The seven year old was seriously injured by five dogs at the hotel on 28th November where his son and other school children had gone camping.

It is alleged they were three German Shepherd dogs and two others.

“Since IĀ  confronted the said Hotel, they have not apologized neither have they reached out to me,” said Riungu.

In addition, the dad said that the Hotel has refused to take responsibility for what happened despite claiming the dogs were friendly.

“”This impunity of negligence on the part of the hotel proprietorship must be exposed to protect other children from being viciously attacked by the uncontrolled and untamedĀ  dogs,” Riungu added.

According to the prosecutor, his son was walking back to the rooms with his friends to pick up his clothes at around 6 pm when the incident occurred.

Riungu described the proprietors as influential individuals working under impunity.
