A six year old girl is nursing severe wounds after her father’s beatings fractured her skull after beatings allegedly for ‘eating slowly and failing her exams’.
The girl, identified as Sarah Otolo, is said have been leaving with the 27 year old father Joseph Omwoma after her drunkard mother abandoned her.
The father, a nightclub bouncer, is on the run now forth the fourth day. A neighbour’s son who is a playmate of the girl reported her condition to his mother.
â€œMy son came to me on Thursday last week and told me Sarah had been beaten up by his dad and was very sick,â€ says the neighbour.
The neighbour took the girl to a clinic in the area where a CT scan revealed she had a fractured skull.
â€œWhen she came, I observed the injuries and suspected that there were fractures in the skull because there was puss under her scalp,â€ said Dr Mugo who received the the girl..
Dr Mugo said he reported the matter at Kasarani police station so that the father could not later claim the daughter had been abducted.
â€œI gave her some pain killers and antibiotics and later did an x-ray that revealed that the skull had been fractured on the left side,â€ said Dr Mugo.
According to the doctor, the fracture may have been caused by a blunt object or being thrown on the wall.
