According to reports, police are investigating a case of suspected r*pe of a Cabinet secretary’s daughter by one of his aides in a high-end hotel.
The s3xual assault of the 16-year-old girl is said to have happened at one of the five-star hotels in Kenya on Sunday night.
The suspect, according to Kenyan police sources privy to the investigations, picked up the minor from their home on Sunday afternoon.

The aide then drove her to Nakuru town, where he was booked at the hotel that charges between Sh14,000 and Sh50,000 a night.
It was not immediately clear if the man had booked a separate room for his boss’ daughter or the two spent the night together.
But what is clear is that a case of the minor’s defilement was reported to police on Monday morning.
By this time, the man had already fled the hotel room, prompting a man-hunt by various police teams, including the Flying Squad.
The suspect, a close ally of the CS, was later tracked down and arrested by Flying Squad officers who drove him back to Nakuru.
The wife of the CS was in the company of the officers during the man-hunt and witnessed the arrest.
The suspect was first booked at Bondeni Police Station in Kenya where he was interrogated by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
The girl was rushed to hospital where she was scheduled to undergo medical tests to establish whether she had been defiled.
The suspect, who was set to be arraigned at a magistrate’s court in Nakuru at noon Monday, was later transferred to Nakuru Central Police Station after officers learned that journalists were pursuing the case.
“The man is in police custody at the Nakuru Central Police Station where detectives are investigating the matter,” said Nakuru County Police Commander Hassan Barua.
Police sources privy to the case later told journalists that the case had been “handled”, without giving details. “My friends, this matter has been handled, you better leave for Christmas,” one of the officers said, raising more questions on what business the court officers executed inside the OCPD ‘s office.
