because of the pain inflicted on her. Medical reports indicated that the girl had been defiled.
Appearing before Mombasa Chief Magistrate Stephen Riechi, Raphael denied the charges.
The magistrate ordered that he be remanded until March 18th when the judgement will be passed.
