The DCI have warned Kenyans against meeting on blind dates with strangers unaccompanied. This is following rise in cases of abduction and theft from the involved individuals.
In another case, In a ruling made against a paedophile who defiled children in need of care and protection in Kenya, a U.S based court in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania yesterday sentenced Gregory Dow, 61, to 15 years, 8 months in Prison and a lifetime of supervised release.
In an announcement made by acting United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams, Dow was also ordered to pay over Ksh1.7 Million in restitution for sexually abusing four minors in an orphanage which he operated with his wife in Boito, Bomet County.
Investigations conducted by DCI’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the FBI revealed that Dow, had sexually abused at least four minors between October 2013 and September 2017, before his dark secrets were unmasked. He then fled Kenya to Lancaster County in the U.S.
Following the revelation which was unearthed by NTV investigative series, DCI officers with the help of the U.S Embassy, the FBI and other Multi agency teams were hot on his trail.
Ironically, Dow had established the Children’s Home under the guise of Christianity, with financial support from Churches and Faith-based organizations from the U.S.
DCI boss George Kinoti has warned all members of the public in engaging in such activities and stated that the long arm of law will catch up with them.
