Teen missionary charged with raping African kids in orphanage

Matthew Durham

A teenage missionary on a mission trip to Kenya is accused of raping girls and boys in an African orphanage, KTLA.com reports.

Matthew Durham traveled to Kenya with the organization Upendo, which assists orphaned Kenyan children with housing, food, and clothing.

Durham, 19, is charged with raping 3 young girls at a Kenyan children’s home, forcing young boys to perform oral sex on him and instructing other children to watch. He is being held without bond in his home state of Oklahoma.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The complaint alleges that Durham, who traveled to Kenya several times, “requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

The affidavit states Durham “often touched [the children] in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

After being confronted by a suspicious caretaker, Durham confessed.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

    TOKYO (Kyodo) — Chinese authorities executed on Friday a Japanese man who had been sentenced to death in connection with stimulant drug smuggling, Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said.
    The identity of the man is not immediately known.

    Kishida told a news conference that while it is up to China to decide what kind of penalty should be imposed on criminals, “We have conveyed to the Chinese side that we have taken a heightened interest in the death penalty handed down to Japanese nationals.”

    China informed Japan of the execution in the morning, Kishida said. A court in Dalian in northeastern China conveyed the information to the Japanese consular office in the city, according to the Foreign Ministry.

    In China, the smuggling of 50 grams or more of amphetamines is an offense punishable by death. In 2010, four Japanese were executed in China for stimulant drug smuggling.

    If them Kenyans don’t get his azz back over there to face their punish I know they been bribed. Why is he back on US soil? Cause these child rapists take care of their own. There is no reason for him being back in the states. Mama & daddy can’t save him now. Let him face his punishment like a man.
