Police in Mbooni Makueni County are on the hunt for a man suspected to have raped his 90-year-old mother on Mashujaa Day.

The suspect, Patrick Mumo aged 45, is alleged to have forcefully entered his mother’s bedroom at around 8pm before subjecting her to the revolting act.  Mumo fled soon after.  

“She tearfully narrated her harrowing ordeal in the hands of her younger son who forced himself into her bedroom and subjected her to the beastly act,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations said in a statement.

The woman was found in her bedroom by her eldest son writhing in pain and complaining of waist pains. She was immediately rushed to Kisau sub-county hospital in serious condition and is currently undergoing treatment.

“Doctors at the medical facility confirmed that the victim had indeed been raped,” the DCI said.

The DCI are calling on the suspect to surrender himself to any nearby police station.

“Detectives are appealing to Patrick Mumo to give himself up at the earliest available opportunity, before the long arm of the law catches up to him,” the DCI said.

The DCI has similarly called on members of the public who might have any information that might lead to the apprehension of the suspect to contact them immediately.

“Should you have any information that may assist us to bring the suspect to justice feel free to contact us via our hotline,” the DCI concluded.
