He said it happened on Wednesday while his grand-daughter was on an errand. He said the suspect, Imande forcefully grabbed and r*ped her.
According to Daily Post, she advised parents of young children to always get worried whenever a child sent on errands stays longer than expected. She stressed that this could help prevent incident such as this from happening.
When asked why he committed such an act against an innocent little girl, the HIV-Positive man, like others, blamed the devil for his action. He promised not to commit such crime again if set free.
