The prime suspect in an incident where Baby Junior Sagini had his eyes gouged out has been brought to justice along with his accomplices.
Police are escorting suspects believed to have been involved in gouging out Baby Sagini’s eyes.
Suspect Alex Maina Ochogo was charged along with Sagini’s aunt Pacificah Nyakerario and grandmother Rael Mayaka.
Ochogo and other suspects appeared at Kisii Court before Senior Resident Magistrate Christine Ogweno.
The main suspect asked the court to release him because he could sleep in Kisii prison because the cells were heavily infested with bedbugs and lice.
“Why can’t you bring the witnesses here as soon as possible because I’m suffering in there. I never sleep and bugs and lice feast on me,” Ochogo told the court.
Prosecutor: Give Baby Sagini more time to heal
The prosecution, consisting of Hilary Kaino, George Morara and the Attorney General of the Kisii County Government and other attorneys representing interested parties, asked the court for more time for Baby Sagini to heal and testify.
“Your Honor, one of the minors who is a key witness, is going through a number of processes including counseling and assisting in recovery after the traumatic event. Essentially, the two minors receive psychological support from trained staff. We agree that the court should give the other witnesses more time to attend the court hearing,” Morara told the court.
The chief prosecutor committed the prosecutor’s request and instructed media and social media users not to violate the rights of minors.
“The Court affirms the need and importance of protecting the privacy of minors … directing the media and other social media users not to report anything that would in any way violate the privacy of minors. Further pre-trials will be held on March 2 this year,” Senior Resident Magistrate Ongweno said.
Baby Sagini placed under state protection
Attorney George Morara asked anyone who wanted to help Baby Junior Sagini to contact the state.
The attorney representing the state says Sagini is now under the care of the government and that certain laws and procedures should be followed for his safety.
The attorney suggests the laws protecting the child have been confused with politics by well-wishers who argue they have been denied access to him.
“Right now the government is the baby’s custodian because of the serious security breach she suffered… there are laws and procedures that must be followed before Baby Sagini is handed over to anyone who wants to help him,” Morara told Nation. Africa.
