Defiled, heartbroken, betrayed and totally distraught is the story of a 12-year-old girl whose case remains at the Isebania police station after her father, a respected police officer raped her.

The 12-year-old girl whom we will chose to call ‘Juliet’ to protect her identity given that she is a minor and the circumstances of her case, reported to Isebania police station to seek justice and protection from the law.

At Isebania police station, a defiled and distraught Juliet was met by ruthless police officers whom instead of offering her security as is their duty, the officers locked up the young Juliet aggravating her situation further.

The 12-year-old Juliet accuses her father of defiling her on the 1st of November 2019 in his bedroom at their home in Nyabohanse town.

Juliet, the 12-year-old rape victim is believed to have been locked up by the Isebania police officers in a bid to conceal evidence of the alleged defilement believed to have been carried out by her father who is their colleague.

A teary 12-year-old Juliet who is in class five in a private school in Nyabohanse revealed the disgusting act ironically undertaken by people that would be expected to protect her.

Juliet said that she had requested for school fees from her father when he led her to his bedroom and defiled her instead.

Juliet’s father, the suspect reported to have meted the heinous act on his own daughter, is said to have been a security officer to a senior politician in Migori County but was interdicted as a disciplinary measure.

The 12-year-old Juliet is said to have been defiled in broad daylight as she sought 13,890 shillings for her school fees.

“I was cleaning utensils when he came home that morning. He called me to his bedroom as he wanted me to do some shopping for breakfast. I was helpless as he pinned me on his bed and committed the act,” 12-year-old Juliet narrated amid tears.

Juliet’ notes that upon making a report at the police station in the presence of the area chief, she was coerced to forgive her father for defiling her.

“I reported the incident to a female police officer, who called my father and the area chief and tried to persuade me to forgive him,” Juliet’ tells.

Juliet says that she was later transferred to Isebania Police Station where she was locked up in a cell for several hours before being transferred to Nyayo hospital where she was tested and given some medication.

Juliet,12 years of age, was later transferred to a police cell where she shared a cell with six adults  and slept on a cold floor.

Juliet is said to have only been allowed to be seen by her father who only threatened her to drop the case.

“We visited her (12-year-old victim) on the same evening she was arrested, the officer declined to release her, saying the national flag at the station had already been lowered and we were not allowed to see her,” her grandmother said.

“All we need is justice for the minor. It is sad that the police, who ought to have protected her, conspired with the suspect to torment her further,” Juliet’s grandmother notes with a tinge of sadness.

“The six-day detention was a plot to conceal possible evidence of rape. Even police records and the occurrence book entries were skewed,” a guardian staying with the 12-year-old said.

It has since emerged that the 12-year-old contracted a venereal disease that could be used as evidence in her quest for justice.

The 12-year-old girl is now crying out for justice to protect her from her own father who she accuses of taking away her innocence.
