Kenya: Shock As 9-Year-Old Gives Birth in City Hospital
In a case that has left Kenyans in shock, a nine-year-old girl gave birth at a Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday. Photographs of the smiling minor breastfeeding the infant have been circulating online, although her identity cannot be revealed for legal reasons.
The more disturbing fact that is yet to be uncovered is the identity of the father who impregnated his own daughter.
It is unclear whether legal action will be taken against him for the callous act of paedophilia, which is illegal in Kenyan law.
The Sexual Offences Act and the Children's Act both outlaw sexual contact with minors, defined in law as defilement.
"A person who commits an offence of defilement with a child aged eleven years or less shall upon conviction be sentenced to imprisonment for life. A person who commits an offence of defilement with a child between the age of twelve and fifteen years is liable upon conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than twenty years. A person who commits an offence of defilement with a child between the age of sixteen and eighteen years is liable upon conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than fifteen years," reads the law in Section 8 sub-sections 2 to 4.
Although the Nation's attempts to get clarification from the private city hospital have not yet borne fruit, the incident seems to be only the latest in a string of minors experiencing pregnancies.
Last month, the country was jolted by news of at least nine teenage students at a local secondary school in Nyamira County who have been found pregnant under unclear circumstances.
It was suspected the girls, who are learners at Matutu PAG Mixed Secondary School, became pregnant between April and June 2018.
No arrests have been made in regard to the defilement of the minors that led to the pregnancies.

One of the main health benefits behind edible insects are the large amounts of protein found in these small creatures.
In Nigeria, termites are usually roasted and eaten as food, mostly during the rainy season.
But can termites be the next therapeutic resource for the treatment of asthma, hoarseness and sinusitis, wounds, malnutrition and nutrient deficiency?
Recent studies suggest that, in addition to their ecological importance, termites are a source of medicinal and food resources to various human populations in various locations of the world, showing their potential for being used as an alternative protein source in human or livestock diets, as well as a source for new medicines.
Nigerian researchers have determined the nutrient composition and the toxicant level of the commonly eaten termites (Macrotermes bellicosus) castes in Niger-Delta region of Nigeria.
Macrotermes bellicosus are known to the Ibos as Aku; to the Hausa as Khiyea; Esusun in Yoruba; and Ebu in Annang.
