Police officers have launched a manhunt for a Kenyan pastor who is accused of defiling and impregnating more than 20 girls in Mwingi, Kitui County.
The shocking revelation emerged after parents of a girl who sat this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination stormed the cleric’s home demanding to know the whereabouts of their daughter.
The pastor, whose identity is yet to be revealed, is said to have been asking parents to send their children to him for prayers but ends up sexually assaulting them.
Revelations about his past criminal acts were made when parents of the missing girl stormed the preacher’s home on Wednesday. Many girls are said to have dropped out of school after he impregnated them.
Some parents claimed they had learned that the ‘man of God’ had been intoxicating some of the girls before taking advantage of them.
Confirming the incident, Mwingi Sub-county OCPD Peter Mutuma indicated that over 10 missing girls were rescued from rental houses neighboring the pastor’s house. The cleric managed to escape but his wife was arrested as investigations into the matter continue.
