Sabina Mwikali Muasya, a 22-year-old househelp in Kenya, has been charged with raping a 12-year-old boy and forcing his 5-year-old sister to perform oral sex on him.
Muasya, who appeared in court on Wednesday with her three-month-old baby, is accused of molesting the boy for six months on different dates between January 2020 and July 2020, at Kileleshwa Mosota Gardens in Nairobi county, and unlawfully forcing the teenager into having sex with her.
The suspect, who is charged with a total of three counts, is also alleged to have compelled the victim’s sister to suck the penis of her brother.
According to a report by the police, the mother of the two siblings reported the matter two months after the househelp left their house.
“She reported that she came to know about this on November 8, 2020, at around 10pm through a conversation between her 5-year-old daughter and the new house help while she was bathing her, that Sabina used to tell her to suck the penis of her brother,” the police said.
On hearing the conversation, the mother summoned the children and demanded to get the full explanation of what had been happening while Sabina was working for the family.
The children confessed that Sabina had been sexually assaulting them.
On November 12, 2020, police recorded statements from the children and also took that of the househelp on February 5, 2021.
The children were thereafter taken to the hospital for medical examination.
At the sitting in court, the defendant pleaded “not guilty”.
Her Lawyer, Amos Moses, pleaded with the court to release her on bail, saying she has a baby who needs her care.
The magistrate, Jane Kamau, ordered the accused to be remanded at Langata Women’s Prison, while awaiting a pre-bail report to be filed in court on September 1, 2021.
