It was tears for the parents of an expectant 10-year-old pupil who died at Ganze hospital in Kilifi County, Kenya while giving birth to her first baby after she was brutally raped and impregnated by an unknown man.
The little girl who got pregnant after she was brutally raped, died before she could deliver her baby because of birth pains.
According to Standard Kenya, the girl was a pupil at Matolani Primary School. Kilifi OCPD Alexander Makau confirmed the death Sunday evening, adding that police and a local children agency's officials were investigating.
He added that an autopsy would be performed to determine the cause of death despite reports that the hospital had surrendered the body to the family. Hospital sources indicated that the deceased was brought to the institution in advanced labour but died before delivery.
The rapist is still at large.
The parents of the little girl have been left in agony and tears.
