An electrician, Yuvinalis Karanja, 33, who was contracted to install a Star Times decoder, in the home of a client, Mrs Gloria, 32, allegedly returned to the house the next day to rape the 15-year old housemaid.
The incident occurred around 3pm on February 24, when Gloria who lived alone with the house help invited Karanja over to her house to install the decoder.
Karanja did not finish the job that day and was told that he should come back only when Gloria was at home. The next day however, Karanja came back to Gloriaâ€™s house without informing her that he was coming to complete the installation. He immediately pounced on the housemaid who was alone in the house and forcefully had sex with her.
The housemaid was said to have escaped from the room and locked the rapist inside the room while she ran outside to alert her neighbours. Karanja was promptly arrested and taken to the police station. Officer commanding Kiambu Police Station Mr. Thomas Kiplombe who confirmed the incident during a press conference said the case is under investigation.
â€œThe facts of the case are that on the 24/02/2015 at about 1500hrs one Yuvinalis Karanja of Gituamba Estate was called by Mrs. Gloria to come and install Star Times Set-Top Box for her.
The suspect did not finish the installation that same day. â€œGloria told Karanja that she would call him whenever she is at home. The next day being 25/02/2015 the suspect went to Mrs. Gloriaâ€™s house when he knew she was not at home and forcefully had carnal knowledge with the 15 years old maid.
â€œThe victim locked the suspect inside the house and ran to inform the neighbours who came and arrested the Karanja and handed him over to the Police. ,â€ Mr. Kiplombe said.
The incident comes barely a day after a similar incident involving Juja Member of Parliament Hon. Francis Waititu occurred.
