During the 10-day school holiday, a 20-year-old Kenyan college student was accused of introducing a 14-year-old boy to gayism. On October 11, 2021, Humprey Adamba, a veterinary student, is accused of committing the crime at Vetlab in Kabete, Nairobi county. Adamba is believed to have sent the minor images of naked guys kissing each other over WhatsApp messaging.
He planned to use the photographs to seduce the 14-year-old into performing a sexual act.
According to a police report filed in court, the 14-year-old boy’s father provided his kid his Android phone so that he could complete an assignment during the holidays.
“Upon his return to school the father took his phone back and while he was going through the phone WhatsApp chats he bumped into a chat with a contact saved as Humprey which had obscene images” the report read in part.
The complainant was shocked to see photos of nude men kissing one another, videos of male persons dancing provocatively with inner garments, together with love messages from the accused.
“It hit his father that his minor was being introduced to gayism, he immediately called the father of the accused” the report read. The father of the accused went to the complainant’s house, where he was informed of his son’s behaviour and was willing to hand him over because he had also noticed some fishy behaviour.
The accused was arrested and taken to Spring Valley police station and upon interrogation, it was established that he did not only send suggestive photos to the minor but also videos of gay sex. He pleaded not guilty before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Wendy Micheni, and was released on a bond of Ksh200,000 or cashbail of Ksh100,000.
