89-year-old grandmother raped, beaten in Nakuru

An 89-year-old granny is nursing serious injuries at a hospital in Nakuru County after she was allegedly attacked and raped by a middle-aged man at her house on Wednesday night.

According to a doctor at the hospital, the victim was admitted to the hospital on Thursday after she was brought in by Police officers and family members while in severe pain.

The medic said the woman was sexually abused by a man believed to be her neighbor, while she was having dinner at night at her house.

The doctors conducted first aid, where they noted that she had sustained injuries on the face and at the pelvic region and recommended reconstructive surgery.

“She was wheeled to the theater, where doctors performed surgery. She is in a stable condition and responding well to treatment, we are still monitoring her. She will be discharged in the next three days. We have filled the P3 form as Police investigate the incident,” he said

One of the granny’s daughters said that she was informed by her younger brother on Thursday morning that their mother had been attacked and needed medical attention.

She said that her mother, who lives alone, was having dinner when the man gained access through the main gate. He lured her to open door, before attacking and proceeded to rape her, and ran away.

She said that the man took advantage of her loneliness to commit the act.

He covered the granny’s mouth with a piece of cloth to stop her from raising the alarm.

According to the woman, the brother was alerted after their mother failed to wake up in the morning as usual to prepare breakfast.

Her gate had been locked from outside raising suspicion.

She said that after breaking the gate, he found their mother lying on the floor writhing in pain.

She narrated the ordeal to her son who later informed the daughter and neighbors who rushed her to hospital.

“After committing the offence, the suspect locked the door and the gate from outside. Nobody knew what had happened; she never raised an alarm as he threatened her. Luckily before escaping, he left behind his phone which has since been handed over to police officers,” she said

The bizarre incident has left villagers in shock, calling on police to conduct a speedy investigation to apprehend the suspect who had fled after committing the heinous act.

According to Londiani sub-county police commander Agnes Kunga, they have launched a manhunt on the suspect who escaped after committing the crime.

“It is unfortunate what the granny went through at the hands of the suspect. We have launched an investigation into the matter, we call on members of the public to volunteer information which will lead to the arrest of the suspect,” she said
