The man, known on Facebook as Mohammed Alfayo, was arrested in Sotik, Bomet County, a day after Nairobi News had highlighted his sickening act.
The area OCPD Jonathan Ngala confirmed that Mohammed Alfayo is in police custody and is helping them with investigations.
He however revealed that they are still looking for the young girl ‘to establish whether the act was truly committed.’
“We have already commenced investigations. We will notify the public once we get to the bottom of the matter,” he said.
On Monday, Alfayo bragged on Facebook about having sex with the minor, in the latest and disturbing case of Kenyan men glorifying paedophilia.
He posted a picture on himself with the underage girl at a bush. He said he defiled her in the bushes.
One of the pictures shows the poor girl lifting her top for the sick man to take a picture.
