Detectives in Makueni have launched a manhunt for a preacher who is accused of defiling a teenager before escaping to avert arrest.
Reverend Daniel Kimeu committed the atrocity on October 19 and warned the girl of dire consequences should she disclose the ordeal to anyone.
“The Man of the cloth identified as Rev Daniel Kimeu, entrusted with the responsibility of shepherding the lord’s flock abdicated his responsibility and attacked one of his own,” a police report reads in part
“The cleric who ministers at A.I.C Kalebwani church in Kilungu, had offered a ride to the 18-year-old form three girl on October 19, 2021, before he stopped the vehicle at a secluded spot,”
According to her statement, the girl was walking home from Kikuswi market when the preacher stopped and invited her to enter his vehicle.
The girl innocently boarded the vehicle only to be raped moments later. The clergyman went into hiding immediately after the incident and detectives are hunting him down to ensure he faces the full wrath of the law.
