WOMAN ARRESTED FOR INFECTING BOY WITH AIDS



A woman allegedly defiled a class seven pupil and infected him with gonorrhea and syphilis at Mukunike village in Kangundo subcounty, Machakos.
She reportedly lured the 14-year-old boy into living with her for three weeks using money.
Residents stormed her house on Monday after he returned home limping.
His parents took him to a hospital where tests revealed the infections.
“The boy’s parents reported to me that their child was missing. They suspected that he was in the woman’s house. She denied it when I asked her,” said area chief Bethwel King’ele.
King'ele urged residents to remain calm while investigations are carried out.
He said the suspect is being held at Kangundo police station.
