A 23 year old is set to have it rough at the state correctional facilities after being allegedly found cohabiting with a minor, and evaded arrest by shaving off his dreadlocks.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, detectives working on the case of a missing 13 year-old girl, arrested one Marcos Menza Masumbuko who is said to have lured the girl to his house.
The suspect allegedly used a social media platform to befriend and lured the minor to his house.
She later escaped to aunt’s place in Nyakach, Kisumu County, and assisted the Police in arresting her captor.
Marcos upon learning of her dissapearance, shaved off his dreadlocks immediately after a missing child report was published.
The sleuths warned against any Kenyan found mistreating a child and promised stern action to those found culpable.
They also warned Kenyan parents to monitor their children’s activities on social media, owing to the increasing engagement of social media for e-learning materials.
President Uhuru Kenyatta vowed to deal firmly with sexual offenders and victims of domestic violence, forming a special unit to investigate into the happenings that have so far been reported.
