An official of the Catholic Justice Commission Mr. Charles Lang’at has revealed that defilement cases are on the rise in Nandi County a situation which has worsened urging the Nandi Kaburwo Council of elders to intervene and end the menace.
Speaking with journalists in Kapsabet town, Lang’at decried rise in such ugly incidences, a recent one being the defilement of a two month old baby by a seventeen year old boy a situation which has stirred fear and confusion in the community.
“It is unacceptable for rotten morals in the society when there are elders who are supposed to guide and give directions to the young and the incoming generation.” He added.
He called upon the elders to instill discipline and moral values among the youths as it is the group that has planted moral decays especially in this 21st C.
Lang’at urged parents to take action when such cases occur and avoid traditional way of settling disputes so as to be an example to all engaging in such indecent acts to innocent children.
He added that so far there are three cases of defilement that are being handled and is hoping that all the perpetrators of the defilement are charged accordingly without any favourism.
