A Kenyan fugitive wanted in the United Kingdom for sexual molestation of minors has finally been extradited to the European country to face trial.
Anthony Kamau, alias Anthony Kinuthe alias Anthony Kinuthia Kamau, had been on the run for two years after jumping bail in the UK before his arrest in Nairobi by detectives based at the DCI’s Transnational and Organized Crimes Unit (TOCU) on June 17th.
He is wanted at the Chelmsford Crown Court of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, to answer to charges of sexual harassment of minors, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
The suspected pedophile is reported to have sexually assaulted underage girls within an 11-year period from 2005.
He was also charged with four counts of engaging in a non-penetrative sexual activity with one girl and another count of inciting an underage girl to perform a sexual act in 2019.
On June 20th, Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo granted an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions to extradite Kamau to the UK.
The suspect did not oppose a request by the British authorities to extradite him to face trial over seven sexual offenses with three children in the Chelmsford Crown Court.
"I am willing to travel to the UK to clear my name," Kamau told the court.
