A 26-year-old man suspected to be behind the gouging out of a three-year-old boy’s eyes in Kisii last week has been arrested.
Maina Ochoki, a first cousin to the victim, was arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Sunday evening and was set to be arraigned in court on Monday.
Junior Sagini, a three-year-old boy from Ikuruma village in Marani, Kisii, is admitted in hospital after his eyes were gouged out by unknown assailants.
The boy was reportedly playing with other children outside his grandmother’s house when he was snatched by an assailant at around 6 pm on Wednesday. He was found dumped at his family’s banana plantation the following day with his face covered with blood.
Police said the main suspect will face attempted murder charges while the boy’s mother, 24-year-old Maureen Nyaboke faces child neglect charges. Nyaboke is said to have separated with her husband over abuse.
Doctors at Kisii Eye Hospital have confirmed that the boy will remain blind for the rest of his life.
“Unfortunately, since all the eyes were gouged, there is really nothing under the sun that can make this child see again, no technology or knowledge that can make this child see again,” Dr. Dan Kiage said.
The only punishment I see close to justice is having the eyes of the perpetrator of this heinous crime gauged as well.This one leaves me speechless.It's bad enough an animal like a leopard with no sense doing this,but a human being...?How more innocent can one be than a 3 year old child?.
Really?..gouge out 3 y.o eyes while alive?.I want actual ' chinkororo' Kisii men to act now.Storm police station,snatch the guy from jail,and slowly without mercy extract his 'balls' out using blunt Makati..then forcefully have him chew them slowly, then release him to go..jela na korti za Kenya ni feki!
Stone this animal to death prison is too good for him or just let them kill him in prison if the village mob do not get to him first
This asshole deserves nothing less than the death sentence. Shouldn't we bring back the actual death sentence by hanging? It's a terrible pity that this animal,if found guilty, will remain alive in prison, getting three meals a day,free medical care,free lodging and entertainment, all paid for by the public that he brutalized!! I say turn him loose to mob justice!!
At first they reported that the little angel's eyes my have been removed by a professional maybe even surgically. These people they keep arresting don't seem like they know any surgery maybe even mtu anawawekelea.... I want them to nab the real culprit. Wamfanyie naye mateso haijawahi sikika tena
