Police have arrested an Uber driver accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy in Nyali, Mombasa.

The man, Fredrick Mungai, was arrested at City Mall on Tuesday. Mungai had picked the boy from school on Monday following a request by his aunt.

Nyali deputy sub-county police commander Mr Ibrahim Dafalla said the suspect had forced the Light Academy pupil to perform oral sex on him.

“It was reported to us that before the driver could get the boy home, he stopped the vehicle and conducted the indecent act on him,” said the police boss.
