A stepfather was arraigned in Nyeri court for injuring his stepson’s penis for allegedly stealing Sh50 last week.
George Gatura assaulted the class four pupil aged 10 years leaving him nursing soft tissue injuries at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital.
He pulled his private parts even as the boy insisted he did not take the said money. The incident was unmasked three days later after the boy’s sister sensed his brother was in pain. She told their mother who uncovered what transpired.
“residents have threatened to lynch him”
Gatura was arrested by locals and taken to Endarasha Police Post. This was not the first time he was assaulting the boy. Residents vowed to lynch him if he is set free.
Doctors say the boy will undergo an operation and there are hopes he will recover though he needs psychological help.
