A 37-year-oldman who has been accused of attempting to sodomise his stepson reportedly ordered him to use his finger on her younger sister.
According SDE, Livingstone Eshikumo, a painter allegedly attempted to sodomise the seven-year-old boy on diverse dates between May 22 and 24 in Nairobi’s Muthaiga area. Eshikumo faces an alternative charge of indecently touching the minor without his consent.
According to the prosecution, the accused was left with the complainant and his four-year-old sister when his wife went to the hospital for delivery.
At night, the accused is said to have asked the minor to sleep naked, but the boy refused. He reportedly threatened to stab him with a knife he had in his hand.
Police said the accused tried to defile the boy who screamed until the accused stopped before instructing the minor to insert his fingers in his sister’s privates until she died since she was not his daughter.
When the mother returned from hospital and realised that all was not well, the accused allegedly kicked her out of the house together with her kids. She sought refuge at a neighbour’s where the complainant told him everything.
Eshikumo was arrested after the matter was reported to the police. He denied the charges and was released on a surety bond of Sh300,000.
