Two women have been arrested for aiding their brother to defile a five-year-old girl in Mombasa.
Mwanakombo Ramadhan and Bahati Juma were presented before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku on Monday, and pleaded not guilty to the charges presented before them.
The court heard that the minor , who is their niece, had been left under their care by her mother who had travelled to Saudi Arabia in search of greener pastures.
In addition, the court was told that the suspect, Said Salim21, defiled the minor on several occasions but the two sisters kept silent and never reported the case to the police.
The court documents show that the matter was brought to the attention of the police by the minors teachers who notified that she had been walking with difficulty.
The teacher’s notified the young girl’s guardian to accompany them to hospital, however by doing so they alerted the suspect who went into hiding in Tanzania
