A dramatic scene was recorded at a Kenyan court in Nairobi on Monday, September 20, as a 13-year-old boy testified that he “willingly” had sex with their 32-year-old househelp for eight months.
Testifying on camera after the househelp was granted cash bail, the boy said the affair began in July 2020.
He told the court that he had sex with the househelp whose name initials are V.N.W. at least 3 times a week and it usual occurred between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm on those specific days.
The minor said;
“She told me it’s our secret that I should not tell anyone, and as a result, I never told my parents except when I was caught watching pornography using my sister’s phone.”
The boy also revealed that he was usually aroused after watching pornography and they would sometimes have sex mostly in the kitchen and in the sitting room when everyone was asleep.
He further disclosed that he would steal his sister’s phone to continue watching pornography after using the househelp’s phone. The minor said the househelp kept telling him that what they were doing was wrong but he couldn’t stop.
When asked if he was forced into the act, he said;
“No. I felt the urge so I removed my pants to do it without being forced after we did it for the first time.”
V.N.W was first arraigned and charged with defiling a 13-year-old boy for eight months and exposing the adolescent victim to pornographic content in February 2021.
At that time, it was alleged that V.N.W committed the offence in Mwiki area, Kasarani, Nairobi County between July 2020 and February 2021. The househelp was charged with promoting a sexual offence for allegedly showing the minor pornographic content and performing an indecent act with a child.
Documents presented in court revealed that the act was uncovered by chance as the parents disciplined the boy on February 21.
The boy’s sister had complained that she had lost her phone while in the house. After asking for it from her adolescent brother and sister who both denied taking the phone, she sought for her parents’ intervention.
While being flogged, the boy who couldn’t take the pain confessed to using his sister’s phone to watch pornography after allegedly being introduced to the vice by the househelp. He was rushed to a clinic for a medical test before the incident was reported to the police.
Police said the boy revealed that the house help began the abuse by first showing him videos of people engaging in sexual intercourse. This continued until she began abusing the minor herself.
The suspect has denied the charges and was granted ksh300,000 cash bail or ksh500,000 bond. The matter will continue for hearing on September 24, 2021.
